CLYW x Rewind – Rewind 10th Anniversary Box will be released on Aug. 5 around 8:30 pm (Japan Time)!

For the past few years we have released a special box on the occasion of REWIND’s anniversary. Each year has been different, but we have collaborated with many different brands to bring you new and limited models at bargain prices.

We originally planned to release this year’s box in March to celebrate our anniversary, but as you know, the world had other plans. Due to the spread of the coronavirus, things were delayed far more than we expected.

Better late than never, though! This year’s anniversary box is a collaboration with Canadian return top brand CLYW.
We could make this special box possible thanks to our relationship with CLYW as their official distributor for Asia.

 

About CLYW:

CLYW is a popular yo-yo brand from Canada. Owner Chris Mikulin started making yo-yos in 2006, focusing on the design, coloring, naming and packaging to create a whole product experience. CLYW is a design trendsetter, responsible for the popular splash coloring treatment. The yo-yos are well known for their performance, making frequent appearances on the contest scene. Members include World Champion Zach Gormley and Canadian National Champion Harrison Lee. REWIND (Yo-Yo Company Inc.) has been the official CLYW distributor in Asia since 2017.

This time, the main item in the anniversary box is the brand-new, NOT-YET-RELEASED first bi-metal signature yo-yo of 2015 1A World Champion, Zach Gormley, “Wish!”

He is one of the most praised 1A players in the history of modern yo-yo competition, famous for his incredibly complicated, yet speedy and precise play. When he started competing in contests rumors were flying. “Now there’s a kid who plays like a champ!” “He will be a world champion one day!” As everyone expected, he raised his rank in contests every year, winning US Nationals in 2012, then 44CLASH and US Nationals in 2014. Then he conquered the most competitive contest in yo-yo history up until that point: the World Yo-Yo Contest 2015 in Tokyo, Japan! Today, many top players are still influenced and inspired by his creative tricks and combos.

Recently he hasn’t competed in any big contests, but when he posts a yo-yo video the internet goes wild with speculation, wondering “Is Zach back on the contest scene?!” and “Can we finally see his freestyle again?!” Many yo-yo fans are looking forward seeing him on-stage again. This release of a brand new bi-metal might very well be a sign of his return.

In the past, there have been a few signature models for Zach Gormley: the Arctic Circle 1 & 2, Borealis, and Big Dipper. Wish marks his very first bi-metal signature model.

We are excited and humbled to be able to release Wish in our 10th Anniversary Box as its world debut!

WISH

Weight: 65.3g
Diameter: 56.41mm
Width: 43.91mm

The Wish in this anniversary box is a special logo edition for REWIND’s 10th Anniversary.

Would it really be a “box” with just one yo-yo? Of course there’s more inside! Let’s check the contents of this anniversary box!

・Wish Anniversary Box Limited Logo x 1
・Big Dipper Fool’s Gold (Outlet) x 1
・Pixel Bearing x 2
・Snow Tire Pads (pair) x 2
・REWIND 10th Anniversary Limited Pouch -or- Tote Bag (random) x 1

*Color will be chosen randomly.

The CLYW plastic model Big Dipper is one of the best performing yo-yos among current plastic models. The one in the anniversary box is Fool’s Gold (the name for outlet models at CLYW), but it is only because of a slight vibe or small color imperfection. There are no large play issues. Big Dipper is also Zach Gormley’s signature model!

CLYW created the high performance “Pixel Bearing” with iYoYo. We included 2 of them and 2 pairs of replacement Snow Tire Pads. Of course, you can use Pixel Bearings with any other C size bearing yo-yos!

Finally, the box comes with one special pouch or tote bag made specially for REWIND’s 10th Anniversary.

The Anniversary Box price will be $134.99, which is the same as the suggested retail price for Wish, but comes with a bunch of extra goodies. What a deal!

We will release the box at around 8:30 pm on August 5 (Japan Time).

The promotional video for Wish by Zach Gormley will be released soon. Please follow CLYW’s social media if you have not yet. You don’t want to miss this one!

5A May! Candy Dice Presents “Let’s Try Counterweight” Campaign 2020 #5Ayoyo

Every year yo-yo players celebrate May, the 5th month of the year, as “5A May” to promote the 5A (counterweight, freehand) play style. Counterweight style has a unique trick feeling that comes from the balance between the weight and yo-yo. We would love it for you to give the 5A style a try, especially in the month of May!

Thus, our Candy Dice Presents “Let’s Try Counterweight” Campaign!

Candy Dice is a counterweight brand produced by Shingo “Terry” Terada, the 2001 X Division World Champion, and our Shibuya Tokyo Store Manager.

PYRO X is coming out on Dec. 16! Blue Pyro is back as a REWIND exclusive!

PYRO X is coming out on Dec. 16!

