First of all, HUGE congrats to Ma Yi of C3 yoyo design for winning HBYC this past week.
I want to point out something very special here that some may not have noticed firsthand.
Ma Yi won this contest, beating out some pretty great players, using a very large percentage of tricks that DO NOT LAND ON A STRING.
Keep in mind that this is a very revolutionary accomplishment.
Long has it been stated that in order to win contest, you need lots of “string hits”. This is not always the case, but many would say that it is a huge part of being able to win a contest.
I think this freestyle proves that there is more to winning a contest than string tricks, and originality can indeed win out over all.
Very special moment in yoyo history, and I hope many can see this.
