Hey guys! Sup today?
I’m gonna talk to you about this new lil' project. I’ll make it fast because there's not much to say about it.
Last year when the Steamroller came out, everybody liked it so much; well more or less ;) . Some played it and others didn't touched it because of the sharp shape...
In a cold night on a meeting with Xela, we decided to have fun with my proto and to build something sweeter. So I put my yo on the lathe, and just let my imagination run on that work.
Then came the version 1 of the sweetroller, not wery well done, vibrating, but it was playing differently and was fun. It soon became my favorite yoyo to play with. I don't really care about the yoyo that I play with; it can be big or small, with vibe or small wooble, as long as you have fun when you play it. So I just bang it everywhere.
When I arrived in Italia at my friends’ homes, Michele Ciacci and Vittorio Gorgon, they tried it and asked me:
" Hey bro, I need this yoyo! Really this is cool, will Xela produce them?"
Only thing that came to me was:
"Well no it's just a modded steamroller... Sorry guys…"
"Ok then, I need one, make me one!”
From here has grown that idea, how to make it better with less vibrations and something beautiful... Colors available were red, green, purple, blue, pink.
My choice was fast, very fast : I’m a field guy, I grew up in a place where cherry trees are everywhere, my friends are Italians… Red and green will be the colors of the yoyo. It reminds us of the cherry, and of the Italian flag.
To talk more about the yoyo, it has a little vibe, but it plays smooth and sweet, and in a totally different way of the Steamroller; that's why I won't compare them.
Diameter, width and weight are reduced. At first I wanted to add stacks, but it was quite impossible to find the piece I needed at low cost. So for now it's just the way it is.
For the box, the idea came from my living place, where we use to work with wood. What’s more beautiful than a wooden box directly cut into a full piece of wood?
Hope you’ll enjoy the mod!
