Alex Gallimore shows off what five years of practice can get you, and it’s pretty good! Not sure what’s better though…the tricks or those curtains. Both are pretty good. 😉

Danish yoyo player Jens Vase is crazy good, and this video has style to spare. Keep an eye on him!

I absolutely LOVE seeing things like this! Projects like this are the best bet we have for really spreading the art and sport of yoyo play, and I’m really impressed at how the Czech yoyo scene has come together to make this happen.
Spinking is very special yoyo project with simple goal. We want kids and teenagers to go out, play, socialize, create stuff and evolve. Our way how to reach this goal and get kids out of computers, out of doing nothing or doing bad things is modern yo-yoing. So we took team of international professional yoyo players and toured schools all around Czech Republic with yoyo show. We have been to over 100 schools and did more than 250 shows. We have also organized Spinking contest at the very end of our tour. What happened? How did the whole thing go? Who won? Check the video to find out 🙂
Big thanks to sponsors!!

And thanks to SPINKING team:
The Philippines are a great place to be in love with yoyos. The island country was the last stop for the toy before it came to the United States in the 1920s, and has given the world some of the most iconic yoyo demonstrators of all time. Players like Pedro Flores, Gus Somera, and Nemo Concepcion turned the yoyo from a simple toy with roots dating all the way back to ancient Greece into an icon of entrepreneurship and ingenuity.
So when a player from the Philippines as talented as Joebert Flores sends us a video, you can bet we’re going to pass it along.

Paul Dang popped up with the latest update from the One Drop machine shop, and it looks like in spite of the fact that they’re packing up everything to move to a new location they’ve been pretty busy!
A few things we can look forward to: TWO new bi-metal yoyos, a new design inspired by the Project 2, and a stack of titanium bar stock that is destined to become….something soon.
Here are screen caps of the bi-metal prototypes and the new Project 2 inspired prototype:
