Collaborating on a yoyo with the person who taught me to yoyo is the most absurd thing I think I’ll do during my time making yoyos. Not only because it’s the biggest yoyo store in the world, but because André Boulay is one of the most generous people you could wish to meet.
That’s where the name is from, but I bet you want to know how it plays! It’s only 62 grams, 56mm diameter, 44mm wide, made from 7068 aluminium and pure joy on a string. Drawing from the 2 most popular yoyos I’ve ever made, the Monocle and Float, it plays like something you only imagined in your dreams. The Absurdity comes in our standard magnetic box with all the papers to prove it’s real, some stickers, an Airetic string and an yoyorecreation NSK DS Platinum bearing. It’ll be sold exclusively on the YoYoExpert store.
I’ve wanted to make this yoyo for a long time. No thrills, all catch zone and pure performance. It doesn’t hold your hand or try to comfort you, it just wants to do tricks. It might sound heavy at 65 grams but the large 57mm diameter and accomodating 48mm width mean it plays fast. With all that weight packed into those chunky 7068 aluminium rims, it just performs and goes fast. I used it to compete at 3 contests last year and it never let me down.
Send me a message if you have any questions, compliments or complaints. I don’t even mind chatting yoyos so feel free if you just want to talk.
