YoYo Empire - Boreas II (PC)
Another flavor of YoYo Empire's full POM Boreas II, this version is made of polycarbonate.
YoYo Empire's POM body lineup are all full POM-bodied throws with a metal hub forming the fingerspin spot over the axle, each with a different profile and body shape, letting you taste how those design decisions affect how the yo-yo plays, when all else remains the same. This a variation on one of those models to show another dimension that affects playfeel: material.
The Boreas II has a smooth S-shaped inverse round profile, giving it a complex but enjoyable playfeel that combines power and control in a compact package. With the same weight and shape, the qualities of the body material shine through, giving this PC version a lighter playfeel that's speedy and snappy. If you are a fan of plastic throws for this reason, we recommend this version of the Boreas II. It also has a really nice texture that feels like a blast finish on an aluminum throw.
The Boreas II comes in alternate flavors that use different body materials, including POM plastic, polycarbonate, and a metal rim variation. This is the polycarbonate plastic version. For a powered-up version of this yo-yo, check out the Boreas II Pro, equipped with a stainless steel rim.
