Kyle Nations, seen previously on YoYoNews with his fantastic winning “Give me that yo-yo, eh!” entry, just hit us with two a half minutes of pure fixed axle awesomeness. It’s a great mix of springtime fun and serious skill, with some really creative stall variations and enough sideburns to give half the community facial hair envy. I’m a particular fan of the flowy combo at 1:50, check out the whole video then go outside and throw a Butterfly around.

You may have seen players from 800YOYOCLASS wearing shirts mysteriously branded with “FIST SALUD”. Today, they’re making themselves known with a four minute posse cut, featuring great tricks from Yoshinori Kawamura, Kento Muraoka, Kazuki Hayashi (THP), Daiki “Dee” Shimizu (44CLASH/RecRev), Masamitsu Yanase (800YOYOCLASS), and Daiki Tanaka (Yoyojam).
Masaya Takagi of Yoyojoker, Joseph Murphy of Hawaii, and yours truly of Duncan Crew round out the team, though we didn’t have anything in this video. Look for more Fist Salud madness as the year continues.
G-Squared is releasing their newest model, the G-Squared Triton, at select retailers on April 12th.
For this release they wanted a full-sized yoyo that played fast and stable with a comfortable, organic shape. Jacob Gross, the owner of G-Squared, personally likes incorporating grinds into his tricks, so he added the grooves in the catch zone to allow for better grind time than a bead blast finish. The wide catch zone and wide open cup are intended to make it easier to hit horizontal tricks and finger spins, and the G-Squared Triton has the G2 Stability Ring for holding spin on those long combos.

Ayumu Harada decided to put the Summit through its paces and make sure that his worked properly.
Yep. Looks like it works.
