onedrop - Fat Tire
The super flat rim reminds us some trauma on the road, but the Fat Tire is a surprisingly straightforward and fully functional middle size yo-yo.
Moreso than the Kuntosh and Dan, the Fat Tire really takes the "flat rim" design to the extreme. There's a very specific feeling in the hand that's a noticeable departure from the average middle size yo-yo, and makes it feel quite a bit bigger than it actually is. But despite that, the playfeel is really great and straightforward, playing like a standard yo-yo of the same size and weight class. Compared to other flat rim models, it has a snappy, light sense of power to it, and follows your lead with ease.
Unlike wide-rimmed models that focus of delivery power, the Fat Tire lets you feel the power and stability of full metal with the slightest throw, making it a great option for a casual or daily carry-around model.
Compatible with side effects, you can change the look and feel of your Fat Tire, as well as having minute control over the weight. Personalize it with the design and color of your choice!
The story of this design is exactly what you might think. David wanted fat rims. Really really really fat rims. Also a slightly concave catch zone and Side Effects. The Machinist isn’t a huge fan of concave catch zones, but agreed on the general feature set. He then knocked the design out of the park.
It’s bold and beautiful. Feels great in the hand and very unique on the string. Side Effects and lots of love included.
