CLYW has announced the first retail release of the re-designed Borealis, the signature yoyo of 2015 World YoYo Champion Zach Gormley. While a small pre-release was available at the 2016 World YoYo Contest in Iceland, this is the first full release of this re-designed version of the Borealis. Check out CLYW’s official release below:
The Borealis is the return top that helped Zach Gormley become the 2015 World YoYo Champion, and now it’s even better!
This modified organic shaped return top has quickly become a favorite of players all over the world, and we’ve worked with Zach to adapt the Borealis to better suit his ever changing style. As his tricks have become even more challenging and acrobatic, so must the Borealis change to keep up with his needs. We’ve widened the catch zone a bit and created slightly more of a V-shape to the profile, and moved some weight from the center to the rim for increases stability. The changes sound small on paper, but make a huge difference on the string.
This new Borealis is ideal for fans of the original who are hoping for a little more power and stability…or just anyone looking for a competition-friendly return top with a more comfortable profile.
This run of Borealis ships with a Center Trac bearing.
