Hideki Toho's 3D printed Hacchi

So. Hideki sent me the Glow in the Dark Hacchi!
He initially wanted to send me the Hacchi caps as well, but he accidentally left them out without knowing, I was looking for it in the package but they weren't there. So let's take a look at some photos before you watch the video of me opening the package and assembling the yoyo.

Hacchi can fit both the 3D printed axle, and also the Proyo wooden axle, which I prefer.
It's pretty light, but it's not a competing yoyo, and the fact that Hideki didn't start out as a yo-yo maker, he only 3D printed other stuff for personal use, and then he produce the Yin Yang yoyo because he was inspired by a Guitarist which somehow have something to do with Yin Yang, maybe his trademark or something, but nothing else was easy enough to carry around so he produced a yoyo that's Yin Yang. And this kind of kick start his yo-yo printing hobby.

So you can see the honeycomb pattern used in most of his products, I personally like it, as I've mentioned before, I first see Shunsuke carrying it on his backpack and was wondering what was that. I like how everything about it look like, it's also a fun to carry around yoyo. A little bit more weight would work even more to my liking! But nonetheless I still enjoy this yoyo!

So here's the video, opening the package, assembling the yoyo, trying out the yoyo, showing the glow. Note that Hideki left out the Hacchi caps by mistake, so there aren't any caps shown.

You can get your own Hacchi by contacting Hideki at east.music.works@gmail.com
However, it takes time for him to print it. As of now, he can print approximately 10 pieces per month, so if you want one, you'll have to pre-order it.

Colors available now are: Lemon, Orange, Peach, Grape, Melon and Glow.
Price is 20USD for the regular colors, and 30USD for the glow ones.
He will ship by EMS, he told me the estimated shipping but I think it'll be best you guys check with him again as I guess it differs from country to country. But the shipping is pretty fast, I received mine within days.

So Hacchi is a fun yoyo that you can carry everywhere, with the honeycomb pattern and holes, I believe mods can be done to it if you really want some weight. I also think it can be bearingized if you have the right spacers and bearings.

I'll post about the Hacchi caps when I get them.
