We teamed up with YoYoFactory to make this year’s National Contest a little more interesting!
Who do you think will be the next National Champ?
YoYoFactory has a few guesses:
Gentry Stein with the SHUTTER Evan Nagao with the EDGE Michael Stecz with the SUPERSTAR BI-METAL Kevin Nicholas with the NINE DRAGONS Clint Armstrong with the SPACE CADET Patrick Canny with the EDGE Eric Koloski with the REPLAY PRO
Purchase any of the yo-yos listed above by 3PM PST on 9/17/2016. If the yo-yo you purchased is used to win the National Yo-Yo Contest you will receive a YoYoExpert Gift Certificate for the FULL RETAIL VALUE of that yo-yo!
^^^ If he wins using the Nine Dragons it surely won’t be because of the yoyo. I didn’t see him do one trick from that routine that made use of the Nine Dragons design. Point being… like a lot of the top competitors, he’s good enough to win using just about ANY yoyo.
Agreed, he is definitely good enough to win with any of the new YYF yo-yos, but he does make use of the Nine Dragons design. The Nine Dragons free spinning profile pretty much negates any string rub which really helps with his crazy horizontal tricks and makes it easier to recover on a missed horizontal trick.
