Round Spinning Objects - Go big or go home.
From RSO: Making an oversized yo-yo has been a massive dream of mine, literally and figuratively. Sometimes the stars don’t seem to align… until now. I had intended to release a larger Bowl before a mini one last year but ran into dead-ends and roadblocks on the journey.
The BIG problem was sourcing 7068 aluminum bars that could be anodized with great color-pop and consistency. Material costs and freight are experiencing hyperinflation and prices for these commodities have increased since I started dreaming about “GOING BIG!”. Not to mention the massive size of the bars needed to make such a large diameter yoyo. BUT, fast forward to early 2021 and due to the limited yet sufficient availability of quality oversized 7068 aluminum bars combined with the immense popularity of the Bowl series, I decided that it’s time; time to revive the Bowl XL project so you can see why I’ve been obsessing over this BIG dream.
Make no mistake, the BOWL XL is a gigantic yo-yo. The goal of the BOWL XL was to pack the usual floaty play-feel of the Bowl series into a Godzilla-meets-Mothra-sized package. It is one of the most enormous yo-yos ever made, but it can move just as well as it's smaller counterparts. Weighing in at only 1g heavier than the original Bowl 7068, but 10mm bigger, the Bowl XL retains the comfortable organic shape of the Bowl series with a smooth flowy feel in play that won't break your wrist.
