Simpson Wong from C3yoyodesign gives us a look at how he personally anodizes all the yoyos for C3yoyodesign. Not a lot of companies have this level of creative control over their final product, and it’s deeply heartening to see how much joy Simpson gets from making sure that every C3 yoyo looks exactly the way he wants it to.

C3yoyodesign has one of the most well-rounded and complete product lines on the market, with something for nearly every taste and need. Magic YoYo has one of the largest ranges of entry level price points for a variety of styles. The two companies met years ago at a contest in China, and hit it off. After bumping into each other again last year, they decided to work together on a new model and we got the Vapormotion, a new fingerspin yoyo designed for high performance at a low price.
The C3yoyodesign x Magic YoYo Vapormotion is a full plastic/metal hybrid, something we haven’t a lot of since YoYoJam closed up shop. An incredibly minimal plastic body holds together two large metal side panels that act as both weight rings and fingerspin cups.
The C3 x Magic YoYo Vapormotion plays almost absurdly fast! Fans of a quick, light play style will absolutely adore the Vapormotion as it’s perfect for zipping through a ton of tricks quickly with a light touch on the string. It definitely feels like a 64 gram yoyo on the string, with that unique hybrid feel that’s bi-metal performance at a bargain price.
The spin time is pretty excellent, thanks to the extreme weight distribution created by the large metal cup design, and as you can imagine it’s fantastic for fingerspin tricks. If you’re looking for a fingerspin yoyo, you’ve found it. If you’re looking for something that is stable and fast for speed combos, you’ve found it. If you’re looking for something that really doesn’t feel like any other yoyo released in the past couple of years, you’ve found it.
The Vapormotion keeps things simple without a lot of engraving or splash anodizing. This is a yoyo that was designed to play and play well, and they’ve allowed the actual design of the yoyo to really be the visual standout here. The box graphics (which follow the theme of the video thumbnail above) are a nod to Memorex cassette tapes from the late 80s / early 90s, but the looks of the yoyo itself are kept clean and distraction-free. Since the entire cup of the yoyo is meant to be a play area, there is no engraving that would interfere with play, and this allows you to really appreciate the shape that they designed. The Vapormotion is available in either solid colors or acid washes, both of which look great and are nicely done. (The acid washes do not interfere with play, since there is not the same kind of build-up that you get with splash anodizing.)
The C3yoyodesign x Magic YoYo Vapormotion retails for $45 for solid colors and $55 for acid washes, making it an easy purchase for casual players and an affordable competition model for serious players who will need a half-dozen of them for contests. Fans of C3 and Magic YoYo should cop this yoyo immediately, fans of Ethan Wong Wing Hang should cop this yoyo immediately, and anyone who just loves unique yoyo design and great play should cop. this. yoyo. immediately!
The C3yoyodesign x Magic YoYo Vapormotion is available now at YoYoExpert.com.

C3yoyodesign Bastet Specs:
Diameter: 56.17 mm
Width: 43.3 mm
Weight: 66.1 grams
Response: 19mm Slim Pad
Bearing: Centering Bearing Size C (.250 x .500 x .187)
Retail Price: $45 USD
C3yoyodesign has one of the most well-rounded and complete product lines on the market, with something for nearly every taste and need. The Bastet fills the void left by the retiring of the Capless, giving C3yoyodesign a classic, organic shape yoyo that pairs an old school feel with modern performance capabilities.
The C3yoyodesign Bastet feels big, plays light, and holds spin better than the average organic shape yoyo. C3’s clever working of the profile and inner cup design allow for weight to be moved just a tiny bit more towards the rim while still keeping the aesthetic of a yoyo with uniform wall thickness. The cut in the profile is clearly visible to the eye but almost unnoticed in the hand, allowing for a wide gap that can handle modern tricks easily. The result is a yoyo that looks and feels organic but has the spin and stability of a more v-shaped design.
The weight balance is exceptional, giving the Bastet a light, floaty feel on the string without sacrificing performance. Many modern players seek yoyos that are more like “comfort food”, with the look and feel of the classic designs that they started with…but their tricks continue getting more and more complicated. The C3yoyodesign Bastet expertly bridges that gap between nostalgia and performance.
C3yoyodesign has done a great job with the Bastet, creating a profile that is deeper and more interesting than a typical organic shape. By keeping an uninterrupted curve for most of the rim, the yoyo feels rounder in the hand than it actually is. The cuts in the profile are subtle and keep it visually interesting without looking awkward or forced. The inner cup of the yoyo has a massive space for engraving, and a subtle double-cut transition from the flat face to the upper wall, which breaks up the look just enough to keep things interesting.
The Egyptian-inspired engraving is well done and stands out among other yoyos on the market, and the anodizing is top notch, as we always get from C3yoyodesign.
The C3yoyodesign Bastet retails for just $45, making it an easy purchase for even casual players. Fans of C3 should be able to afford to scoop this up without hesitation, and it’s a great addition to your case or collection at a super reasonable price.
The C3yoyodesign Bastet is available now at YoYoExpert.com.
