I had the pleasure of meeting Alexis at a Montreal yoyo gathering one time, and he mentioned to me that the El Ranchero is his throw of choice from the SPYY lineup (who knows what the future will bring!) mainly because the relatively narrow gap (at ~4mm as opposed to the ~4.5mm most have) helps enable certain elements of his style.
Imagine if you will… some company is smart enough to snap him up (mainly for the quality videos he produces! Although as a competitor he’s not shabby either!) and offer him a signature yoyo… you can bet it’s going to have a gap on the narrower side!
But we digress!
Threw my Red Devils a bit today. Those are some good south-african-made fixed-axle loopers! The shape is like a Fast Eddy looper, which in turn is like… er… something else well-known whose name escapes me. 2A is not easy stuff!
