Hello, folks! I hope you are all doing well!
I started throwing in september, 2004. In november I bought a YYJ Hitman, my first “pro” level yo-yo, which I still have.
In 2008, I released a batch of 50 yo-yos, which I called Energy (the purple thingy in the picture). A cool undersized organic throw born from the will of trying to show the brazilian community that we could produce good stuff at a time we only had imported and boutique equipment.
From those 50 made, I gave around 5 or 6. Sent 15 to the US. Kept One. Sold the rest here in Brazil.
Reviewing was mostly positive, for which I’m very thankful and very proud. You can still check them in the major forums.
Twelve years later, I’ve been bitten by the will of making yo-yos a serious side project with new designs and that could help yo-yoing in Brazil, South America and wherever else I’m allowed to.
I’d love to do this in person, but distance and quarantine keeps us from getting in touch. So the internet comes to help. If you’d like to talk about it, leave a comment, feel free to PM me, and I’ll love to hear you and share my thoughts.
It’ll be hugely appreciated if you could participate in a Survey I designed, to help me understand better what the community wants and/or doesn’t want. I’s an 11 click questions survey with 3 optional comment fields. You’ll take less than a minute to take but will have my eternal gratitude!
Keep safe! And keep throwing.
