This week someone else posted a video using the Memento and I needed to feature them in the trick Compilation video. Vincent Blanco posted his trick on Instagram and said I could feature it in this week’s video so it’s in here 🙂
Week six encompasses tricks posted from 050220 to 050820. We’re in the thick of 5A May right now so there has been a lot of counterweight tricks recorded lately. We also have shipped 29 Memento yo-yo’s around the United States and a few European countries. So hopefully next week we’ll have some guest trick videos to incorporate into the compilation video. Also mentioned was the restart of Let’s Play Yo-Yo, wherein I am going through the Level Up system by YoTricks as a way to challenge myself to learn stuff again on a regular basis.
Hey everyone, they Memento’s are here! Very excited to have the run in and to be able to share my own design with the world. On Friday, the 1st of May I released 10 of each color (red, blue, and gray) on my website’s shop and we had an awesome first day of sales. The grays all sold within hours, there are a few reds and blues left. If you picked one of them up, thank you! I appreciate your support!
It’s also 5A May, so I posted a few 5A tricks as well this week. I don’t normally participate but it seemed like it could be fun to branch out from 1A for a while so my trickcircles are going to be peppered with 5A tricks, ideally at least one a day, for the rest of the month. 🙂
Did a few more grinds than normal this week, did some regens too. Gave away the Komodo on Friday to one of my discord members. The next giveaway will be for a Memento, which are in the mail and headed my way right now. Very exciting! 🙂

Tricks posted between the 4th of April and the 10th of April to my Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook.

I’ve been seeing people ask about this N11 yo-yo by MagicYoYo a lot. I wanted to see what the fuss was all about. It’s one of those situations where they’ve priced it so low that you can help but to buy one and forgive any slight issues it might have. It has its pros and cons. I feel like I touched on most of them with this first impression session but if you have any questions or thoughts let me know in the comments. I’m still testing it and forming my conclusions for the review video. I feel like I’ll be restating most of what I have said already but in a week I should hopefully have a more leveled out opinion of the yo-yo and can compare it to my initial assessment to see if theres anywhere I might have missed.
I got this N11 here, https://amzn.to/2saPMVE, which if you decide you want to buy one and do it through this link I’d get a kickback.

Thank you guys for your feedback, I spent about an hour trying to think up binds, this is what I was able to come up with. I absolutely know more but at a certain point most of them are just variations of each other. If you see any binds you would like tutorials of call out the timestamp in the comments.
Wanted to try doing a voice over of some tricks and techniques I liked from the Christmas live stream. I’m using this video to decide what to work on in the next live stream. Just went with my first attempt at a voice over recording. Hope it’s not too boring…
