The Interlagos – By Victor Sacchelli and Smashing YoYo Company

As soon as Victor joined us, he said he wanted to be involved from the top down. He has a complete education in Industrial Design and wanted to put his passion for that, into his passion for yoyos. I told him to show me what he wants and I went with it.

This was the render he showed me. As you can see, it looks powerful and he clearly has a good eye for aesthetic flair so I immediately grabbed the CAD files from him and sent it off for prototyping. Some time later, we got them, tested them, and let as many people as we could try them to make sure it was perfect. I can’t tell you how impressed we all were with his work.

As you can see from the first image, it has a finger spin section in the cup. It’s not completely centering, you have to nail it but if you do, it’s so powerful you have time to check your messages before you have to bind it.

Honestly, you have time to take a selfie too.

Fingerspins are secondary to how powerful it is. If you’ve seen Victor play, you know his tricks are demanding so he needed a powerhouse of a throw. It’s light enough to move fast if you want it to and stable enough to handle all the force you can put on it. All that and it’s got fat, comfortable rims!
