Rosen Triangle – Jacob Jensen
“An amazing trick from Jacob that I filmed at the 2013 World YoYo Contest, and totally forgot that I hadn’t posted.” – Steve
Song is “Ridin’ Dirty” by The Good Lawdz.
Yoyo used is the Sentinel by Werrd.
Phone Trick – Darnell Hairston
“After months of not sending us tricks, we get this gem from Darnell Hairston. Filmed on his phone…vertically. *sigh*” – Steve
Yoyo used is the Yeti by CLYW.
Song is “Cadaver” by Chastity Belt.
Cheap Yakisoba – Jacob Jensen
“Of the many tricks I’ve built, this is one of my most favorites. Not because it’s exceptionally pretty, flowy, or revolutionary, but because it takes a few burly concepts and ties them together in a big awkward mess that makes me a better yoyoer for landing it. It also unlocked chopstix for me, much as watching Shawn Fumo’s Wrist Mount Project unlocked the wrist mount for me.
Inducted chopstix mount, knuckle split, wrap suicide caught with pinky, inverted induction to GT. After filming this trick the first time, it was well over a year before I landed it again. Partly because it’s so hard that I failed when I tried, and also because it’s so hard that I assumed I’d fail when I tried, and thus rarely bothered to. Let that be a lesson to you.” – Jacob
Song is “Hare Hare Yukai” by Rasmus Faber.
Yoyo used is the 86400 by Werrd.
String used is Baby Teal by yoyoGstring.
Spike – Ky Zizan
“Another one from Ky Zizan…that handle loop that he throws and then uses to pull the Green Triangle? Totally looks like the spike on a kendama. Weird, right?” – Steve
Yoyo used is the Split Decision by Werrd.
Song is “In Chains Awakening” by Wreck and Reference.
Pop Filler – Dimi
“Something I’ve been doing for the last couple of years. Trick starts out with a reverse GT, goes into some fancy over arm thingies, and ends in a rejection to a pretty standard GT.” – Dimi
Little Green Hop – Steve Brown
“This is a trick that I found on the way to another trick that never quite worked out.” – Steve
Song is “Fatty Boom Boom” by Die Antwoord.
Yoyo used is the Shutter by YoYoFactory.
Cheap Watch – Steve Brown
“I’ve been working on building combos lately. This is a bit of my clockworky stuff to start, and then pushing out of my comfort zone a bit with a false triangle suicide…which, for those who know me, is really damn weird for me.” – Steve
Song is “Baby C’mon” by Stephen Malkmus.
Yoyo used is the Avant Garde 2 by YoYoFactory.
Party Like It’s 2003 – Rafael Matsunaga
“Sorry, it’s a bit hard to see the mount, but it’s just a fake green triangle. I remember there were lots of variations on the cross-arm thing, Shima even had a 3A version. Let’s bring it back! :)” – Rafael
Song is “Your Emotions” by Dead Kennedys.
Yoyo used is the Barracuda by Duncan Toys.
The first bit is an old trick I made up back in 1997 called “Buddha’s Bundle”, which then pushes out to a weird and kinda hard to hit thumb mount thingy that you throw up and behind everything to land on the front string for the triangle.
Expect a lot of knots. It looks uncomplicated but…expect a lot of knots.
Song is “Untitled Track 4” by Rivals Schools. It’s from an unreleased album that’s been floating around for a few years. No idea if this song every actually got released anywhere.

I’ve been twiddling with this combo for a while…it combines elements from two earlier tricks, but for some reason putting them together like this is just really addictive. So, after a week of debating, I’m just going to put it up here since it’s fun and it’s what I kept doing all day.
Song is “The Best Stomachs” by Deadsure. They appear courtesy of No Idea Records.
