Opting out of competing at this year’s PNWR yielded arguably the most fun I’ve had at a yo-yo competition
and after watching this video, we agree. Looks like PNWR was an absolute blast, and huge thanks to Keiran for putting together such a beautiful love letter to this contest.

Recess Intl. dropped a new video from Colin Beckford to tease the release of his upcoming signature model, and it looks like the quiet kid from Cleveland decided to bring the heat. I actually got the chance to try this prototype the other night, and it’s a super nice yoyo. It has that Japanese contest yoyo feel…crazy solid, spins forever, always has more spin left than you think. Good stuff! Should be available in a month or two, I’m told.
Yoyo used is the Recess Diplomat.
