Defending National Champion Zach Gormley is hitting the stage today with his brand new signature model from CLYW, the “Arctic Circle: Second Expedition” and YoYoNews has your first look and full specs! We spoke briefly to CLYW owner and designer Chris Mikulin about what has changed for this new model.
“For Zach’s new signature model, we started with the Arctic Circle and added inner hub design elements from the Avalance and Bear Vs Man 2, both of which have been getting a lot of play time from Zach.” said Chris Mikulin. “We made this version bigger and wider than the Arctic Circle, but wanted to retain the original’s speed. We kept the weight low to keep the return top fast, but removed the double rings and optimized the rim weight for stability, so that it requires low energy to get up to full RPMs. We also lowered the wall in the gap to make it perfect for horizontal play. The new Arctic Circle is a perfect blend of spin time and stability for competition and light, fast play for fun.”
