pdx-yo - Designed around the golden ratio
PDX-YO has something new and it is stunning example of design aesthetics. Meet the Phidias.
Continuing the visual language developed on The Batsquatch, The Phidias features deeply engraved rings describing a fibonacci sequence on its flat cup. The Phidias is designed around the golden ratio (or golden mean). PDX-YO strived to influence all of The Phidias’ dimensions with golden ratios and fibonacci numbers. Its profile in particular is a golden ratio of width and diameter. We gave it one throw in Seattle and it all made sense! This is a masterpiece.
This slimline design makes it a true everyday carry pocket friendly yoyo! And being overall narrow it is also the perfect yoyo to practice perfecting control as landing the yoyo takes practice and precision (but this is built to be completely unresponsive for advanced play).
All Phidias have been tested as A grade for performance, however due to challenges during the process on the 7075 Aluminum certain colorways have cosmetic streaking ano flaws present on the rims. These colorways are offered at a discounted $55.
All products ship in a custom engraved presentation tin with pdxyo sticker and custom pink Zipline string.
