Turning Point - St. Elmo
St. Elmo is a monometal version of the Palpitation.
This is the signature model of 5A world champion, Takeshi Matsuura, and is a monometal version based on his other signature model, the Palpitation. With a width similar to the Max Bet and Positron, St. Elmo clocks in at a healthy full-sized 42mm, but has a lighter playfeel than the numbers indicate; it feels even lighter than the powerful-but-diminutive Leviathan series. It has a sense of power and stability that is clearly inherited from the bimetal version's weight distribution, but floats on the string like an angel on a cloud. The combination of bimetal power with monometal playfeel is a gift from heaven.

one of the best yoyos i've ever have, especially, in terms of playing techs & slacks. the silver raw color makes it way more charming in my hands.
thank you so much Rewind. love the products, very fast delivery time !
The st. elmo is an excellent mid sized yoyo with a very comfortable shape. Its feel on the string is very pleasant; it glides smoothly and reacts easily to the slightest push. Weight is not too light or heavy and is decently stable. Only nitpick is that it tilts easily during hgher stress horizontal combos.
It is quiet, light and it has no vibration. But it turns fast when you throw it. When you don't have enough money to buy other good but expensive yoyos, buy this
