Turning Point - Takayasu Tanaka Signature Yo-Yo!
The Diamond Virgin is a new bi-metal release form Turning Point and the signature model of Takayasu Tanaka!
Takayasu Tanaka was the Japan National 1A champion for two consecutive years in 2005 & 2006 and the name Diamond Virgin comes from the Janne Da Arc song that Takayasu used in his 2006 winning freestyle. A member of team YoyoJam at the time, he used the Mini Mo-Tu in competition and has always been a fan of undersized yo-yos. Turning Point created the Diamond Virgin as an updated version of the Mini Mo-Tu.
When Dale and Mo, aka YoYoDoc, designed the Mini Motu the goal was to show players that a smaller size yo-yo can play big and powerful. This new model was created to follow in it's footsteps with modern performance and weight distribution. They made the Diamond Virgin a compact bi-metal design with extra broad steel rings that provide ample power and stability. It has a fun fast feel in play that you expect from an undersized model, yet handles long complex tricks and combos like a much larger throw.
