Please say hi to Quentin and Wilson for me. Met both at Marines 2019. Hope someone gets Quentin's yoyo act on video. He's quite the showman.

I was just watching the live feed. There is a video running on stage with some ads. One of them had text that was foreign so I couldn’t read but had a short video of a blue spin top that the person was able to “squeeze” like it was some type of rubber material. Are these at the contest? Anyone know anything about it?

hi all ! Salùde de Corsica !

first and foremost , I want to thank Jorge and Mike for being our live-reporters ;)
the corkscrew contest seems to have been memorable, and the photo with spectators is fabulous
I hear of a newcomer ,not a rookie at all ,the well-named:Beau Besançon
his ancestors must have been from the Jura region: does he still have a connection with France ?
bravo for the sports ladder ! its a giant step to freestyling.
I hear the live stream will be paying ? even 5 bucks looks like a total swindle!i've never seen that in any sport: snooker,darts,polo,pétanque,surf,kite etc..
tonite will be the battle!i wish i was there with Ludo ,Emma and Mermouille to show you the marine-style


so long !

please hello cuper,wilson,taka and family,mike,jose,mark,chris,quentin etc for me


 take it easy at any and all times  >:D//)=//burp
have fun !

I want one, too! We first saw the squishy blue top at http://www.ta0.com/forum/index.php/topic,4536.msg62224.html#msg62224

Don't know that it's been discussed elsewhere.

Ahh I missed that! That’s definitely the one I saw on the video. Jorge must have had it. The text on the video was Japanese I think and Taka was in the tops room, I wonder if rewind is going to carry them?

The blue top is one of my thingiverse uploaded tops . Jorge was experimenting with flexible material with them. We talked about it on another thread. It's cool and something I have been curious about. Jorge took the first steps.

after reading that thread it makes sense now. I wonder why it was on the screen with the Japanese text though. I’m really curious what the text says.

Those are Taka's fingers squeezing it  ;D The feed also had Taka spinning the toilet seat. The sponsor of the feed is a Japanese company and they must have grabbed some uploads from Taka.

I'm sorry you left, Vegabond, before I could take your photo with Figaro or give you a medal.
Thanks a lot for donating the STB2.5 as a prize for freestyle!
