C3yoyodesign - Simpson Wong Wai Sheuk Signature YoYo!
We are excited to announce the official release of the Simpson Wong Wai Sheuk signature yoyo "Scintillator"!
Simpson is a C3 media producer, holder of the long sleeper world yoyo record, and this is his first signature yoyo after 25 years in the yoyo community. The Scintillator combines several of his favorite C3 models with innovative design elements, resulting in a high-performance, budget-friendly, and competition-ready monometal yoyo that also incorporates trendy features such as Fingerspin DNA tricks.
At 49mm wide, the Scintillator is narrower than Simpson's previous favorites, the Master Galaxy and Galaxy Diver series, despite incorporating their wide design elements. The exaggerated H-shape of the Scintillator increases its maneuverability and accuracy, while its diameter of 56.21mm and lightweight center allow for longer spin times and precise control.
One of the Scintillator's standout features is its Fingerspin hubs, which are designed to allow for easy finger placement and adjustment of angles, making Fingerspin tricks more accessible and versatile. Additionally, the Scintillator's H-shape design lends itself well to a variety of string tricks, providing increased accuracy and stability.
Despite its many advanced features, the Scintillator also excels in everyday use and social media "DNA" tricks. Its floaty feel and solid control provide a balanced yoyo experience that's suitable for a wide range of players. One last point that cannot be overlooked is the origin of the name.
One of the biggest challenges for all new yoyo is the naming process. Simpson has made multiple wordplays in Scintillator.
First, Scintillator can be meaning as "閃爍體." Simpson Wong Wai Sheuk's original name is 黃偉鑠 (Wong Wai Sheuk), and both English transliterations start with the letter 'S.' The character "鑠" in Wong Wai Sheuk's name means bright and shining in Chinese, and 鑠 and 爍 share the same meaning in Chinese, so Scintillator and 鑠 (Sheuk) have a common meaning.
In addition, Simpson's Japanese name is "シンプソン," and Scintillator's Japanese name is "シンチレータ," both starting with the Katakana "シン." As Simpson's signature yoyo, this creative idea is truly fascinating!
