Zammy x YYF x YYE Collab – You know, for kids!

Published by:


So earlier today, YoYoFactory posted this on their Facebook page

Which, if you know the history of the people involved seemed very very unlikely. Quickly dismissed as an April fools joke, YoYoExpert then chimed in with promises of a ZammyxYYF collab drop, complete with countdown timer. As the day went on, it was clear that Zammy, YYE, and YYF were up to something, but what that would be was still unclear. At 6pm EST, the countdown ended and the mystery was revealed.

The signature yo-yo of Daniel “Zammy” Ickler has arrived in the form of the ‘Soul Doubt’! A very limited and exclusive (one time only) version of the Dv888 for a cause!

Why you might ask? Is this yo-yo just an elaborate April Fools Joke?! Absolutely not! The idea here is a simple one. Zammy is an amazing player with a big heart. In the past he has run the Yoyodrive raising money during the holiday season. YoYoFactory and Zammy decided what better then produce a limited yo-yo in his honor and help support a good cause.

Only TEN Soul Doubt have been made available for sale at $50 (each are individually numbered) and ALL proceeds (that is $500 total) are being donated to a charity that is close to Zammy’s heart. The Children’s Miracle Network. Zammy plans to personally hand deliver the check himself at a hospital in his area!

This custom Dv888 features the awesome Soul Doubt logo engraving, Zammy signature, and his ‘~Z’ logo on the rim.

This is all real and proof that we live in an amazing community of people doing good things with what they love.Back OrderYYF_SOULDOUBT

10 pieces, extremly limited, and 100% going to a needy charity. Good on you guys. A great “Anit Joke” on a very fun day. YoYoFactory, YoYoExpert, and Zammy, my hat goes off to you. This is will be $500 to a charity that really needs it.

I vote Yoshi and Bryan for trick of the year. Yo-yo meets Kendama at the end. Say whaaaaat?

Doc’s edit:
Gabe from Sector-Y fame and YoYoExpert joined forces to create an amazing Contest video. YoYoExpert was a Gold level sponsor at Cal States, which gave them the opportunity to make a contest yo-yo which they did in the way of the YoYoFactory 2.0. You can get the Cal States YYF 2.0 at YoYoxpert right now! Bonus, it features the artwork of Jason Week!

YoYoSkills.com Birthday – Announcement 1

Published by:

As many of you know, YoYoSkills.com turns 2 on August 20th.  I am celebrating this by offering a contest to all my readers.  Over the last two years, YoYoSkills.com has grown and exceeded all my expectations I could ever have had for this little project. Right now we range from 13,000 -18,000 page views A DAY which is around half a million views a month!  YoYoSkills.com could have never grown this big without the support of the readers, stores, and manufactures and it humbles me to see my project take off the way it has.  To say Thank You, I have decided to hold a “Twitter Based” contest.

So all that you already knew….  Todays announcement concerns the prizes.  Duncan, YoYoJam, OneDrop, 3yo3, and YoYoExpert have all pledged to put an item into the prize basket.  It is possible that more companies will join this celebration.  Early estimates at this point have the prize pool to over $300 in yoyo goods.  A slight change also.  You may now enter this contest as many times as you like.  That is  to say, once you follow YoYoSkills on Twitter, every time you retweet the contest message below you increase your odds of winning the prize box.

All you have to do is Follow yoyoskills on Twitter at twitter.com/YoYoSkills and retweet this message AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT:

YOU MUST BE FOLLOWING ME ON TWITTER TO WIN.

Product Review – Loop 900 by Josh Yee

Published by:


Thats right, I outsourced this review to the extremly talented Josh “Jayyo” Yee. I havent spent alot of time looping seriously in almost 10 years, but I am slowy working my way back using my pair of white Loop 900′s and Joe Harris’s instructional DVD. I wanted to get the Loop 900′s reviewed, but my 2a level of experiance is not at a level that I feel I can appropriatly provide feedback so I defered to Josh who is arguably, one of the best 2a players not currently sponsored by a company. In this case, I purchased an extra pair of Loop 900′s for Josh when they dropped at YoYoExpert. He played them for a week, and gave me a write up. I present YoYoSkills.com’s first associate reivew, the Loop 900′s by Josh Yee.

Discounted CLYW Bassalopes at YoYoExpert

Published by:

Photos by Natasha Paterson

These yoyos will be available at YoYoExpert and our store for $90each, but only the ice blue ones will be available at YoYoExpert.  The first launch will be at our store starting tonight at 11pm mountain standard time.

Unfortunately there is a small issue with the Bassalopes we received with this run.  Some of you may have noticed that there was a bit of a price drop.  It’s due to a small tiny dent that was created by the machining process.  It does not affect play and you really have to look hard to find them.  We figured that this definitely deserves a price break though.  See circled area in the photo below.   The mark is in the same place on each half, with only one per half.

YoYoExpert and CLYW hooking us up!  I don’t know about you, but that tiny fleck is not enough to keep me away.

New YYF Plastics dropping first at YoYoExpert!

Published by:

This Weekend, at YoYoExpert first!

From the YoYoExpert Forum:

The Pocket Change
A reminder that yo-yoing is fun.  Unresponsive yo-yo at a great price and compatible with the YoYoFactory Offstring yo-yo

Second:
Die-Nasty
Paying homage to the father of 5A Mr Steve Brown the Die Nasty features a solid plastic lens, tips the scale at 66.6gm and is 98% rock and roll. The other 2% dances in a tutu.

And last but certainly not least:
The Counter Attack!
Built off a Grind Machine body with precision metal weight rings added like rocket packs on a roller skating coyote.

YYF Ocho 8 Ocho – “Classic 888″ hits YoYoExpert.com

Published by:

The first chance to get this classic rendition of the 888 is over at YoYoExpert.com

Might come to other stores soon, but as far as I can tell, YoYoExpert is the first.

129.99, 24 left at this time.   As far as I am considered, the Ocho is one of the best 888 colorway ever released.  It is also the 2007 888 design (also the best 888 design IMHO) and is also the 2 time Mexican  National Champion Paul Kerbel Signature Edition.
