Ghost Restock 10/31/17

G2 Nation,

Huge Ghost restock at 8pm est on Tuesday. A perfect trick or treat experience. How many is “huge” well I’m not sure, it’s as many as I can get ready tonight. That number is already more than any other Ghost drop before, so I expect these to last for a bit.

AL7 Rainicorn Swirl Wolf Release

G2 Nation,

It’s finally time. We’re as ready as we can be. The Rainicorn on the AL7 Wolf is ready to go. What’s special about the Rainicorn swirl colorway? Well besides it being epic, it’s only done once per model. So you will never see this done again on an AL7 Wolf.

Quantity is very limited, please be patient if we have website issues, I’m not sure how it will handle the demand. Please also remember it is not yours until you pay, just adding it to you cart does nothing.

Ok so the drop is Friday 10/27/17 at 5:30 pm est. Followed by the lottery. If you need more details on that, watch the end of the vlog uploaded on Thursday 10/26/17… yes you might be reading this before that video is up, but it’s easier to describe the process that way.

*Edit* I guess it’s not that hard.. if you want to enter the lottery to win the rights for to purchase an AL7 Rainicorn Swirl Wolf email gsquaredyoyos@gmail.com between 6-7pm est on Friday with the subject “Wolf Lottery”, also include your name and address in the body so I know you only entered once. Winners will have the rights to purchase the left over wolves and glitches.

Thanks for the incredible support and good luck!

Case File 002 Release 10/18/17

G2 Nation,

It’s finally time to release the second yoyo in our Case File series. Our experiment series. The series where we try new and unusual things, for a LIMITED 1 time run. (We will not make this yoyo again)

The 002 is a big organic yoyo with an undercut and fingerspin dimple. It’s been a favorite of the teams, so much so that we considered making it a production yoyo instead of a Case File.

It’s comes in two colors. A purple – berries n cream and a blue – frostbite. You will have two chances to pick these up. Wednesday at 6pm est we will have the larger release. If the site doesn’t load, stick around it takes a few minutes for the hosting to upgrade to need the demand. (I think I said that right) Your second chance is a mystery drop on Wednesday. No announcement will be made by G2 about this drop.

Can’t wait to get these in your hands, you will love it!

G2 Nation Group on Facebook

G2 Nation,

I just created a new Facebook group – G2 Nation. Feel free to go request to join. Just wanted a place to post ideas / news and such on Facebook without feeling like I’m spamming the normal yoyo boards. You guys can feel free to discuss whatever in there as well.

Banshee Restock 9/16/17

G2 Nation,

Currently waiting on the mailman, he should have our Banshee pins for this drop. If not we will still release them but delay the shipping for a day or two.

Stop by the site at 8pm est if you’re looking for a Snozberries or Freedom colorway. Maybe even a little Easter egg. Haven’t decided.

Thanks for all the support on the G2 x Throwers, I’ve been going through all of them this morning and still have a couple hundred to process. Same goes for your emails, I’ll get back to you as soon as I can, give me a day or two.

Much love,

G2 Jake

G2 X Throwers YoYo Preorder

G2 Nation and r/throwers,

It’s a big day. Today we finally start the preorders for a yoyo we have been working on for 6 months! If you are not aware I have been working with r/throwers to help them design a yoyo together as a community. Spoiler alert, it’s a really fun yoyo. I have played it, you’re going to have fun with it. Countless polls and debates have gotten us here to the preorder.

This is the first time G2 has opened the flood gates to allow a unlimited number of orders. This is a yoyo by the people for the people, and I want everyone that wants one to get one. Your preorder is a 50% deposit, that guarentees you a good yoyo. The second half of your payment plus shipping will be needed in a couple months with the yoyo is ready to ship.

Preorders will be open Friday afternoon all the way through Wednesday the 20th. If you have an issue and can’t order in that time frame, email me gsquaredyoyos@gmail.com BEFORE the preorder closes. I will do my best to take care of you. There is no limit to the number of preorders you can order, but the deposit is non refundable so please keep that in mind.

There are going to be 4 colors for you to pick from, one of them being a mystery fade. Depending on how many of this are ordered, there could be multiple fade colorways produced. You will not know which one you got until it arrives on your doorstep.

I just wanted to thank you all for participating in this process, and asking me to help. Great things happen when our community comes together. Looking forward to the biggest assembly/testing/packaging extravaganza I ever plan to be part of!

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to email me. See you on the live stream,

– G2 Jake
