The brand new 7075 Aluminium Skyva shares the same shape and design as the 6061 counterpart - but because of the unique density of 7075 it weighs a solid 67 grams, up a few from the 6065 version.
Again - more powerful spin is was what Magic YoYo focused on. If the 6061 was the fun outgoing yoyo, this is its competition ready cousin!
Magic have also stepped it up experimenting with a beautiful acid wash finish. The engraving on the side 7075 Aluminum finishes its aesthetic touch for a tasteful variant of the metal Skyva series!
Here's Jeffrey's take on the metal Skyva:
"I have been working on this project for the past 6 months. There has been many customers that have asked me to produce an aluminum version of the Skyva. I wanted to take it a step further to produce something that would be a better performer in all aspects - both as a yoyo and in fingerspin performance.
The outside shape has been rather unchanged. Nearly the same profile as the plastic Skyva. The body itself has been machined from 6061 aluminum. We used a very very fine media blast technique that feels super slick and premium. You'll understand when you hold it for the first time - it feels awesome even when its not spinning. The aluminum body makes for a completely different weight distribution with much more stability and spin time.
One of the enemies of fingerspin style tricks is the friction between your finger and the hub. Admittedly, both polycarbonate and aluminum aren't bad when it comes to friction eduction, but we wanted to take it to the next level. Anyone who has felt delrin before knows how buttery smooth it feels. Having owned many delrin throws in the past - I knew this super slick material was the way to go for the fingerspin cup area."
