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.
