Hey guys!!  So, as you know my engineering background lends me to making awesome yoyos whether they're hand made or CNC'd, but it also lends to being terrible when it comes to hyping ANYTHING. 
read: http://www.yoyonation.com/talk/index.php/topic,93315.0.html
That being said, I've got alotta good stuff but I'd find it likely that not many know/care about it Wink

I'll start with the biggest news of all-  I won 1st in both the WYYC mod contest & iron mod contest!!!  Here's what I made to do it-

That's a front Formula bicycle hub that I chopped & then machined into a yoyo.  Yea you read that right, a bike hub!!  It weighs 100.7 grams, is 71.48 mm dia, 46.58 mm width & totally epic.  I'll be selling these at some point!



Now, onto what all's come out since the start of the year.  First up's the Volume:


It's a hand made Delrin that's in the 53mm catagory, and it rocks.  Here's the run down of specs:
53.3 mm Dia
43.1 mm Width
67 G
4.02 mm Gap
Get yours today here at Yoyoexpert!!!

After playing a Volume for a week, and falling completely inlove w/ the shape, I had to make one in acrylic.  Here's the result-  The Accent


It's identical to the Volume in specs, just 1 gram lighter.  You'll love it!

This came out in March:  It's the GK, and it's completely hand made from bar stock Teflon!  Here's what you need to know about Teflon:
"Teflon's coefficient of friction is an extremely low .07! (For comparison, Delrin is .25, Anodized Aluminum is .22) This means that grinds are exceptional.

Furthermore, Teflon is a very dense plastic. Its density is .079 lb/in^3, which is much heavier than Delrin and Acrylic (.049 & .042, respectively). It even out-weighs Magnesium, and is close to that of Aluminum (.063 & .098, respectively)."

It's essentially the best grinding yoyo, & most metal-esque full plastic you can buy. 



49.3 mm Dia
39.44 mm Width
68.5 G
4.02 mm gap

Next we've got the Omnicron X.  It's a CNC'd aluminum version of the acrylic Omnicron.  This thing is primo. If you liked the Bass Line, you'll love this. 
-Gobs more rim weight
-Spiked hub
-Killer IRG for grinds
-Partly designed by CJ, the first sig edition 3yo3


When I did the Bass Line's, they were all pyramatte'd and ano'd in 1 of 5 colors: black, blue, gold, clear (silver), & red. Not this time. We've got some nickel plated, powder coated, anodized in black & silver, some given the VsNYYC "The Works" treatment, Jason Wong Loaded ano... and more coming!  Rest assured, it's just as smooth as the Bass Line. These will be dropping soon @ the YYE Store!!

Diameter: 52.00 mm
Width: 42.85 mm
Weight: 67.1 grams
Bearing: C
Response: RTV/Flow will accept thick .555 Gen-Yo hatpads, and other similar sized pads.

And my latest new yo, is the production version of my 3rd place 2010 WYYC Mod Contest yoyo, the Hour Glass.  In 2010 it seemed the "trend" was yoyos that had an hour glass shape.  Well, Tip told me it'd be sweet to make one out of acylic, but take it a step further and make it WORK!  With his outlandish ideas and my machining talent, it happened.  They're filled with real sand that travels between the halves through the hollow axle.




Though on the heavy side due to the high brass content, sand, and caps, it still plays GREAT. Smooth too, even with the sand!!! 
50.8 mm Dia
41.36 mm wide
77.1 g, with the sand
4.02 mm gap

And one last note, for those of you still reading-  I plan on releasing a Titanium yoyo after the Omnicron X.  It's going to be awesome. I'll spend a ton of time in the design process, to the point where I'll be able to pick up the yoyo 5 years from it being made and say "I wouldn't have done it differently".  Stay tuned!

Keep an eye here, I'll be updating this page as news happens!

Digging all the input guys- thanks a BUNCH!!

Here's what's happening-  I just graduated from USF with a bachelors in mechanical engineering.  Now it's time to really get some yoyos going!  Look for another wave of Omnicron X's, all bead blasted & in some really wicked colorways.  Maybe even gold plate? Wink

Titanium yoyo-  I'm going to do 6 more drawings, so there'll be 10 total.  Then we'll have an official poll, and figure  out what everyone likes best.  It's going to be HUGE!

Lastly- I've gotten some orders lately for all my handmade stuff lately.  Yes, EVERYTHING is still handmade start to finish, NO CNC'ing at all (with the exception of the Omnicron X of course.)  Here's what's brewing on my manual lathe!

First thing to drop will be these acrylic Steamrollers.  The X^3YO3 official collaboration



Let there be light!





That's a Hammerhead, with a Duncan light up FHZ board inside. 

Here's my stock-pile of un-machined yoyo stock!  From the top: 2.125" Acrylic for Cosmo/Ceephax/Acryllion/Accent. 2.125" Delrin for Volume/Capella. Bottom left: 2.25" acrylic for CMA & Hammerhead. Bottom Middle: 2.00" teflon for Grind King & Huh Wink Bottom right: 2" acrylic for acrylic steams & Huh  Question marks indicate a definite potential of new models.  All this I'll eventually turn by hand into another awesome 3YO3 creation!



And here's whats come in for colored acrylic yoyos!

Camo!



a slew of color!



And these next 2 shots of some in the laminating clamp





Saving the best for last...



IT GLOWS!!!!!!



Check back soon!

How come the Accent isn't available in colored?

The same old fears.
