:captured: – Eternal Throw VICTORY

Published by:

(happy birthday Victoria)

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.

Calypso :captured:

Quoting YoYoWiki

The Calypso is a wooden yo-yo with a fixed metal axle made by Doble. It was designed for long sleep times. It previously held a world record for fixed axle sleep time at 63 seconds

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.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programing

PRODUCT REVIEW | The Omnicron X by 3yo3

Published by:

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.

A very special :captured: for Josh Yee and all you Bronies

Published by:

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.

:Captured: – The Aoda Immortal / Eternal Star

Published by:

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
