I wonder what I could do to make it a little lighter.


Image
Hey, what is this inside my Novus?


Image
If I push these brass nuts out...


Image
and replace them with something a little less dense and heavy...


Image
That was pretty easy to push into place.


Image
What? 4 grams lighter in a matter of seconds. I wonder if I will be able to add more weight in the future.

You know...looking at this axle system...someone needs to mod a Bapezilla to fit these. With two blue halves. And silicone.

I hear that depleted uranium is substantially denser than brass, although the long-term health effects are not really conducive for playing with... :lol: :lol: :lol:

db

P.S. On a slightly heavier note, tungsten is even denser than uranium...hint...hint... ;)

If you want lighter yo-yos Paul, I would have Shawn look into magnesium tips. From talking to Ernie at Gen-Yo, Mg is a pain in the but to machine so it might be a no go for Mg tips.

They don't fit in any previous yoyo we've made. Our plan is to use them on our future yoyos.

man, I got one of these in the modder fodder package, and wow this is gonna be the mona lisa for OD, really really stepped their game up, also the axle system is probably the most genius idea I've ever seen, one of the main problems I ahve with metals is wear on the seat causing vibe, and this basically makes it possible to fix this problem with a 5 dollar axle..genius is all I can say
