RecRev OKTAVE – Update

Published by:

From the RecRev Facebook

Multi-Axis Interface
If you like horizontal tricks or tricks involving axis changes,
this yoyo is for you.
Coming soon, very soon.
These will be released at 44Clash in Tokyo, Japan!

Not entirely sure what Multi-Axis Interface but it sounds cool. I would love to know more.

Just got the “more”

Most people will tell you that the new trend of “recessed” rim weighted is great for spins and feels very solid. they will also tell you that the lower wall is great for string tricks (because of less friction). now both of these together is pretty decent for horizontal tricks. furthermore, i have developed a way to distribute weight in the mid section of the yoyo (on the gap side, this would be the flat between the gap “bump” and the arc of the yoyo and on the outside, this would be the flat closest to the area where the laser art is traditionally placed and where axle tower would normally be) that helps the yoyo “flatten out” when thrown horizontally, providing less friction during the normally friction-heavy horizontal tricks and making it easier to keep the yoyo horizontal. the same implement helps the yoyo to change axis when you use your string to do so (like an axis change eli-hop).

Product Review – RecRev No.9

Published by:

Horton Hears a No.9


Alex Kim is really carving out a nice niche for himself. The third base-priced yo-yo from RecRev is the No.9, a unique looking throw with full tilt design specs. Alex caught up with me at the Bay Area Classics and popped an unlabeled plastic container into my hands. It had “No.9” scrawled on top. I had seem pictures of the No.9 on theglasslab.com and was really intrigued by the design. The RecRev No.9 comes in a rainbow of colors, and much like the “i”, each color has a different pattern. Alex must know I like bright yo-yos, because he handed me the brightest color he carried. Neon pink.

RecRev’s SCLB

Published by:

Caught this at the Glass Lab Blog.
They should be available at Nationals from Alex directly, or at YYN after that.
Hit up the Glass Lab Blog for the full story and a lot more awesome pictures.

One thing I want to highlight…

SCLB weighs in at around 67 grams

Perfect Weight in my eyes!  I totally dig the color way.
