Thesis Yoyos - Aventus
A bimetal version of "Invictus".
This is a bimetal version of the company's monometal Invictus. However, the shape around the rim and the side face are different, and the appearance shows that the company has optimized the details for its bimetal configuration.
The characteristics have also changed, and rather than the floating feeling that was originally present, it is now a type where the weight and response can be felt firmly. It seems that the characteristics of bimetal were added to Invictus as a base, and then the weight and some of the shapes were changed to improve ease of handling.
In addition to the power of the bimetal being loaded, the straightforward operability that cannot be hidden has a somewhat Invictus-like atmosphere. This casual comfort can be seen as the greatest individuality of this work, an excellent work with total balance.

My son approached me one day asking if he could give me some money to order him a new yoyo. He said he'd "done his homework," compared it to other options he'd had in mind, and this was the one he wanted. I did some research on my own, confirmed the boy had indeed done his part, and ordered it for him. After eleven days of shipping, door to door from Japan to California, the Aventus had arrived.
He spent a good amount of time throwing it around, landing his usual tricks and combos, before declaring the Aventus to be tied for first with his favorite yoyo: the Outlier 3. At his suggestion I gave it a try to see how it played. My first thought was, "This plays a lot like the Miracle." Extremely high praise.
The Aventus is very easy to play. Tricks are just easier to land, binds are snappy, it's extremely stable, and it has excellent spin time. It's also very smooth and the finish is impeccable. Grinds and finger spins are clean and satisfying. It doesn't have quite the rim bias as the Miracle, but the difference in play definitely does not match the difference in price.
If you're looking for a fun, easy to play, confidence inspiring yoyo, the Aventus is a top pick. You'd be getting much more than your money's worth.
