Round Spinning Objects - Aluminum D-bearing version of the Bowl Mini!
From RSO: The goal for the Bowl Mini was to take the Titanium Bowl and shrink it down to a compact undersized throw. This newest iteration is machined form aluminum and features a D bearing for even better and more unique performance!
Due to its smaller diameter, a D bearing has a greater number of revolutions per minute (RPM) when spinning compared to a C bearing, hence giving the yo-yo a more powerful spin. However, the down side is that the yo-yo spins for a shorter period. These characteristics are more pronounced with an A bearing, which is has an even smaller diameter. The D bearing sits comfortably between the A and C bearings in terms of these characteristics.
You can feel an apparent difference when comparing both the C bearing and D bearing versions of the steel Bowl Mini. The D bearing version plays more like a younger child, with more extraordinary bursts of energy and shorter attention span. The C bearing version plays like an older child who can sit in front of a television for days. Like all parents, you would love both children.
I wanted to do something special with the 6061 aluminum version of the Bowl Mini, and applied a much thicker layer of blast. The heavy blast gives the yo-yo a more premium feel and brings out the colors beautifully. The yo-yos look gorgeous in person, following the Pantone colors of the Rubik’s cube.
Due to the aggressive blast, a significant portion of the 6061 aluminum Bowl Mini run has tiny spots in the cup, which are only apparent under bright light. I am calling these the Crayon Edition - if you give a young child a crayon to draw on a piece of paper, you’ll probably get the same effect! The Crayon Editions are different from B grades, which have too extensive crayon spots and will not be sold.
