YoYoFactory - Pragma
With a wide hollow construction focused on power, the Pragma is the new signature model for Izuru Hasumi!
Carrying the torch from the Singularity, Pragma is the second signature model for Izuru Hasumi. This is a special kind of bimetal design, that has incorporated some "air space" into the area between the body and the stainless steel rim. Another unusual choice is the rather heavy weight of 66 grams, which gives even more power to the bimetal design. It feels like the design of the Singularity has been pushed to its limit with the Pragma, and it's an extreme model that's a true marvel.
The biggest feature of the Pragma is that it maintains an incredibly stable spin all the way to the final rotation; this yo-yo is so perfectly balanced and carefully designed that it absolutely squeezes all the juice out of each throw. It has a life of its own that takes it beyond the Singularity, and it's sure to find a home in the contest scene. It's interesting to compare the Pragma with other bimetal designs, and realize the breadth of design out there.
