PopCast #14 – Snap Tricks
The inimitable Doc Pop brings us a slew of really fun snap tricks in his latest PopCast yoyo vlog. There is a ton of great stuff in here, and snapping the string is always a fun (if slightly unpredictable) way to get something new happening in the middle of a combo. Enjoy!
Scales Podcast Ep. 5 – Save Deth
The Scales Collective is at it again with another podcast that brings an influential force in the yoyo industry to the front. Seth Peterson talks with Keiran Cooper and Patrick Canny about Save Deth, the first lifestyle brand in the yoyo industry and a huge creative force in the “mid school” period just after the Hyper YoYo boom died out.
Seth Peterson is one of the most influential yo-yo players of all time, but unlike most, it’s for more than just his tricks.
Seth led a very inspiring yo-yo movement called Save Deth, in which he had travelled with Dave Poyzer all over the United States and filmed amazing yo-yo content, whether it be at contests or just in a casual scene. On top of this, Seth’s attention to design and detail in all aspects such as clothing and content is something that lots of people worldwide learned and stemmed off of. To call him an innovator is an understatement; he is a pioneer.
