In 2003 YoYoFactory released its first yo-yo the FAST 201. The first day release happened simultaneously in Arizona and at the USA National YoYo Contest.
I remember the day pretty vividly, it was a big deal. i can remember explaining the new yo-yo and the concept behind the company to one of the national yo-yo masters who was shopping for a souvenir yoyo for the contest. He politely put the yoyo down and bought something else. it was a disheartening moment until this little kid who had overheard the explanation asked to take a look at it and bought the yo-yo.
That kid went on to win that contest for years later and here, a decade on, we are proud to announce he is joining our team.
