Why do you like G2 Yoyos?

(G2 Jake) #1

I posted this on Facebook and wanted to ask you the same question. Why do you like G Squared Yoyos?
A very broad question and would like to hear your answers! You guys rock!


I’m gonna come out up front and say I do not own any of your yoyos. My cash doesn’t flow very freely, but with any luck I’ll be ordering a Triton in a couple weeks.

I have, however played with your yoyos at contests a bit and have become acquainted with a couple of your team members. I gotta say, you have a great team (I occasionally dream of being part of it). Jesse and Brandon are some pretty chill guys with tricks to match. And as far as your yoyos go, I’ve tried the Tross and the Triton and I really love how smooth-playing and floaty they are. I’m not sure how exactly to put it, so let’s just say you make some REALLY fun yoyos! Also, I really dig your colorways. Very appealing.


I had an albatross for a while. (Sadly I gave it away) I liked it because it was extremely smooth on the string, felt nice and comfortable in the hand due to being organic, and was rather stable. I also plan on getting a triton, but first I am getting a Chik.

I enjoy the nice comfortable shape of the Nessie. The shape was the first thing I noticed then how smooth it was. I also think using the slightly broader pads was a smart move vs using 19mm pads. I also think the little spike is very unique and a cute little addition to this yoyo. G2 is surprisingly still underrated which I find funny because You guys pump out CLYW quality throws. I know hype is sometimes viewed as a bad thing but Hype can be a good way of getting your name and products out there. You guys need more hype.

Keep in mind it doesn’t have to be specific to our “yoyos”

I also enjoy your involvement in the community. With the constant questions and polls. Shows you care as a company and want to do your best.


I know what I like. I like what GSquared has produced to date. 3 for 3. 2 for 2 for AL7 models, soon to be 3 of 3, for a 6 of 6 total.

Variety, high playability, excellent design. it’s all I ask for from any company

Of course, not every yoyo can be a great match. So far that hasn’t been the case with me and GSquared.


I’ve had a clear ano Nessie for ~9 months now so I will give birth to my abbreviated opinion of this yoyo, which is the only G2 yoyo I have ever played.

The Nessie has a very good sense of control. It really shines with a concave bearing in my opinion. Easy to push fast with when desired and has a nice heft to float ratio. Chopstick tricks are a breeze. This is the only yoyo I have that I can do Harold Owens palm grind/binds with sans glove. The bead blast feels so good. Rejects nicely. Suicide loops really open up with this yoyo. Love the big flowable silicone recess.


It’s certainly not you choice in baseball teams. I like that it’s small business America. The Albatross and Triton play well and are great quality.

In all seriousness, I enjoy the way your yo-yos seem to say “Hey! the person who designed me cares about workmanship and personality.” they really do seem thought out very precisely.

I also enjoy the colors and names. just the icing on the cake.
