Candy Dice Pro Bacchus feat. Shingo Terada
This Candy Dice is blessed by the god of drink, and appears as a miniature beer keg!
This Candy Dice was made for the Bacchus, the collaboration model between 2001 X-division champion Shingo "Terry" Terada and Turning Point. It comes in the form of a miniature beer keg, a nod to the meaning behind the yo-yo's name. Originally just designed as a playful play on the name, this re-release as of May of 2021 has been refined further, so that not only the details are improved, but the actual playfeel has been upgraded to make it a more effective counterweight! Now it works just as well for practical use as it does as a display/collector's model.
It's still in the shape of a cylinder, so please note that its trajectories will be slightly affected by its aerodynamics. Give it a try, and you may find it interesting!
*To evoke the look and feel of a long-used beer keg, the design includes some rough shapes and dents. Please note that the small imperfections in the shape of the "keg" are by design.

About Candy Dice:
2001 X Division world champion and REWIND Shibuya store manager, Shingo "Terry" Terada joined forces with 3D printing mastermind Hideki Toho (AKA YOYOMAKER) to focus solely on the other side of the 5A string, focusing exclusively on counterweights.
"We want to foster a style of 5A play that makes it easy for anyone to pick up and try" was the concept at its heard, and so they innovated new ways to easily add a counterweight to a 1A yo-yo. This ease of use set them apart from other options, and they've never stopped innovating, with many collaborations with other makers, including the original Duncan. They keep things fresh with cool new colors in limited runs, making them great collectables.
Small layers in the dice face are part of the design thanks to the manufacturing process.
Candy Dice are 3D printed, and may have small variations from one to the next
Candy Dice are made of plastic. They are not actually candy, please don't put them in your mouth!
These dice are not indestructible, hard play and impacts against hardened surfaces such as concrete may damage the dice. Please play responsibly.
