Yoyo Tricks – TOPYO Silenus

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

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 – Ozhiriz Yoyos

In this unboxing, I unboxed three yoyozhiriz yoyos from Ozhiriz.

Yoyos at Ozhiriz

The yoyos that I unboxed were the yoyozhiriz Sphinx, Nephthis, and Clarent.

***the Vosun Vanquish and the yoyozhiris Clarent are same yoyo because it was a collaboration between the two companies.

HUGE thanks to Ozhiriz for sending me these yoyos they are super awesome especially the yoyozhiriz Sphinx. Throw Scores coming out soon.

Enjoy the unboxing!!!

 

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 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.

 

Yoyo Unboxing/Review – YoyoRecreation Sigtyr

In this video I unboxed and reviewed the YoyoRecreation Sigtyr.

So the YoyoRecreation Sigtyr is supposedly known as the techy version of the speedy yoyo the YoyoRecreation Draupnir . This yoyo lives up to that title perfectly. “So what exactly are the differences between the Draupnir and the Sigtyr?” you guys may ask.

The rims on the Sigtyr are a lot more thicker and heavier than the ones on the Draupnir. So the yoyo while in play is a lot more stable and has more spin time to carry out difficult and techy tricks. The response is also a lot less snaggy on the Sigtyr than the Draupnir. It is still very strong, but only strong enough to carry out technical or slacky binds, ones that are usually carried out during technical play opposed to speedy players doing very fast binds that require an even stronger response. The finish on this yoyo is also a lot less chalky than the Draupnir so that doing grinds that require your nails will feel smooth.

I highly recommend this yoyo to techy players only. Playing fast on this yoyo isn’t a very good choice. It is just to heavy with no float to go fast. Something I noticed about playing fast with this yoyo is that it takes a lot more exaggerated movement to go fast because it is just too heavy. It is also a little difficult to change directions quickly. While I was doing horizontal play, the yoyo would keep the momentum in one direction that made it very difficult to change it.

If you are a techy player with $200, get the Sigtyr. But if you are a speed player with $200, get the Draupnir.

Yoyo Tricks – TOP-YO UNPRLD Elimination

If you watched my Instagram livestream of me unboxing my new sponsorship package from TOP-YO, you would have seen that the new collaboration bi-metal yoyo from TOP-YO and UNPRLD the elimination was by far my favorite TOP-YO throw that I’ve ever gotten.

TOP-YO yoyos at yoyobestbuy.com

TOP-YO + UNPRLD ELimination at YoyoNation

The TOP-YO UNPRLD Elimination yoyo is a premium bi-metal yoyo designed for speedy play, and when I say speedy, I mean hard core SPEEDY. Other yoyos that have the same style of this type of play would be the UNPRLD Flash and the YoyoRecreation Draupnir and Sigtr. If any of those throws are your favorite already, I guarantee you would love this one. I loved it so much, I decided to make a promo video on it.

Enjoy!!!

Yoyo Tricks – YoyoFreaks #Pound

During the summer in the second week of June, JD asked if I wanted to take a prototype with me on vacation in Arizona and shoot some clips at the Grand Canyon. Of course I said “heck yeah!!!”. And the yoyo he gave me was a raw YoyoFreaks #Pound.

YoyoFreaks #Pound at yoyobestbuy.com

 

While we were at the Grand Canyon tour, every time we stopped somewhere my dad whipped out his camera and started recording me. During the video you may notice the beautiful scenery behind me being either the Grand Canyon, a trail, or the mountains close to the Grand Canyon.

Fun fact about this video, this was shot the day before I broke the ceiling fan light at the rental home we got in Arizona. You can see that video on my Instagram.

So the YoyoFreaks #Pound is the normal sized version of the YoyoFreaks Hashtag. I will make a review on this yoyo soon but for now I gotta say this is one of my most favorite throws.

I hope you enjoy the video as much as I loved filming it.
