Ask @CLYWOfficial:

Hey I saw just now that Harrison plays League of Legends? Can you ask if he plays Ranked and what rank is he? Ya know, nerd stuff.

I don’t really play league of legends anymore, but when I did I made it to silver 3 and I played a lot of Gnar. -Harrison

Do you guys plan on ever making a design from the ground up for 7075 aluminium? (Did you ever make a yoyo specifically for 7075 aside from the seven summits?)

Amun Chawla
No plans. There really isn't any demand for it, and we have too much other stuff on deck. -Steve

What kind of finish do you use on the Chinese made CLYW yoyos? (like on the manatee and the peak 2) it's my favourite finish of any yoyos out there!

Amun Chawla
We just asked them for a matte finish, and when we got samples we went back and forth a bit with adjustments (more rough, more smooth, just right) until they got it where we wanted it, and then we told them to just do everything like that! We still tweak it a little here and there. As for process...no idea. I never asked. As long as the result is where I want it, I'm happy. -Steve

Not that it makes any difference, but someone asked me recent;y, Where was the Ti Peak made? I never could find a clear answer anywhere. Again, it does not matter, I LOVE that throw. Thanks again!

It was made in China, at the same factory that Luftverk normally uses. -Steve

How do you think of the idea of JOYC? Do you think there should have comtests like that in the US as well?

I didn't see much of anything from those contests, and didn't seem like many people turned up for them? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I do think we need more "non-system" contests, that don't seed to anything else. Stand-alone stuff. That's why André and I started up the Triple Crown, but then we kept having babies and it killed our summers for too long to maintain it. Whoops.
I really would love to fire up Triple Crown again, just hard to find time. I think rebooting it as a smaller 1A-Only contest, but still doing three events per year, would be pretty awesome. Just have to work it out with André and figure out how to get it started again with our increasingly busy schedules. -Steve

I'm planning to invest in a DSLR for to make some short films and videos but the spec sheets look very confusing to me sometimes. What would you say are the most important aspects to look for in a DSLR for filming purposes?

Hey I've been yoyoing for almost four years , and I haven't really progressed as much as I want to. I'm going to practice as much more now since I have the tine to do so now since I'm out of school. How do I practice effectively and how do you stand out with all these great yoyoers around today? TY!

Every moves at their own speed...sometimes you just need a reboot, or a big dose of inspiration. My biggest leaps when I first started playing came from hanging out not with other yoyo players, but with other creatives in different fields. Jugglers, artists, sculptors, etc. Looking at their creations and then drawing parallels between what they were doing and what I was doing. Sometimes even just trying to approximate their creations but with a yoyo, just to see if I could get close.
Find what inspires you, inside or outside of yoyoing, and embrace it and make it your own. Also, stock up on string/bearings/pads for whatever you use the most so you never run out. -Steve

What was the reasoning behind the Ti Peak shipping with a flat bearing? I feel like something a little more premium would have fitted better

It was designed with a lot of the original Peak's play values in mind, and shipping with a flat bearing just felt appropriate to us. Thinks like the patch, the sticker, the wood insert...these are decisions we made with "premium quality" in mind. The flat bearing? That was totally nostalgia. :) -Steve
