Title (EN) YO-YO HAVING ENGAGEMENT PADS PROXIMATE ITS AXLE
(FR) YO-YO A DISQUES DE CONTACT PROCHES DE L'AXE
Abstract:
(EN) A yo-yo having unique tether engagement areas (86) adjacent the axle. The engagement areas include an array of grooves (84) and/or rubber pads (90) located in the tether-facing surface of each of the yo-yo's side pieces (82). The grooves and/or pads extend from a point proximate the axle to a point significantly spaced from the axle. In the preferred embodiment, the grooves and/or pads are employed in conjunction with an axle having a ball bearing-supported rotatable outer race (40) to which an end loop of the tether (6) is secured.
(FR) L'invention concerne un yo-yo dont les zones (86) de contact avec le fil sont adjacentes à l'axe. Ces zones de contact comprennent un ensemble d'encoches (84) et/ou des disques en caoutchouc (90) situés sur la surface en regard du fil sur chacune des pièces (82) latérales du yo-yo. Les encoches et/ou disques joignent un point proche de l'axe et un point sensiblement espacé de l'axe. Selon un mode de réalisation préféré, les encoches et/ou disques sont utilisés conjointement avec un axe pourvu d'une bague extérieure (40) montée sur roulements à billes, bague sur laquelle est fixée une boucle terminale du fil (6).
