C3yoyodesign - Initiator
The Initiator has been updated with an improved spacer and axle system.
C3's first looping yo-yo has been redesigned thanks to the input from player feedback. The biggest improvements have been in the spacer and axle system, making it even easier to handle and maintain. Right out of the box, Initiator is a perfect fit for players new to looping, and by switching to the metal spacer you can get competition-level looping performance with minimum effort.
The new axle is much stronger than the original Initiator, made from a more robust material that is much harder to break. Thanks to this, C3 has also reduced the chance of your yo-yo gaps getting messed up due to a mid-air collision. As for the performance itself, it doesn't matter what your level, or what kind of looping trick you attempt, the Initiator is a solid throw for players of all kinds. C3 has made great strides towards the ideal looping yo-yo with their new Initiator.
Of course, you can modify the responsiveness of the yo-yo with looping oil. K-String normal works best for us!.

One of my favourite looping yoyos. Great response and it feels great in hand.
Compared to the previous versions this initiator feels like a 720 but more solid feel and more sleep time. The only thing I didn't like is the spacer. They make the gap width pretty wide that its hard to loop on them with normal strings although you can use fat string to adjust the loop trajectory.
