So there I was, listening to YoYoRadio and caught the interview with Chris Sullivan from Yomega. I have to say that I am pretty impressed. Yomega has narrowed their product line, they have new corporate leadership, and have plans to revitalize their representation in the yoyo world. I also heard hints that they have new products that could compete in the higher end yo-yo line.
Honestly, The boom of the late 90’s was amazing and Yomega had a lot to do with that. I am not saying that Yomega did it by themselves, or that Yomega is the key to making it happen again. BUT combine their market presence power with YoYoFactory and Duncan and we are set up with a great product base that will be available in the mass market. They are starting fresh, and sponsoring contests.
Note to Yomega. To win my heart again, start using the standard C-Size bearing size.. please *blinks and toes floor*
So what say you guys? Do you think we can forgive Yomega and welcome them back with welcome arms?
