Gentry Stein has picked up a new Protegé, Luke Finnell. Here are a few words from Gentry about Luke:

 

The first time Lukes yoyoing caught my attention was last year at the 2011 Pacific Northwest Regionals. At the time he was 13 years old and had been yoyoing for only a year. The amount of professionalism and control he had over the yoyo on stage amazed me. The best part is, it was his first ever competition. Since then, I have been watching him progress through his videos and he has improved so much in such a short amount of time. Luke is going to hit the contest scene hard this year, but I am confident he will continue to bring the heat, and become a top competitor in the near future. Making yoyoing look good is one of the most important aspects of it all. There’s no question Luke knows how to do that. I am stoked to announce Luke as my protege.

There is no question, Gentry Stein is a rising star in yo-yoing. Last season he made his mark on the contest scene with multiple wins, and high places at some of the most prestigious contests in the world. In the 2012 season he plans to do even better. After his win the weekend before at PNWR, Gentry set his sights on his home states title, California Champion, and got it. We are all looking forward to seeing what he has to show at the Bay Area Classic in May.

In 2011 Gentry Stein had a big year. In his first professional season he manged top placings at some of the biggest contests in the country, along with top 3 at the World and National Championships. Not bad for being 15 years old. And 2012 is shaping up to be even better. Talking top honors at PNWR last weekend, Gentry is gunning for his state’s title, California Champion.

YoYoExpert is first to list this new yo-yo from YoYoFactory, the second signature edition of Gentry Stein.

 

“With the HUGE success of Gentry Stein and his signature yo-yo, the Super G, YoYoFactory wanted to re-think what the Super G is capable of. Shrunken down to an undersized throw, the G Funk is one of the best all around pocket yo-yos that they have ever made.

 

Almost identical in shape and dimension to its bigger brother, the Super G, the smaller diameter and lighter weight G Funk is a fundaMETAL yo-yo that can rival the best all around throws on the market. The smaller diameter changes the weight distribution so that the yo-yo is more nimble on the string and faster though the air.

 

If you like what the Super G brings to the table, you are going to love the G-Funk! This initial release features the G-Funk in three colors (Blue/Black Acid, Green Acid, Solid Red). But also available in a solid black wavelength edition with laser engraved wavelength rims!”
