Unparalleled - Eric Trenton Signature Yo-Yo!
From UNPRLD: Weighing in at 66.5 grams, this yoyo has a light touch, allowing for movement, but also has significant rim weight, to allow for extreme stability and spin time. Modeled for Eric Tranton's needs, this yoyo has multiple cuts on the profile, allowing for very good control from all angles. Weight rings are fitted on the inside, to allow for more durability upon impact. in addition, an IRG cut is made to allow for more concentrated rim weight on the edge, and to allow for IRG.
The cup is a "back to the future" type, with the outer cup area designed to match the profile, but the nipple is modeled similarly to the early yoyojam shape. This yoyo will not only cater to 1a, but also to 3a and 5a, as the weight distribution makes the yoyo play solid enough for 3a, and nimble enough for 5a.
This yoyo was a huge pain to make. Eric has very picky yoyo tastes that have never been satisfied before. His hands are huge, making any yoyo seem small.
To design we broke down the yoyo into "zones," as shown in the cuts, in order to fine tune every gram of weight on the yoyo for distribution. We ended up overshooting the weight distribution by adding a ring that was too heavy, causing it vibe. Finally, we decided to approach it with an old school style, by adding a lip on the ring itself. By doing so, we were able to concentrate the weight on the very edge of the rim, adding density, but removing weight overall, creating mobility. The result is the ignition as you know it today - full of cuts and an absolute powerhouse.
