CLYW has announced the first retail release of the re-designed Borealis, the signature yoyo of 2015 World YoYo Champion Zach Gormley. While a small pre-release was available at the 2016 World YoYo Contest in Iceland, this is the first full release of this re-designed version of the Borealis. Check out CLYW’s official release below:
The Borealis is the return top that helped Zach Gormley become the 2015 World YoYo Champion, and now it’s even better!
This modified organic shaped return top has quickly become a favorite of players all over the world, and we’ve worked with Zach to adapt the Borealis to better suit his ever changing style. As his tricks have become even more challenging and acrobatic, so must the Borealis change to keep up with his needs. We’ve widened the catch zone a bit and created slightly more of a V-shape to the profile, and moved some weight from the center to the rim for increases stability. The changes sound small on paper, but make a huge difference on the string.
This new Borealis is ideal for fans of the original who are hoping for a little more power and stability…or just anyone looking for a competition-friendly return top with a more comfortable profile.
This run of Borealis ships with a Center Trac bearing.
Available Thursday, December 14th at YoYoExpert.com. Check out full specs and more pics below!

World YoYo Champion Marcus Koh gives us a clean 1-throw video with the Kaiser, the latest release from his company Throw Revolution. Something I noticed that I wasn’t expecting…that silver ring that’s engraved in the cup? It actually pops more than you would expect while the yoyo is in motion. I kept catching little flashes off it while he was playing, and the effect was unexpected and interesting. Nice work, Marcus!
Yoyo used is the Throw Revolution Kaiser.
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.

YoYoFactory has released their limited titanium version of fan-favorite yoyo, the Shutter and it’s pretty fantastic. It plays similar to the original, but with it’s own unique feel and of course that amazing *ting* that you can only get from titanium. And sparks, lots of sparks.
And such an epic Shutter release of course means we get some new video from Gentry, which is always a good thing. Check out the champ in action!

Right before the World YoYo Contest, our friends at C3yoyodesign dropped a new promo video for Shion Araya’s signature model, the Radius. Great timing, huh? Shion Araya went on to win the 1A Division at the World YoYo Contest with that yoyo, and now is a great time to check out this crazy good promo video. And you might as well check out his winning freestyle again, while you’re here. 😉
