Advanced Prize: Xela gets a mint half RED half BLUE PGM and a Bundle (50 strings per bundle) of Red Chaos string and a Bundle of Blue Chaos String

Beginner Prize: Kim gets a MIP Velocity Premium and a bundle of some string (tbd when I get home to see which bundle I have left)

Your sneakiness has both been noted and is appreciated  Grin

Imagine my surprise when I found a new yo-yo in my box from you, No note or anything.   I looked at my wife and said, I guess he wants a review huh?
The the next day, I saw this thread!

and I lol'ed


(ps the DNA is great, Finished the Eval, and am starting to write it tonight.)

I have it on good authority that the "Beast" line is just some prototypes and if it goes public, will carry a different name.

Thanks Doc.  I really enjoy writing these.  The process of breaking down a yo-yo without having to compare it... And then dropping in quips and dated references.  = My idea of a good time.

I did not post it on YoYoIng because it was a YYN exclusive and I am not entirely sure how Greg would respond.  I posted it here because Andre told me any review is welcome, even if he does not sell it.
But, It looks like it was well received which is a huge relief.  I was afraid I would wake up today and there would be bricks in my windows and eggs down my chimney.

Wow guys, that is quite an Honor, thank you.

Surprisingly, pretty darn well.  Even the diehard Peak fans seemed to receive it well.  I just got a comment on my sire from Chris (CLYW) that he really appreciated my input, so I think I was able to provide an honest review without offending anyone, which is hard to do with a popular yo-yo if the review isn't a "10/10 OMG GETZ DIS NOWZZZZZZZZ/TRADE MY MOTHER FOR IT!" 

So far so good.  I Think that this review will help show that I am willing to swin upstream for the sake of honesty.

Well like I said in my review, I thought that it played extremely well in most areas, but there were things I could not ignore.  Not a yo-yo for someone still working on their throw, this thing will tilt unless you know what you are doing.  BUT....  In the right hands, it is Hot CoCo and Campfire smores on a cold night.

Now, see? This is some quality review work here.

A good and detailed review, done honestly, without being a jerk about it. There were things in that review that had to be said, and they were, but they were said in a way that doesn't incite the lynch mob to form.

Oh, and it even had a BTTF II reference in it! My favorite movie(s) of all time.

On a slightly unrelated note: I miss the 80s. Badly.
From one Doc to another, I have to tell you I was pretty worried about how this review would be received.

Can't afford the other ones out of pocket, but we will see.

I've got a problem. I am completely addicted to Purple and Green yo-yo's. When I do performances and shows, I wear Purple and Green Shoes. I have 2 Freehands, a G5, an M1, and a Project, with the Purple and Green color combo. Naturally, when the “Hulk Smash” Peak was announced, I had to get a mop to clean up my drool. I was lucky enough to get one just a few seconds after the launch, and for the next 4 days, was perched at my window eagerly awaiting the mail man like a 5 year old waits for Santa. I was excited. Despite the decade plus I have been yo-yoing, and my growing yo-yo collection, this would be my first Peak.

well sorry for getting off topic but....
when I went  to redondo today I saw a kid who was a begginer pick one up off the counter  without permission: rule break #1
then next thing I know hes taking it outside:rule breaker #2
then he starts doing WALK THE DOG on the PAVEMENT: rule breaker # 3
when the staff inspects it they say they have to pay for it
they make the excouse that their credic card is in their car and take off: rule breaker # 4

sorry for spreading romurs but its sad that there are only 59 non-schrached ones now
Wow man, that is intense.  It is a real shame to because the 5 Star sold out all over the world on day 1

Rim Dipped, that thing is awesome when spinning.  It looks like a mini catch 22
