They put one of the yoyo’s in the other yoyo’s box, and so the other yoyo was in the other yoyo’s box, so I had to switch their boxes after the video recorded. Not naming the yoyo on here so I don’t spoil the video. :stuck_out_tongue:


#2

Did you get a triumph?


#3

Yes, the Triumph was in the Barricuda box, while the Barricuda was in the Triumph box, they had it switched around.


#4

UGH why does the universe keep reminding me that I want a Barracuda and didn’t win anything from the cards >:(

Lol, seriously though, congrats man, I’m glad a forum member at least won one of the grand prizes


#5

Always next year mate! Keep trying.

Also does anybody know what kind of Hayabusa I got? I can’t seem to find any information on that particular style, all white and flames. I am thinking it was some kind of special edition.


#6

Yeah, and hopefully I run into a spare $70 before Duncan runs out of their sale on the current generation barracuda ;D

YYE’s infographic thing says its a Higby Hayabusa, so it seems to be a player model


#7

I read somewhere that it is the last line-ups that are on sale, once it’s over then that means it’s all gone. They are remodeling and restyling the Barracuda and I don’t know when the new ones will come out.

EDIT: That’s kind of odd, the Torque and Echo also doesn’t look like the normal ones for sale, maybe they’re limited edition types too? No wonder why I can’t figure them out, they have no engraving stating that they were a Torque and Echo.


#8

Dude congrats you deserve it!!! The Echo 2 you got (of which I am the most jealous out of all your winnings) is the Unengraved Ninja Turtles Version. Soooooo jealous cause the colorway is green ::). The Torque is in an exclusive colorway called “Old Skool”


#9

Thanks mate, any reason why they call it Ninja Turtles version?


#10

congratulations ledave!!! that prize looks awesome!


#11

Thanks for the congrats again you guys. After research, I found out that the Counter-weights set come with the Freehand MG. I also I found out that the Torque, Echo, and Hayabusa are limited editions.


#12

YOOOOOO RED OLD SKOOL TORQUE


#13

Probably cause the greenish hue = turtle skin and the red/whatever else splashes on it rep. the ninja bands they wear on there eyes. I love that yoyo. If you don’t want it you know who to PM xD ::slight_smile:


#14

Nice haul. Congrats.


#15

Awesome man


#16

oh wow,im happy someone actttually won something,very lucky dude,congrats,if you ever wanna spread the love,pm me about selling that triumph yet again Congrats


#17

Thanks again guys.

I also want to say… Wow my accent is quite bad, I was born and raised here in the States, lived in Minnesota all my life. However you can obviously tell I am Asian, I sound like I am fresh off the boat by saying as-some instead of awesome.


#18

Massive congratulations man, you got a really nice haul indeed. Made me chuckle that the Triumph was in a Barracuda box, that was pretty unexpected. ;D

Really glad that we got to see someone on these forums winning a big prize like that (and a great chap no less). Thanks for taking the time to make the unboxing video so we could share in the excitement. :slight_smile:


#19

All good man! I am Asian myself


#20

Haha, I haven’t watched the video with sound since I usually prowl the forum at work, but I am born and raised in Texas, and when I moved to El Paso, the population is predominantly Mexican and hispanic American, so I got my central Texas accent to go away about 80% and sound non-regional, so no matter what, accents stick with you :stuck_out_tongue: Plus every time I hear someone with even a typical old regular southern accent for more than just a few words, my accent comes back in full force and REALLY stands out here in EP
