Ed Haponik has officially joined Tom Kuhn YoYos! He resigned from Werrd just a week ago, and quite suddenly found himself courted by the brand he’s loved the most since he started throwing. Here are Ed’s thoughts on the matter:
Last week, before TK asked me to come onboard, I parted ways with Werrd. They are some of the highest quality people in yoyoing and make equally excellent products. But the stuff they do best isn’t what I tend to play most, so I started to feel disingenuous in representing them. Regardless I’ve got nothing but respect for the crew, and for Stu. I didn’t intend to jump on with another company, but the chance to work with one I feel so connected to was irresistible. Going to be handling community liaison stuff, social media, and giving input on new designs and brand identity. I can’t claim to be an expert on any of that stuff, but that’s not gonna stop me from getting paid to rep a company whose yoyo I have tattooed on my arm.
This is a HUGE leap forward for Tom Kuhn YoYos, who have slipped well behind the rest of the industry in recent years and have only recently started making some forward movement with the brand and new product. Congratulations to TK on picking up such a rare and respected talent as Ed Haponik.
