The CLYW Manatee yoyo is the new signature yoyo for Riccardo Fraolini. Riccardo wanted a similar feel look as the Artic Circle 2 with the rims, but asked for a different feel on the string. Out of this idea, the Manatee was created.
The Manatee has step straight shape with a super wide profile. With this wide profile, you get a huge catch zone for all those tricky catches and plenty of rim weight. The rim weight gives it the power and stability to get through those long tricks and combinations.
The Manatee's weight distribution makes it really easy to control the speed of your play, whether you are slowing down a trick for video or pushing for ultra-fast contest play. This is a monometal yoyo, but with wide thick rims you can deliver powerful, stable throws. The build of the Manatee makes it easy to control the speed and the fit in the hand allows control over your throws. This is a smooth yoyo and with its excellent weight distribution, you get a stable yoyo at slow speeds.
If you’re looking for a yoyo that can land string tricks, try the Manatee. It’s easy to catch on the string with is wide body. You’ll want to try slack string tricks with this yoyo. Also, the smooth processed finish on the surface makes for great grinds.
The Manatee is an unresponsive yoyo and requires a bind to wake up the yoyo and return to your hand.
