MK1 YoYos - Mk1 yo-yos first release!
Introducing the Diffraction 2 by Mk1 Yo-Yos! A company created by YoYoExpert Forum member MarkD!
The original Diffraction design was inspired by conversations online with Jordan Blofeld (of Smashing and OP YOYOs). Taking inspiration from the Smashing Interlagos yo-yo, Mark from Mk1 got some interesting ideas about fingerspin hubs. After a couple failed attempts he landed on something unique; concentric stepped circles to act as a fingerspin guide. The shape of these circles is reminiscent of laser diffraction patterns, something Mark had seen a lot as he worked in a laser-lab during his college years. This inspired the name of the yo-yo as well.
Mark took his design to the YoYoExpert Forums for advice and refined it into the Diffraction 1 which was produced in limited numbers and sold to friends and family. Later in 2019, Mark put together a plan to tweak the design just a bit (the Diffraction 2) and ordered a 2nd run with some different colors, including the green that couldn't look better if it tried! A good friend drew up a new logo and the Diffraction 2 became a reality!
Each Diffraction 2 comes with a custom handmade yo-yo pouch crocheted personally by Mark to give it an extra special touch!
