Case File 003

G2 Nation,

Let’s start with a quick refresh about the case file series. I wanted a way to produce unique designs, that wouldn’t necessarily have mass appeal. Designs that would be still be prototyped, but limited to a single run for sale, then moving on to the next design. 001, 002, 003 all were focused around the finger spin design. 003 being the most unique of them all. An undersized stepped organic bimetal.

The 003 specs –
Diameter 50.6mm
Width – 41.5mm
Weight – 62 grams
Bearing – Boss Rage
Pads – G19s
Axle – 6mm

There are 4 colors of the 003. Royal blue (sold at contests) Deep purple and Steel (releasing Thursday 8pm edt) and a 4th colorway that will be released later this summer. In total 100 were made and only about 70 passed our QC, so numbers are limited but still in line with our one and done case file policy.

Overall I am a big fan of the 003. It’s the first case file I wish was a normal production yoyo, but staying true to the plan it will remain a 1 and done.

Much love for all of the support, your guys are going to truly enjoy this one!

July 12th Restock

G2 Nation,

What’s up, how we doing? If you didn’t catch the vlog, were about to take a week or two off. With that said if you’re trying to get something fresh we have a drop Thursday. Some Banshee 18s and Elite 18s. Both incredible colors, so so good.


Why the time off? Family time. Taking a week off from everything for a vacation followed by trying to get the house ready for Jonah’s first birthday party. The kids turning one already. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone..

Catch you on the flip,

Jake

Cliff Notes – Yo-yos at 8pm Thursday in the store.

5/24/18 Large Restock

G2 Nation,

Trying something new this drop. We are going big. We have 4 colorways dropping. 2 banshee, a pelican, and an AL7 Elite. Usually we don’t drop this many yoyos at once. I’m testing this out to see if it’s a better option for you guys. I think you will have more time to order Vs the smaller drops. Not sure if we will be talking hours or weeks I haven’t dropped this many yoyos in a while.

Just an FYI these will take a couple days to ship, they will not all be out the next morning like on our usual drops.

Oh, one other small note. Taking some time off after this drop so don’t expect anything restocked as quickly as normal.

Drop time is 6pm edt in the G2 Store on Thursday 5/24/18

Much love,

Jake

May the fourth be with you

G2 Nation,

We have the perfect drop for Star Wars Day. The Dark side Elite. Black on black. The first AL7 version to drop. For those of you new here that’s when we use 7075 aluminum instead of 6061. Weighs in at 1.6 grams heavier than the regular 2018 Elite.

8pm EDT tonight if you’re interested.

Elite 2018 Restock

G2 Nation,

See you guys tonight in the store at 9pm EDT for some SS and Brass Elites. Many of these didn’t pass QC so quantities are limited. Sad face.

Much love my friends. Have a great day!

Berries and Cream Banshee 2018

G2 Nation,

Very last second I know… tonight at 7pm EDT I’ll be releasing these beautiful Banshee. Spring time life has been coming on strong, and Jonah is on the move. I’ll do my best for more lead time on the next drop.

Jake

4/10/18 Release

G2 Nation,

Short and sweet today. Hope to drop two Brass Elite 2018 colors this week. Both ended up being more limited than expected. Brass rings have been giving my QC issues, but the ones that pass are so so good.

Anyways – G2sday 7pm est will be the Vogue colorway, and Thursday will hopefully be the Tranquility.

Thanks for everything,

Jake

Big Boi 430 Release

Gooooood Morning G2 Nation,

Happy G2sday. So, we made a big yoyo. Plays pretty good, lots of fun. Did I say it’s big? 63×46 67.7 grams.

Drops today at 4:30 eastern daylight time if you’re interested. Plan was to only make this as a one time drop, we’ll see. I’m not ready to commit to that just yet after playing it. Excel green and Arby’s sauce. Enjoy!

Big Boi
