The Trillium is our first hand spinner and it’s made right here in our factory in Eugene Oregon USA.
After 10 years of making high-end yo-yos, we decided to expand to a different kind of spinning toy: the hand spinner. Our goal was a premium spinner with an innovative design. In yo-yos, we invented a new type of axle system called Side Effects which allow for easy modification. We want to bring the same thing to a spinner.
We have started with a tri-spinner (3 legs). The Trillium consists of two titanium body parts that “capture” the bearing (ships with the famous One Drop 10Ball Stainless Steel Bearing that we have used in our yoyos for 10 years) which is retained axially rather than radially like most spinners (either by a press fit or glue). The benefit to this is that the bearing is easy to remove and suffers no damage that a press fit might incur. As well we have found this design to produce a very smooth spinner no matter how many times you take it apart and reassemble. Because the body consists of two pieces they need to be fastened together. We decided to make the fasteners do double duty as the weights. This is cool because they are really easy to change out and this is where we achieved our goal of easy modification. When you purchase a Trillium it will come with titanium 610 size weights installed and an additional set of brass 720 size weights. Out of the box you will be able to swap between these two weight sets and the difference in feel is so significant it’s like getting two different spinners. In the future we will be releasing weights sets in different sizes, shapes and materials.
The final piece is the buttons for gripping the spinner. The Trillium ships with titanium buttons which have our logo engraved on them. They have a recess for gripping and/or inserting our silicon pads. The silicon pads provide dampening and a soft grippy feel. They are also really nice for table spins because they tend to grip so the Trillium stays put. The recess is the perfect size to take in some of the pad of your fingers and the engraving also provides extra grip. It’s personal preference which you will like better and the choice is yours. In the future we will also offer buttons
