Yoyo Trick Tutorial – Boba Straw

Boba Straw is a fun Yoyo Trick I came up with a long time ago. The reason I called it Boba Straw is because there is a section of the trick in the beginning where the yoyo looks like a straw jabbing a boba cup. Also a lot of people I have on snap chat post videos of them jabbing their straws into their cups. So I thought it would be funny to name a trick after them.

In this video, I used the prototype of the collaboration yoyo I am doing with TOPYO.  For the string I used the newly released Buddha XL from YoyoBestBuy.

In this yoyo trick tutorial video, I perform the complete combo at a slower pace.  This is to show the details of the various elements of the trick.  The viewpoint starts of from the audience point of view.

I then switch to the yoyoers point of view.  This is the meat of the tutorial.  The pace of the trick is much slower and I have broken out the elements in steps.  From this viewpoint, you can see the intricacies of the trick.  You will see where to land the yoyo, what string and even what finger position to use to throughout the combo.

 

After the step by step yoyoers view point, I switch back to the audience view and execute the yoyo trick combo at its intended speed

The yoyo trick seems complex, but with this video, you should be able to follow the steps.  With practice, you will be able to add it to your combos.

Check out the tutorial video of the Yoyo Trick, Boba Straw. Please like, share, comment and subscribe. But above all this, please have fun!

Yoyo Unboxing – Duncan Haymaker X

In this video I unboxed the Duncan Haymaker X

Duncan really stepped up there game in my opinion. After playing with yoyos like the Duncan Imperial, Butterfly, or Metal drifter, I would’ve never expected them to make a yoyo this good.

Right out of the box the yoyo was dead smooth and could play any style that I want it to play whether it be speed, tech, horizontal, you name it. The bi-metal rings also made it very balanced and stable so that when playing horizontal or  any other type of play it will resist tilt. This is an excellent yoyo and it has become one of my personal favorites.

If you have $120 dollars lying around then I would highly recommend this yoyo.

Big thanks to my Kuya Brian from Duncan for sending me this, you’re the best.

Enjoy the unboxing!!!

 

Yoyo Tricks – TOPYO Silenus

In this promo, I showcased some of my tricks using the TOPYO Silenus

TOPYO yoyos at yoyonation.com

The TOPYO Silenus has easily become my favorite throw. It looks and plays just like a CLYW yoyo and its only $32 dollars. It has just the right amount of balance between techy style and speedy style. I highly recommend this extremely affordable yoyo 100%

The routine and choreography in this video was inspired by Yuki Nishisako’s finals performance at BAC 2017. This is what my final would’ve looked like had I made finals at National Futures 2017.

Yoyo Unboxing – Vosun EZspin

 

In this unboxing I unboxed the Vosun EZspin.

When I first opened this yoyo I thought it was a bi-metal but it turns out the shiny rings is just apart of the design of the yoyo. The whole yoyo is made out of 6061 aluminum. So in the video when I said “it has a lack of rim weight which is suprising” it’s actually not that surprising to me anymore because it’s not a bi-metal.

The diameter is very large while the width is very narrow. This is a feature that I dislike about some yoyos. However even though its has this feature, it is one of the best that I’ve played with with this feature under the YOYOFFICER Yacare. It would’ve been better if the shape of the yoyo was wider and more rounded.

As I said before, the yoyo lacked a bit of rim weight. The weight felt more towards the middle of the yoyo which was a bit odd. This would have been better if the yoyo’s weight was more toward the rims and a bit lighter.

Enjoy the unboxing!!!

 

 

Yoyo Unboxing/Review – OneDrop Dang 2

In this video, I unboxed and reviewed the OneDrop Dang 2.

When I first threw this yoyo, I noticed that the finish of the yoyo is a little strange. It doesn’t feel mat or glossy. Even though its metal, the feel reminds me of the feel of the MagicYoyo Skyva, CLYW Big Dipper, and the YOYOFFICER X-Point. While in play, the yoyo tends to hit my hand a lot because of the flat bearing and organic shape, and since it has that type of finish, it will try to keep rolling on my skin. The yoyo also tends to be uncontrollable at times because of the flat bearing. the bearing makes the yoyo tilt and respond because the string leans in to the response pads.

I recommend that when you get this yoyo, you change the flat bearing to avoid the yoyo tilting. I also recommend that you change the string that comes with it because it was very light and made it difficult to do whip tricks.

Overall, I recommend this yoyo as a starter 1a yoyo similar to the YoyoFactory DV888 yoyo.

Enjoy the video.

Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep#16 – YoyoRecreation POM Draupnir

In this episode of Throw Score I reviewed the YoyoRecreation POM Draupnir.

YoyoRecreation at yoyobestbuy.com

YoyoRecreation at yoyonation.com

In terms of playability this yoyo plays almost identical to the C3YoyoDesign Gamma Crash. It plays fast, it is very light, and it is good for horizontal play. The only difference between the two yoyos was the grinds.

The only score that was different than the Gamma Crash was the finger spin. pom The thumb grinds however is actually the same as the Gamma Crash. If that standard was in the Gamma Crash’s throw score, it wouldn’t have gotten a five so really the only difference is the finger spin. In the face of the yoyo there is a metal cylinder that sticks out from the center that makes your finger move around it rapidly which makes the finger spin very difficult.

Other than that this yoyo is awesome for speed and horizontal play.

Enjoy the review.
