Turning Point - Shuttle
Shuttle is Hironori Mii's new signature model, the world's first yo-yo dedicated to rockets!
This is the signature model of Turning Point production and REWIND's president, Hironori Mii. This is the world's first yo-yo dedicated to rocket tricks, which is not of the off string style that he used to win the 2001 world championship X division, but a completely different type of yo-yo trick, the rocket that he is low-key quite good at.
The Rocket is a trick in which a responsive yo-yo is caught by pulling the string away from the fingers after a sleeper, and then throwing the yo-yo high into the air. Because of its flashy appearance, the Rocket is often used in performances and is one of the most popular basic tricks. The "Rocket into the Pocket," in which the yo-yo is caught directly into the pocket, is another popular and well-known trick, and Mii has developed an arrangement of these tricks that he has performed in battle tournaments in the past.
In order to withstand the impact of a fall when a rocket fails to get caught, this new version is made of POM material, which is known for its durability, and the shaft circumference was made extremely thick to increase the strength of the rocket. The normal shape and slightly narrower body are designed to make it easier to rocket into the pocket.
The most notable feature of this work is the return balance. The perfect gap prevents the string from returning with the slightest shock when removing the string from your fingers, but when you throw it up, it will rewind the string firmly even if the sleep is weak.
The narrow effective width makes string tricks difficult to perform, and of course, it does not have the return strength of a looping yo-yo, so it is no exaggeration to say that it is not suitable for any other tricks. We hope you will find your own unique collection of Rocket tricks with this super-specialized yo-yo that was created just for Rocket.
