Round Spinning Objects - RSO x Crucial titanium collaboration!
From RSO: I have known Paul Yath for about 6 years. Before meeting Paul, I had already been collecting yo-yos from Born Crucial and they have significantly influenced RSO’s design philosophy from the start. I constantly try to incorporate unique elements in the packaging and accessories to give the yo-yos an identity that makes each model stand out from other releases.
Paul had been on a break from the yo-yo scene for a while but briefly returned with the Fresh Milk, Butter Milk, and most recently the Smoothie in 2017. There have been constant calls for his return. In June 2020, with help from a mutual friend, I managed to persuade Paul to work on something with RSO. Paul had initially wanted to work on a titanium model, and after a brief brainstorming session, we unanimously agreed on the name TiRAMiSU which reflects the titanium material of the yo-yo and fits in with the rest of the Crucial lineup which has food names.
Paul had prototyped a titanium yo-yo years ago featuring a catch zone with a series of steps and angles. This design aesthetic fit perfectly with the Tiramisu name, A dessert which consists of many layers. The only problem - Paul did not have the yo-yo with him anymore and had misplaced the CAD file for it. He dug out two pictures from his archives and we went back to the drawing board. Both Paul and I decided to start off with our own interpretations of the Tiramisu, and after several tweaks and adjustments we had something we were both happy with.
We wanted the TiRAMiSU to be a D bearing yo-yo from the beginning. The D bearing gives it a lot more power than you would get with a C bearing and feels just right with the Tiramisu weight distribution. It has impressive stability even at low RPMs and an overall versatile feel that will please any thrower. Packed in some beautifully designed boxes with a custom made Crucial denim pouch and all the goodies you expect from RSO.
