Three minutes of new tricks and new concepts from YoYoFactory Protege, Joe Wilson.
After the Genesis was released in 2009 to rave reviews and massive popularity, YoYoFactory wondered if there was anything that they could do to improve this design. After testing a few different concepts, the overwhelming winner was the addition of YoYoFactory’s patented triple bearing Hubstack System. Not only do the hubstacks enable you to perform different tricks, but the additional weight and the altered weight distribution change the Genesis into a completely different beast. Limited in color and quantity, these won’t last long!
56.4 mm Diameter
43.94 mm Wide
The Genesis is available now at YoYoExpert.com.
Tonight at 10:00 PM EST the LOOP 1080 releases at YoYoExpert as part of Wave 2 of the YoYoFactory Champions Collection. Retail price is $23.99 each.
This highly anticipated yo-yo was designed with input from World Yo-Yo Champion Shu Takada and was already used to win the 2012 National Yo-Yo Contest by Patrick Mitchell. The Loop 1080 has improved weight distribution and a fully centered adjustment mechanism, giving it a completely different feel and improved performance from the much-vaunted (and highly impressive) Loop 900.
YoYoFactory seems to have finally cracked the secret of the perfect looping yoyo without requiring modification…how many world and national titles do you think the Loop 1080 will bring in 2013?

Juggler Wes Peden has released a new 45-minute show called “Water on Mars”, and it’s absolutely incredible. Water on Mars is a compilation sequence by Wes, Tony Pezzo, and Patrik Elmnert presenting routines, patterns, and tricks the three have been developing for the past 3 years. The project was motivated by good tricks, good angles, and the possibilities for prop transitions when you have extremely competent assistants. The video contains 81 new patterns, the 5 club diamond lock, an upside down albert triplex, a 11 club pirouette, the best 5 ring routine alive, and synchronized 7 clubs.
Training under Jay Gilligan, Wes has established himself as one of the most creative voices in modern juggling. Check out this trailer, and then head over to his site to buy the full show as a digital download for only 15 euros (about $20 USD).

You’d be hard pressed to find a more creative, passionate, drive group of professionals then those of the YoYoFactory Team. World and National Champions, International icons, Trick innovators. Each move of each trick is meticulously refined to be the most valuable, jaw dropping maneuver on stage, or film. Paulo is no exception. Holding it down for us in Southern California, and ushering in a new generation of Champion Yo-Yo Players, his tricks are deep. This new concept video takes it beyond just a new set of tricks, but explores a larger flow and visual concept that is wonderfully executed.
The folks over at Kengarden just posted this fantastic video…great tricks, good laughs, and it’s amazing how much all skill toy folks seem to get equally silly when they hang out together. Great stuff!
