Turning Point - Hinemosu
Takeshi Matsuura's new signature model sports a rare titanium rime.
This new high end signature model for the prodigy Takeshi Matsuura sports a large outer rim shrouding the aluminum body in titanium. This choice of materials is a departure from the current trends, which usually focuses on heavier metals for rim weights. But there's no denying the results!
The shape seems to be based on the Colony or Mustang, with a slim 42mm wide body, It still has an easy catch and high string hit percentage, but can also pass through small spaces to make intricate string tricks easier. This gives a lot of control that can improve your high-end trick play.
The unusual bit is that the rim is made from a relatively lighter, but stronger and more durable material. While most are made of stainless steel, this yo-yo uses titanium. To make up for this relative density, the rim is made larger and wider than usual. It creates a smoother sense of weight distribution, and is a great ally to your practice, with a light but powerful sense of control. That sleep stays solid unti the last bits of spin are squeezed out of it, and still manage a tight, sweet bind.
