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.
