Top Yo - Colossus VI
Based on the 5th Colossus, but even wider than before! This is the new full metal flagship for Top Yo.
Top Yo's flagship series, the top class cost performance Colossus gets its 6th edition.
The basic shape is inherited from the previous version, but with the body being stretched to meet the current trend of wider metal yo-yos. By the numbers it's only 2mm difference, but what a difference it makes! Super easy to mount on the string, and even feels like a power-up on top of that.
Along with the size balance is a weight balance. That body is stretched out and so are its sleeps! This new version is worthy of the Colossus series, and it's a proper evolution of the family line. Top Yo has much to be proud of!
The spherical shape of Colossus 6 is redesigned based on the fifth generation,
and the design elements are retained while the proportions and lines are adjusted and reconstructed for grip and distribution.
It is also the widest Colossus up to now (44mm).
The front of the Colossus 6 adopts a multi-line segment design with a unified style with the side spheres, which is visually more uniform.
The center design discards the classic TOPYO raised structure (such as Mercury, Colossus 3, and Colossus 5), but inherits the recessed structure of Colossus 4 and make it more deeper,
not only to optimize the performance of the finger spin, but also to change the whole weight distribution from the center.
While the outer ring has enough weight to ensure spin time, the central ring distribution also increases the control agility when playing.
The weight distribution is as mentioned before, with the outer ring having enough weight to ensure spin power,
the control agility is increased by the inner ring distribution. This makes Colossus 6 more flexible compared to its predecessor.
In order to achieve a deeper center design without bringing too much weight to the center part.
The center shaft abandoned the 10mm stainless steel long screws used in the previous five generations and replaced them with 8mm carbon steel short screws.
Colossus 6 also adopts the sandblast profile + glossy response area.
The side sand blast finish ensures the performance of grinding tricks and prevents the yoyo from "stopping" due to mistakes when doing the tricks ,and make sure the sphere does not "sticky".
The high gloss finish on the front brings a shiny look and feel.
The glossy response area also avoids the spinning loss and abrasion of the sandblast finish to the string.
This time we also modified the structure of the bearing seat, deepened the depth of the slot around the bearing seat, it reduce some weight from the very center.
The logo design adopts the classic Colossus outer ring totem style, but reduces the entire outer rim area from the previous one to only half area. The scheme is provided by TOPYO's royal artist Liu Liu, who is also the designer of the previous generation of Colossus logos.
This is the best Colossus so far, maybe we will meet the same bottleneck in the future, but we will not stop moving forward.
The Colossus series carries the growth and changes of the brand TOPYO,
it is the annual answer we give to ourselves,
