C3yoyodesign - IX

Taking Innovation to the eXtreme! IX is a versatile yo-yo designed for 4A and 5A play.

The IX is the new signature model of 2018 5A World Champion and 2021 5A Japana Champion, Sora Ishikawa. He's been awarded several "Extreme Trick" prizes for developing and performing some pretty mind-bending tricks that often hop the fence between play styles. Overseeing the development of the IX, Sora's concept was to make a yo-yo that isn't just excellent for plain string trick play, but can even be used for off string practice! Thus the name "Innovation eXtreme," or IX was given to his new signature throw.

Since Sora's excellent counterweight playstyle consists mostly of bold moves, and doesn't require a thin body for delicate mounts, it made sense to give the IX a very wide body, to catch even the most audacious tricks. This made it easier to land all kinds of string tricks, and even off string tricks. The midship counterweight gives plenty of spin without impeding your recoveries from dropped counterweight moves and off string misses. Especially for 5A play, this approach has resulted in a great tool to help bring your freestyle to a whole new level!

The IX comes with three different spacers designed specifically for either 1A, 5A, or 4A style tricks. Just by switching out the spacer, you can adjust the gap to maximize the style of play you prefer. Although 1A and 5A are both string trick styles, the 5A spacer leaves the gap slightly narrower than 1A, giving you tighter binds that is demanded by counterweight play. If you want a looser feel, you can still use the 1A spacers for 5A play. Or you can blaze your own path and find a setting that works best for your personal style.

Spacer Gap Information:
1A: 4.36mm (black)
5A: 4.26mm (purple)
4A 2.12mm (silver)

*Purple / Black Rim comes with Fu-Ring.
