The Axis YoYos EX! is the second bi-metal release from Axis YoYos, and their first new release of 2016.
The Axis EX! has rim weight for days, and as any good bi-metal yoyo it just never seems to slow down. The EX! has a severe V-profile with a bit of a step on the rims, internal stainless steel weight rings, along with a gap step that leads the walls even further away from the string. Definitely designed with horizontal play in mind, you’ll get very little friction against the walls when playing horizonal, and the internal cup is great for fingerspins (as long as you don’t mind the engraving). For intermediate players who need that extra spin time to work the kinks out of their tricks, or contest killers who need a little extra spin and stability on stage, the Axis YoYos EX! will do the job.
The Axis YoYos EX! comes in six different solid colors, with a corresponding sticker and unique art designed for each colorway. The logo is clean, comic-book style art and the big, bold engraving looks great on the smooth inner cup of the yoyo halves. Overall it’s a clean look, and the unique packaging for each colorway really puts it over the top.
The Axis YoYos EX! retails for $115, which is a pretty typical price for quality bi-metal yoyos. With all the spin time and stability you expect in a bi-metal yoyo, it’s definitely another quality release from Axis. If you liked their Pulsefire but want something a little more geared towards horizontal play, the EX! is a great choice.
