The following video is the premier of my long awaited collaboratively designed signature yo-yo, the TopYo Meta, aka ///TOPYO//META\\LYC\\\. It has been a few months since the idea came and now it is finally here. But first why call it Meta? Check out the meaning below.
“Most Effective Tactic Available,” that is what the name means from today’s Urban Dictionary. The approach to the design is not far from the definition. I wanted the yoyo to be able to do speed, tech, finger spin and just about anything I throw at it. The result definitely will not disappoint.
Besides function, TopYo and I discussed the quality of the yo-yo. We wanted the it to be beautiful, like a piece of art. The surface has to be smooth. We wanted it to be glossy yet will not stick to your skin when playing. The Meta has a sand blasted feel, but has a finish similar to Yo-yo’s two to three times the price.
Speaking of price, we wanted to make sure that the yo-yo will provide value and hours and hours of fun and use. That means, lots of enjoyment without breaking the bank. The price as of release will be around $40.
The ///TOPYO//META\\LYC\\\ comes in 6 color ways and are named as follows:
- Aqua Blue
- Ocean Blue
- Mint Ice Cream
- Machine Gun
All the colors are displayed in this article for you to see. You will also be able to see all these up close in the video below.
Here are the Specs of the ///TOPYO//META\\LYC\\\:
- Weight: 66 g
- Diameter: 57mm
- Width: 46.5mm
- Bearing: C Size Bearing
The TopYo Meta is a solid design. It has a powerful feel while at play. This is due to the emphasis on the rim weight. That means, it will spin to your heart’s desire. To balance out the rim weight, a great deal of attention was dedicated to the shape and weight in the middle as well. In fact, thorough testing and tweaks were made from the conceptual design all the way to the various prototypes (Mark I, II and III).
The resulting production model, with all the hours and collaborative work with TopYo was definitely worth the wait. So without further a do, here is the TopYo x LorenzYoCubing (LYC) designed yo-yo the Meta. Please like, share, comment and subscribe.!
