There is no way to overstate that 44Clash is one of the coolest yoyo contests to ever exist. No matter how cool you might think it is, it’s actually cooler than that in person.
The 2019 Pacific Northwest Regionals was another amazing event, once again setting the tone for the US contest season to come. Check out full results and videos of the winners in all divisions.

“One minute, one throw” videos were the first indication that yoyo technology was moving quickly into “they can do whatever you can think of” territory, but it’s still rare to see one throw videos for anything other than 1A. Watching Mizuki Takimoto play 3A is a treat…watching him put together such a clean and fantastic 1-minute routine on a single throw is just mind blowing.
Yoyo used is the YoYoRecreation Helvetica.
Holy crap, this is not a drill, we got a new Hank Freeman video!! The greatest man ever to escape Ohio brings us two minutes of fresh 3A tricks with the new bi-metal design from 44rpm, the company he started with Drew Tetz. No word on when it will be available, but I’ll keep pestering Drew and Hank for a sample so I can get pics and specs for you. In the meantime, let’s all watch Hank be amazing for two straight minutes and then watch it again.
Yoyo used is the 44rpm Oscillator.
