What we think:


It's one thing for a company to make a high-end, expensive yo-yo. It's quite another for a company to make the quality and playability of a high-end yo-yo in a more economical price bracket. This is something that C3 are exceptionally good at - first of all with the Level 6, and now with the Accelerator.


I am personally a bit biased towards any V-shaped yo-yo (sometimes referred to as 'straight shaped' where by the gradient from the rim to the central response is a straight line), here we have what is referred to as a stepped V-shape (as you can see from the profile shot there is a step in the gradient at the rim), this not only makes it more comfortable to hold in the hand, but also effects weight distribution in a fantastic way. This also allows the yo-yo to have a cleaner rim design on the outside (making thumb grinds possible with the lip that's made), and overall a very asthetically pleasing look.


Performance wise - this yo-yo is outstanding (exactly what you'd expect from C3 Yoyo Design). In addition to the long spin times (which to be brutally honest is a bit of a moot point as the majority of yo-yos produced these days all have incredibly long spin times), this yo-yo in particular is fantastic at holding it's axis of spin during horizontal tricks. If you're new to advanced play then this may not be a huge factor for you, but if you're wanting to take your game to the next level, having the flexibility to play on any plane you like is a great bonus.


Weight wise this is just over the 66g mark, which although lighter then some of their other offerings is still a good weight - it's a combination of both the shape and it's weight that lend this yo-yo well to speed play.


All in all, there's not many negative points that can be said about this yo-yo (if any), even the splash colours are gorgeous!

I
f you're looking at this price bracket, this is one of the best items you will be able to get - and is a personal recommendation of mine.

A Budget Beast!

I love this throw, I prefer this over throws that I have that cost more than double this price but this, in my opinion, beats them hands down and is my go to throw. If you have the chance to pick one of these up, do it, you wont regret it!

budget that plays like high priced throws

this yoyo plays like its brother the pwave, and in my opinion even better as it weights some less. with a speedy approach performs horizontals 3d and all other techniques easily. must have.
