YoYoFactory has been supporting the yoyo scene in Mexico for nearly a decade, sponsoring their players and sending special guests to their events. This year they attended the 2017 Mexican National YoYo Contest with Evan Nagao and shot some beautiful footage with team members Luis Enrique, Betty Gallegos, and Paul Kerbel.
John Ando is one of the most influential players of the modern yoyo era and if you don’t know why, this video should clear it up. His unique trick construction showcases the very best of the modern era…truly unique moves and transitions that catch your eye immediately and on closer inspection are simple enough that you can’t imagine why you didn’t think of them yourself. His form and technique are flawless, and it’s no wonder that top level players all over the world cite Ando as a major influence on their play.
Yoyo used is the YoYoFactory Genesis.
YoYoFactory has always been a player’s company. From the very beginning, it was two yoyo players trying to build better yoyos and put them in the hands of as many people as possible. YoYoFactory’s team has been filled with incredible talent from the start, and their attention to players needs is absolutely unrivaled in the industry.
YoYoFactory has gotten back to their roots with a series of custom Doomsday Genesis, built custom for Luis Enrique Villasenor for his run at the 2013 World YoYo Contest. Four versions were created, each with minute differences in weight and width, to give him the opportunity to find exactly the right throw the day of the contest for his routine. Practice and attention to detail paid off, and Luis took 3rd Place at this year’s World YoYo Contest. Less than 30 of each version of his yoyo were produced, and will be available soon from select retailers.

Doomsday – As you may or may not have heard, 12/21/12 marks the end of the Mayan calendar and many have speculated that this also marks the end of the world as we know it. TERRIBLE as this may be, YoYoFactory has decided to turn this bad news into something SO big that it may actually eclipse all of the potential up and coming tragedy. On 12/21, YoYoFactory will be releasing the Doomsday Genesis, an entirely new version of one of the most popular metal yo-yos that we have ever produced. This version of the Genesis is manufactured out of ultra high grade 7075 aluminum, making it stronger and more durable than any other Genesis ever produced. Slight design alterations yield a slightly different weight distribution, a flat face on the yo-yo rather than an axle hole, and brand new laser engravings on both halves of the yo-yo. YoYoFactory and the Mayan’s can agree on one thing: Doomsday is coming!
42.75 mm wide
56.42 mm diameter
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!
