Round Spinning Objects - RSO x Tom Kuhn Collaboration!
From RSO: When I started on my yo-yo journey back in 1999, the Silver Bullet 2 (SB-2) was one of the first yo-yos to kickstart my collection. This nostalgic throw conjures memories of my 12 year old self standing in front of a yo-yo display at the Takashimaya department store while begging my parents to buy it for me. Fast forward more than two decades; my passion for throwing has grown into Round Spinning Objects (RSO) and the Titanium Silver Bullet!
The design concept of the titanium SB-Ti was simple: to make a slimline yo-yo that is primarily suited for unresponsive play, but can play semi-responsive or responsive. The primary playing style of the SB-Ti is modern unresponsive play, but it is fully equipped for modern responsive and fixed-axle play as well. The bearing seat was designed to allowed bearings of different thicknesses to fit. It is setup unresponsive out of the box, and included in the package you'll find a responsive slim bearing, 2 custom machined bearing blanks, and shorter axles to go with each.
And just like the SB-2, the SB-Ti comes with two black rubber weight rings which fit snugly in the yo-yo. Each ring weighs 1.8g, allowing the SB-Ti to go up to 64.6g with a regular C bearing. These rubber weight rings are made with such high manufacturing precision that they introduce almost no vibe to the SB-Ti when installed.
The attention to detail in this project is everything we have come to expect form RSO releases. Every aspect, from the box art to the included extra, to the original Silver Bullet font used in the engraving is just perfect. This collaboration breathes new life into a legendary piece of yo-yo history!
