One Drop Japan team member and tech 1A revivalist Tsukasa Takatsu recently released this video showcasing the Benchmark O and rounding up his tricks for 2014 thus far. If you’ve caught his tricks on his Instagram and wanted a closer look, this is a great jazz-fueled bucket full of inspiration. We’re huge fans of Tsukasa’s trick construction, especially the maturity of his compositions given his relatively recent arrival on the scene, but more than anything we’re totally astounded at the amount of stuff he puts out. Where does it all come from?

Ahmad Kharisma just shared this great video with us, featuring some of his friends from YoYoApartment and Team Yomega. There’s some really nice play in here…enjoy!

Monkeyfinger & G-Squared have announced a new collaborative design, named the “Co-Lab”. Based on Monkeyfinger’s Ape-X and G-Squared’s Triton, the Co-Lab will be released first at the 2014 California State YoYo Contest at an early release price of $100. Full production will be in stores shortly after, and will run $110 – $130.
Production has been delayed, and these will NOT be available for sale at California States. Here’s the word from Monkeyfinger:
Fans and Friends: While we were boxing up the new Co-Lab project, a manufacturing flaw was found that would shorten product play life. As yo-yoers ourselves, MFD and G2’s would never release a product with a known defect. Our Integrity and commitment to our fans prevents us from passing a flaw’ed yoyo to you, the community. While Chris Allen will have a few prototypes you can try at Cal States, the Co-Lab will not be for sale and the retail run will be delayed as we re-work the production phase.
