Drew bends time & space (or at least planes) with the Moon.
Jarin, Takeshi, & Drew take the first two toys for a spin.
Drew powers through the responsive repeater “Loop Chop” on the Moon and (almost) seals the deal on a sawchuck bird lightning drop with the Flatpack Kendama.
so close to sealing the deal on that bird drop… and so close to the flatpack kendama release! a slight delay has pushed us back to early next week, we appreciate your patience & think it's worth the extra time to get it right. the first run of flatpack kendamas will be 100 pieces, cost $25, and be available on 44rpmtoys.com. stay tuned!
The Moon & Flatpack Kendama come packaged in record sleeves hand-screened by our very own Hank Freeman. Here’s a preview of the fronts.
Drew uses a moon to teach the fixed axle fundamental Trapeze Stall.
i've been thinkin' about doing some fixed axle instatutorials, but i fear that 15 seconds is too short 😑 here's an attempt at teaching a real foundational trick, trapeze stall. let me know if you have any questions and i'll try to help. transcript & tips to follow in the comments… yoyo used was a @44rpm moon
“throw a breakaway and bring it back around belly height. let the string hit your finger and softly land the yoyo in a trapeze stall. push out of the mount to restart the spin and catch” tips: — keep your throwhand slightly higher than your nonthrowhand — bend your knees and move your hands slightly together when the yoyo hits the string to soften the landing and give it enough slack to balance — after you dismount from the stall, the yoyo will be spinning frontstyle, keep that in mind. i like to add a pinwheel for a smoother catch.”
Drew laces some new school fixie tech and some advanced spacewalk technology on The Moon and the Flatpack Kendama.
