Shu Takada‘s videos always make me pick up a pair of yoyos and start working on 2A looping tricks. And for anyone who has ever seen the damage that I do to me chest, fast, elbows, and collarbone whenever I attempt 2A, you understand just how inspired I must be to attempt what is clearly a lost cause.
Tonight at 10:00 PM EST the LOOP 1080 releases at YoYoExpert as part of Wave 2 of the YoYoFactory Champions Collection. Retail price is $23.99 each.
This highly anticipated yo-yo was designed with input from World Yo-Yo Champion Shu Takada and was already used to win the 2012 National Yo-Yo Contest by Patrick Mitchell. The Loop 1080 has improved weight distribution and a fully centered adjustment mechanism, giving it a completely different feel and improved performance from the much-vaunted (and highly impressive) Loop 900.
YoYoFactory seems to have finally cracked the secret of the perfect looping yoyo without requiring modification…how many world and national titles do you think the Loop 1080 will bring in 2013?
