YoYoFactory is honored to work with a great partner in Bandai Japan. On the 1st weekend of April we tagged along to their Hyper YoYo Event in Tokyo. Winners of regional contests all met off to battle in a FACE OFF contest where teams draw cards from a deck which name tricks. The players then choose which difficulty they will attempt, the harder for more points. After 3 draws/tricks there is a winner.

 

 

The final battle saw two local teams match up, although there were some close battles including a tied semi final with the team from Hokaido along the way. The final was tense with the excited winners taking home a huge case of special edition Hyper YoYos.

 

 

As well as the competitors the Top Spinner Pros were on hand to perform and many Japanese YoYo Champions came along to watch including World Champions Shaqler,  Shinya Kido, Hironori Mii and Jun Aramaki from REWIND, Taka from SpinGear, Eiji Okuyama and Reiki from YoYoFactory, the whole 44Clash crew plus a visitor from America, Bob Maloney from Bird in Hand Chico, the home of the USA National YoYo Contest.

What did you do for Spring Break? It probably didn’t beat Luke and Jack’s! During their Spring Break trip to Arizona they stopped by to hang out at the Factory. The brothers hail from Portland OR, and both have a passion for yo-yo.

 

 

Luke is one of our new additions to the Protegé Team, under the guide of Gentry Stein. He’s fast becoming one of the most promising up and comers in the Northwest. Winning top place in his region, he’s got a seed to Nationals later this year.

 

 

We always like to do special stuff for our team members. To commemorate Luke’s visit, we decided to make a custom yo-yo for him

 

 

There’s no way Jack will get this confused with one of his. Luke got to pick his model and color, coming out with this awesome Genesis.

 

 

We had a great time hanging out with Luke and Jack. Thanks for stopping by!
