Plastic flared gap yoyos have come a long way in the past five years. Many of the top models from 10 years ago or longer feature small bearings, and a sticker or starburst response system.
The Yoyo King Merlin yoyo brings plastic yoyos up to “new school” design standards, with a larger, longer-spinning C sized bearing, and a silicone response system. That kind of design setup means that it’s even possible to install a wide C bearing or even a concave, wide C bearing and make the Merlin into a non-responsive yoyo that requires a bind to wake up.
A wide bearing is not included, but it’s possible to add one to your order if you want to use the Merlin as an unresponsive yoyo and do binding tricks with it.
The design of the Merlin yoyo was optimized to find the best balance of spin time, stability, and ease of catching on the string. This makes it ideal for overall play. The Merlin’s flared gap shape puts weight at the outside edges of the yoyo. That is the part of the design that allows it to spin longer, with more stability.
If you look at the front view of the yoyo, you’ll also notice that angle of the yoyo increases as you get way from the edge. That angle will help you more easily perform string tricks like the Trapeze or Split the Atom, or the Double or Nothing. It quickly guides the string back into the center gap of the yoyo, onto the bearing, to keep the yoyo spinning longer. With the standard narrow C bearing installed in the Merlin, you get just the right amount of responsiveness for all of your standard yoyo tricks. This means that you can tug on the string and make the yoyo wake up and come back to your hand, like a traditional yoyo should operate.
