C3yoyodesign x Porykon - Pory Crash
C3X PROJECT: C3yoyodesign x PoryKon – "PORY CRASH"
In 2017, C3X released "FINGERSPIN™️" - Kohta Watanabe x Ethan Wong signature yoyo and made the fingerspin style play go viral. After 3 years, C3yoyodesign now crossovers with the professional 5A counterweight brand "PoryKon" and release a yoyo which brings high performance in both 1a and 5a – "PORY CRASH".
As the name implies, "PORY CRASH" combined PoryKon’s concepts on 5A and C3yoyodesign “Crash” series design concepts.
From the body, you can see the combination of both the "Galaxydiver" and "Gamma Crash". Owner of PoryKon Denny Ko Kwan Ho is a big fan of those yoyos. He also used to these to not only practice, but to also compete in contests. Co-owner and designer, Lowhand Ng Wang Kit, had discussed several times with the C3 design team and finally decided to design a bi-materials yoyo (POM/PC with stainless steel ring) - "PORY CRASH"!
We are focusing on a wider sized yoyo as the main design concept. Although PoryCrash's width is 1.7mm less than the "Galaxydiver", the diameter is 1.9mm larger. The multi-step cut on the body help reduce the body weight, whilst the rounded edge of rim provides a better feeling while playing 5A style.
Bi-material in POM or PC body installed with stainless steel ring make a better weight distribution, not only increasing the spin time and power, but also decreasing the burden on the hands when playing 5A. Plus, it brings smooth feelings towards 1A style play.
Because POM and PC has a different density, it brings different weight and feel, giving more choices for different styled players.

Yoyo is neither heavy nor floaty but feels very stable despite despite being a hybrid. Definitely, one of my main throws these days. Got myself the pink version.
