Every second of this video is pure gold. Congrats to Hiroyuki on his appearance, and on his future career as a Korean pop star!

The ANGLAM CC is the new signature edition produced together under Hiroyuki Suzuki’s brand sOMEThING and their new team member the amazing Christopher Chia. Christopher took the ANGLAM to a new level by modifying the overall shape and changing the weight distribution to increase playability.
The ANGLAM CC is a mid sized 6061 aluminum yo-yo that fits wonderfully in the hand and just feels like a perfect. Christopher took the ANGLAM to a new level by modifying the overall shape and changing the weight distribution to increase playability. With an all new weight ring system made from a secret heavy metal that not only makes the yoyo cheaper in price but doesn’t lose any play in the process.
ANGLAM CC is equipped with a large CBC Center Trac Bearing and 19mm slim pads for tight binds. Features ANGLAM logo engraved on both sides as well as Christopher Chia’s signature right below it.
Frizzy hair, members only jackets, shoulder pads and of course leg warmers, all the awesome fashions of the 80’s are back and printed in living color on the new Madhouse RAD.
This Extremely loud looking yoyo comes in perfect examples of the 80’s era, with radical cheetah print and heavy metal plaid. This is the look that hair bands would die to have on their set and it plays better than one of their finely tuned guitars. With a smoothed outer soda blasted surface for those rocking grinds and a polished center giving it a glamorous look, this yo-yo bring the 80’s back to life.
For just 19.99 the Duncan Flipside is worth getting excited for. Go responsive to unresponsive with just a flip!
Includes a KONKAVE Bearing and patent pending flippable spacers to switch to a small bearing at ease!
Huge thanks to our sponsor YoYoExpert.com, your one-stop shop for yoyos, parts, and accessories.
Korean player Cha Dam Dae tears it up in this new video for sOMETHING. His style still seems really young and underdeveloped, but he’s already got a tremendous amount of skill. Plus, he leads off with a frontstyle combo…which hardly anyone does anymore.
Look out for great things from Cha Dam Dae!
This video was just shared to me by Hiroyuki Suzuki (World Champion) and owner of sOMEThING.
It feature Amane Okubo who is just 13 years old! Love to see this kind of talent in yo-yoing at such a young age!
Using the sOMEThING Angle.
sOMEThING dropped the full-length version of its promo video for the new ANGLAM Ver. CC signature model they are produced for Christopher Chia. It’s available now at YoYoAddict for $209.
2011 AP Champion and 2012 3rd Place World Champion Christopher Chia’s new signature model ANGLAM Ver. CC by sOMEThING is releasing this year, and sOMEThING just dropped this teaser video to hype it up.
I’d like to think that everyone who gets a signature model from sOMEThING also gets brightly colored plastic sunglasses that they are required to wear while playing, but I’m sure Christoper just brought his own.
And here is Christopher’s special performance freestyle at the 2012 Malaysian YoYo Championship, in case you forgot how awesome he is.
