In essence, the Severe 3. Supernova is Tyler Severence's 3rd signature model.
From the Severe 2010 (67g version), the weight and width haven't budged, making this an appropriate successor to the Severe line. Yet, there is a major difference noticeable when you take a look at it from the side. The inside of the rim has been gouged out, and the entire body has been smoothed out, changing the distribution of weight for a better feel. The axle is no longer visible from the side, also giving it a new outer appearance.
Moreover, the body is constructed of 7075 Aluminum (aircraft-quality), increasing the stability even further from the already rock-solid Severe.
From the raised response area to the excellent balance, Supernova has taken all the good points of the Severe's design and developed it even further; they really didn't miss anything with the Supernova, and their careful design has yielded fantastic results. Up there with the SuperStar and Genesis, the Supernova is YoYoFactory's newest "sure thing."
The Supernova has been especially popular in YoYoFactory's lineup, and used widely at all levels of competition. In 2012, the Supernova has been "Re-Launched," moving its production from America to China. Aside from some very minor adjustments in weight, size and shape, the Supernova's basic specs remain unchanged.
Also, the Re-Launch version's body material has changed from 7075 Aluminum to 6061 Aluminum, maintaining a high quality, durable yo-yo with a lower price.
Comes with a YYF Multitool, 2x spare CBC Pads and a spare Flat Bearing (NOT SPEC bearing)

Super smooth and nice weight. Colors are great as well. Classic YYF profile feels great in the hand.
This yoyo is very smooth. It's good for horizontal style tricks and you can do pretty good grinds with it. It's also a lot quieter than most yoyofactory yoyos. If it start to spin on its side almost to the point where it's a UFO it won't spin out on you. It gives enough time for you to do a clean bind. the gap is good for any kind of trick where it requires bouncing from string to string. I would recommend upgrading to this yoyo for anyone trying to learn more difficult tricks and doesn't want to spend $100+ on a yoyo.
Feels light when playing, and also stable;
Very good at regen tricks (doesn't wobble);
when doing 5a or body tricks it is easilly controllable
Can't do thumb grind, also hard for horizontal grind;
The spin slows quickly as the fast-paced trick is played
