Ann Connolly plays yo-yo. she plays with every yo-yo. She rarely competes with the same yo-yo in back to back contests yet some people howl ‘ANN NEEDS ‘a’ SIGNATURE YO-YO’. We can do better than that. Ann can have any yo-yo, whenever she wants.

This collection FINALLY fills her desire for more PURPLE. The ONEstar comes stock with a Center Track bearing as does the SHUTTER (which is stunning in both photos and person).

Enjoy!

Paolo is treated like a seasoned veteran at contests but it needs to remembered he is still only 16 and the way he steps up every contest he has it all in front of him.
