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!
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.
