Singapore legend Fajar Siddiq dropped a new video! Fajar made his name in the Singapore yoyo scene for being equal parts talented and insane, and it’s great to see him still throwing after more than 15 years in the game.
Singapore yoyo legend Lim Aik Hwee turned in a solid offstring demo at the recent China YoYo Corporation Championship (China has like four “national championships”, it’s a long story). Great work!

C3yoyodesign first Signature design for the 4A Legend Rei Iwakura – “Flawless”!!!
“Flawless” is created by Rei and C3yoyodesign together from drawing, prototyping to production. Thanks to the Internet, we kept updating all the progress to Rei during whole process.
Using Neo Solar as blueprint, “Flawless” inherit the comfortable shape and response system from Neo Solar, also adding the personal characteristic of Rei’s unique style.
During the first prototype(90grams), we almost hit the jackpot. But after spending weeks for testing, we decided to fine tune by adding weight to 103grams. The production version provide a smoother and higher stability on either single yoyo or Soloham play. With a higher mass, it perform a better circular trajectory while playing with single yoyo and also spins more powerful. What’s more, we updated the hubs design for better fingerspin control!
“Flawless” combined all the experience we got from previous 4A design and Rei ‘s opinion about his dream design. We can’t wait to see the Rei’s “Flawless” freestyle in Japan National Yoyo Contest 2015!!!
“Flawless” have thin + thick spacer combination installed as factory spec and come with glittering sticker for decoration!!!
