C3yoyodesign - Flawless
This wide-bodied off string yo-yo is the new signature model of Rei Iwakura, the champion who needs no introduction.
Rei's first signature model as a sponsored member of the C3 team was designed to set the new standard for off string yo-yos. Before joining the C3 team, Rei did a lot of field research, eventually choosing the <a href="http://www.yoyostorerewind.com/en/neo-solar.html">Neo Solar</a> as the base design for his new model. In order to set the new standard, he took a close look at the size and weight distribution of the Neo Solar. The result is a full 5mm wider and 20 grams heavier than the Neo Solar, giving the Flawless a completely different feel. At a glance, the weight exceeds 100 grams, giving Flawless the most amazing stability that is absolutely crucial for off string players.
Thanks to these modifications, the yo-yo's texture can be felt when doing mounts and passes. The Flawless flies straight and true, making repeater and combo tricks come more naturally and easily. Orbital tricks especially benefit from this design, and as you can imagine (and see in the official video), Flawless is perfectly suited for Rei's signature style of playing with two off string tricks (AKA Soloham). True to its name, Flawless becomes an extension of yourself, letting the yo-yo become the conduit through which you express your off string creativity!
A word from Rei:
In 2014 at the World Yo-Yo Contest, I achieved my first no-miss contest performance. But even so, I strongly felt that I wasn't expressing my own creativity through my performance, and I sought to create a more personal routine that would show the world what I was capable of. This yo-yo, Flawless, is what allowed me to accomplish that goal.
The biggest strength of the Flawless is its stability, which makes orbits and recaptures especially easy; but the severe level of control turns the yo-yo into a real extension of yourself. Also thanks to the heavy body, Flawless has an incredible amount of spin and a low edge, meaning you will be throwing long combos like never before.
The playing field has widened greatly, especially for Soloham tricks in particular. I've been able to hit tricks that used to be just an impossible dream thanks to this yo-yo, which fills me with the most amazing feeling of surprise and joy.
Of course, Flawless was designed with difficult regeneration tricks in mind as well. Despite the heavy body, you'll be amazed at how comfortably you can control the Flawless. We aimed for a very fine line of performance and control, and we think we nailed it perfectly.
Of course, as an off string yo-yo, Flawless is designed to be extremely durable, providing you with countless hours of intense practice.
If you've been thinking about how you can step up your game, improve your off string play, or take your performance to the next level, Flawless is the yo-yo that will take you there. Just pick it up and give it a try, I'm pretty sure you won't want to put it back down.
For myself, I've created the Flawless to be my secret weapon for world domination, and to push myself beyond my old limits. For you, I wish to see the Flawless help you nail a perfect freestyle as well. I hope you're as excited as I am for what's coming next!
*The flawless is a yoyo design for professional player on stage. Heavy weight with extreme design. Open and twist the yoyo may change the quality.
