Το SUNRiSE είναι αποτέλεσμα συνεργασίας του 5 φορές πρωταθλητή Ευρώπης Dave Geigle, του Bill de Boisblanc, ενός μύθου του yoyoing (παίζει και συμμετέχει σε διαγωνισμούς από τις αρχές του 1950, 3 φορές πρωταθλητής κόσμου, μέλος της YoYoJam κ.α.) και της γνωστής YoYoFactory.

Για τα νέα looping tricks αλλά και για τα old school yo-yo tricks, το SUNRiSE έχει τόσο καλό έλεγχο που μπορεί κάθε αρχάριος να τα πετύχει πιο γρήγορα. Το προτείνουμε.

Pro tip: To κορδόνι για looping tricks είναι καλύτερα να το έχεις πιο κοντό από ότι σε άλλα play styles. Η θηλειά θα πρέπει να είναι περίπου στο ύψος που ξεκινά η τσέπη του πανελονιού σου.

iYoYo SUNRiSE Looping YoYo (Dave Geigle x Bill de Boisblanc x YYF)

With iYoYo, I have created almost everything yoyo-related you can think of – From beginner plastic yo-yos to custom bearings, strings, pads, holders, bags… Even high-end bi-tanium yo-yos. Really almost everything.

But one thing bugged me: I did not have a 2A yo-yo in my lineup. As a passionate 2A player, this just felt wrong, all the time. And it’s not that we didn’t try. I had a few different samples machined, even came up with a way to machine starbursts, since investing ~15,000 USD in a mold and the first run of yo-yos would not be feasible as a smaller brand.

None of the samples played the way I wanted it.

Sometimes life can consist of funny coincidences though… When I sat at breakfast during Worlds 2018 with YoYoFactory-employee Ben McPhee, I got an e-mail from my long-time YoYoJam friend, mentor, and fellow Sunset-Signature-Partner Bill de Boisblanc. He had hand-machined a few spacers that would fit the YoYoJam Sunset sized bearings into a Loop720 and suggested I try to make them. Ben thought the idea was worth picking up.

Fast forward a year later, a few prototypes later I can proudly present to you: The SUNRiSE!

SUNRiSE is based on the YoYoFactory Loop 720’s shape with custom YYJ-sized bearing and spacers. The play is super controllable and slightly bouncy at the end of the string. It plays much faster than you’d expect and has a excellent spin, long enough for any combo I can think of.

I’m more than happy I can finally check “Make a great 2A YoYo” off my wishlist for iYoYo and I can’t wait to hear what the players have to say about the SUNRiSE!
