Gentry Stein hits the road again!

While tour 1 followed a pretty set format we wanted to switch up the format of tour 2.

There are only 3 stops:
Hong Kong
And Mystery destination.

…and we depart THIS SATURDAY.

Hong Kong (5-7th)
In Hong Kong Gentry won’t be doing a performance, but hosting an underground yo-yo battle! If you are interested in attending let us know ( and we will message you the location 48hrs before the event. The battle will be a ‘best trick contest’ no combos. Gentry’s judging decision is final. There will be one winner.

In Guangzhou Gentry will be at the Toy Fair 8-10th.

April 11.
The final stop is a mystery…. We searched out existing yoyo events in Asia, picked one and will just turn up!

This all starts soon! Follow the action on !

Available for a limited time the REGEN is a precision machined Plastic version of Gentry Steins first signature yoyo the SUPER G. The Extreme stepped profile of the Super G lends itself fantastically to the material with loads of rim weight for unabated performance. The plastic type is a self lubricating polymer which offers not only a great feel but removes the chance of unwelcome anodize scratches like on your other precision machined yo-yos.

An essential piece for any player facing urban challenges daily.

Gentry Stein, 18yo of Chico California is the 2014 World YoYo Champion defeating all comers in the premier 1A division at the World Yoyo Contest held in Prague Czech Republic. Seeded to semi finals as USA National Champion Gentry took first place in the semi finals  and again in the finals in front of a packed house at the Archa Theatre in an atmosphere more like a rock concert than a yoyo contest. Second place went to Takeshi Matsuura of Japan, 3rd Iori Yamaki of Japan and 4th to Gentrys’ teammate Paul Kerbel of Mexico.

To say Gentry Stein has worked hard for this National title is an understatement. He has risen through the ranks of competitive yo-yoing in short order. He’s had his share of successes and failures. He’s dismissed the haters and showed what determination really means. As a local from Chico, this win makes it all the sweeter. In front of friends, family, Factory and fans he took home top honors and after years of being so close, finally captured the US National Champion title. Congratulations Gentry, from all of us at YoYoFactory.

Gentry Stein has not done it all. He doesn’t have a room full of trophies. He doesn’t have a National title. This is what keeps him the hungriest, most committed yoyo player on the planet. His tricks and freestyles are on point, with undoubtable style. His day just hasn’t come yet…but when it does, he will be ready.


Introducing the Shutter, Gentry’s third signature release designed specifically to be there when his day comes. Designed from the ground up, the Shutter features an inner foil designed to achieve a weight distribution that offers power, speed, and control through long technical combinations and flashy performances. It also offers unique finger spin opportunities on both inner faces as well as a central and outer ring grind capabilities.
It takes more than a great yoyo to be a champion, but a great yo-yo is something every champion needs.
