Like an outer rim version of the Palpitation, Colony is Takeshi Matsuura's second Japan-based bimetal signature model.
Aside from being a 5A world champion, Takeshi has also held the Japanese 1A championship title for consecutive years. His new signature yo-yo, the Colony is very similar to the Palpitation, with almost the same size and shape and weight, but the outer rim makes it a completely different beast. Designed to extend sleep time for long, complex tricks, the rim itself extends deep into body, giving it the signature power and stability of bimetal yo-yos.
Check out the side profile, the design is meant to give you the maximum amount of power and stability in the narrowest body possible, to aid in complex and intricate string tricks where the yo-yo must pass through small spaces.
This is the yo-yo Takeshi used for his 1A freestyle at the 2016 World Yo-Yo Contest in Cleveland.
Takeshi Matsuura’s new signature yoyo which was used at Worlds16. This model has very close size
compare to his his other model”Palpitation”, but the difference weight distribution occurred
because of outer weight ring and changed in shape makes this yoyo totally different.
