Doc’s Note: WOWZA there must be some plastic fever running around or something. I can’t wait!
Yuuki Spencer had something to say about the Yeti
“Best plastic I have ever played with hands down!”
- Yuuki Spencer
The Yeti will be at BAC to try out. Seek out a CLYW player to try it.
- 58mm diameter
- 64 grams in weight
- Wing shaped – inspired by the CODE2
- Marbleized catch zone for superior grinds
- Estimated retail price $45
One Drop team members will have them at BAC this weekend. Find them if you want to try it.
You might recognize some of these faces…. maybe…. probably…..
(really darn good video)
More than three long years in the making. The Duncan Magnetude, designed by robotics engineer Zachary Lytle, features magnetic spinning sides (think hub stack ish) and in the prototypes I have seen, a magnetic counterweight. Check out the video below to see the prototype in action.
Considering BAC is this weekend, I would guess that the Magnetude will make its retail appearance.
YoYoFactory is coming back to Roseville this week and next. The team is going to be hanging out Pre and Post BAC and end the tour with a contest on June 1st.

Good song. I don’t get the masks, but overall a good song.
10/10 would listen again
The band is Evelynne, the song is called DRIFTER from their debut album Anonymity.

Jason Lee is many many things. Many many things that would normally be associated with Chuck Norris or Mt. T. Here he is being awesome all over China. You may have heard that China got a bit more awesome? That’s because Jason Lee was there.

Friday Night PRE-BAC Pizza Party!
You will FOR SURE get a new yo-yo with a retail value at $20, but also a very good shot (1 in 20) of a much more expensive yo-yo, all for only $10. Oh, and pizza also…. free pizza…. and knowing JD, Hi Chew also. If I were able to make it, I would be all over this.
FINALLY NEWS THAT IS NOT A VIDEO!!!!!
I mean, don’t get me wrong, videos are great, just the “news” side of YoYoSkills has been kind of light lately. So check this out. Jake Wiens, founder of the Kengarden, international man of kendama mastery (not a typo) has worked out a deal with premium Bay Area clothing maker and “don’t call me a consignment store” consignment store San Franpsycho . The Kengarden Store will adorn an entire wall and will be filled with kendama, yoyo, art, and other goodness. It opens THIS FRIDAY!
Facebook page for more info.
Consider this THE PLACE to be the day before BAC. A Yo-Yo and Kendama pre-contest party. I wish I could be there, but I have this pesky thing called a job so consider me there in spirit.
Nice video from the Japanese YoYoClass Tumblr
Just saw this video from Northern Spin Company which is essentially a love letter to its fans from the Canadian company. If you ever wonder what kind of love and passion goes into a yo-yo, this is a video to watch.
I thought this video was genius. Killer tricks to keep you interested, use of darkness to keep up suspense, and well edited to the song Good Times by Vanilla.
