The Diplomat is the new signature yo-yo for Recess team member Colin Beckford. After making finals last year at Worlds, placing 6th at Nationals, and 4th at BAC, Colin is well versed in what makes a great competition level yo-yo and the Diplomat is exactly that!
Machined from 7075 Aluminum, the Diplomat has some added durability and sports a brighter and shinier finish that really stands out while performing. It has a nice curved h-shape profile that fits comfortably in the hand and offers a wide catch zone that is exactly what Colin needs to hit all his complex and risky tricks.
From the first throw you can tell that Recess really distributed the weight perfectly on this model. They managed to achieve a surprisingly powerful feel on the throw and bind, while still maintaining a light, maneuverable, and really fast feel in play.
Recess is bringing the fun back to yo-yos, one killer new model at a time. Their latest design is here to prove that not all bi-metals have to be stiff, rigid, competition geared machines – Sometimes you just need a Vacation!
The Vacation is the second bi-metal design to come out of the Recess workshop, and it is a blast! This yo-yo has a beautiful design that fits comfortably in the hand and feels smooth as butter on the string.
The bi-metal rings are fitted seamlessly on the very outer rim to give you that extra rim weight right where it’s needed most. The Vacation plays solid and laid back without being too heavy on the string, exactly what you need to relax and unwind, yet still fast enough to pull off that speed combo you’ve been practicing on the side. It has an outer lip for thumb grinds, a smooth grind friendly finish, and a cup design that’s just begging you to learn more fingerspin tricks!
Step away from your normal routine, it’s time for you to take a Vacation!
