When Miguel Correa first started blueprinting his signature ”Genesis” yo-yo, the idea was to make an incredibly stable, heavy rim weighted design. When the Genesis made its way to the US National yo-yo contest and placed 1st in two divisions, we knew we had something BIG. The Genesis is designed with extreme rim weight which keeps the yo-yo extremely stable, but also nimble on the string. This is a serious competition yo-yo and Miguel Correa would accept nothing less.
WARNING: The Genesis is "non-responsive" which means that it will not return to your hand unless you can do a "bind" return. Check out this video showing how to "bind" a non-responsive yo-yo: http://www.yoyofactory.com/bind/
