Shuriken Yoyos - Juji
Super wide with a flat rim, this full metal yo-yo is a lightweight that packs a heavy punch!
A little bigger than a standard full size yo-yo at 58mm, it almost feels like the width was stretched straight out with its super wide flat rim. The resulting yo-yo "throws" a pretty powerful punch!
The Juji has a hefty presence in your hand, and feels decidedly big, but at only 62 grams it is actually quite light, giving an unexpected playfeel from your initial impression and a surprising nimbleness despite its size. The result is a real delight to play and a departure from the norm. If you've been yo-yoing a long time Juji will provide you with a fresh new outlook on your practice.
The flat rim gives a decent amount of spin, but the result of this weight distribution is a playfeel that's a little bit narrower than you'd expect at first glance. We wouldn't say that this is a standard all-arounder that's meant for everyone's hands. Rather, because of this unusual playfeel makes it stand out amongst the others, and defines the Juji's unique appeal.
The name "Juji" can refer to the Japanese kanji for the number 10 (that looks a bit like a plus sign: 十), and indeed there's a small logo engraved on the inner rim on one side that looks like a Shuriken (ninja star) in the shape of a plus.
Wide rims usually come with a narrow catch zone which isn’t ideal for most modern tricks. The easiest way to overcome this major drawback is to make the overall width even wider! JUJI’s wide rims can disperse the impact force efficiently when it returns to your hand and you can land your tricks easily because of the decently wide catch zone.
JUJI is pretty light weighing in at 61.75g. Taking advantage of 7068 aluminium’ density, the thickness of the wall is around 1 mm, and the rest of the weight goes to the rims. The rim weight and the relatively large diameter (58.98mm) give JUJI some extra power and stability at such a light weight.
JUJI feels floaty but it is stable and powerful enough for you to throw any tricks on it!
