Professional YoYo Performer Justin Weber has launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for a full production run of the Chameleon, his ultra-oversized yoyo designed for long-string performances. At 80.3 mm it’s the biggest yoyo available anywhere, and even if you’re not a performer you’re gonna want one of these for your collection. They look amazing! Learn more about the project below, and then click over to IndieGoGo to show your support and help Justin make his dream come true. There are just a couple of days left to support this project…hurry up and pre-order yours now!
YoYoFactory went off on another adventure! This one was a little closer to home that usual, and found Gentry Stein and Hans Van Dan Elzen road tripping to Thatcher, Arizona to meet up with one of the competitors from the recent Arizona State YoYo Contest to offer him a second chance. This video is a really sweet reminder that nearly every company in this industry is still just run by a handful of yoyo players. Hope you had a good time, Hiram!
Doc Pop is back with another Popcast, and in this episode we get the amazing news that his proposal for a yoyo emoji has been ACCEPTED! Highest of fives to you, Doc!

We are devastated to announce the death of Robbie Graham.
Robbie was a good guy and a good yoyo player and he was one of us. I wasn’t close to him, but I was always happy to run into him at contests and I always walked away with new ideas and a general sense of ease when I saw him. He was just one of those random good people that you meet in this community, the kind of person that makes you a little better for knowing them. He was too young, and our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
His father, Mark Graham, posted this information on Facebook:
To Robbie’s friends… He suffered an adverse reaction to acetaminophen (which he had been taking for chronic back pain). It caused liver and kidney failure that was irreversible. We let him slip back to God shortly after noon yesterday. We are brokenhearted, but we find comfort in knowing that he is with God. Sadly, all of us must go on without his presence. Thanks to you who loved him and enjoyed his talents.
There is no word yet on a service or where donations can be made in his name, but we’ll update this post with any additional information we’re given.
You know how there are some players where you’re just like “Man, I could just sit and that that dude goof off, like, forever.” Well, here you go. An epic trick dump from Polo Garbkamol to show off his new signature model from YoYoFactory, and instead of a typically fast-paced product video it’s just Polo kicking back and cruising through 5+ minutes of solid tricks. So good. Put it on repeat.

Pisco Ouyang delivers a fantastic promo video for the newest release from Yoyofficer. Another beautiful example of the work and dedication that goes into the art and sport of modern yoyo play.

Coleman Weimer and Harrison Lee are best friends forever, and they’ve got the video to prove it. Since their first video together in 2013, Coleman and Harrison have been dropping new “We Got This” videos every so often to celebrate their friendship and mutual love of yoyoing. And because context is everything, here are the other three videos so that you can see the difference that five years makes.
William Murphy brings some fun, solid tech in this preview video. Preview of what, you ask? Looks like more full length videos from William and lemme tell ya we are here for it.

Anthony Rojas brings us another round of the most unique and stylish tricks you’ve ever seen in this new video for CLYW, shot and cut by Alann Herrera. This guy is a never-ending fountain of ideas. Brilliant.
Yoyo used is the CLYW Pickaxe.
Simple as it gets, saw him on stage, loved his style. With the light fading, we filmed tricks in the unforgiving cold. Aleksander remained unphased and chill throughout.

Doctor Popular’s “Popcast” has returned after a 10-year hiatus! The first yoyo vlog is back, and it’s got an unboxing, discussion about friction mounts, puns, and a marginally useful bolt cutter. Neat!
