We got the good stuff from Hungary! Check out a bunch of great play from 4x EYYC champ David Molnar and Duncan pro Viktor Kollar as they run through some of their favorite 5A tricks.
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!

Oh hey, who’s still one of the greatest 5A players of all time? Tyler Severance, that’s who.

Monkeyfinger’s Will Hahn gives up a smooth 5A video for the benefit of all those people wondering why no one plays 5A anymore. Thanks, Will!

Tyler Severance is gearing up for a run at the 2015 World YoYo Contest, and with the launch of his new company that means we get a new counterweight video. Which is most definitely a good thing.
Yoyo used is the Recess Weekend.
Ryosuke Kawamura just totally made my week!
Shingo Terada remains one of my favorite 5A players of all time, and he was a HUGE early influence on the entire style of play. His 5A repeaters remain some of the hardest to pull of smoothly, as he reminded me last time I was in Japan when after an hour of struggling neither Petr Kavka nor I could do any of them.
Shingo Terada is still my go-to player when people ask me how to smooth out their yoyo play, and it’s exciting that he’s not only still competing (and doing well), but that he’s been practicing for 2015 Worlds!
Return top used is the CLYW Wooly Marmot 2.
Daigo Komiya gives up a fresh blast of first-person 5A that makes me feel like I should be typing less and practicing more. Crazy.
Yoyo used is the Markmont Classic by One Drop.
Duncan player Yoshihiro Abe gives up some really fun 5A play in his newest video. I have a soft spot for 5A players, but Yoshihiro is still really damn good.
Yoyo used is the Barracuda by Duncan Toys.
The Philippines’ Paolo Alto is celebrating 5A May (even if everyone else has forgotten, c’mon you guys) with a new video filled with some really legit counterweight play. Check it out! And congrats to Paolo on recently being picked up by YoYofficer as a sponsored player!
Yoyo used is the YoYofficer Hatchet 2.
