For anyone who thinks that modern 1A yoyo play has gotten stale, I present Exhibit A for the defense. Kyle Nations and Doc Pop teamed up for a pretty incredible video of modern responsive 1A play and honestly after watching this I’m running for my wood yoyos to see how many of these tricks I can figure out. So good!!
Congrats to SF on picking up Matyáš Držmíšek, and congrats to Matyáš on the new sponsorship!
Matyáš is one of the best up and coming players in the Czech Republic/probably the world and Tony is his biggest fan. He was probably more excited to offer him a team spot in person than Matyáš was to get on the team. They made this ridiculously adorable video with the moment, the hug, and the Christmas Day unboxing vibes. Excited to see him continue to create dense and visually appealing tricks for 1000 more years.
Yoyo used is the SF Statement.

Check some solid play from this up-and-coming player from Viet Nam…looking good, man!
World YoYo Champion Marcus Koh gives us a great one-throw video…these never get old! It’s always fantastic to see what a top-level player can do on a single throw.

Here is the comment that Connor Seals left on YouTube for this video: “Watching players like Ryoya lowers my self esteem.” That pretty much says it all. Amazing, amazing, amazing.
Yoyo used is the UNPRLD Recognition.
Any day that you get fresh tricks from Arata Imai is a damn good day.
Yoyo used is the Yoyorecreation Inevitable.
