Japan Technology has released a new “Pearl Collection” version of their popular Ashiru Kamui Light offstring yoyo, and with it comes this great video of Atsushi Takeuchi showing off the new model. Why don’t we see more offstring videos?
Introducing GAIA, the signature offstring design for 3X Korea Champion Jeon Ji Kwan!
When we first asked Jeon Ji Kwan about his dream 4A design, he mentioned “speed, power spin, floating time, quick regen, and finger spin”. After number of prototypes to fit his requirements, he proved GAIA is his dream design by capturing his 3rd Korea Championship!
There will be a limited pre-production release of the C3YoYoDesign Gaia at Japan Nationals and Malaysia Nationals this weekend.

Slusny.net just dropped a really fun video to promote the YoYo Empire Nimbus offstring yoyo, featuring Petr Kavka and Zdenek Hybl.
Jeon Ji Hwan, from the South Korean C3YoYoDesign team, just won the 4A division at the 2013 Korean National YoYo Championships…and right before the contest, C3YoYoDesign dropped this year-old video of him from their archives.
And today we got a brand new video from Jeon! It’s great to be able to see his progression as a player both in tricks and style.
Tomohiko Zanka dropped this great offstring video…some really interesting concepts in here, and he pulls them off well.
SpinGear just tweeted about this new offstring yoyo by World Champion Tsubasa Onishi. Looks…well, it looks a lot like another huge offstring yoyo for serious competitors. That style of play doesn’t really lend itself to a lot of variety in the equipment. I mean, you can shoot for different colors but even then….you’re really kinda stuck with delrin because there just isn’t enough demand to justify molding versus machining. But according to Spin Gear, there will be additional weight kits for this yoyo available later, so that’s pretty cool.
Width: 53.8 – 55.0 mm (depending on gap adjustment)
Response: YYF Slim Pad
And really, what announcement about a Japanese yoyo would be complete without a hilariously confusing description, courtesy of Google Translate:
Model with respect to the shape of the creative ingenuity that was used to Kamui Onishi players prefer. It is the model that brought, was realized in the factory planning Onishi players themselves are produced in domestic. Endorsement is uncompromised performance ease of use that made the prototype himself until satisfactory.
Pick one up at SpinGear, and while you’re there you should get some Hyper YoYo stuff. Because seriously, it’s all awesome.
