I haven’t kept up with the contest scene and I honestly don’t know if these have aged well, but I wanna play…

John Ando 2008 World’s showed a different route than just using speed. Major style. Ushered in an era of arm/body tricks.

Yuuki Spencer 2009 National’s, the last amazing contest freestyle from the master. Love the construction of this freestyle and the music edit.

Jensen Kimmitt 2011 World’s, a personal statement from the flow master. Somehow this broke my interest in keeping up with contest freestyles, actually. It just made me starkly aware that contests are not really made to showcase the type of yoyoing I care about.
