The Weekend is the first bi-metal release from Recess, the new company from World & National Champion Tyler Severance. The yoyo is stable, fast, and is well-suited for the highest levels of play in 1A, 3A, and 5A styles.
The Recess Weekend is a fast, stable player that muscles through most tricks with ease. The shape is comfortable and familiar, and the Weekend always seems to have a bit more spin left than you expect. The Weekend really excels at both 1A and 5A, and the stainless steel rims are in a great spot to really maximize the weight distribution and keep the Weekend moving through even the craziest of plane-bending tricks. The extra-large finger spin area inside the cup does it’s job beautifully, and coupled with the bi-metal design the Weekend is a tremendous choice for players looking to up their horizontal game.
Available in several solid colors, the look of a bi-metal yoyo never gets old. Solid color anodizing with that shiny steel rim always looks good, and the Recess Weekend has a few other nice touches that set it apart. The non-symmetrical art is well outside the box for normal yoyo engravings, and keeping the finger spin cup clear of artwork not only helps with play but also gives the Weekend a unique look. The anodizing and engraving are both well done, and the fit of the rims to the body is smooth and clean.
The Recess Weekend retails for $120, placing it out of the realm of a casual purchase but still a very reasonable price at the lower end of the spectrum for quality bi-metal yoyos. With a unique look, the backing of a World & National Champion, and plenty of play value, the Recess Weekend is worth the price for any serious competitor.
