As with all Sengoku yo-yos, their latest design pays homage to a famous samurai: Hattori Hanzo. With a resemblace of a Shuriken, this design was an obvious choice for Hattori Hanzo who is thought of as the one of the most famous and most bad-ass Ninjas from the Sengoku era!
The Hattori is probably the most extreme design in the Sengoku lineup. The holes cut into the yo-yo are not cosmetic and they are not some gimmick; They are there for weight distribution and paired with the stainless steel rings they offer some of the best rim weight you can achieve in yo-yo design! The perfect blend of aesthetics and performance!
The cutout design also provides less resistance when changing position, especially in horizontal play, which gives the Hattori an extremely stable and maneuverable feel through complex combos. The Steel rings give it a serious spin power to compensate the air resistance generated from spinning, which makes a pleasant wind noise in play that makes it that much more fun to throw! AND, thanks to the cut-out design, the yo-yo is see-through in play!
