The most amazing thing to me about Innovation Movement is not that two of the best players in the world have an eye for talent…it’s that they’re able to find talent that is so incredibly young with trick construction and execution that rivals far more experienced players and even World Champions. Ayumu takes familiar elements and pushes them to their next logical conclusion…while managing to leave us all in shock that we didn’t think of these conclusions ourselves. Another solid find from Innovation Movement.

New YoYoFactory Signature YoYo For Vashek Kroutil *UPDATED*
YoYoFactory just posted this teaser image of a prototype signature model for 5x Czech National Champion Vashek Kroutil. Details from YoYoFactory:
YoYoFactory Prototype Code Name: CZM84VKYoYoFactory always delivers on releases at EYYC. For 2013, we’ve been hard at work on a new model that is a long time coming. The whole office has been stoked on this, and once you get a chance to try it you’ll know why. Available in extremely limited quantities at EYYC. It will also be make its rounds for testing at PNWR and Cal States in the coming weeks. No confirmation that it will see general release at this time.
*UPDATE* YoYoFactory just posted some more info about the origins of this model:
Lots of people expected the starting point to be the Supernova but we actually started with a ROCKSTAR, pushing the profile out to make it faster and concentrating the weight to make it feel more stable, almost like a protostar weight ringed feel to it. The inside is pretty simple and classic, nice lip for thumbs, nice bowl for fingers. Also one can see hints of a full sized contest version of the Europe only QU4DRO in the design. Development hasn’t finished yet but with testing becoming very public at #eyyc13 this weekend it’s time to introduce this yoyo to the world.
