After the Steamroller, our new throw, the Stampede, is now ready!
Weight (g) 65.50
Width (mm) 51.00
Diameter (mm) 56.00
Gap Width (mm) 4.50
Bearing Size (Inside x Outside x Width) 6 x 13 x 5
The Stampede comes with Neon Green Cross Pads, which provide unresponsive play and tight binds. It also accepts flowable silicone.
After lots of testing, we’ve found that the Stampede is better with a flat bearing than a concave bearing. Contrary to the Steamroller, it is thus delivered with a flat bearing only. Still comes with a Graou String !
The Stampede is a large full size throw with long spin time, amazing stability, while being light and fast, with a nice presence on string.
4 gorgeous colors, black, silver, red and purple, individually numbered. Orange is our team Edition.
The Stampede will be available only in your favorite store.If you have any question, I’d be happy to answer them!
I’ve been throwing this Steamroller for a couple weeks now.. and I think it’s about time to write up a little review. This is the yoyo that started all this new ‘wide yoyo’ business... soooo, is wider better? Or is this a case of experimental design gone wrong? Keep reading to find out!!
First off, let’s cover the appearance of the Steamroller. If you haven’t seen one, or just don’t really know all of it’s specs, I suggest you go check it out.. You’ll notice that this yo is very different from anything you’ve ever seen or thrown before. At nearly 48mm wide, it has almost the same width as it’s diameter.. quite interesting. It also has some interesting edges/lines to it. The outer rim comes to a ‘relatively’ sharp edge that could easily double as a cookie cutter!
diam- 49.15 mm
width- 47.8 mm

I was sent 3 different colors of Graou string and told that they may play slightly differently. Having been told that, I still found that they played almost exactly the same. For the purposes of this review I will simply be referring to all 3 of them when I say ‘Graou string.’
For the purposes of this review, I’ve decided to list and compare some of the string formats that I use/have used in the past. Since everybody's string preference is slightly different, I decided that a comparison review would be most beneficial (as opposed to me just rambling on about how I think Graou strings are super awesome...). Here is a list of the strings that will be included in this review: yyn highlights, chaos 422, g-string BNC, g-string SSE2, and of course Graou String. I’m hoping that most of you have used one or more of the strings included in this comparison/review. That way each of you should be able to get a good idea of how the Graou string plays.
It's my turn to review and give my feeling on this French jewel.
After more than 15hour of play non stop, i'll explain you what i feel when i play this yoyo.
I agree Xela (even if i told that i won't like the raw because i was bored of them) that this one is the best raw i ever see... it's shining so much, it looks like someone made a mirror polish on it...
