Thank you for the support, but more important than the story behind is the design.
It is a waste for a bi-metal to be heavy, normal throws are more than enough, the extra power is not really needed.
But in the low weights, a bi-metal shines, it does what a single metal one canīt, be light, and keep mad torque, but I didnīt want to do yet another bi metal, so I pushed more than half weight into the rims,
the rings weight is more than 50% of the body weight (aluminum 20g and steel 10.1 per halve).

Iīm happy to see people has good expectations, Iīm pretty sure it wonīt disappoint you, it  is lighter, floatier and faster than the draupnir and it spins longer. 
If this is true, then my $??? will no longer be mine  Shocked

Yeah! I want to pre-order a pair.

I canīt write properly in Japanese, but Iīll ask my wife to do it in the future, right now my target is the Western Market.

Why not target the Japanese Market and Western Market at the same time? Japanese people really need your yoyos!

I have translated Sturm Panzer's story book from Japanese into English. Now I'm not too confident translating the opposite way around, but I'll be more than glad to provide you with a Japanese version of your words. Your wife can double check my work. That'll be much easier on her rather than translating from scratch.

Japanese yoyo companies have too much Western theme. Your company having Japanese theme and producing made in Japan yoyo is the most closest company to have the right to claim it's indeed a Japanese company.

Not precisely, if the Draupnir were to resize to that diameter the steel rings would be much smaller, Nobunagaīs rings are heavier than Draupnirīs, and the body much lighter, though somehow the feeling on the string is similar, the play is different.

Sengoku could slash my wallet big time if only I didn't know how to budget.

I have my eyes on Hideyoshi now. Too bad I'll have to give up on Nobunaga. I wish I could afford to buy every single Sengoku.  Cry

The Hideyoshi will release maybe until summer, it needs a lot of work, it is very hard to make a bi-metal smooth, and if you add another ring is even more.  You have plenty of time to get budget.  Also, the Nobunaga plays better than any other in the market, I already sent some samples for reviews (so youīll hear how good it is from neutral reviewers like Shai Hulud).

Also, the company is starting, the Nobunaga will fund the Hideyoshi, if it doesnīt sell well, the Hideyoshi project will be cancelled. If you like our designs, please support it by buying the Nobunaga. (after the Hideyoshi a Titanium bi-metal is coming (yes, Ti body and an even denser material on rims!). But all the projects need to be funded with the previous one or theyīll be only on paper.
