Filmmaker Roland Thomas-Biason (aka SLVRANDBLK) captures some truly lovely counterweight yoyo play from Azim Jameel. Quality stuff.
Chase Baxter has officially joined the Duncan Toys sponsored team!
Between this, the release of the Freehand Pro, and the news that it will be carried in Toys R Us nationawide…is Duncan going to start promoting 5A again? Here’s hoping!
Congrats to Chase and Duncan on a great pickup!
Yoyo used is the Duncan Haymaker.
John Wolfe is easily one of the best tech 5A player in the United States right now. You can dispute me if you like, but you’re wrong.
Yoyo used is the Recess Vacation.
World 5A Champion Jake Elliott was on Fox 17 in Michigan today to celebrate National YoYo Day! Nice job, Jake!
4x Filipino National Champion Bryan Jardin has a new signature yoyo coming out with Duncan Toys, and this is our first official look at it! We don’t really have any details on it, but it’s called the Origami and it will likely be a typical budget metal from Duncan…so probably in the $50 range?
Enjoy the video, and I’ll chase down Duncan for more details. 😉
Duncan Crew Japan’s Yoshihiro Abe cranks out a beautiful 5A video for 5A May, the official month where everyone collectively goes “Hey, what happened to 5A?” and a dozen players yell “STILL HERE” and drop excellent videos.
Yoyo used is the Duncan Barracuda.

Fist Salud dropped an amazing new Big Dipper video featuring CLYW team member Petr Kavka, and I’ve already watched it six times. In my professional opinion, you should watch it at least four times. I’m a professional, so I have to do this kind of thing more than you, but four should be pretty good for you. Maybe five.
Filmed last week during a pre-EYYC trip to Berlin, this love letter to The Grey City features beautiful filming and editing, and a fantastic visual breakdown of the tricks and style of Czech uber-champ, Petr Kavka. So damn good!
Yoyo used is the CLYW Big Dipper.
Our friends at The Gioi YoYo dropped a new video with some local Vietnamese 5A, featuring Tran Quoc Huy. Good stuff!
Yoyo used is the Turning Point Positron.
The folks at C3yoyodesign are raging in to 2016 with a pile of great tricks from Sora Ishikawa! Sora is such an amazing talent, and a great fit for the C3yoyodesign team…so glad he found a home there. In this new video he treats us to some stellar 5A, and some crazy 5A/3A hybrid tricks that had jumping out of my seat. Hell yeah, Sora!
There are three things that immediately caught my eye about this video.
- Someone actually released a 5A video. We get, what, like 6 of these a year now?
- Not only is this a 5A video, but it’s a 5A video with Swedish melodic death metal for music. ‘Sup, unicorn?
- It’s actually snowing somewhere. I live in Ohio and I’ve gotten exactly ZERO snow this year so far.
The tricks are pretty good, too. 😉 Thanks, Jace!
Yoyo used is the Monkeyfinger 2Evil.
Oh hey, who’s still one of the greatest 5A players of all time? Tyler Severance, that’s who.
