Shu had an outstanding Contest Season last year. The pinnacle of it was his World Championship win in 2A, and also the release of his highly anticipated signature Loop 1080. Getting in some stage time before Japan Nationals, and Worlds. Looking good!

If you fall down, get up and keep going. World Champion Shu Takada is a great example of this. At Central Japan last weekend he was poised to take the top spot and get his seed to finals at Nationals. But, with one little variable his signature move sent him tumbling. But it didn’t phase him and he kept going hard with the most amazing 2A routine we’ve seen since his World winning routine last August.

After Shu Takada dominated the 2012 World Yo-Yo Contest with the YoYoFactory Loop900, we sat him down and started working on ways to improve the Loop900 design. The adjustment mechanism was improved and moved from being off centered to the very center of the yo-yo halve. The plastic spacers were resized and slightly re-designed and the weight and shape were very slightly altered. The result of all of these changes yielded an entirely new yo-yo that proved its worth by winning the USA National Yo-Yo Contest on production prototypes! Whether you are a top level 2A player looking for the best looping yo-yo or a beginner looking to take your looping skills to the next level, the Loop1080 has a setting for you.

Busy First day at the 2012 Japan Nationals. With a huge crowd and staggering skill level, this year is sure to go down as one of the best in years. Good thin YoYoFactory is here to keep you up to date on all the products, scores and players!

 

 

First of, YoYoFactory has teamed up with Spin Gear for some great collaborative products. Heres the crowd waiting for the YYFxSG Accessories Pack. New t-shirt, key chain, hand towel (to dry your hands before performing), multi tool, OneStar, all in a custom YoYoFactory tote bag!

 

 

Speaking of exclusive. Here is one of the first full shots of the new Hiroyuki “Mickey” Suzuki x YoYoFactory Champion’s Collection yo-yo. Full sized, wide, and ready for anything you or the multi-time World Champion can throw at it.

 

 

As part of the celebration, YoYoFactory brought along another player with a signature model coming in the Champion’s Collection: Alex Garcia. Alex has been doing a lot of great promotion in Hawaii with his YoYoFactory808 club. Soon, he’ll have his own signature looping yo-yo, the Loop808, to show off. Pre-Release at Japan Nationals.

 

 

One of YoYoFactory’s own, Reiki Sekiya, threw down an amazing prelim freestyle. Only points away from the cut off to finals, Reiki still had an amazing freestyle. Showing off skills that will definitely take him to finals in the future.

 

 

 

And to round out the first day, Shu placed 1st in 2A prelims. His control is undeniable. We can’t wait to see what he’s got planned for finals.

 

Stay tuned to the YoYoFactory Blog, and the YoYoFactory Facebook Page for more updates, videos and pictures for this years Japan Nationals!

Shu is one of the best 2A players in the world. That’s undeniable. But what you might not know is he’s also a solid 1A player also. Check out his 1A freestyle from HamaCon 2012.
