The Trick Motion is a bi-metal yoyo from Japanese boutique manufacturer YoYo Studio Llama. Undersize and designed for tech and speed, theTrick Motion stands out in a crowded market.
TheTrick Motion is a bi-metal yoyo, featuring an aluminum body with brass rings. The result is a yoyo with a really solid feel in the hand and spin times that never seem to end. Designed with small, tech play in mind (the listing on their site actually recommends chopsticks and protrusion-type tricks specifically), the Trick Motion excels at this kind of play! It’s incredibly fast on the string with spin time to spare, and the YoYoRecreation DS bearing that it ships with really adds to the feeling that this yoyo is twice as fast as you are. If you’re looking for something that can handle your toughest contest routine, and you like a yoyo that is a bit undersized, the Trick Motion will serve you well.
The Trick Motion holds to its Japanese roots with a subtle aesthetic that is a welcome change of pace. Anodized in several dark, very traditional-looking Japanese colors (as well as available raw and in a really eye-catching light blue), the Trick Motion has a classic and understated look. The brass rings have been coated with a special “black oxide film”, which gives the brass a sort of antique finish, while also protecting it from the oils on your hand. Well-worn brass tends to pick up a funky smell, and this special coating helps prevent this from happening. The Trick Motion comes in a simple wooden box with the YoYo Studio Llama logo laser engraved in the corner of the lid.
The Trick Motion retails for ¥23,800 (about $199 USD), kicking it up in to the premium range for sure. Manufacturing in Japan is expensive, and a bi-metal with brass rings is fairly uncommon. The fit and finish are definitely worth it, and if you are seeking an undersized bi-metal the Trick Motion will serve you well for years to come. It’s not a casual purchase, but this yoyo is definitely worth the price if the specs are what you’re looking for. The Trick Motion is also a very limited production item…collectors, take note!
