TEAM YoYoJam was at the World Yo-Yo Contest and brought a high level of play.
YoYoJam launched the Atmosphere – signature series of 2004 World Champion Makoto Numagami which was received well and is sure to be a favorite in the YYJ line up.
Prototypes were launched of the Night Moves 5 (new design by owner Dale Bell). This yo-yo features a tough nickel plated body with beautiful gold coated rims.
And Johnnie DelValle is in the works on a new ALL METAL design – the ENEME. Similar shape to a tweaked X-ConVict this yo-yo is nearing production with a few changes from the one at this years contest. This is bound to be an all time classic in metal yo-yos!
YoYoJam also proudly invited a new team member – IAN JOHNSON out of Illinois who is a strong and Up-And-Coming 4A, 1A, and 5A player!
