First I hope all of you that celebrated had a wonderful Christmas! We had a great day filled with family and fun at the G2HQ. Jonah was old enough to enjoy it this year, and it was so much fun. That kid brings so so so many smiles to my face. Ok back to the yoyos.
Big drop schedule for today.
8am Freedom Banshee 2018’s
11am Greyscale Swirl Tester Marvels
1pm Mutated Stros Swirl
3pm Mystic Mist Banshee 2018
5pm Deep Purple Aftershock
One of of the other items I wanted to address is the B18 glitches in todays drop. These are almost all smooth but have little marks under the ano. It was really hard to capture them in pictures but the way I found them was using my fingernail testing them while they were spinning. The anodizer stacked the yoyo halves when they were raw before or after the blasting and the way some of them hit together it left the indent – therefor causing the glitch. So thats what they were discounted for, shouldn’t be an issue going forward but I have weirder things happen.
Thank you all for the incredible support in 2018, this should be the last release of the year and it has been a truly amazing one.
Tonight we have our first Hawk restock in a long long time. These will be part of the retirement run that had a total of 6 colors. Half AL7 and half 6061 versions.
8pm est you can get your paws on a couple of the AL7 versions. Numbers became more limited then expected in the Warpath Combats, so we decided to drop the deep purples as well. Both colors are super hard to get in pictures. The Combat because of the ano patters and contrast. The deep purple is so vibrant the camera has a really hard time with that saturation level.
Thank you for the love!
For today only you can preorder yourself a Al7 Bomber and Swirl Web B18.
The bomber will be our first AL7 version on the Banshee 2018, and the Swirl Web might just be the most epic engraving we have ever seen on a yoyo. Today only you can preorder yours in the G2 Store. $25 now and $75 in a couple months when they are ready to ship out. Yes, they will both be diamond blasted.
First of all I was to say Happy Thanksgiving to all of you celebrating today. Even if you aren’t, I still hope you and your family having a great day, and take a minute to be thankful for each other.
You all have given me so much to be thankful for this year.
– Thank you for your daily passion you show for G2. It’s incredible to see and gives me energy on those long days we all come across. Thank you.
– Thank you for your incredible commitment. So many of you have missed out on drops, been frustrated and wanted to give up on us. Most you of stuck around and tried a future drop, where you were able to snag what you wanted. Thank you.
– Thank you for sharing your ideas and participating in all the things we do. This wouldn’t be fun if you guys weren’t along for the ride and contributing. Even something as small as a “like” goes a long way. Thank you.
– Thank you for being open minded and accepting change. Over the past two years we have made a lot of changes to the way G2 operates. Thank you for allowing us to adjust and evolve without giving us too much grief. Thank you.
– Thank you for your patience when things do go as planned. When its my fault or one of my vendors, you are so understanding. Thank you.
_ Thank you for being friendly. You making the G2 Nation FB group such great place. Thank you for encouraging and helping all of our fellow throwers.
Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season. If you’re trying to order something from the store today enjoy 20% off your order by using the code G2thanks
Today’s the today. The final day we get to celebrate the performance that is the AL7 Elite. 7075 with both SS and Brass weight rings will be available in the store at 8pm est.
Feels a bit bitter sweet to retire the AL7 Elite 2018. The yoyo still has the performance top level competition players still need today, still has the elegance as a display piece in your collection.
It’s just time though, as a small maker of premium yoyos we can only focus on so many designs. So with that in mind we say goodbye to the AL7 version this week, and the regular version in the weeks to come. Hopefully our future products can shine the way these do.
A grades are pretty limited so if you want to secure one for your collection I suggest being on the site when they drop. Glitches will be available as well at a discounted price for a minor vibe. Preformace is still incredible on them.
The time has come. Friday at 6pm edt we will be releasing the first P19s into the wild. The new an improved Pelican turned out incredible. Ever so slightly lighter, rounded edges for extra comfort. Diamond blast, what else do I need to say? Full video tomorrow but just wanted to make sure you were ready for the drop.
Oh, a few diamond blasted Banshee will be going live too.
Yeah, it has been a little while. I am still having a hard time making myself post the releases here. One step at a time. So today, we have a big drop. Beater Banshee!! Yeah, the ones Jonah pre dinged for you, leaving you no excuse no to use them as your everyday carry!
Also we have some J grade wolves, these didn’t hit cement, but they are glitches that Jonah pulled off the office shelf. 2 foot drop maybe, still play great.
Last but not least we have the Red Vs Blue Elite. A happy little accident, these were supposed to be unicorn fades but the pink came out red. No biggie, I am a huge fan of these. The red and blue look incredible with the iridescent rims.
Hope you have an incredible rest of the week!
Oh yeah, drop time 7pm edt.
Just a quick like update on this weeks drop. We have all kinds of blue coming at you today. Check out the store at 1pm edt if you’re interested. Oh and make sure you use your discount code we posted on @gsquaredyoyos instagram.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, lets see those tricks!
Well today seemed like as good of a day as any to drop the last solid color Big Boi. The clear ano, silver, or as we call it the write-off colorway. These will be going live at 3pm edt. Short notice, but it’s how I’ve been operating lately. There is only more color, a fade, then the Big Boi will be retired forever. It’s served it’s purpose, and based on the feedback I’ve seen, everyone that’s give this yoyo a chance has loved it. It’s major fun without a doubt.
See you soon!
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 –
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!
