A few months ago, we sent a few Executive prototypes to some friends and peers to get their feedback. They've shared so much great stuff on Instagram that I had to share some of it here.
Here's one of Ed Haponik's shots. He also had some great feedback for us: "The Executive is a diminutive GIANT, taking attributes I love about the ProYo Ace, Renegade, and classic Anti-Yo's and compressing them into a refined, take-anywhere design which PLAYS. One of the most purely fun yoyo's I've used in years!"
And a fun video by Ed too.
Drew Tetz shared this photo of an Executive and one of his lasercut creations. He also added "The Executive seriously the most fun i've had with a mini, after a while i could not remember whether or not i was a giant, highly recommended."
Shawn Garcia, aka YoToyImages, shared this great video above.
Shawn also shot a bunch of the great product photos we used for this Kickstarter. Here is one of his extra shots, which shows an Executive beside a $1 coin.
Here's one of Ernest's shots of the original 3 prototypes.
I couldn't wait to send one to Steve from Spyy Yo-Yos. He said "It takes me back to the days of the Custom Bearing Reactor with its proportions, but has killer modern playability."
Takeshi Kamisato shared some great videos too, along with this feedback "The Executive by is awesome for thumb mount stuff �� I'm not the best at thumb mount stuff, but this undersized yoyo plays like a regular sized yoyo which makes for awesome thumb mount playability �"
Another gem from Takeshi.
Here is some video of Michael Ferdico doing horizontal tricks with an Executive (on his first throw).
Ernest caught some footage of Guy Wright tossing one too.
Here's Paul Dang in the One Drop offices in Eugene, OR. I asked if he thought he could do a finger grind with The Executive and this was his first attempt.
You can see more videos and photos on Instagram with the #executiveyoyo hashtag. I can't wait until you guys get to share your videos on Instagram too!
