Candy Dice Pro Deep Groove
Double-wrap your string around the deep groove in this dice to adjust your string length. Brought to you by Shingo "Terry" Terada's Candy Dice, this is his signature model counterweight.
The Concept of Candy Dice is to make it easier for anyone to pick up 5A, and this is the "another version" model of the original Candy Dice Pro. This counterweight is the signature model of 2001 X-division World Champ and Candy Dice producer, Shingo "Terry" Terada.
It's super easy to use, just open up the finger hole of your string, insert the dice, and cinch the string down on the groove. BOOM, you've switched from 1A to 5A.
This version has an extra deep groove so you can double-wrap around it, and adjust the length of your string. Lots of players like Terry like to play 1A with a slightly longer string than 5A, so in the spirit of keeping things easy and simple for the player, this Candy Dice lets you use the same string regardless of which style you want to throw.
5A play, which has you manipulating both the yo-yo and the counterweight, can have a steep learning curve. A shorter string can really help make 5A easier for beginners, as it gives you easier control. As you gain confidence, you can try a longer string just by unwrapping the extra wraps.
These dice are 3D printed. There may be slight variations from one dice to the other. The layered texture of the dice is a result of the manufacturing process. In case any of the joints begin to fail, they can be easily repaired with wood glue.
