“Wish” is the fifth signature model of Zach Gormley, CLYW team member and 2015 World Yo-Yo Contest 1A Division champion. After the popular “Arctic Circle,” “Arctic Circle 2,” “Borealis” and “Big Dipper,” his new signature model is now a bimetal.
At the JAPAN YO-YO CUP -International Online- 2020-, he used “Wish” and showed that his skills are still alive and well.
Compared to past signature models, the stainless-steel rim provides increased spinning power and stability for improved performance. At the same time, despite being a bi-metal yo-yo, the mid-ship weighted structure makes the yoyo more controllable, similar to a mono-metal yo-yo. The specs are relatively standard, and the yo-yo is easy to move, making it suitable for players like Zach, who performs a wide variety of tricks.
Personally, I believe that the appeal of “Wish” is not only in its specs and performance. This yo-yo has a certain softness, in the feeling at the moment of throw-out and rewind (partly due to the CLYW pads), the feeling when the yo-yo turns back and forth, that which is of a comfort and depth that can be felt in every aspect of play. I think that the “Wish” has achieved both such a feeling along with the competitive capability of bimetal yo-yos. We hope you will experience the appeal of “Wish,” which is different from other high-end models.
