Yoyo Unboxing – Recess Komodo

In this video I unboxed the Recess Komodo.

Playing with this yoyo is very satisfying. It plays according to your style whether is is speed, tech, and generally hits your tricks very well. The only tricks that I have trouble with are horizontal tricks. Since the yoyo is zero wall and very v-shaped, it tends to wonder away from the horizontal axis.

Grinds are very good on this yoyo. The only thing that I would want to be different is the lazer engravings in the face of the yoyo. They make it sort of difficult to do horizontal finger spins because it gives your finger nail a scratchy feeling. If the lazer engravings weren’t there, finger spins would be a whole lot better.

Overall, I highly recommend this to be a fun yoyo in anyone’s collection.

here is the unboxing of the Recess Komodo –

When I first pulled the yoyo out of the box, the plastic is not like any other plastic yoyo that I’ve owned before. I felt like a piece of furniture. The yoyo also had a string on it ready to cut to my own height, that’s a plus!!! When I first threw the yoyo, it had a tiny bit of vibration and wasn’t that good for finger grinds because of the bulgy shape, similar to the YoyoFactory Replay Pro and The YoyoFactory Aviator 1 and 2. Although, it can do finger spins pretty well because of the gift concave space on the face of the yoyo.

I was a little disappointed with the limited ability to grind, but the playability totally made up for that!!! The yoyo hit my tricks pretty well and overall it is a fun yoyo and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try something new.

Yoyo Tricks Video – Spring Throwing featuring HanzYoyo

It is spring time in Brentwood and with the amount of rain we have had this winter, everything is blooming.  Which then trigger allergies for some who suffer from such including yours truly and HanzYoyo.  So what better way to alleviate ourselves of the symptoms than by taking Claritin, using Visine eyedrops and throwing yoyos around 🙂

In this video you will find me doing tricks together with my new friend HanzYoyo who is also a YouTuber.  I met Hanz at Cal State Yoyo Championships last April at Jack London Square in Oakland, CA.  After the event, we stayed in touch and found out that we lived within 20 minutes of each other.  So one day I called him up and invited him over to do this video collaboration.

In the video, HanzYoyo used the TopYo Quantum which you have seen me review before.

On my part, I used the CLYW Orca which is one of my favorite throws.

Yoyo Unboxing – CLYW Kayak

In this video, I unboxed Yuuki Spencer’s new signature yoyo the CLYW Kayak

So right out of the box this yoyo is dead smooth. on a scale of 1-10 of smoothness, it is a 20!!! Finger Grinds, not a problem. Talon Grinds, easy. Thumb Grinds, gimme a break. The only finger grind that is a little difficult is the horizontal finger grind. Even though there is a dimple in the center of the face, that whole section is elevated upward, when you do a finger spin, your finger will land on the side of the ledge. So finger spins on this yoyo are doable, but they’re not great.

This yoyo leans more to the stable and heavy side as opposed to floaty and light yoyos. Due to the yoyo’s zero wall, it really difficult to do speed combos and horizontal combos with. Techy style on the other hand is not a problem. If you watch Yuuki Spencer’s tricks and combos, he doesn’t do too much speed or horizontal, however he does do a lot of techy tricks that are at a normal speed. So you play like that, then this yoyo is right for you!!! Some other players that play tech at a normal speed – Zach Gormley, Harrizon Lee

Now here is the unboxing of the Caribou Lodge Kayak –

The newest YoyoFreaks Yoyo finally arrived and I thought that I would try it out by taking it outside!!! #HashtagPromo haha. So the YoyoFreaks Hashtag is a miniature sized bi-metal yoyo that is designed to be really good at fingerspins. Even though I have not done a ThrowScore, I can already say the performance of this yoyo is very very high.

The video is a trick video from the “Yoyoers” point of view using the YoyoFreaks Hashtag.  According to YoyoBestbuy.com, the yoyo will drop on May 17, 2017.  Remember there are only 100 of this series, it is a short run so do not miss this one.

Yoyo Unboxing – MagicYoyo Carpfin

Okay guys we are going through this cycle again because I have received six new yoyos from yoyobesbuy and I’m ready to start unboxing and reviewing these!!! In this unboxing I unboxed the new MagicYoyo Carpfin.

MagicYoyo Carpfin At YoyoBestBuy.com

MagicYoyo At Amazon.com

When I first took the yoyo out of the package I immediately noticed that there was some weight to the yoyo. I also noticed that the face of the yoyo looked just like the face of the YoyoFactory Shutter. When I first threw the yoyo, it was dead smooth. While playing with the yoyo, it is more on the heavier side. Even though I can keep a constant pace while doing tricks, it doesn’t carry out speed combos that well, because of the weight. I think that this yoyo was designed to do techy tricks at a constant pace, sort of similar to the styles of Yuuki Spencer and Zach Gormley.

Grinds on this yoyo are fine. The only grinds that I had trouble with were inner cup grinds for example talon and thumb grinds. The reason I had trouble with those was because the inner cup was glossy as opposed to the rest of the yoyo which is bead blasted. Since it is glossy, if you grab the inner cup with your skin, the yoyo will whirl around. I recommend that if you are going to to inner cup grinds then use mostly your fingernails so that the metal won’t snag on your fingers. horizontal finger grinds are okay because you already mostly use your fingernail when you do a finger spin.

The MagicYoyo Carpfin is a good yoyo for a player that does techy style tricks at a normal pace. Grinds are okay as long as you use mostly fingernail while doing inner cup grinds. Overall, I highly recommend this yoyo.
