G Squared Albatross: A High Speed YoYo Review
My love of new companies is showing again. It always makes me happy when I get an unknown; there are no preconceived notions of how it will play. Iâ€™m not say preconceived notions are a bad thing, it is just that fans of One Drop, General-Yo, CLYW, (company of choice here) all know the play of their brand of choice. Even if it is a completely new, off the wall design from that company you will probably hear a player say â€śIt still feels like a (insert company here)â€ť. The new company we looking at today is G Squared, started by Brett Grimes and Jacob Gross. Brett and Jake are both passionate players, members of High Speed YoYo, and sponsored by Toxic String with Brett also being on the One Drop team. The backstory for G Squared is simple, both had met up for a Sunday morning video session and had an idea; why not make a yo-yo of our own. It was just that easy. A month or so later and the first prototypes came off the machine, the rest is history. Brett and Jake had a few extra of the retail run made with a special colorway that were to be given to friends, hence the funky blue/orange acid wash version in this review. When Brett gave me mine he asked if I even wanted to do the review since we are friends and all. My response was a less than elegant â€śheck yesâ€ť. I explained to him that I have friends at other yo-yo companies; I am not affiliated in the least with G Squared so why wouldnâ€™t I want to review it? Now lets see what two passionate players can come up with when they put their heads together.
