Check out the latest peek into the Japan scene from Ryosuke Kawamura, featuring Arata Imai! Arata is a solid 1A and 2A player (something we don’t see a whole lot of these days) and he’s got some really clean tricks. Thanks, Ryosuke!
Shinji Saito, the 13x World YoYo Champion, showed off a little at the Something World contest held recently in Korea. Check out his demo…crazy to think he can just throw something this dense with tricks right off the cuff with little to no prep. Amazing.
Yoyos used are the Something LP.
2013 South Japan YoYo Contest winner Tomoyuki Kaneko shows off the LP, the new looping yoyos by Hiroyuki Suzuki’s brand sOMEThING.
We don’t see enough 2A! But it’s great to see companies like sOMEThING releasing loopers…seems like we have the best selection of quality looping yoyos now than ever before.
So apparently, the new looping yoyo by sOMEThING has the added mojo of every single one being hand-assembled by 4x World YoYo Champion and sOMEThING owner, Hiroyuki Suzuki.
Still no specs/price/release date that we’ve been able to find, but at least we know quality control won’t be a problem!
Thanks to YoYo Store Rewind for specs, and to Christian for the tip!

YoYoAddict.com has dropped pics and more info on their forthcoming looping yoyo. Interesting to see smaller companies offering loopers, especially considering the small size of the 2A player base these days. Maybe this influx of new models will increase the general interest in the division?
Pics and awkwardly translated info below!
The most up-to-date version of the prototype of the looping yo-yo “LP” which sOMEThING by YoYoAddict came to publish the often test video. To a senior class of contestants from looping beginner, LP yo that target a wide range of players. Rather than the shape of a simple “child”, to create a convex part also accelerator around spacer POM Material completed repeated trial many times, was to reduce the loss of sleep and float the bearing. The bearings are exposed sufficiently in a state where the spacer is set.
Thought to be unnecessary gap adjustment significant in looping yo-yo, and the only possible gap adjustment of the minimum required some
made up into.
There is no need to tighten Dari force, the simplicity that can be state only the best replacement of the string and oil also basically appealing.
Body shape is straight general, response and Star burst. The simple design of world standard.
Will This is the final version almost, through the adjustment of color and design, will be released.
