Yoyo used is the CLYW Pickaxe.

The CLYW team got together at the 2017 European YoYo Championship in Bratislava, Slovakia for all the usual stuff…yoyo tricks, laughing, arm wrestling, yoyo tricks, drinking beverages, dance parties, hangovers, and more yoyo tricks. Always amazing.
Featuring Andrew Maider, Petr Kavka, Palli Gudmundsson, Nuu Gatowsky, David Kreibich, Tomas Vyletel, and Alec Campbell.
Heaven Sent is a CLYW sub-brand, operated and directed by Alec Campbell. Their first release, the Creep, is a 56 mm yoyo with a throwback organic shape and some gloriously weird videos (including this one) to promote it. There are just a few pieces left at HeavenSent.rip, and no plans to make any more.
The first collection includes hats, t-shirts, and two colorways of the Creep, an organic shaped yoyo that has been generating a ton of buzz from everyone who has tried it.
Check out their look book video above, and specs for the Creep below.

The CLYW team tore it up at the 2016 US National YoYo Contest this year with a half-dozen players making finals in two divisions, and now we get to see what they were up to when they weren’t on stage. Check out some great tricks from Anthony Rojas, Tessa Piccillo, Ernest Kahn, Michael Kurti, Andrew Maider, Zach Gormley, Harrison Lee, Alec Campbell, Mark Mangarin, Grayson Johnson, and Isaac Nozick.
Alec Campbell is launching his own brand soon, called “Heaven Sent“. Produced for Alec by CLYW, the first production model is called the Creep, and will be available soon. In the meantime, we’re getting plenty of weirdly cool videos and teasers on Instagram. Specs, pricing, and more info coming soon!
Full disclosure: I have a prototype Creep, it’s my favorite, I competed with it at Worlds, I haven’t been this excited about a yoyo release in a while.
Nehemiah Peterson dropped a new video (shot and cut by Alec Campbell, so that’s pretty rad) with some great new tricks. Sweet!
Yoyo used is the Basecamp Expedition.
Ben Conde documented the first Basecamp trip and lemme just say right now: I am now really, really jealous and wish I could have been there. Absolutely amazing!!
Featuring Ben Conde, Ben McPhee, Chris Mikulin, Alec Campbell, a bear, and more nature than you can shake a stick it.
Yoyo used/abused is the YoYoFactory Flight.
The very first Basecamp trip saw Ben McPhee, Chris Mikulin, Ben Conde, and Alec Campbell trek up into the mountains in Jasper, Alberta for a week of bonding, throwing the first Basecamp production samples, swapping tricks, and enjoying the amazing scenery. This video was shot on that trip, and shown first at the Basecamp launch party in Cleveland, Ohio during the 2016 World YoYo Contest.
Yoyos used are the Basecamp Expedition, Jackknife, and Moonshine.
Basecamp, the new collaboration brand by CLYW and YoYoFactory, kicked off with three new yoyo releases. The Expedition for competition, the Jackknife for fingerspins and fun, and the Moonshine for walking the dog in style. The Moonshine is a slimline, responsive pocket yoyo meant to be played and beaten up, and we’ve got video to prove it. Featuring Alec Campbell, David Ung, Petr Kavka, Aaron Davis, and more flyaway dismounts than you’ve seen in a long damn time.
The Basecamp Moonshine is a one-time production run, never to be produced again.
