Re: Jordan Hacherl: The 'Stache! A Code 2 Entry.
Okay everybody, It's getting down to the nitty gritty! I've revised my design with some little tweaks and studied some other yoyo designs with this style of weighting in mind and have decided.... the weight shall be increased.
* crowd roars with appluase, chants: "Stache for Prez!" *
The base weight (Halves, bearing, string) will be 62 grams. I'll be changing the SE's to brass and have them weigh in around 3.~ grams. So with any luck this design will settle in right around 65-66 grams!
These new changes will surely add into the areas of spin-times and comfort.
With this I would like to remind everyone of my mission statement and why I would like to be chosen by the community to have this yoyo designed.
I wanted to not only design a yoyo that contained elements of a competition worthy yoyo and a yoyo that was just fun to throw around, I wanted to introduce a new idea to keep pushing innovation of shape and weight placement in yoyo designs. A few center-weighted designs have been made and many, many rim-weighted designs have been made, and so I decided to try and achieve the best of both worlds by designing a yoyo with mostly center weight and a touch of rim weight to give the large diameter some of it's momentum back. With David and Shawns help and expertise, I believe this yoyo would be realized in it's fullest and greatest form.
With some final adjustments I have achieved this goal and with your help, you can get to see this yoyo idea come to fruition, wielding a beautiful moustache for you to admire and place on your face!
So don't vote for me because you think it'd be cool, don't vote for me because It'd be cute, vote for me to get a Moustache themed yoyo.

Well thanks for reading this everyone! I'd like to say thank you to everyone who chipped in suggestions and helped me to steer this yoyo to it's mostly finalized form. I'm still taking comments and suggestions, so if you have something you want to say about the design then say it! I hope this post has been entertaining, enlightening, and enjoyable.