Pyro is the legendary hspin yo-yo which is easily considered to be one of the most striking and loved yo-yos in modern yo-yo history.

If you have been playing yo-yo for more than 15 years, we can bet you’ll remember the days everyone was talking about this yo-yo. At competitions, most players were using YoYoJam metal-rim yo-yos, and full metal yo-yos were a very uncommon sight. Augie Fash had just won US Nationals with his Dif-e-Yo Bare Bones, and besides the Tom Kuhn SB-II, the original classic metal yo-yo, not many people could name any metal yo-yos. Suddenly, hspin, a maker from Switzerland came from out of nowhere to change the yo-yo scene with their great designs, concepts and yo-yo playability.

Back then, everyone wanted a Pyro. Some lucky players owned more than one! Even nowadays, Pyro is thought of as one of the must-have models, and people still want one to call their own. The time has come to re-introduce it to the world. Welcome back Pyro! A huge thanks is in order to Dave Geigle, Hadrien, and Chris for making this happen!

How is the play feel? It feels like Pyro, but plays like 2020. Trust Hadrien.

Blue Pyro is back as a REWIND exclusive!

If you remember Pyro from back in the day, you might name this blue/light blue Pyro as one of your most wanted colors at the time. In fact, you probably still want this color.

If you know the original Pyro design, you can tell how close this new design is to the original. We respect hspin, we respect the original Pyro, and we respect the original Blue Pyro background.

<<14 is “Rewinding you back 14 years.” Feel metal yo-yo history for yourself and celebrate the rebirth of this legendary blue Pyro!

First ever Iwakura City Kids Yo-Yo Contest!

Iwakura City and REWIND partnered up to organize a city-wide kids event on March 21.

Many local kids and parents showed up and enjoyed a day with yo-yo!

REWIND has been working together with Iwakura City, our hometown, to promote yo-yo as one of the many charms of the city itself.

Last year, we gave away Sakura Stream yo-yos to all the 4th grade students in Iwakura and had a performance and teaching session in all five elementary schools in the city.

*Sakura Stream is the yo-yo we developed and produced with Iwakura city and Kurimoto, a plastic molding company in Iwakura.

This event is one program of the “Yo-Yo Town, Iwakura” Project.

Everyone enjoyed many yo-yo games and activities.

We had a teaching session. There were many first-timers there and they enjoyed their first yo-yo experience.

With the experienced kids, we practiced basic moves through mini games.

Iwakura City Mayor, Katsurao Kubota, came and gave a speech.

Team battle! Team representatives competed on stage and showed off their yo-yo skills.

Parents fight! Kids were so excited to cheer on their own parents who were on their same team.

In the main division, Basic Compulsory Tricks, we had three kids tie and had a tie breaker!

Koki Iwata won the main game! He didn’t do well in the last two contests (2018 Japan Junior and 2019 Central Japan), so he finally did it on his third try! Congratulations!

On top of that, Koki’s father also won Throwdown Sudden-death. Koki’s younger brother also won Throwdown Sudden-death. All three won their games!

There were some kids who did well and some who didn’t, but everyone enjoyed and showed their smiles at the end!

It was our first contest specifically for this age group, but thanks to all the participants’ and staff’s help, we could have a successful event. Thank you!

Also, big thanks to Iwakura City and Sightseeing Committee, and Iwakura Rotary Club for funding this event.

Next season we will also have a lot of programs and events coming to promote our own city as “Yo-Yo Town, Iwakura.”

Our goal is for everyone in the city to be able to play yo-yo!


2017 Japan National will have “International Open Freestyle”

JYYF (Japan Yo-Yo Federation) just announced they will have a new division, “International Open Freestyle” at 2017 Japan National Yo-Yo Contest (JN).

 

The 2017 Japan National Yo-Yo Contest will be held from June 17th to 18th at Sakura Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo.

This year marks the 19th annual Japan national yo-yo contest. During that time it has evolved from a small contest in a local community center with around 50 in attendance, to its current size of 600-800 in professional convention halls and auditoriums throughout Japan in recent years. JN is arguably one of the most competitive yo-yo contests in the world, which makes it an incredibly exciting event to attend in-person. Among those fighting for this year’s five national titles are many former and current national and world champions. See your heroes up close and personal and cheer them on for the win!

This year, in addition to the 1-5A Championship Divisions, Women’s, Over 40, Team, and Compulsory Trick divisions, we are happy to announce a brand new International Open Freestyle (IOF) division! This division is open only to players who are not Japanese citizens, nor residents of Japan, so if you’re visiting for JN this is your chance to share the stage with top Japanese players and perform in front of one of the best yo-yo audiences in the world.

Whether you’re ready to get in on the action, or just want to cheer on and interact with your favorite players, we warmly invite you to attend the 2017 Japan National Yo-Yo Contest. See you in Tokyo!
