Yi Chenghao - Blitz Ball Ver. 2.0
Highly customizable metal spacer looping model.
This looping yo-yo was originally developed by 2018 Asian Champion Yi Chenghao. This model is ver 2.0 with improved starburst response.
The basic specs is a system that fixes the gap with metal spacers, and the initial state has a stronger return. The return can also be adjusted with the included shim or a spacer (sold separately).
Without thinking too hard, K-string normal or slim string (for looping) can be used to create a looping yo-yo with a lighter feel, which is recommended for beginners.
Since the slightest difference in looping can greatly affect the feel of the yo-yo, there are many parts available for fine tuning.
First, two types of shims are included. The wider shim is inserted between the spacer and the body to make the string feel more in contact with the starburst.
Thin shims can be placed between the spacer and the bearing to widen the gap without changing the return feeling.
There are three types of spacers (sold separately) that can be combined to create a variety of settings.
The cap can be removed and customized to any color you like, and an LED kit is also available to attach it to the main unit (lights up during sleep, double-sided tape is recommended to secure). This is a piece that will be useful not only for practicing tricks, but also for stage performances.
Please read before use:
In order to allow players to use the settings recommended by Yi Chenghao, the string initially installed is Yi Chenghao string, which is a very thin string. If you use Yi Chenghao string as it is, the string will break due to frictional heat.
It is recommended that the following two points be filled with oil to reduce friction between the starburst and the string.
Put oil for looping under the bearing on the axle. Apply a small amount of string trick oil near the bearing, where the string begins to twist (above the starburst area).
