There is something about a yo-yo that is turned on a hand-guided lathe machine that amazes me. No programs guiding the machine as it cuts into a blank. No mathematical formulas that predetermine weight distribution and outcome. The process is only guided hand of a master imagination. This is why I love Landon Balkís yo-yos. He starts with a blank slate and effectively carves out a masterpiece that not only looks precise, but plays like a machined yo-yo. By all expectations a hand turned yoyo, such a precision and balance dependent item, should wobble like a dump truck on a back county road. Not the case with Landonís 3yo3 creations. I am fortunate enough to have a new 3yo3 yoyo to review this week, the Omnicron, by 3yo3.

I really like the look of the Acryllion. And like you, I find it amazing that 3yo3 yoyos are hand turned. Thanks for the detailed review!At least 15% of what I say is true.
