Ann Connolly is back on YouTube with another YoYoFactory product review, this one for for the controversial-ish YoYoFactory Wide Angle Shutter that looks like a bi-metal but isn’t! It’s a fun yoyo though, and Ann is always a joy to watch so dig in!
The YoYoFactory crew was in and out of PNWR, fresh off the heels of the International Toy Fair in NYC, but Ben still managed to find time to shoot enough for a sweet trick showcase video. Awesome!
Julian Chee and Polo Garbkamol drop a ton of amazing tricks in this new Team Horizon video from YoYoFactory.
Yoyo used is the YoYoFactory Marco.

Check out this episode of the Crew Racing podcast, a triathlon training podcast run by Caitlin and Drew Sapp, where they interview Gentry Stein about his yoyo practice and training regimens. Neat to hear about Gentry’s competition prep and mindset from such a different perspective!

If you’re gonna learn, learn from the best! World YoYo Champion Gentry Stein is creating some definitive, in-depth tutorials on how to be the best yoyo player you can, and here we have a great feature on doing horizontal yoyo tricks. Sweet!
Yoyo used is the YoYoFactory Shutter Wide Angle.
YoYoFactory has spent years in search of the perfect 2A looping yoyos. From the original Loop 720 to the 1080 and now the 2020, it’s been a remarkably patient game of testing and iteration until finally they’ve built what is probably the greatest looping yoyos ever made to date, by any company. In this video, they break down how the Loop 2020 works, how and why you should adjust it, and how to handle the equipment end of 2A. Once you’ve got that sorted, you can move on to the 10,000 hours of practice. You know…the fun part. 😉
(And as a bonus, here’s a video where multiple World Champion Shu Takada shows you how he sets up his Loop 2020s!)
I mean, how much better can it get!? Summer bears wonderous fruit in this incredible new video from Motion Peak Creative, featuring players from SF, YoYoFactory, and Amplified. It’s the best thing you’ll see all week, I promise, so settle in with some snacks and watch it through a few times.
Featuring Ryan Cvijanovich, Nate Dailey, Collin Ellingson, Joey Montoya, and Tal Rogers.

Congrats to Hunter Feuerstein on officially moving up to the YoYoFactory Contest Team! Check out the full statement from YoYoFactory below. Great job, Hunter!
Hunter Feuerstein graduated SHUTTER CREW and was immediately presented with the opportunity to join the YoYofactory Contest Team. Hunter is the first Graduate to be offered a spot on the Team and we proud to announce he accepted!
Hunter has been a prolific traveller this season making it out to PNWR, NWR and just this weekend he put down his best freestyle to date at MWR taking 2nd place amongst a talented field. If he were a horse we would say he is just coming into form for the big race, the race being USA nationals. We would also say he is quite small for a horse.
Congrats on the MWR result and heres to a bright future on the team!
YoYoFactory went off on another adventure! This one was a little closer to home that usual, and found Gentry Stein and Hans Van Dan Elzen road tripping to Thatcher, Arizona to meet up with one of the competitors from the recent Arizona State YoYo Contest to offer him a second chance. This video is a really sweet reminder that nearly every company in this industry is still just run by a handful of yoyo players. Hope you had a good time, Hiram!
