This is the awesome new yo-yo from Eternal Throw. The Victory drops today and a bunch of online stores! It is scheduled for review later this year, but I will go ahead and say that if you can get a hold of one, you should jump at it.
So Drew Tetz and Blake Freemen a little while back, went on the Midwest Tour. This is a video that I made from the tour stops I was able to go to. Enjoy.
I got this from the one and only Doc Pop. I consider to to my one of the jewels of my collection. My personal sleeper record on it is 48 seconds.
- Diameter – 51.2
- Width – 39.5
- Weight – 66.7 Grams
Gap width(mm): 4.75
Bearing Size (Inside x Outside x Width): .250 x .500 x .187 in
Stock Response System: C3yoyodesign Silicone pads
A-Freaking-Mazing new throw from CLYW. The Chief is set for review in January but take my word and don’t wait. You can get one very soon.
These jacks were in the box of wonder that DocPop gave me when I visited him in last week. I learned tonight that it is very hard to capture that bright orange without blasting out the color.
If you like pictures, and happen to like my pictures, then I think you will like the enclosed 122 images taken during the week I was in San Francisco.
If not, then pretend you never saw this post.
And now back to our regularly scheduled programing
Just got a new 1.8 lens and am playing around with it. Felt like a :captured: moment
Landon Balk is a wizard. I can imagine his surprise when his invitation from Yogwarts, School of Yo-Yo Wizardry arrived that fateful day. The joy he must have felt when assigned to Modffindor must have been a delight to witness. The story of his victory over Jugglemort (the evil lord of magical juggling) is the stuff of legends….. Alright, I think I stretched that out long enough. Bottom line is that Landon Balk does amazing work and his recent first place win in the Modding contest at Worlds is a testament to that. His latest release is the Omnicron X, a metal anodized variation of the acrylic Omnicron. The Omnicron X is a co-design between Landon Balk and 3yo3 team member CJ Atkinson. It is CJ’s signature yo-yo.
YoYoJam is releasing this yo-yo soon. It is the Cerberus and it is one of the largest yo-yo YoYoJam has released that wasn’t designed for 4a.
* approximate* specs. Will post actual specs when I get them. This is Mark Yoshihiro “Yoshi” Mikamoto’s Signature yo-yo.
Weight – 68 grams
Diameter – 60 mm
Width – 44 mm
Disclamer: This edition of :captured: is purely for fun, with zero artistic merit, and zero value except for people to roll their eyes at. Specifically it is a joke for my friend Josh Yee. If you want SRSNEWSONLYABOUTMYYOYOS then go ahead and skip to the next post.
Yes, I am still reviewing this monster this weekend, but I got a sudden string of inspiration with the very un-June like weather we are having here in Nor Cal.
More pictures after the jump
I have heard this yo-yo called both the Immortal Star and the Eternal Star. Whatever it is, it is now :captured:
I also learned that it is not a spintop. It just… transforms.
Extremely early feedback. It plays better without the metal stacks. The Stacks are held on with screws, which means you need a tool to attach and detach them. As a ball it is essentially a giant keychain.
- Scheduled for a review in March
This was a gift from Mo. I sold tons of these in 1998-99, but never owned one myself. Thanks Mo. Vintage style video to come in the future.
Set for review early February.
