Japan's Turning Point released the undersized "Counter-Jet" June 25, 2017. Its bi-metal design was loosely based on "Turning Point 2", Turning Point's mono metal model from July, 2016... but at nearly double the price.

The outer dimensions are nearly identical to the Turning Point 2, but the overall weight is 1.5 grams lighter. Uses a 6061 aluminum body with stainless steel weight rings on the outer perimeter of each halve; size C Dif-E-Yo-branded KonKave ball bearing on a M4 x 16 mm axle, and 19 mm slim silicone response pads

The Counter-Jet is sometimes known, unofficially, as "Turning Point 3". It's a very well crafted, smooth yo-yo with superb balance. This model flew well below the radar in 2017; it was barely even noticed or mentioned on social media.
