Michael Montgomery at the Tri-Cities Yo-Yo Competition

This was one of the last competitions Michael Montgomery competed in before focusing his attentions to the behind the scenes aspects of the yo-yo industry. From developing yo-yo related products like shirts, books, guides, and yo-yo’s themselves; to organizing the Idaho Yo-Yo Championships, running a handful of companies and even more websites.

  1. Now that makes me feel old, my friend! I am used to seeing you as you are now, that was a “blast from the past.
    Is there a reason behind your stopping?

    1. So I actually wrote that post in 2009, at the time i stopped because I had graduated and left to go to college. I was trying to launch a t-shirt company caller double take industries. We made a shirt with a mouse in a mouse trap captioned “oh snap!”, and another with some dice on it captioned “wanna die?” For the most part trying to make a play on words. Then I decided to start making yoyos and going through that first adventure of prototyping. Basically I was well occupied exploring the other areas of the yoyo industry I’d never seen before.
