The Manatee is the new signature return top for Riccardo Fraolini, and one of our favorite designs to date. Riccardo has made a name for himself as the undisputed king of the #trickcircle, posting some of the most mind-blowing original tricks imaginable to his Instagram and Facebookaccounts, and he wanted a return top that would make his nearly-impossible tricks just a little more consistent.
The Manatee design started with the Arctic Circle 2; Riccardo wanted a similar feel look with the rims, but asked for a different feel on the string. The Manatee has a super wide profile with a huge catch zone for all those tricky catches, and plenty of rim weight to help you get through those long tricks and combos. The Manatee's weight distribution makes it really easy to control the speed of your play, whether you are slowing down a trick for video or pushing for ultra-fast contest play.
This yoyo is unresponsive.
