Freshly Dirty wanted to keep the same general profile as the Dreamboat (the inspiration for this new model) while giving it a totally new weight distribution. The clean rounded cup is visually appealing, and the H shaped profile still allows it to have plenty of rim weight. One of the more ‘old school’ design features of the original Dreamboat was the mid wall, which really helped it excel at tricks like regens and stalls. For the Cardboard Steamboat, they kept that mid wall, but rounded it down slightly. This changes the way the yoyo feels on the string, almost giving it the feedback and control of a classic organic shape. It’s a bit of a quirky solution to allow this yo-yo to mimic the best traits that H shaped and organic shaped yo-yos have to offer.
