YoYoPalace - Journey
This yo-yo is Ahmad Kharisma's new signature model, signifying his long yo-yo journey to excellence.
2013-2015 Indonesian 1A champion. 2013-2014 Asia Pacific 1A champion. With accomplishments in yo-yo competitions and organizations around the world, Ahmad Kharisma has enjoyed a long Journey to the development of his new signature model. It has a soft hand and a very comfortable grip, but this bimetal design packs a lot of horsepower into it!
The wide and thick rim is inserted into the inner face, which boosts power and stability in a way that's unique from other rim designs. It's heavier than it looks, and gives you a real sense of power when you pick it up. It's clear that this yo-yo is designed for long combos.
The side face logo displays all 77 yo-yo contests Kharisma has participated in during his 12 year yo-yo journey.
YOYOPALACE - Journey - Ahmad Kharisma ’s Signature
World-class top player of YOYOPALACE. Since Kharisma played yoyo in 2008, he has rapidly risen, won the first place in Asia Pacific Yo-Yo Championships in 2013 and 2014, and frequently showed his excellent skills and unique style in the World Yo-Yo Contest finals in the past few years.
YOYOPALACE's high-end flagship yo-yo.
According to Kharisma's preference and the current global players' demand for performance, we determined the shape and size of Journey. Under its round and delicate arc, there is a strong skeleton. As for its weight distribution, don't be shocked by such a large stainless steel ring or worry about whether it is overweight! Because the shape of the stainless steel ring is attached to the arc of the aluminum body, Journey has a very smooth and uniform weight distribution. In addition, the Integrated Double Rings structure of the outer part provides enough sense of gravity and air stability. In the end, it is presented in the form of the moderate diameter and enough width, which means that you could easily control it and do almost all styles of tricks with Journey, no matter that you're on the stage for competition or relaxing with a throw.
Journey is equipped with YOYOPALACE’s exclusive Integrated Double Rings Design Patent. It belongs to Answer Series.
1. About the name
This year is Ahmad Kharisma's twelfth year of playing yo-yo. He said, “I was ambitious and never feel enough about my achievements, until I’m at the point where I can’t compete much and i feel like i don’t enjoy what score the most at contest. But somehow I still play with yo-yo everyday. I realize the most important thing is enjoying the game itself. So I would love to call my yo-yo Journey.”
2. About the logo
When Kharisma accidentally showed us his career record in the past 12 years, we were deeply shocked, 77 games! The title of each game is just like a footmark of one’s journey, so we created this image, which connects all the competitions that Kharisma participated in with circuitous lines, symbolizing the up and down of his journey. The ? mark represents a mysterious and unpredictable future. We finally succeeded in carving it onto the yo-yo with precision laser technology.
