Multiple-time World Champion Hiroyuki Suzuki will be on Korean TV show “Star King” on February 23rd.
According to kstyle.com, Mickey will be performing with Korean pop girl group KARA, yoyoing to their chart-topper song “Pandora”. Singers Park Gyu-ri and Kang Ji-young will also show their yo-yo skills, with mixed levels of success.
Expect the segment to be available on Star King’s YouTube channel shortly after it airs.
Michael Stecz is yet another part of this wave of incredible new talent that we’re seeing take over the yoyo scene. Judging by the quality of the up-and-coming players we’re seeing so far this year, I think we can safely expect the 2013 contest season to have a lot of surprises and upsets.
Michael Stecz is an amazing 1A player from Michigan, 2012 MidEast Regional Champion and Junior Player of the Year voted online and by the National YoYo Association. At 13 he’s already dominating the contest scene, even Worlds. Watch out for more of him.

Our fantastic sponsor YoYoExpert.com has some great new releases available from Kitty String and CLYW!
String tricks evolve and so does the string you use to learn them on. Kitty String is a fantastic yo-yo string brand from the Philippines crafted from 100% polyester and available in a wide array of great styles and colors. Available now is the ‘Normal’ Type Kitty String in the exclusive YoYoExpert NEON Pack! This is the most recommended version and gives smooth unresponsive play while still giving extremely tight binds to ensure long spin every throw.
Kitty String uses a very soft form of polyester that gives you a smoother feel during play and doesn’t rough up your hands as much either. They also give you just slightly more length averaging around 43 to 45 inches so you have some extra room to adjust (110-115cm).
(Note: No finger loop is tied in the string allowing you to adjust to your height and tie your own.)
There are 100 strings in total. 20 of each color type – Neon Yellow, Neon Orange, Neon Green, Neon Pink, & Neon Blue.
Caribou Lodge (CLYW) is a company on a mission to combine amazing yo-yo design with art. Each product they make is a true masterpiece and you can tell from the first throw what an amazing amount of work went into it.
And finally CLYW fans can rejoice and look cool with these great CLYW logo T-Shirts. This T-Shirt features their CLYW Pick Axe Logo silk screened on the front of a black T-Shirt. (Logo designed by the amazing yo-yo innovator Paul Escolar.)
We used only the highest quality T-Shirt – American Apparel so you can expect a very well fitting t-shirt of the softest quality and the print will really hold up to use and wash.
