YoYoFactory - Essence (Old) (Outlet) [Charity]
A majority of the sales of items purchased on this product page will be donated to the 2024 Noto Peninsula Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund.
Rewind will donate to the Japanese Red Cross Society's "2024 Noto Peninsula Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund (Ishikawa, Toyama, and Niigata Prefectures).”
(If there is another product in our store with the same name, that other product is not eligible for this donation. Only sales of items on this product page will be donated.)
[IMPORTANT] Please consider purchasing other products from Rewind at the same time.
If you purchase only items eligible for donation, you will pay the shipping cost for the donation & we will need to pay the remaining shipping cost. Our shipping fee is set at a flat rate for the benefit of our customers, but it actually costs more than that and we pay the difference. We also pay a portion of the credit transaction fee.
It will be inefficient for both you and Rewind to pay shipping and processing costs only for the donation item.
You can donate more money if you directly donate the amount (if you include the shipping and handling costs you would have paid).
We ask for your cooperation so that we can continue to offer the donation option so you can "purchase your favorite yo-yo(s) and donate at the same time."
You can also donate individually without making a purchase.
If you would like to only make a donation, we recommend a reputable organization such as the Japanese Red Cross Society.
The most efficient, quick, and reliable way to donate and help the areas affected by the earthquake is to make an individual donation.

There may be scratches, uneven coloring, or blurring on the body that is not a problem for normal specifications, but is part of the product specifications.

This is the second of the one-two punch of this double signature yo-yo with Izuru Hasumi and Akitoshi Tokubuchi lending their full weight to the blow! Following up from the full titanium Metavity, they collaborated and came up with a shared vision for the last yo-yo you'll ever need if you combine their styles and special talents and pushed them to their highest potential.
Starting with the yo-yo's key characteristics, its shape is based on the Metavity, with the diameter of the Pragma (Izuru's other signature throw), and the width of the Will (Akitoshi's other signature), making for a unique hybrid of those three excellent models. Borrowing its fine balance and settings from those high end models, it has the same swagger in your hand as any other yo-yo destined for the contest stage. The full potential of its metal body is realized with incredible long and stable sleeps.
During tricks, you definitely feel its presence through the string, but it spins remarkably true and holds its angle beautifully. To consider this an entry model is to demonstrate the raising of the bar of yo-yo design over the years.
Izuru and Akitoshi both insisted from the beginning that this yo-yo be easy for anyone to get in hand, and so they designed it to maintain the essense of top-shelf yo-yos.
Amazing as your first or latest metal yo-yo, it has the capability to match whatever energy you throw at it. They refused to compromise on price or functionality, and YoYoFactory delivered as promised when they were both satisfied with the result. Whether you're gearing up for a contest, or just looking for a casual throw to practice your moves, Essence belongs on your tray, in your quiver, and in your hand.
Great as a step-up model for your first full metal, or high-end model, Essence will see you all the way to the contest stage, and depending on how much you practice, all the way to the podium!
