The Basilisk Light is exactly what you think it is – A slightly lighter version of the legendary heavyweight – The Basilisk. The decreased weight helps improve speed and maneuverability in the air.
The Basilisk was made specifically with World Champion Kentaro Kimura’s play style in mind, the focus was on superb handling for freestyle dominance – making it sharp and maneuverable by design. It is truly a fantastic yo-yo, but it is definitely on the heavy side.
Turning Point created the Basilisk Light for those of you who are looking for the peerless performance and maneuverability of larger yo-yo without the heaviness at the end of the string. The new design is 2 grams lighter while maintaining the same amazing shape of the Basilisk. The reduced weight makes the Basilisk Light a faster performer and also reduces fatigue during play. It has a lighter, more natural, feel and is almost effortless to maneuver through freestyles.
So if you are looking for full-size performance but can do without the excessive weight then you will love the Turning Point Basilisk Light!
