W1LD - W!LD
High-end bimetal model from Chinese champion Chen Yang.
W1LD is a competition yo-yo brand founded by Chen Yang, the three-time consecutive Chinese National champion from 2017 to 2019. Their first model is Cheng Yang's own signature model, W!ld.
The rim dominates the outermost edge of the H-profile, from the profile view it appears to be completely wrapped in stainless steel. Combined with the slightly larger diameter, you can feel its power the moment you throw it, and it responds well when you change direction. The edge is dropped very low to reduce sleep loss as much as possible, and thanks to its rims it is dependably stable even during intense play and horizontal tricks.
This is a yo-yo that was truly born for competition.
I bought a Sakura pink for spring 2023 and I absolutely love this yo-yo. Shape is nice and catchable. Play on the string is very nimble but still feels like I know where the yo-yo is at all times. The color and engraving are beautiful and the experience when opening the box is so unique. It feels so premium. It is worth purchasing!
