The Endeavor was created to be a physical reflection of my opinion on what I believe is missing in much of today's style of yoyoing. I cut my teeth on starbursts, new duncan pads, nylon sleeves, busted knuckles, first-throw broken strings, and tiny responsive yoyos that weighed 45 grams wet.
My personal style developed from avoiding rope burn (cotton!) and utilizing organic, flowing movements and transitions out of a need to not take a yoyo to the dome.
The Endeavor is catered to those that embrace smoothness and style over sheer speed. Those that practice not only a trick, but the transitions from one to another, who combo from a bank of moves without needing a plan.
The endeavor is designed to provide an organic feel in hand with an undersized, modern, perfectionist twist.
From a technical standpoint, the Endeavor was designed to be smooth and effortless. Its smaller 50mm diameter allows chopsticks to be second nature while also allowing enough room to machine massive rims.
The ~38mm width is wide enough to land any slack or whips, but not so wide that complex tricks require extra room to execute.
Weight feels light, despite the extra rim weight bringing it up to 67 grams, providing a flowy, easy going yoyo.
The gap is huge at 4.6mm, but the silicon grooves are double wide (4mm, double many other brands) to prevent any string slippage.
7075 aluminum, while more expensive, allowed for an advantageous rim size and crazy wide gap while also providing cool resonance noises during use.
We utilize a flat, fully ceramic bearing that provides a unique feel and noise compared to steel, while lasting much longer due to the fact that it can never rust.
We now offer a high quality 10 ball steel ball bearing for those who wish to get an endeavor, but don't care to pay the premium for a ceramic bearing.
