Those of you who were paying attention during the launch announcement of the new Smashing YoYo Company will recall that I mentioned the Poppet, the first yo-yo that is about to be released by Smashing. Jordan Blofeld has been happily releasing more information about the Poppet, and things are looking good!
One thing that is great about Jordan is that his tastes in yo-yos are similar to my own. This is one of the reasons he was able to convince me to pull the trigger on a YYR Sputnik. This also means that the Poppet is looking very much like a yo-yo that I will enjoy. That is a good thing since I have one already on its way to me! You can check out the images and specs of the Poppet below. You may also want to check out the Poppet information over on the Smashing YoYo blog.
Also worth checking out is the new video of some UK players using the Poppet, which you can also find below. The Poppet will officially release on July 17 directly from Smashing YoYo and will start at £65. Get excited!
