Huge shoutout to everyone that has already picked up a first run Elite. It looks like we under shot demand for our first bimetal with both drops selling out in minutes. Second run is in the works and hopefully won’t take too long. With that said I am going to be releasing the last of the MS-70 Penny Elites right now without a prior announcement.
The whole first run was done in the MS-70 Penny (rose gold) color, one of our personal favorites. I decided to do a random drop for the remaining Elites, hopefully you are seeing this post early enough to pick one up. Boxes are finished and should be here early next week, and shipment will closely follow to your mailbox. It’s going to be an epic week for mailday posts when these arrive, I’m so excited for you to finally get them.
Thank you all for the incredible support and helping G2 grow everyday,
Goooood Moooorning! I woke up dark and early this morning and started assembling some more Elites. These will be listed in the store, Tuesday at 6pm est. These like the first batch will be shipping in a couple weeks when the packaging arrives. Hope this helps heal the wound for those of you that missed out Friday. Thanks for the continued support, you all rock!
P.s. – Alphuh released a tutorial this weekend. It might be a good time to increase your trick catalogue – Dairy Tower
First – Thank you all so much for crazy support on the Elite pre-sale. I believe the last order was processed at 5:02. I want to let you all know I plan on having another pre-sale within the week so that they will also be ready to ship as soon as the boxes arrive.
Now, I just wanted to let you all know that your pre-sale Elites have not shipped yet. If you ordered one, you might have gotten an email from paypal saying your order has shipped. It has not, I printed all the shipping labels so that I can have them ready to go as soon as the boxes get here. I will make a post so that you all know they have shipped, and you can start checking your tracking numbers hourly!
Have a great weekend,
Today is the day. The day I have been working so hard for. Today I get to release the Elite. This yoyo consumed me, I put all my passion into it. I didn’t want to do this just to do it, I wanted to take my time and do it right. Striving to display the properties best fit for the dense SS rings. All while shaping the Elite into the classic, timeless yoyo that I am so proud of.
Not only does the Elite look great, it plays great. We kept the weight low, 62 grams, but were still able to maximize performance. Stability, speed, momentum are all words that come to mind when I play with this yoyo. It’s like a finely tuned machine made to slay tricks on the end of your string. I can’t wait for you to throw your hardest combo at this yoyo and after you’re done laugh when it asks for more.
Thank you all for being patient with us, believing in us, and understanding that it was going to take us some time to do this our way. The only way we know, the right way. You can’t rush something like this, so thank you for that.
As you know the Elite will be available today at 5pm est. In our store, gsquaredyoyos.com We only have 5 ready to do with the PNWR prerelease boxes. We know that wasn’t enough to warrant its own release. So, we have 15 pre sales going on the store as well. These yoyos are tested and ready to go, I am just waiting on the new packaging. (white boxes and sleeve with gold foil imprint) These boxes should be ready to go in two weeks, as soon as they are finished your yoyo will ship. At that time we hope to have a restock of the MS-70 Penny Elite. Ordering today will ensure you get one and will guarantee you get your Elite as fast as possible
Thank you for inspiring me,
The Elite is G Squared YoYos passion project. I can’t remember being more proud of a design. Making a bimetal was a huge undertaking that presented many new challenges and opportunities. Finally, after four prototypes, we got it perfect.
When approaching the Elite we didn’t want to make a bimetal just to do it, we wanted to utilize the properties that make this medium special. To harness the magical feeling you get the second you throw a truly well designed bimetal. Our goal was to achieve performance you can’t with strictly aluminum. Obtaining levels of stability and momentum at a weight you can’t reach without the use of different materials. Here at G2 we don’t just go through the motions, we are Elite.

Unfortunately I will not be attending, just not a good time at work for me to take off. Kyle will be their manning the booth. I THINK he will be able to take credit card, but take cash if you can, just to be safe.
Hope you all have an incredible contest!
Finally we are back with a Banshee restock. These have a subtle Aqua to blue fade, which the diamond blast made almost impossible for me to capture in a photo. It’s one of our favorite fades to date, you can pick one up in the store at 6 pm est on Wednesday 2/22/17
