Japan Technology - AIRE JAPAN EDITION
Extra low edge and increased weight make the Japan Edition a very special Aire!
The original Aire was based on the Kamui, the first machined off string yo-yo that made Japan Technology a sensation in the off string universe. This version of the Aire pushes those specs and true to its name, incorporates the "Hinomaru," red circle of the Japanese flag into the side motif.
The edge has been brought down to further to reduce sleep loss and make play smoother. Thanks to an additional 6 grams of body weight, the Aire is so stable that it keeps spinning true through even the wildest off string tricks. This weight gain was made using the POM plastic body material instead of metal weight rings, so not only is the weight distribution of this Aire unique, it also makes it a price-down version of one of JT's top-end models. The result is a very stable off string yo-yo that also feels very responsive to your commands.
From the Maker
The AIRE, named for its beautiful performance dancing through the air, is infused with the spirit of veteran player Bryan Figueroa. The JAPAN VERSION of the AIRE was reinvigorated through feedback from the young players fighting on the front lines in Japan, and is named in their honor.
Off string play demands different things for different tricks, such as the difficult high-risk regeneration tricks, or long combos demanding lots of spin and stability, or the latest popular (and extremely challenging) soloham style. The AIRE JAPAN EDITION balances all of these needs and handles just about anything you've seen on the modern stage, with room for tricks that have yet to be born.
