YoYoJam Eneme (Production Version) - A YoYoSkills.com Review
Let me drop a history lesson logic bomb for some if the newer yoyoers. The X-Con design is almost five years old. Five. If the X-Con was a kid named Timmy, Timmy would be in the Kindergarten learning about Johnny Appleseed, eating paste and playing 4 square at recess. Johnny DelValle designed and tested the X-Con after his 2003 Yo-Yo contest sweep. In 2003 Johnny DelValle won BAC, Nationals, and Worlds AND was awarded Trick Innovator of the Year. After this incredible domination, and a year of testing, the X-Con was released in 2005. It was then re-released it at the beginning of 2006 as the X-Convict. This new model had a different plastic on the body but was largely unchanged. For almost 4 years (Yeah, it boggles me that we are on the verge of 2010 also) the X-Convict has been a staple in the industry. 2009 is coming to the end, and we are going to close the year with a revisit to the beloved X-Con. The Eneme, designed and tested by Johnny DelValle, has been heralded as the much anticipated metal X-Con, something that fans of YoYoJam have been demanding for years.
