A chill pill for your pocket.
Just got a little time in with the melatonin so far, and I'm enjoying it. Compact, sort of comparable to the Good Life Valley, but narrower so more pocket friendly. Very smooth lines, but not an organic shape, more like a very comfortable V, which isn't something I've seen much of in the past couple of years. Nicely balanced weight profile so it spins up and down in a natural feeling way. Cool rounded cup with a little raised cup in the center that feels like it would be good for pull-starts. The sides feel pretty solid with no really thin areas that would easily be bent or damaged, which is also to sort of repeat from above that the weight seems to be fairly evenly distributed. Speaking of weight, I was surprised to see that it was 67g which sounds heavy for a small yo-yo, but it doesn't feel heavy while in play. The surface is very matte, comparable to the finish on the YYF Uppercut, which is probably 7.5/10 on the "shiny to Atmos" scale. Hard to really describe how a yo-yo plays in words, but the melatonin is unique in that it's not following any particular design trends but also isn't extreme in any sense either. It's a solid, comfortable and very capable yo-yo.
