Hey all dropping these beautiful Banshee at 5pm est tonight. Just a small batch but I’ve been talking about dropping them in the vlog.
Also it’s your last day to order the G2 x Throwers yoyos. A yoyo designed by r/throwers and powered by G Squared yoyos. Make sure you grab one today if you want one!
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.
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 email@example.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,

**For those of you in Europe that have to pay import taxes, I plan to have Josh Vickers (Ciczlow) do distribution for anyone that is worried about those and would like him to relay your package. Just email me after you preorder to get that set up.
Many of you know most of the AL7 Wolves were machined to up to our high standards and got thrown away. Some of the Deep Purple only have a slight vibe and we will be releasing those at 5pm est tonight. Limited quantities will be available due to the manufacturing issues.
Also if you didn’t know, AL7 designates the 7075 aluminum used instead of the 6061 like the original Wolf.
Great news, I’ve finally talked Josh into joining the G2 Family. He’s our first international player and fits our team perfectly.
If you have ever been to a meet/contest with Josh you know he has the personality that makes the atmosphere more fun, and the tricks to back it up. He’s not about that competition life, but I’m looking forward to his commitment to bringing us more of those banger trickcircles.
Join me in welcoming him to the team with his latest Video
250 likes and we will be giving away a Ghost, just some incentive to make him feel the love!
The best is yet to come,

Tonight’s the first online release of the Ghost. Only in the Royal Blue color, available at 5pm est.
Thanks for being patient waiting on these,
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.
