The folks at TYM.de (which might be one of the longest running yoyo websites in the world…click here for an eye-shattering glimpse of what the site looked like in 1999) have released a video of their trip to the 2015 World YoYo Contest in Tokyo. It’s a long one, so settle in with some snacks and take another look back at Japan!
The CLYW team was out in full force at the 2015 US National YoYo Contest in Redondo Beach, California.
Good times? Good times.
Featuring Andrew Maider, Michael Kurti, Zach Gormley, Dennis Cinquegrani, Ernest Kahn, Alec Campbell, and Chris Rodrigues.
It’s that time again…another year, another glorious special edition wooden yoyo from SPYY x TMBR x YoYoExpert to celebrate everyone’s favorite fixie sage, Ed Haponik! Check out the latest video from Ed and a full description of the yoyo below. YoYoExpert still has a few in stock, but once they’re gone…they’re gone.
In 2012, SPYY team member Ed Haponik took a one year oath to play only a single fixed axle, wooden yo-yo. It was a custom design from SPYY who sponsored him at the time. He completed this goal as of 12/31/12 and documented his efforts on 365yoyotricks.com and in several of his clip videos. Ever since Ed has truly helped to inspire a resurgence in fixed axle play!
In 2015 things have changed. SPYY is no longer around has just re-entered the game with a new Titanium Yo-Yo and Ed is still throwing the best fixed axle tricks around via his Instagram page!
In hopes of continuing this amazing story we decided to approach Ed, SPYY, & TMBR. And again this year, all agreed the story and message behind this great yo-yo needs to live on. The legendary yo-yo he used, The EH, is now re-envisioned once again and available in a limited run.
This year, the limited EH is crafted from WHITE oak. This wood offers a beautiful tight grain that isn’t too porous with an excellent density and smoother feel to the touch. This newest version also comes with one of the coolest axle systems out there – The TMBR Wood Thread Axles! Hand carved by Colin Leland, you will not find anything else like these on the market! After spending some time with the new 2015 EH, Ed thinks it’s the perfect fixed axle yo-yo for tricks like stalls, kickflips, varials, and lunar landings!
The 2015 ‘EH’ is limited to 96 pieces and will not be reproduced. Each EH comes packaged with a special signed note from Ed and one side of the yo-yo features the EH logo engraved with the other left untouched to give it a simple clean look. Play Simply Our Friends!

The guys over at Slusny are gearing up for the 2015 Czech National YoYo Contest this Saturday Oct, 31st. They decided to drop a preview of former Czech National champion, Vashek Kroutil, dropping some new tricks as well as some other news. Not personally being able to understand Czech, I reached out to Vashek for some translation about the news in the video.
I am informing that we are releasing SLUSNY Nest 2, in special edition with BU2R and Karel Jerie (artist, who made design for the yoyo), you can win it in special online/Facebook contest or at the FAST Challenge at the competition on Saturday. –Vashek
There will be a total of three (3) red Nest 2 made. One will go to BU2R and the other two will go to the winners of the online contest and the FAST Challenge at the contest. The yoyo was designed by Petr Kavka and Kuba Kroutil.
The level of skill in Czech yoyo scene is crazy talented. I can not wait to see the freestyles drop on online. If you can’t wait to see the performance on YouTube, then you’re in luck. There will be a livestream of the event.
Whether you missed the 2015 World YoYo Contest in Tokyo or were lucky enough to attend, this video should pretty well do the trick for you. Tons of great yoyo tricks from some of the absolute best in the game…Christopher Chia, Shu Takada, Shaqler, Ky Zizan, Colin Beckford, Rei Iwakura, Hank Freeman, and many, many more!
