Porykon minTear Counter Weight
The Signature Counterweight for Naoki Uemae (Team PoryKon Japan)
Naoki is an active 5a player with unique tricks and routines. He is used to playing with light counterweight .
We decided to design a counterweight for him comprehensively.
“I love Fu-Ring design, but I wanna the size can be a little smaller and the weight can be lighter than Fu-Ring.”
With Naoki’s opinions, we keep using B-Lock system (Concept By Sora Ishikawa), focus on decreasing weight and adjust the size. We made the first prototype of minTear for Naoki, he used it to win SJ 2020 5A Champion. After SJ2020 we had discussed with Naoki, we had revised something on the prototype, particulars are listed below :
Production by : SLA 3D Printing > CNC Machining Processing
Material : SLA Resin > Polycarbonate (PC)
minTear is the 1st of PC Product and the lightest and most sturdy counterweight in our items (around 9g with bead). It gives light feeling but still can control the moving speed easily and has durable enough.
*The 4 different types of package design each created by Naoki, different colours with different themes.
