Turning Point Shake, Signature model of Takeshi Matsuura

Multiple time 5a World Champion and 2014 1a Worlds Runner-up Takeshi has a new Signature Model, the Shake by Turning Point. Priced at about 70-80 USD, it looks to be a much more affordable throw than the Palpitation. Courtesy of a friend, i managed to try one earlier today, it has a rounder, smaller profile when compared to the Palpitation and also has a much more solid feel on the string for those who were wondering.

You can get one at the TP store or at Spinworkx

Chase Brown 2014

Not a new video, but i thought i'd share this, Chase Brown is a really good player with some great technical tricks and ideas. Looking forward to seeing more from him in the future. Pay attention to the last trick especially, that GT is incredible.

Frontstyles are generally less explored than sidestyle tricks, but Tsukasa from One Drop shows us why this shouldnt be the case

Who has the best finger spin?

Nothing much today, was just watching the series of finger spin short clips of Paul Kerbel that YoYoFactory released over the past few days, and it reminded me how it got started, or rather, who I remembered seeing as the first person who expand the finger spin stuffs.

here's a series of Paul Kerbel's.

And then I thought, didn't Momo from C3YoyoDesign did one video on a really long finger spin?
that was really impressive, and that wasn't the only one either, but here's the one I'm talking about.

Of course, later there's a lot of other players who could do it really well, but those who got more recognition doing it are definitely players like Shu Takada, Takeshi Matsuura, Jeon Ji Hwan, Rei Iwakura & Han Sanprasert in 4A, and more that I might have left out.

But ultimately, who I remembered as the first to go into this finger stuff and expend it would be Kota Watanabe.

Finger spins starts at about 2:38 mark.

I don't have an answer to who has the best finger spin, but I often think more about what yoyoe they were using when they do it. This entry makes no sense, just thought I'll share what I am thinking at the moment, and share some videos that you may have missed, or forgotten.
