Rewind YoYo Store dropped a new player promo video, this one for YoYoFactory’s Mateusz “Gacek” Ganc. Great play as always from Gacek, but we’re really enjoying this video series from Rewind…it’s a great idea, and they’ve done a great job with it so far.
Kieran Cooper really comes into his own with this new video release from Innovation Movement. No giant leaps here, but some really nice progressions of concepts we’ve been seeing a lot of lately. Kieran has great style and trick construction, and it’s nice to see him getting his due.

“Uncharted” is a new video featuring Hiroaki Yoshii and Keigo Akita and there are some truly beautiful tricks in here. The sequence starting at 0:25, the repeater move at 0:40, the slack move at 0:58, the sequence starting at 1:16….so much good stuff in this video!
Malcolm Chiu (recent Bip Bop Cliff winner) released another “Try This Trick” tutorial that’s worth checking out. “Suicide Hook” is a really subtle but great-looking trick…nice work, Malcolm!
YoYoFactory just dropped a quickie video shot at their European offices featuring Vashek, Gacek, and Kojo putting the new CzechMate yoyo through some tricks.
Made in the USA, launched in Japan, and hanging out in Europe…the CzechMate gets around.
May 1st marks two years of throwing for Cleveland YoYo Club member Colin Beckford, and his new video shows how far he’s come. Colin is a great talent, and it’s been a pleasure to watch his steady improvement. Congrats on your two years, Colin, and here’s looking forward to the next ten!
It’s Monday morning, and that means it’s time for you to witness the furious awesomeosity of the incalculable creativity of the incomprehensible something something something whatever.
Takeshi Kamisato sets the bar high for the week with a Snap to Green Triangle. Damn.
Spencer Berry gets his fixed axle on with an EH from SPYY.
More fixed axle goodness as I find a Spintastics Technic axle in my junk drawer, throw it in a YoYoFactory Velocity, and start getting weird.
I’ve made up hundreds of tricks, but I still have no idea which ones people are going to get excited about. For some reason, this one got a lot of praise. Still no idea why.
Here a stall, there a stall, everywhere a stall stall…
An experiment in minimalism…what are the simplest components you can create something new from? I chose Trapeze and a Split Bottom Mount. Turned out nice, I think.
And Rafael Matsunaga wraps things up with a benchmark trick in the history of counterweight play, the One-Handed Helicopter. Still beautiful, still really damn hard.
Looks like these three have gotten themselves into a one throw 5A battle over on the YoyoExpert forum. You should check the videos out below and vote for your favorite on the YoyoExpert forum. I won’t tell you who I voted for (okay, it was Robbie), but really great stuff from all three.
Anthony Rojas, everyone. Really don’t need to say anything else.
Proper Magazine just featured him and his obsessions in their Favourite Fives column, and it’s well worth clicking through and reading if you’re interested in just what gets a serial entrepreneur excited.
Giving us some more of that gloriously bendy style that we’ve come to expect and love from Isaac, this video is a solid endorsement of the Strix, due out this summer from Duncan Toys.
STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING, there’s a new Yuuki freestyle. The man who many consider to the greatest of all time recently demoed for one of the best clubs in America, Oahu-based Yoyofactory808. Alex Garcia and Masamitsu Yanase were on hand to catch it on video, and Yuuki has passed the clip along to Chris at CLYW for a Friday afternoon treat. Not only is this one of the first Yuuki clips in a while, but it’s also one of the only multi-angle freestyles I’ve ever seen of him – funny, considering that he’s a world champ and this video is coming from a club at a mall. Discuss this, your favorite Yuuki freestyle music, and that crazy horizontal around the world move in the comments below.
