Surveillance "1.9 Prototype"

mowl Ambassador The development of the second generation surveillance has begun, hoping for the further success of Daiki Tanaka.

We have received very strong support from many people.surveillance ThemowlIt can be said to be one of the symbols of the brand.
To be honest, there was a big conflict in changing the model that has been supported.However, in order to explore further possibilities1stModel production2018We decided to stop at the end of the year and start developing an updated model.

While discussing the direction of the upgraded version of surveillance, why not change the aluminum material instead of making major changes in shape?Development started from that place.

1stAbout surveillance
When developing the first surveillance in the year, the concept was "a yo-yo with a bimetal structure that is easy to control."It was a yo-yo that kept the rotational force peculiar to bimetal and could give as much speed as you wanted, and could stop or move quickly when adjusting the strength of the trick.

Therefore, a spot for thumb grind is created so that the center of gravity does not move only to the outer circumference, making it easier to control the yo-yo.The thumb grind spot allows you to grab a yo-yo, hook your fingers, and expand your range of play.

And to give a margin to the length of the shaft, a protrusion is made in the center of the face to improve the durability of the yo-yo.

Surveillance shape makes it easier to grind, and as a result of researching ease of gripHIt became a profile shape.
The direct line is not too big and too small, and I designed it with the size in mind that anyone can hold it.

Deeply scooped out the edge composed of a straight shapeHDue to the profile shape, I was able to finish the yo-yo with a very satisfying rotational force without complaint.

About updated surveillance
2019While developing the prototype several times a year, I could clearly feel that "surveillance had evolved" from the moment I held it in my hand, so it became a flow of product launch.

The current situation is that we have made many trials and errors and meetings.2ndIt is a model.I made an updated model for the first time this time, but the most difficult thing was to "evolve while preserving the good points".I want to make sure to keep the good points and attract the big changesI made it with the idea.

About Surveillance "1.9 Prototype"
This is the first attempt to launch a prototype before the product is launched.Can we make some interesting attempts with the release of Surveillance Ti?We consulted with Daiki Tanaka and decided to release the prototype this time.
Surveillance "1.9 Prototype" to be released this time is a limited item of mowl Pop-Up Store Rewind Shibuya and mowl Online Store to be held on February 2th (Sun).

The stock is extremely low because it is produced as a final sample with a model that was not originally planned to be sold.
* Please note that it may be sold out due to a time lag.

The production version of the new surveillance has already been completed and is waiting for inspection work at the Chinese factory.
It is scheduled to be released at the end of February, but the release may be postponed due to the influence of the coronavirus, so we will inform you of the release information when the arrival information is confirmed again.

Samples will be placed at partner shops after the general release date, so please try it.
