One of the most exclusive and one of the kind yoyo brand in the world, 3YO3, is sponsoring BIYO2011 !

The brand itself is come from the creative mind of the one and only, Landon Balk. He’ve been machining yoyos on a lathe since 2002, making his first couple mods with only a dremel and a drill press. In the Fall of 2004, he was given a metal lathe for his birthday and enjoyed the challenge of making his own yoyos from various woods, acrylic, aluminum and delrin.

Landon Balk - owner of 3YO3

The 3YO3 brand itself introduced since early 2009. Continuing Landon Balks’s interest in making a “full-hand-made” yoyos from unique materials, 3YO3 gains its own exclusivity in yoyoing world. Basically 3YO3 is a one-man operation, specializing in completely customizeable, hand-machined yoyos as well as shift knobs and rings.  The brand always comes with its mind-blowing designs you’d never imagine before. Unique is the key here and 3YO3 always pushing the boundaries in maixing the finest quality material to make an exceptional quality and beauty you won’t find anywhere else. Acrylic, derlin, and the latest one is teflon.

If you’re looking for something completely unique and unlike any other yoyo out there, this is the throw for you. Each yoyo is entirely hand-machined by me on my metal lathe, and made exactly how you want with respect to color, material, bearing size, response type, and finish. It’s the ultimate piece of functional art!

Perhaps some of may think that with all those exclusivity, material, and hand-made thingy will rocket the price tag to hundreds of dollars. The fact is, the price is pretty rational for a premium quality yoyo. Most of the yoyos is still below $100. Awesome! So head over to Landon Balk’s/3YO3 official site at http://landonbalk.com to grab some all of this beauty ! Yes, they are all beautiful. As beautiful as a spinning diamond coated in rainbow – literally.

Duncan Toys purchases the assets of Playmaxx Inc, officially securing Duncan’s position as the #1 Yo-Yo Manufacturer in the world. Among the models added to the Duncan line are the ProYo, Bumble Bee, and Cold Fusion yo-yos. With the purchase, Duncan also acquires a number of patents, including four patents covering “Brake Pad Technology”, a form of response system for yo-yos. Players everywhere rejoice.

Duncan also holds the patent of freehand play (as in 5a division) with its famous Freehand lines of yo-yos. The first line of Freehand yo-yo, the Duncan Freehand 1 (often abbreviatedFH1), designed by Steve Brown, was the first yo-yo intended for freehand play—it was packaged with a counterweight for this very purpose. Yes, Duncan also holds the patent for counterweight. So what are you waiting for? Throw the Original, the world’s #1,  throw Duncan!
