HSpin's swan song

A few people know this, but every time I sit down and look for yo-yo news, I launch three web browser applications and open 273 websites that I have collected over the last few years. Many of these pages get updates few and far between, and I was surprised to see that the HSPIN website had an update….. and now I am sad. We all knew that HSPIN was ramping down production, but this is essentially the nail in the coffin.

    Wow matt why so much hate? When I began yoyoing in 2006 ChrisK and his HSPIN brand were one of the few companies/people that I respected in the community.

    People like ChrisK (HSPIN), Steve (SPYY), Frank, all seemed like very upstanding people in the yoyoing community. Their posts in the forums were always positive despite any negativity against their products.

    I don’t know ChrisK personally so maybe you know something I don’t. He seemed very genuine to me and it will be a shame to see HSPIN exit from the yoyoing community.

    Good riddance, the ridiculous price for the Beyond Envy was a slap in the face to every hspin fan. I also love how half of the video is Chris trying to guilt us into buying his remaining stock which he’s probably going to jack up to insane prices. You brought this on yourself.
