C3yoyodesign - Flawless Air

Lightweight polycarbonate version of the Flawless high-end off string model.

This is the signature model of Rei Iwakura, THE long-reigning 4A division champion. This is another version of his signature model, the high-end Flawless. This is a lightweight version made of polycarbonate, which is harder than the original POM material.

The milling process allows for a higher initial precision than that of the usual injection-molded polycarbonate, and allows for a design that has been shaved down to remove all the "fat" from the body. In other words, it still has the high basic performance of a high-end model, but is priced very competitively.

The lightweight body and hard texture of this model also help to create a stress-free control feel that is both agile and straightforward. Looking at these characteristics alone, it seems to be a different product from the regular version, which is more conscious of strength and power. But in fact, the compatibility is so high that you can easily switch between them without much discomfort. You can throw it and enjoy both the similarities and differences between the Flawless series. As with the standard version, this is a level of perfection suitable for mastering off string play.

Flawless Air is another "final form" of the high-spec off string model "Flawless".

Review by Rei Iwakura

The main differences between the Flawless and the current Flawless are the materials and weight.

Compared to the major specs of today's off-string models, the current Flawless is relatively heavy. However, in competitions where you want absolute stability/security while executing tricks, or in outdoor performances where the wind blows, its specs are a big help and benefit.

However, for riders who perform a lot of quick turnaround/regenerative tricks, or for those who are just starting off-string, or for small children, the weight often puts them off. The new Flawless Air is significantly lighter, from 84.1g to 73.6g. It is now a model that can be recommended for a wider range of styles and levels of players.

In particular, the polycarbonate material provides a smooth stringing action, and the ability to perform tricks with a minimum of force and the exhilarating feeling of being able to perform regeneration-type tricks that lead to more and more connections, all of which make off-stringing a very attractive material. In solo ham-type tricks, the Air's unique advantages include "smooth trajectory changeover" and "increased stability in anti-spin-type tricks as the distance between yo-yos is easily opened up.

We recommend this yoyo not only to those who have never had a chance to try Flawless because of its weight and feel, but also to those who have been using Flawless for a long time, as a partner to enjoy off stringing style more widely and to push it to its limits.

And one more thing, from a performer's point of view. The color variations and shades of this model, based on a clear body, give it a great presence on stage, and I feel that it is a great weapon to enhance your performance.

While inheriting the concept of the Flawless yo-yo, which is to push off string, the Flawless Air is a yo-yo that offers a different kind of answer.
