Duncan Toys is rolling out a new delrin offstring yoyo for 8x Philippines National Champion Sean Perez! FINALLY! Check out this video from Sean featuring some of his favorite tricks, and check out pics and specs of the Pandamonium below. Available soon at YoYoExpert.com.
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 CLYW Dune is the new monometal signature yoyo for team member Anthony Rojas.
The CLYW Dune is CLYW’s first signature yoyo for team member Anthony Rojas, and it’s a noticeable departure from CLYW’s usual releases. Weighing in at 68 grams, it’s a full 2 grams heavier than most CLYW monometals and the difference in play is noticeable. The added weight makes the Dune considerably more stable, something that’s required for Anthony’s long combos, huge body moves, and big counterweight tricks. The Dune throws heavy but plays light and incredibly fast. For many people, they’ll find the Dune to be possibly the fastest playing monometal in CLYW’s line-up, and the extra weight lets it muscle through tricks that would slow down plenty of other yoyos. The Dune is definitely one of CLYW’s most powerful yoyo releases to date, and a great competition yoyo.
The CLYW Dune takes a visual clue from the Pool Party Banana Hammock, and for good reason…the B-Ham was originally designed by CLYW owner Chris Mikulin as a test to see if he could design a yoyo totally blind that would work for Anthony’s play style. The final version of the Dune and B-Ham are vastly different, but the visual similarities in the profile are noticeable. The inner cup of the Dune features loads of curves and bulges, giving it a unique look. The combination of a slightly domed center with the shortened hub and the curved out details lets the Dune take heavy visual cues from actual sand dunes, which is a nice touch. Available in 6 colors to start, including Sand (shown), the first Dune release should have something for everyone.
The CLYW Dune retails for $85 – $95 (depending on colorway), the same as all of CLYW’s current line-up of monometal yoyos. Not quite cheap enough to be an impulse buy, but it’s a nice splurge for a casual player and still plenty affordable for any serious competitor looking for a new contest yoyo and a few backups. For the performance the Dune seems to be worth the price, and the quality of the machining and anodizing are great.
CLYW Dune is available now at YoYoExpert.com.

CLYW dropped photos and specs of the Kayak, giving us our first full look at the new signature model for 2x World YoYo Champion and generally amazing yoyo player, Yuuki Spencer.
The Kayak borrows from the original Chief design, which is generally considered the “flagship” yoyo of the CLYW brand, with its unique double-rim design. The body shape is classic CLYW, but the addition of a fingerspin hub definitely brings a more recent feature, something we’ve previously only seen from them in the Compass.
The release date for the Kayak is February 2nd, 2017. Check out specs and more photos below!
Diameter – 55.6 mm
Width – 43.6 mm
Weight – 66.5 grams
Bearing – Pixel Bearing
Response – Snow Tires
MSRP – $85 – $90
YoYoBrothers Heritage Specs:
Diameter: 55 mm
Width: 43.5 mm
Weight: 67 grams
Response: 19mm pad
Bearing: Size C (.250 x .500 x .187)
The YoYoBrothers Heritage is the first ever release from yoyo collector and contest organizer Matthew Wright.
The Heritage is a zippy yoyo, great for speed combos and horizontal play, with a ton of concentrated rim weight. The Heritage shape combines organic curves with an open catch zone and perfect width. The distribution of weight makes for a very versatile and stable yo-yo with a speedy, long lasting spin that handles fast directional changes with ease. Whether you’re playing relaxed, patiently forming new tricks, or blazing through contest freestyles, this yo-yo is built to perform on every occasion!
The YoYoBrothers Heritage is available in limited quantities in four colorways; three signature editions for the YoYoBrothers sponsored players, and a special edition for YoYoExpert. The colorways are a nice spread of finish styles, which makes it easy for anyone to find a colorway that jumps out at them. The anodizing is really well done, and the colors are crisp.
The YoYoBrothers Heritage is a collector’s piece available in very limited quantities, so the $110 retail is pretty reasonable for what is sure to be a rare throw. The performance is definitely competition quality, so the price is worth it for a yoyo that rides the line between function and collectibility.
The YoYoBrothers Heritage is available at 8:00 PM EST – Wednesday – December 28th, 2016, at YoYoExpert.com.

CLYW has unveiled The Gorge, a new oversized bi-metal yoyo dropping tonight (surprise!) only at YoYoExpert.com. Designed by CLYW owner Chris Mikulin, the Gorge is a fat, fun, throwback yoyo meant to be a casual throw that can still hit anything you want. A blend of performance and laid-back style makes the Gorge just stupidly fun and super addictive. Once you get one of these, the chances are good it’s going to become a daily carry. Check out the CLYW description & specs below, and snag one at YoYoExpert.com tonight at 10 pm EST.
Who wants to kick it old school?
The Gorge is a powerful, long-spinning throwback to the days of return top design when walls were high, profiles were round, and bi-metal designs were scarce. This is exactly the sort of return top that CLYW owner Chris Mikulin absolutely loved when he was first starting out, and now he’s created one with his own style and design sensibilities.
The Gorge is an oversized return top with a round, narrow profile. It feels amazing in your hand, spins as long as you want it to, and will quickly become your new go-to throw.

YoYoFactory player Ann Connolly brings us another yoyo review from her YouTube channel, this one for the Basecamp Sherpa!
This new slimline yoyo from the Basecamp (CLYW x YoYoFactory) line ships responsive but comes with a longer axle and Center Trac™ bearing for unresponsive play. It’s also got aluminum caps and a fully hollow body design, and it feels like nothing else in your hands.
Basecamp, the ongoing collaboration between CLYW and YoYoFactory, has revealed its next release!
The Sherpa replaces the Moonshine in their product line while also serving as a noticeable evolution of the design. The Sherpa is still a slimline, reponsive metal yoyo, but now with metal caps that give it a completely different look and feel from anything else on the market. The Sherpa ships responsive, but with an included longer axle and CT bearing for unresponsive play.
Plus, it’s a responsive yoyo with a fingerspin dimple. Get brave, y’all.
