It’s Friday here in the HQ, and we have a drop tonight. The last of the Brass Rim Banshee SS.
What can we say about it. Um, the colorways is incredible. I plan to keep it going in the future on other offerings. The gunmetal / brass contrast is amazing and it can’t be limited to just this offering.
Drop is at 8pm eastern in the G2 Store – 8/20/21
16 units passed QC, 15 in the store, 1 held back for the next draft.
This Wednesday – 7/28/21 at 9pm eastern we are doing something special. It’s been a bit since we dropped two yoyo on the same day, but we are.
Both of these color ways are incredible and I figured the best way to make the most people happy was to drop them together. This way many more people can walk away with something if they want to. I would normally expect both of these colors to sell out very quickly but with the extra number of yoyos, I think the odds are good you can snag one if you show at drop time.
First the Nebula P19. It’s just awesome, one of the fan favorite color ways. limited number of these, if you miss the drop and would like to snag one after, you can submit a bid to the silent auction. Gsquaredyoyos@gmail.com send your highest offer, winner will pay what the second highest offer was plus shipping. This process seems to help discourage scalping, and gets you the product direct from us vs second hand bst.
Next is the Lucid Dreams AL7 Banshee SS. AL7 means the body is constructed from 7068 instead of 6061. Comes in about .5 grams heavier vs the standard version. Personal preference for which you like better. I usually prefer the AL7 but it depends on the day. Look at the rim. Look at them. Then look at the body. Just so good.
Thanks for the support friends. Hope you have a great week.
We made 15, 14 of those passed QC. 10 for the site, 2 for patreon.com/g2jake raffle, 1 for the silent auction, and 1 for the draft. Glitch is going into my display case for the time being. Boss perks.
If you haven’t seen the video yet, I think its the best RRR yet. Take a look and it will be compared to the others. These ones seem to have more of the blue/green/yellow in them that I personally like.
Drop is set for Friday – 6/25/21 at 7pm eastern. I will do the patreon raffle on Saturday morning, and will get back to the silent auction winner on Saturday after I remove the bids that got one from the store or raffle. Silent auction is set up so the highest offer wins but pays the second highest offer. email@example.com is the only way to enter that.
First public release for the brass rimmed SS is tonight. A couple things you should know. Drop time – 6pm eastern. Brass rims play very different than the other versions. Way more spin, stability, and umph. Doesn’t have the agility the same way the others do. Also the brass will tarnish over time, you can polish them back up pretty easily.
Lastly not sure how many more of these we will be made because of the QC issues. I made 25 but only 14 passed.
Today is the drop for the incredible Nebula Reaper. 4/23/21 in the g2 store, patreon, and one silent auction.
We ran 20 of these. 16 passed QC. Not the best pass rate but after initial testing I was happy to get this many.
For the silent auction, I will notify the winner on Saturday morning. To enter send your highest bid to firstname.lastname@example.org the highest bid will win and pay the price of the 2nd highest bid plus shipping.
The raffle on patreon will be drawn on twitch today around noon eastern. Those winners will get to buy the nebula at retail without going through the store at drop time.
I will be holding 1 back for the draft and 10 will make it on the site at 7pm eastern. Maybe luck and internet connection be on your side to land this gem!
Most of you have seen this video explaining the preorder by now. If you haven’t here is the link – https://youtu.be/6vJa79xV-xw
quick bullet points –
available for 10 minutes at 9am and for 10 minutes at 9pm eastern in the G2 store. Friday 4/16/21
Proto will take about 10 weeks to get back. You will have access to the Titanium Triton FB group where I’ll be asking you all questions after you get them, to help compare it to the OG triton and if the conversion translates to Ti.
Titanium Grade 5
Opportunity in the FB group to get yours anodized by me, or order a blasted version.
Access to any other protos and guaranteed one of the first production runs.
Specs are very close to the OG Triton. 56.5 x 44 x 65grams – 8mm axle, G19 pads.
$270 for the pre order. $255 if you’re a patreon backer.
Any other questions please reach out. This is our most anticipated yo-yo I can remember. Currently I do not plan to have a pre order for the production run.
We have 7 for the store, 2 for the patreon.com/g2jake lottery, and 1 for the silent auction. Quantities are limited, we had some issues with the QC on this batch. We had ordered 20 but only had 11 pass as A grades.
They do look incredible, I’m not sure if we will keep this version or the Miami sunset version in the regular rotation.
