YoYoRecreation has some new yoyos coming out inspired by famous typefaces, and the first two in the series are Helvetica and Futura. Both solid choices, but really looking forward to seeing what they do with Gill Sans and Frutiger. Featuring sweet tricks from Yuu Fujita, no details yet on the actual yoyos or release date.
Vincent Cergolj has really smart tricks and smooth, almost effortless delivery. We could watch this video for days.
Yoyo used is the SF x Core Co BFF.
C3yoyodesign dropped a quick new video featuring 2x World YoYo Champion Xiao-Wen Wang, and it’s not enough! Only one minute!? MOAR HOBBIT PLEASE!!

We’re super excited to announce that Nick De Valpine has picked up a sponsorship from UNPRLD! Nick has long been one of our favorite players, and it’s great to see him getting some support for his play and stepping up into a new role with UNPRLD. Congrats Nick and UNPRLD!
Yoyo used is the a-rt x UNPRLD Sucction.
You know you’ve arrived when the college you’re attending is shooting videos of you to help recruit new students. But any excuse to watch Takeshi Matsuura throw a yoyo is a good one, right?
Charles Haycock is back with a new video of absolutely beautiful yoyo tricks, but you’ve gotta earn them. The first five minutes of the video is excruciating for all of us with social anxiety who have ever been throwing in public and had to deal with super enthusiastic and ill-informed pedestrians. No one orchestrates cringe like Charles, but this one hits a little too close to home.
Yoyo used is the Quail.
Contains NSFW language.
Doc Pop hopped on a train recently headed up to Eugene, Oregon with the goal of collaborating with the folks at One Drop YoYos to design and produce a new yoyo in 48 hours. Check out the second part of his epic quest to create The Weekender, a new modern responsive yoyo!
Check out this short but sweet promo video for mowl, featuring mowl ambassadors Daiki Tanaka, Kenta Kushiro, and Eiji Okuyama.

Joe Wilson only has one front style trick, but it’s a good one and we like it.
Yoyo used is the Recess Clapback (coming in 2019).
Yoshihiro Abe shows off some smooth 5A in this promo video for the upcoming Duncan Counter Punch. We’ve got a review sample here and it’s a super nice yoyo (Spotlight coming soon!) but ours didn’t come with a counterweight…will this be the new 5A flagship model from Duncan?
