C3yoyodesign – Gamma Crash
POM and Stainless come together to create a marriage of softness with a metal ring.
C3 liked this soft POM body they put a ring on it! This is C3’s first composite yo-yo, and they’ve brought all their expertise to the table to ensure it retains the smooth playfeel of their current lineup.
Slightly larger than the body is wide, the addition of the steel ring adds a power-up that spins Gamma Crash with incredible power. The softness of POM with the power of metal gives you the control and speed of top-end bimetal yo-yos, with the soft catch of light plastic yo-yos.
Although they aren’t using metal for the body, they machined the POM (also known as engineering plastic) just the same, so it still has the high-end feel of a machined yo-yo. We’d really like you to taste the balance of weight and ease of use the Gamma Crash offers. C3 has sought to overcome the barriers of mixing new materials and techniques to bring you the best yo-yos, and the best of both worlds.
Contrail is C3’s latest and greatest off string yo-yo, the second signature model for 4A world champion, Rei Iwakura.
There are many genres of off string play, and this yo-yo was designed as the perfect all-arounder, for beginners all the way to expert players. As Rei’s second signature model, it’s important to point out that the Contrail’s concept varies wildly from the dead-stable spin of the Flawless.
The body shape is based on a combination of the Flawless and the Aura, and machined from the same POM plastic material. It has the same catch zone as the Neo Solar, with a similarly rounded low-edge as the Orbit and Toss, making it easier to maintain balance during play through endless regenerations, while the body is so well balanced that even a light throw can be highly playable. C3 has considered everything an off string player could want, and given it to us. The Contrail is easy to throw and easy to hit tricks with.
For casual play or competitive play, performances, training, and trick creation, you can’t go wrong with this one. The Contrail is our new favorite recommendation.
Please note that the axle thickness has been stepped up for added toughness and durability.
The Master Galaxy, now five years old, has been recast in 7075 Aluminum!
As the name implies, the Remaster Galaxy is the updated version of C3’s first popular wide-bodied full metal yo-yo, the Master Galaxy. The size and shape are mostly untouched, but thanks to the change of materials, the new body is a full 3 grams lighter. Coupled with the dense feeling of 7075 Aluminum and the weight distribution focusing on power and stability, the Remaster is even more stable during play than its predecessor.
When we call it a “wide body,” we aren’t joking; the Remaster is so wide it spills out of adult hands. But it’s not just for looks; the wide design increases your string hits so that you can pull of insane speedy combos and influent-style tricks without even looking.
The “Petal Dance” colorway is Simpson Wong’s design, the “Pegasus” design is the signature colorway for C3’s Chinese sponsored member, Ma Yi, and has their logo engraved on the side face.
