Sturm Panzer - RY-011 Gairyusen
This unusual model has a sense of lightness, while using the V5 Catch Parts system
The V5 catch parts system is designed to give you greatly improved spin times over normal yo-yos. Keeping the string away from touching the spinning body of the yo-yo, the parts greatly improve sleep times and preserves the balance of the yo-yo, making it a perfect system for just about any playstyle. Sturm Panzer got interested in this unique design, and pushed it beyond the limits of monometal and bimetal design. If there's a final boss in yo-yoing, he's wielding one of these for sure.
Because of the construction, it was originally heavy and harder to control, and there was a lot of weight in the center of the yo-yo. But the V5 fixes these issues and weighs in at 61 grams, for a light, tight spin that is suitable for a D-series bearing. The RY-011 Gairyusen is an excellent model with a well-executed design.
Comment from the Maker
This yo-yo uses the Center Trac CP-06 D 9-ball bearing. If you want to push your yo-yo's performance even further, we recommend swapping the bearing out for the Dif-e-Yo Konkave bearing of the same size. The V5 catch parts use two flat size C bearings (one on each size, see the video below for a demonstration). Please understand that you take responsibility for the modifications you perform on your yo-yo.
This yo-yo uses the CP-09 Black Attack Pads (Eco Mini), and comes with two spare pads.
Regarding vibes, we have tested each V5 system yo-yo to ensure that they are playable within acceptable parameters, with no trouble from vibes. Some small cosmetic blemishes may appear from manufacture, assembly, packing or shipping, but they also have no affect on how it plays. We don't recommend removing the caps, as it will not noticeably improve performance.
