If you have spent any amount of time in the throwing community, especially the Throwers Subreddit, then chances are high that you have run into Jordan Blofeld (or ChaosGoW as he is known to many). Jordan used to run the YoChaos yo-yo review site until fairly recently when he decided to take a break. He has also contributed to some of the reviews around here as well. I have gotten to know him quite well online, and count him as a friend within the community. As such, I am really happy today to help announce the launch of Jordan’s very own yo-yo company. Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the Smashing YoYo Company!
It was actually quite shocking for me to learn that before now the UK hasn’t been home to any yo-yo manufacturer and thus Jordan is going to be blazing that trail. I have known about this development for a little while now, and I am also happy to tell you that the very first Smashing yo-yo is already in development and will be known as the Poppet (awesome!). You can watch for the Poppet to arrive later this year. For now, check out the Smashing YoYo Company website and Facebook page.
This is really exciting news, and I really hope that the Smashing YoYo Company knocks it out of the park. Oh wait, wrong country for that metaphor…I hope it scores a six!
