YoYoFactory x Turning Point - Ex-Machina
This is the first YYF x TP collaboration model to feature a bimetal design.
Over the years, YoYoFactory and Turning Point have collaborated to churn out a great selection of collaboration models. Ex-Machina is the first of their collaboration series to have a bimetal design.
The body is made from 7075 aluminum, with a stainless steel outer rim. The diameter is slightly on the large size, hitting a size balance that gives an amazing, powerful spin. Yet, when you throw it, that power feels almost casual, letting you control Ex-Machina with ease, regardless of how intense your practice session is. The multi-stepped profile is designed to make rejection-style tricks easy. The laser-etchings on the side of the yo-yo and the inner rims are captivating and curious; Ex-Machina has the looks to match its performance.
The design and specs were handled mostly by Turning Point, and YoYoFactory provided the means for production and testing for the highest quality. This collaboration between Japan and America has brought us one of the best yo-yos we've thrown.
*The black Pulsar Collection colorway has no rim etching.
We are proud to announce our first bi-metal Turning Point x YoYoFactory collaboration yoyo, the Ex-Machina! With strong influence from the Cyborg 2.0 and many other prominent Turning Point models, Ex-Machina is a little bit more angular and is made of strong 7075 aluminum coupled with stainless steel weight rings. The name? Well, Cyborg was a fusion between man and machine. With this design, man has been replaced with more machine. ‘Deus ex machina’ refers to the Latin phrase ‘god from the machinery.’ Here is the machine. The play? God like.
