Video Slowcase: An Intimate Look at Chris Manic's Astrojax Skills in Slo-Mo!

Why slow case?  Because this video comes to you at a high framerate that's been slowed down so you can catch every detail of Chris Manic's performance.  

Straight out of NY circa 2008 when Larry Shaw, the inventor, invited some of the top players in the world to hang out, eat pizza, and showoff their skills.  Chris Manic, Cizrek, and Jason Simard made the trip where we all explored the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan to shoot some footage.  While we love shooting out in the open, our hunger to see Astrojax slowed down Matrix-style was satiated when Larry arranged to have quarter speed film footage shot in a New York film studio. Be looking for part 2 featuring Cizrek soon, but for now feast your eyes on what we captured!

On behalf of Astrojax fans worldwide, we'd like to wish
Chris Manic a Happy Birthday!

Video Throwback: ChrisMANIC

Video Showcase: Storing Your String Bud Astrojax

As far as skill-based toys go, you might say we're pretty fond of Astrojax.  Originally we were going to name the blog, but alas, it was taken and the original name rolls off the tongue pretty easily anyways. But as much as we love our Astrojax, what we love more is showing people how to get the absolute best experience with their own skill toys.  That's why today we're giving you this handy video guide to how best to wrap up your string bud Astrojax a 'la the MX Sport or Aqua Glow. Special thanks goes out to Joebro for this great idea. So kick back, relax-er, wait don't do that, then you can't play with your Astrojax!  Stand up, tune in, and get edumacated on how to stash your 'jax like a boss*!   *Editor's note- Josh, stop making outdated* references on the blog and replace 'boss' with 'pro' immediately. -Jim **Blogger's note- Jim, I'll stop making super-awesome references when you stop sleeping while the rest of us are working. -Awesome Josh.
