Throw Revolution dropped a great hangout video, shot on a recent trip to Vietnam. The scene there has been growing steadily for the past few years, and it’s awesome to see more countries putting forth some amazing talent!
World YoYo Champion Marcus Koh shows off his clean, ultra-fast tricks and gives some background information on his latest bi-metal yoyo release in this new video. Always nice to get some backstory on the development of a new yoyo from a champ like Marcus!
Yoyo used is the Throw Revolution Zephyr II.
Throw Revolution has announced the Zephyr II, a bi-metal version of their mono-metal budget yoyo released last year. They’ve kept the weight down to 64 grams to hold to the current trend towards lighter yoyos, but upped the ratio of how much of that weight is concentrated in the rims. Expect the Zephyr II to throw heavy, play light, and spin for a loooong time!
Expect to see the Zephyr II at YoYoExpert.com soon. Check out specs and more photos below!
Throw Revolution Zephyr II Specs:

We’ve got a look at the newest release from World YoYo Champion Marcus Koh’s brand, Throw Revolution!
The Kaiser is a monometal yoyo made of 7075 aluminum, and designed to perform to Marcus’ exacting standards. His goal with the Kaiser was bi-metal performance in a monometal yoyo…not the easiest thing to accomplish, but we look forward to trying one and seeing how close he got. Check out Throw Revolution’s info below, along with more pics and full specs. The Kaiser is available March 14th at 8 pm SGT at the Throw Revolution store, and hits retailers soon after.
When the Kaiser was made, It was designed to bring out a Bi-metal performance in a mono-metal yo-yo. This Yo-Yo was made for the aspiring competitor, not just any competitor. But for the one who dares to be a champion.
We wanted a Yo-Yo that is able to comfortably return to your hands. This is an important aspect which is often overlooked, as it ensures that your next throw will always a good one. Specially for freestyles when you have to bind from a strong spin due to a music cue.
The Kaiser was designed with step curved Rims to rest perfectly on your hands.
The Kaiser needed to be a yo-yo that stands out. We experimented by introducing a new twist to the way its being anodized by giving it a raw finished cut around the hub of the Kaiser.
The end result was Stunning. It was a design that stood out immediately, which made the Kaiser uniquely identifiable.
With the Kaiser’s release approaching, we’re staying true to our company’s mission.
“To unleash the greatness in you, and provide the highest standards of excellence at ThrowRevolution.“
And you’ll be the first one to receive the “Revolutionary Experience”, a special 1-on-1 coaching session with Marcus Koh when you purchase a Kaiser today.

The Vertex is the first yoyo from Throw Revolution, the new company from 2011 World YoYo Champion (and first champion ever from Singapore), Marcus Koh. The Vertex is very much designed to be a competition yoyo, and is easily one of the fastest playing yoyos we’ve ever laid our hands on.
The Throw Revolution Vertex is incredibly fast, and incredibly stable. Those words get thrown around a lot when describing new yoyos, but few models earn it with the kind of ferocity the Vertex does…at times throwing the Vertex almost feels like trying to tame a wild animal. This yoyo is for experienced, serious competitors who are looking to squeeze every possible second out of their stage time. The slightly contoured V profile combined with the extraordinary weight distribution make the Vertex the perfect compliment to Throw Revolution owner Marcus Koh’s fast, technical play style and a must-have for any player looking to hit that level of speed and perfection. The distribution of weight from the stainless steel rims has clearly been well thought-out and agonized over during the design process, and the results are truly stunning.
Available in solid blue or solid red, the Vertex keeps things simple with very basic engraving. But even simple can be wonderful, and the anodizing colors seem normal at first glance, but upon closer inspection are quite tough and incredibly rich. The blue has a high amount of purple mixed in, resulting in a richness and depth that is difficult to photograph and even more difficult to describe. In person the red teeters on the edge of the same color as fresh blood, no doubt drawn from underestimating the speed of the Vertex and cranking yourself in the face. Both colors are more stunning in person.
The Throw Revolution Vertex retails for $180, and is not a casual purchase in price or in play value. The Vertex is a serious yoyo for serious competitors, and worth the investment if you’re a contest player who is chasing every possible advantage on stage. The Vertex is a beautifully made piece of equipment and while it’s expensive…it’s worth it.
