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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
So I’d totally tell you guys what I think about this yoyo, but there’s one problem, I DON’T KNOW HOW TO PLAY 4A!!!!!! The only thing I can say about this yoyo is that I was able to do a tricks and then get it back up to my hand. So I totally recommend it hahahaha. Sorry if you guys wanted a real review but I don’t know what to think or how to think about the performance of this yoyo. Maybe in the future when I get better at 4a I’ll be able to actually give a good review on this yoyo.
But for now enjoy this sadly real but very funny unboxing video of me failing at offspring haha. Hope you guys enjoy it.
In this unboxing I unboxed the C3YoyoDesign ReMaster Galaxy.
So what are my first impressions on the ReMaster Galaxy? Right off the bat it is VERY wide which makes it very easy to do whip tricks you may have trouble with. In my case, this yoyo helps me land Brent stole very easy. It also helped me carry out my horizontal tricks very easy since its so wide.

Besides the width, this yoyo has very excellent performance. It’s very light but rim weighted which makes it very good for speed and horizontal tricks. The wideness of the yoyo gives it a WIDE variety of grinds. It also isn’t half bad for finger spins as well since there is nothing interfering in the face of the yoyo.
If you are a techy player that does very complicated tricks, this may not be the right yoyo for you, since it is wide it can be difficult sometimes to land the yoyo on a very specific section of the string if you have complicated mounts.
This yoyo would be for the type of player who is speedy and extreme.
This yoyo has quickly become one of my favorite throws. It has just the right amount of floatiness and stableness to be and all around performance yoyo. Speedy play is awesome, techy style is not a problem, and it plays horizontal excellently.
The only design flaw I found in this yoyo was the inner cup. Since it was really flat, the yoyo swayed around in circles a lot while doing finger spins. If the inner cup was a little deeper with a slight concave, then finger spins on this yoyo would’ve been easier to do.
Overall, this yoyo is a high quality performance yoyo that carries out all styles beautifully. I highly recommend this yoyo.
When I first threw the yoyo, it was very smooth, but while testing the smoothness of the yoyo which involves placing your finger against it, I noticed that the yoyo was very glossy. So when I tried grinding, the yoyo kept rolling off my arm. So the only way I could grind without the yoyo rolling off was if I tilted my hand down a lot.
In terms of playability, the yoyo feels very powerful when you throw it down, so when you throw it you’ll feel a very heavy thud. It feels very bouncy when you land it on the string. It’s right in the middle of floaty and stable so it’s sort of an all around type of yoyo. Although since it’s so narrow, it’s very difficult to catch the yoyo sometimes while playing horizontal.
According to YoyoStoreRewind, the Yoyo “has the great balance of the Radius, but the smoothness of the Capless that gives it really sweet rejection tricks. That smoothness also lends itself to intense long combos.” It definitely has a unique feel to it.
This Yoyo would be a great buy if you are looking to try something new and unique.
