Let’s talk about the Ghost Release

G2 Nation,

The time you have all been waiting for is finally here. Ghost will be dropping in G2 Store this week!

A few notes about the drop. I originally had wanted to have a huge drop 100 plus Ghost available at the same time. At this time I just can’t make that work. What I plan to do is a weekly drop of 25ish units. Mixing in some other models as well. (CF 002, Wolf, Banshee) Now I know this could lead to some cart issues with the Ghost, so I won’t be releasing the time in advance. I’ll post on Instagram and FB when they go live. I know it’s not the ideal situation, but I hope it makes for the smoothest release.

Now for a few points about the Ghost. Retail price is going to be $65. They will be shipping with the Boss Rage bearing, some of you might remember I was testing to see if they would ship with the Rage or Ripper. The Ghost is PTFE (Teflon) as you know which allows for great grinds and weight distribution I could not get with other plastics. It’s also come with some challenges, it’s soft. It will ding/dent if you hit it on the ground. Don’t worry sandpaper will fix it right up. With the softness of the plastic, you can over tighten them and strip them. It’s easy to avoid and fix, but I suggest only tightening with your finger tips. Do not squeeze and tighten using your palms with extra force to screw it back together. One more point of interest about the Ghost. It’s a plastic, meaning it’s not going to be dead smooth like our metals. Most of you know that, but I just wanted to post it so there is no surprise when your ghost has a hint of vibe on your fingernail. I assure you I have tested every Ghost going out and am happy with how they perform.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me. I cannot wait to get these into your hands, they are truly unique and play incredible. Royal Blue will be the first to release, keep your eyes pealed.

June 26th / 28th

G2 Nation,

Get ready. Our biggest drops in a long time are happening Monday at 5pm est and Wednesday at 12 pm est (noon).

You have all been asking for a big drop, and a Europe friendly drop. Well here it is. We will be dropping over 50 yoyos this week, making this your best chance to pick on up!

Just as an FYI these will be the last releases for a couple weeks. After this much assembly, testing, packing, and shipping I will need a bit of time to work on that “honey do list” 😑

Thank you all for the support and spreading the word, I really do appreciate it!

Vintage Elite Release

G2 Nation,

Tonight at 7:30 pm est we will be releasing a limited edition Vintage Elite. Clear blasted finish to resemble a raw yoyo with classy brass weight rings. The brass adds one gram to the design, making it the most powerful 62.5 grams you have ever laid your hands on. This finish is not as glossy as our normal finish that you have seen on the other Elites you have seen. Just a little experiment for the vintage look and feel.

Thanks you for the crazy support and patience as I try to keep up with the demand while still providing the highest quality yoyos you can buy,

G2 Jake

P.S – might have something sour dropping tonight if everything works out as planned.

Rainicorn G2 swirl Warthogs

G2 Nation,

Sorry for the short notice… The legendary rainicorn G2 swirl is back. This time on the Warthog. As you know we only run these one time per yoyo. So tonight (Friday 8pm est) is your chance to pick one up.

For me, this is best looking colorway ever put on a yoyo. I mean look at this thing!

For those of you that watch the vlog you already know. These turned out with a minor vibe and will be sold as Glitches. They still play absolutely incredible.

Much love,

G2 Jake

Case File 001

G2 Nation,

I am going to try and keep this short and sweet. If you want the full details – watch the vlog – CLICK HERE

The Case File series is going to be an on going series. They are yoyos that I want to experiment new ideas or concepts with. Something to spice things up between full releases of polished ideas and designs. Each one of these is going to be a one run and done. Friday will be your chance to pick up a Case File 001 – at 5pm est in the G2 store!

Case File 001 incoroprates a finger spin dimple very similar to the the one Mike Marshall had on a previous signature yoyo. At the same time it takes advantage of the G2 undercut to get some of that center weight pushed to the rim for better overall playability on a yoyo that does not have a spike/nipple for the axle.

Specs –
Dia – 56.2mm
Width – 44mm
Weight – 66.9 grams
Response – G19 Pads
Bearing – Boss Rage and Boss Wrath
Axle – 8mm

If you have any other questions feel free to email me or contact me on social media.

Much love,

G2 Jake

Throwers Hawk

G2 Nation,

Today we release the extra Throwers Hawks. As you have seen, they look and play incredible. Thank you for the support and help making these!

Also – I found a couple Marvels, they will go live at 5pm est as well.

Much love,

G2 Jake

Pitch Black Elite Release

G2 Nation,

The time you have been waiting for. Pitch Black Elites will be available in the G2 store at 8 pm est 5/4/17

May the 4th be with you,

G2 Unicorn Fade Week

G2 Nation,

We have something fun planned this week. To celebrate the best fade in yoyos, the Unicorn fade. We are going to be doing a fun little contest, and posting some great photos every morning on our Instagram.

To enter the contest all you need to do is post a picture of your G2 unicorn to Instagram. Tag @gsquaredyoyos and use the hashtag #g2unicorn. Now for the contest it doesn’t need to be the fade, it can be any of our blue, purple, pink combinations. Enter as many times as you want but keep quality in mind. (Contest ends May 8th)

Looking forward to seeing your entries. John (Foxfirewisp G2 Photographer) and myself will be picking our favorites and I’ll be sending them out some prizes!

Good Luck!

G2 Jake
