My very first modern yoyo. It was a mustard organic dyed Buzz-On element-x recess remix. A birthday gift from Adam Brewster back in 2005. It was one of the you that he got from a Buzz-On sponsorship.

A custom FHZ.

The original yoyo was given to me by someone when I was starting (still sealed in package).

I played with it a bit, and then a friend offered to try recess it. The recess he did wasn’t the best sili recess I’ve ever seen, but it did the trick…

About a year later someone who was part of Alchemy gave me some weight rings, which added a nice touch to the yoyo.

Then, a while later I tried painting the rims with glow in the dark paint for a show. Eventually the paint started to chip and peel - so I cleaned it off with acetone, which had an unusual benefit… The yoyo ended up with a satin-like finish and could grind like a beast.

A lot of love went into that yoyo, and many people added to it and it played like a dream - I hope the kid I gave it to still loves it!
