Round Spinning Objects - MARTIAN INVASION!
Round Spinning Objects about the MARTIAN:
It has been slightly over 4 years since RSO’s first yo-yo, and manufacturing costs have increased tremendously. Although it no longer makes financial sense to continue operating RSO, my passion for yo-yo design has been crucial in keeping the company going. In addition, I still enjoy brainstorming the theme and artwork behind each model, particularly for models like Sushi and now The Martian!
Martian has been a long time in the making. The prototypes were completed in January 2022, and the production batch shipped to me in June 2022. Unfortunately, the release was delayed indefinitely due to a critical manufacturing defect in the Side Effects (SE) hole. The SE could not fit, and the yo-yos had to be redone. I am glad to finally show you my creation six long months later. This is a special yo-yo. It is difficult to accurately describe the playfeel of Martian - it is neither floaty nor solid playing, but it has plenty of… soul. If you’ve thrown a Canvas, which the Martian is heavily based on, you’ll know how it feels.
The Martian plays slightly heavier with more center weight compared to the Canvas, with a very peculiar bounce when it hits the string. Every now and then, an RSO yo-yo with a seemingly simple design blows me away, and the Martian is one of them. It is up there with derti, TiRAMiSU and Sushi as my favorite RSO releases. It must be emphasized that the yo-yo is not wholly vibe-free. I attribute this to the relatively large, full-sized diameter of the yo-yo, which increases the risk of warping during the machining process.
The yo-yo is smooth on the string and outer rims but has a slight unnoticeable vibe if you place two fingers in the catch zone near the response area. I applied the same quality control standard as Gravity - so you would be happy with Martian if you were satisfied with your Gravity.
