Candy Dice - Yoshihiro Abe signature counterweight.
Candy Dice are 5A (freehand) counterweights designed by 2001 World Champion and 5A pioneer Shingo Terada. Until the introduction of Candy Dice, there were too few counterweight options, and Shingo decided to do something about it. Candy Dice unique grooved design allow you to switch between 5A to 1A without even taking the string off the yo-yo. And they offer several different shapes and size options to suit your 5A needs!
Candy Dice Pro Ninja are the signature model of Yoshihiro Abe, the 5A champion of the Asia-Pacific Yo-Yo Contest! The Candy Dice Pro Ninja has a hole running through it, allowing you to run the string through for a more secure fit. If you’re getting into high-energy counterweight tricks, you don’t have to worry about the dice flying off the string.
Note:To achieve the particular play feel that we were looking for, Candy Dice is made up of three parts that are attached with glue. After many rounds of prototypes and testing, we found that this 3-part design achieved a much better play feel than if we were to make it as a single piece. This, however, comes with the slight downside that the sections may come apart.
If one of the parts comes off, you can reattach it with a little bit of glue and it should be as good as new!
