The DXL Battle Championships are coming this August 11, 2012 at The Lab in Costa Mesa, CA. We will be having both amateur and pro/sponsored divisions. More information will be coming shortly to DXLBATTLE.COM. Pass the word my people! Share the wisdom! Let us rejoice together!
Here’s a new video I put together for Ernie at General-Yo. The yo-yo being used in the video is the new KLR. Pick one up when they’re available. It’s a big departure from the traditional General-Yo shape and I think Ernie and his team (Lee and Reed) did a great job on it.
I thought you guys should know that theres a meet Sat February 11 2012 at 1 pm

Jason Lee shows us once again why he holds a National Trick Innovator of the Year title. Jason is one of the most creative minds in yo-yoing. It was great to be able to get together with him and put together another video like we’ve been doing since 2000. It’s been about 3 years since Jason left Southern California to go serve in the military overseas. I was glad to have him back home even for just a little bit before he heads off again, this time to Asia.
Warning: The video contains some adult language in it, so please keep that in mind before viewing.

I filmed this video for RecRev a couple weeks ago. Finally had a chance to piece it together. This place was a pain to get to but worth it. Featuring RecRev team members Kalani Bergdorf, Alex Kim, and Anthony Rojas. Hope you enjoy it.
Be sure to check the Events page for more info about the meeting.
Here’s a short promo video I put together for the DXL Battle Championships 2010 which will be held next month on August 21. All the players featured in the video are members of The DXL Crew. The contest is shaping up to be a big one. We’re even expecting international players this year! Go to http://www.dxlbattle.com for all the current info.
Here it is, the yo-yo that has been rumored to be named the “2010 i”, The Electric Daisy. RecRev’s latest installment is probably my favorite RecRev yo-yo at the moment. A lot was put into the design, yet it looks and feels very simplistic and minimal. They were retailing at a local contest a couple weeks ago for $50. Make sure this is in your “definitely must buy” category for future purchases. I bought two myself. One to rock, one to stock.
I added these two babies to my collection thanks to Ernie over at General-Yo. The larger silver colored yo-yo is The Magnum, a satin-polished, nickel-plated, full-sized yo-yo made out of pure magnesium. It isn’t a fast player, but it feels real good in the hand. The addition of the wooden box which was hand turned from one piece of wood by Ernie’s father really makes this something special. As I understand, not all pieces will come with a box so I was one of the lucky ones.
I also want to thank Ernie for making something special for me. A custom engraved ministar, with the name “glasseye” laser-engraved on one side (not shown). How dope is that? Many many many thanks to General-Yo for the nice surprise. General-Yo is really making a big impact on the yo-yo scene here in Southern California. It’s definitely one of the favorite throws of many of the players in the area.
This Saturday, we’re getting together again for a local meet. We had a great turnout at the last one, it’s a shame I didn’t bring a camera. The meeting will start at 1pm, hope to see you all there. Please click here for the location and more information.
