In summer 2013 Yoyofactory sent out a release email for a new yoyo called Shutter.
The release stated this:
“Gentry Stein has not done it all. He doesn’t have a room full of trophies. He doesn’t have a National title. This is what keeps him the hungriest, most committed yoyo player on the planet. His tricks and freestyles are on point, with undoubtable style. His day just hasn’t come yet…but when it does, he will be ready….
…..It takes more than a great yoyo to be a champion, but a great yo-yo is something every champion needs.”
In 2014 Gentry Stein became World Yoyo Champion, then again in 2019. Amazing story of an amazing player. Congratulations Gentry!
