C3yoyodesign - Initiator 2021 - Yamato Fujiwara player edition in cyan blue with black caps. Yo-yo comes with gold metal spacers.
The Initiator was updated with an improved spacer and axle system though updated from what version is not known.
C3yoyodesign's first looping yo-yo was redesigned based on player feedback. The biggest improvements made were with the spacer and axle system. These two changes helped make the yo-yo easier to handle and maintain. The Initiator is intended for players who are new to looping, and by switching to the metal spacer you can get competition-level looping performance with minimum effort.
The new axle is stronger than the original Initiator from 2015, made from a more robust material that is harder to break. Thanks to these characteristics, the yo-yo has reduced the chance of the string gap changing due to a mid-air collision with another yo-yo or an object. This all-around 2A (looping) yo-yo plays great from beginner to advanced, no matter the looping trick you are trying to perform.
You can change the responsiveness of the yo-yo by adding oil lubricant to the bearing. Also, K-String Normal seems to work best with the yo-yo.
Yamato Fujiwara was a 2A (looping) player and a member of C3yoyodesign's contest team of yo-yo competitors.
