The yo-yo internet world is a buzz after YoYoFactory released a statement this morning via Facebook and Instagram:
Apparently releasing tonight at 6:00 PM EST via YoYoExpert is the ‘Soul Doubt‘ – signature yo-yo of Daniel ‘Zammy’ Ickler? April Fools or the real thing? Time will tell.
The yo-yo is revealed and is for a great cause too!
Why you might ask? Is this yo-yo just an elaborate April Fools Joke?! Absolutely not! The idea here is a simple one. Zammy is an amazing player with a big heart. In the past he has run the Yoyodrive raising money during the holiday season. YoYoFactory and Zammy decided what better then produce a limited yo-yo in his honor and help support a good cause.
Only TEN Soul Doubt have been made available for sale at $50 (each are individually numbered) and ALL proceeds (that is $500 total) are being donated to a charity that is close to Zammy’s heart. The Children’s Miracle Network. Zammy plans to personally hand deliver the check himself at a hospital in his area!
Zammy also released a new video today showing new tricks and his entrance back into the world of yo-yoing after a recent break.
Zammy presents: Daniel Ickler-2013
So, Its April of 2013 ( I uploaded this early and had it on private) and its been about two months since I left my sponsor of Onedrop. After that, some bad things went down that caused me to take a break from the internet (try to). Well, I’m back now. and I am here to begin rebuilding allover again.
For starters, I did a few things differently for this video. First I self titled to my real name, something that most yoyoers generally do not know. Secondly, when you are watching you may notice no trick titles. I decided against putting them in this since I hear it distracts people. I still name my tricks, as I have uploaded them all singly on my alt youtube for people to preview.
Also featured within the video is the new Toxic Strings “Zype” which is my signature yoyo string developed for 1a and Moebius in mind. Will be available in the near future!
