Round Spinning Objects - Throwback design reimagined in Titanium!
From RSO: More than two years ago, the Mecha-Bapezilla gave a kickstart to the RSO brand (again, I cannot thank Sonny enough). Since then, RSO has made various iterations of the original Eetsit / Bapezilla design. The End Titanium marks the third refinement of the End CAD and the final time I will be working on the Eetsit / Bapezilla CAD. For the last curtain call, there are three aspects of the End Titanium design which make it the ultimate tribute to the OG Eetsit / Bapezilla in addition to staying true to the OG End design - the catch zone, rim and Anti-Yo nipple.
Play-feel wise, when the yo-yo is in the air, the difference between the End Titanium and Mecha-Bapezilla is subtle at most. The End Titanium is only 1.5g lighter than the Mecha-Bapezilla. I postulate that the weight difference is less apparent because both are generally “heavy” playing yo-yos.
The End Titanium more closely resembles the OG Eetsit / Bapezilla than the Mecha-Bapezilla. You would feel a stark contrast between the End Titanium and the Mecha-Bapezilla when you hold them in your hands due to their different rims and catch zones. Truth to be told, the End Titanium is a more challenging yo-yo to play than the Mecha-Bapezilla due to its higher walls, making the catch zone more prone to string contact and the yo-yo more susceptible to tilt.
The End Titanium was derived from the End Part II: Finale CAD. As much as I tried to preserve the weight distribution of the aluminium Ends, the End Titanium plays somewhat differently. The End Titanium feels "denser" and heavier on the string than its aluminium counterparts despite being the same weight. After working on various titanium iterations of aluminium yo-yos, I realised that one could never precisely replicate the play-feel of an aluminium yo-yo with titanium. So… hold on to your Preludes and Finales!
The End Titanium will transport you back to 2006, when you threw your first Eetsit!
