4/27/17 Release

G2 Nation,

Sorry about the short notice, I know some of you check this news section for release info frequently.

Tonight we have a drop. 6 pm est. We have Bright Ass Pink Banshee, Superior Aqua Banshee and a pile of glitches. Industrial Pink Banshee, and 3 wolf colors. The Banshee glitches have ano issues or a slight vibe, the wolves are glitches because of vibe.

Thank you all for the incredible support,

G2 Jake

Industrial Pink Banshee

G2 Nation,

Ask and you shall receive. You wanted these dropped on Friday, you got it. 6pm est in the G2 Store. G2 Diamond Blasted goodness. It’s kind of a pink/purple/gunmetal color. Can’t quite nail it down, but it’s really slick.

Hope you all have an incredible Easter weekend.

G2 Nation,

We will continue to post info like this in the news section until we have a new newsletter system.

Gulf Coast Swirl Wolves

G2 Nation,

How’s everyone doing this morning? Ready for a great week? I know we are! As most of you know we have the Wolf drop tonight (Monday 8pm est in the G2 store) We are really looking forward to this one. The Gulf Coast Swirl is incredible. Royal blue base with the aqua and copper G2 swirl. Just fantastic in person, and I can’t wait for you to get them!

Setting up the rest of the week. I hope to be able to drop some Banshee. We have some incredibly bight diamond blasted ones ready to go as soon as I as test and package them. Silicone and assembly was done last week. Maybe some black ones too?!

I know many of you have questions on the Throwers hawks. I am working on them this week, I have to try and find each half a perfect match for the AL7 to be smooth. Hopefully it is just a speed bump in the process and we don’t end up with to many glitches. As far as the 6061 version goes, I tested the bearing posts and they seem to be better, those still need silicone before I can start testing them though.

One last thing, I should be having a Banshee giveaway soon on the youtube channel. I just need to record and upload the video. Make sure you’re subscribed so that you can enter and you don’t miss the chance.

Have an amazing week!

Short Notice Elite Drop

G2 Nation,

I have decided to drop these stunning Elites on Sunday at 1 pm est. That is mostly likely today, when you are reading this. 4/2/17. This is not an April fools joke. I hope to live stream the boxing on Instagram after the drop so stop by the G squared yoyos account.

Little back story on what happened here. Basically I was able to get these Elites ready sooner then anticipated, and decided to drop them. This will be your last chance at an Elite for a bit, these are the last of the ones I have at the G2HQ, but I do have more in the pipeline. Not exactly sure when the next run will be finished up.

Thank you all for the support on the Elites, and I am so happy to hear all of the incredible reviews coming in.

Birthday Elite

G2 Nation,

We have a wonderful update today! First the Elite shirts are now available in the store. Fresh, clean, black on black.

If you have been watching the vlog, you know my birthday is Friday. Can’t wait to see what you guys got me! Didn’t get me anything, no worries I got you something! A small Elite restock. This was the mystery color from the last drop. I’m still working on a name, it’s a deep green with a slight blue undertone. Fantastic in person, incredibly difficult to capture on camera. These will go live Friday at 6pm est. That seems to be our new standard.

Lastly if you haven’t entered the elite giveaway, do it now! I’ll be drawing the winner in the next couple days. It’s Elite

Love you all,

G2 Jake

Blue Sky Elites

G2 Nation,

If you are caught up on the vlogs you already know this. The last month or so I’ve been putting countless hours into G2. I love it, but I’ve gotten a bit burnt out and let some life things fall behind. I’m going to take a little time to focus more on catching up on those things. Now that doesn’t mean I won’t be doing any G2 work, I will be. Just wanted to let you know there would be a little break in the releases. With that said I have one last Elite color ready to go, Blue Sky. They will be available Wednesday at 6pm est in the G2 store. Yes, there will be more colors to come down the road. Thank you all for your support, it’s been great seeing your mailday posts, unboxings, and first impressions. I’m glad the hard work paid off in this one, I do feel it’s truly Elite.

G2 Jake

P.S – forgot to update you on the throwers Hawks, AL7 are finished and amazing. 6061 should be finished and shipped back to me next week.

Berries and Cream Wolf

G2 Nation,

How about a quick update today? First of all we have the Berries and Cream Wolves dropping tonight at 6pm in the G2 store. It is crazy to think that we came up with this colorway back in 2012 on the Albatross and have been doing it ever sense. The colors have changed overtime but it never fails to impress! (If you have a berries and cream albatross please email us, would love a nice photo of it. I’ll make it worth your time.)

This week we you all are deciding who gets to go to the finals of the People’s Showdown, and will have a shot against Andrew Maider to win the $500! Click here to watch

I should be doing a giveaway very very soon for reaching 1750 subscribers on youtube, just trying to think of how I want to do this. (Saw we passed 1800 this morning!!) Maybe I’ll do it on the Elite packaging video I hope to release later this week.

Yes, those Blue Sky Elites you saw in the vlog are next on the release list. I have them assembled, just need to test and package them. No release date planned yet but I will post here when I have one. (If you had a dibs you want to use, make sure you email me soon)

Thank you all for your incredible support as we continue to grow and adjust. Hopefully these changes you have seen recently have give you a better chance to pick up a new G2, and shown that we are listening to your requests. We just needed some time to implement them, and we will continue to.

G2 Jake

P.S – TFW you make it to a UK club meet without leaving your home. Mustache

Snozberries Swirl Wolf

G2 Nation,

Goooooood Moooorning! We are back with a quick restock for you. You have been asking about these wolves for months and they are finally here. The Snozberries Swirl came out so so so good! This was the first time we have taking one of our classic color ways and added the G2 Swirl twist on it. (See what I did there?) Anyway these will be up in the store at 6 pm est, today. Tuesday March 14th.

Spoiler alert, I do have berries and cream ready to be listed soon. I wanted to release them at the same time, but I am currently in the middle of renovating my office (the G2 HQ). Everything is boxed up and in my living room, and it makes packaging / shipping yoyos very difficult. So, we compromised and decided to at least get you one colorway up and in the store. Thanks for spreading the G2 cheer, you guys have been posting some amazing content to our hashtag – #g2yoyos

You all rock,

G2 Jake

Last of the first run Elites

G2 Nation,

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,

G2 Jake
