Happy to help spread the word Smiley


Shoutout to JT (Cyber), who started the Cyyclical website that I've started following for this GN Yoyo Co update:
One to Watch: The Phoenix (Cyyclical)

Hey, I got quoted in something, lol.  Grin Couldn't help but come check on this thread, I actually miss playing the Phoenix every day...... ok, I was getting a little bored shortly before I sent it on, but it was due to the fact that I was putting multiple hours PER DAY on that thing exclusively, and now I miss it again

I am glad you liked it.

Once you reach a certain point, it isn't the shape of the yoyo that creates the fun. Instead, what you do with the tool itself is fun.

New Updates!
Phoenix Announcement: (from our Facebook page)
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OUR FOLLOWERS!!
We have a little Christmas gift to share with you and our team. Unknown to you all, we applied for a small loan to start off our Phoenix project. Well, our loan has been approved and we will receive the necessary funding in early January. We will begin work on Phoenixes immediately and should have them ready by late March to early April some time.
The yoyos will be anodized in four different colors (5 yoyos of each, making only 20 yoyos). These Phoenixes will be considered the "Original Phoenixes." We will never produce these four colorways again on the Phoenix yoyos in the future, so these will be true collectibles. More details are below:

Material: 6061 Aluminum
Diameter: 59.45mm
Width: 45.48mm
Weight: 68.6g

Bearing: 10-Ball Centering Bearing (unnamed)
Response: Monkey Snot

OG Phoenix Price: $120
B-grades (if available): $80
*prices do not include shipping or any other applicable fees

Colorways:
1. Yellow/Pink Acid Wash
2. Blue/Red Acid Wash
3. Purple/Orange Acid Wash
4. Green/Silver Acid Wash

We hope you enjoyed this little bit of information and hope you buy from us in the future. There will be many more posts regarding updates on the Phoenix project in the future, so stay posted.

New Logo:
Thanks to one of our team members, we have new logo that actually looks stunning. View the first attached picture to this post.

DFW Open:
For those of you that don't know, the DFW Open Yoyo Competition will be held on January 23, 2016. The popular yoyo club, Lone Star Spinners, are hosting their first yoyo/kendama skill toy event.
To help them out, we have proudly sponsored the event and will have a booth there (find us by looking for the banner with our new logo) where we will have t-shirts, strings, and Phoenix prototypes for you all to test.
Aaron Johns will be our representative at the contest and Ryan Danielson may be attending as well. We hope to see you there.
(the second attached picture is the official flyer for this contest)

Thank you, Aaron Johns, for representing our company at the 2016 DFW Open Yoyo Contest this past weekend running our booth.
Thanks to all of you who bought our new t-shirts and candy. We had a 7075 prototype Phoenix on the table for anyone who wanted to try to do so. Wish we could have seen more of you.
Congrats to Yiyang Wan (Freestyle), Jan Belagra (Gunslinger and Sport Ladder), and Dwight Daly (Kendama) for winning their respective divisions on Saturday from GN Yoyo Co.

One step forward, two steps back Zorro.  You're selling cheap knockoff konkave bearings that you bought in bulk from China.  Are you aware of the patent on the konkave bearing design in yo-yos?

Please do not post further about these or I will have to take down your "company" thread.

zorro did you even think to look at this before you tried selling them on your site and on facebook.

you might have saved yourself if you had read it, but what you just did is illegal and Frank should he want to could order a cease and desist and ruin your start up wanna be company.

Honestly this company is going nowhere fast and has a bad track record of doing dumb crap that makes them look worse and worse.
