WASSUP Y’ALL!!! In this video, I reviewed Keiran Cooper’s signature yoyo, the SFyoyos Cadence.

I’ll keep this short and sweet. Three words. A, MA, ZING!!! Literally, this yoyo can handle almost any type of trick you can throw at with ease. While in play, it has a very nimble and bouncy feel, but still very stable. This yoyo can and will definitely hold it’s own and will not tilt at all. Very easily maneuverable and cooperative. The simple wide open shape makes it easy for tech, rejection, and slack tricks and it’s angularness makes it AWESOME for speed and overall extreme tricks, after all, that is what Keiran is known for.

All grinds on this yoyo are flawless. The open wing shape with the mat finish makes it perfect for regular finger grinds. The simple face con-caved into the center makes it great for finger spins. And the nice inner ledge makes it great for both talon and thumb grinds.

My only problem with this yoyo is that the response was a bit weak, even when I put new pads in, but maybe that’s just me, let me know.

Overall, this is an amazing mono-metal from SFyoyos and I highly recommend it if you have the $50 laying around.

ENJOY THE VIDEO!!!

ASMR Yoyo Tricks (no talking)

Okay so I know what you’re thinking. “Are you serious, an ASMR video???” Well these clips were supposed to be used for a different video but unfortunately I still do not have the audio I need for that video, but I won’t tell you what that video is yet incase it is still going to happen.

Anyways, I always found that the sound of a smooth spinning yoyo was satisfying. So here you go!!! A video of just yoyo tricks with no talking and no music.

HOPE YOU ENJOY!!!

Yoyo Review – SF Yoyos Ceasefire

SUP Y’ALL!!! IN honor of my good friend Collin Ellingson going away to Paraguay for two years, I finally reviewed the yoyo I was supposed to review over a year ago (sorry SF), Collin and Alec Jones’s co-signature yoyo, the SFYoyos Ceasefire!!!

SF Ceasefire on SFyoyos.com

SF Ceasefire on YoyoExpert.com

 

The yoyo, while in play, has a very solid, heavy feel to it. It has a lot of well balanced rim weight along with a little bit of center weight. This makes the yoyo good for extremely techy and slacks tricks. This solid feel also makes the yoyo good for hoppy meta tricks (brentstoles, hooks, chopsticks, etc.). Considering Collin and Alec’s style, the design is perfect for these types of tricks.

All types of grinds execute very nicely with this yoyo. The wide and hollow shape along with the mat finish makes finger grinds very comfortable, balanced, and long lasting. Even though the stainless steel rings are on the inner rim of the face, talon and thumb grinds are surprisingly smooth on this yoyo considering how most inner rim bi-metal yoyos have a very glossy feel on the rings which make talon and thumb grinds feel unpleasant. Last but not least, finger spins are very nice on this yoyo as well.

Overall the SF Yoyos Ceasefire is a great yoyo for dense techy, slack, and meta style players and I highly recommend you add it to your yoyo collection.

Collin I wish you all the best and I hope to see you again in two years!!!

Enjoy the video!!!

Yoyo Review: MagicYoyo Z01 Focus

Sup y’all it’s Lorenzo!!! In this video I reviewed the new bi-metal from MagicYoyo, the Z01 Focus!!!

Purchase this yoyo on MagicYoyo’s Website

Now, this wouldn’t be a LorenzYo Cubing video without some comedy and entertainment!!! “What’s this video’s segment Lorenzo?” , WELL I’M GLAD YOU ASKED!!!

Before I tell you that, let me explain WHY I made this segment. So if you don’t already know, Youtube has created a new policy supposedly based on a federal law, which is kind of strange to me since they only created this policy NOW. But basically, this new policy enforces Youtubers to place either their WHOLE channel, or every individual video into either the “for kids” or the “for adults” category. Now you may be asking “what’s so wrong about that?”. Well in summary, only the “adult” content can make revenue while the “kid friendly” content can’t, which very much bothers me since most of the popular “adult” channels today support “youtube drama” and “beef” with others.

THIS BRINGS ME TO WHAT THE ENTERTAINMENT SEGMENT OF THIS EPISODE IS!!!

As a JOKE, I made parodies of TWO POLAR OPPOSITE shows on television and on the internet. The video starts off with a parody intro to one of the most beloved kid friendly shows on television, “Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood” which is TV Y7. THIS NEW show is called “A RAN DOM Neighborhood” which the intro indicates is TV MA, again as a JOKE, with Geoffery Quilates (RAN DOM 2) doing his version of the iconic Mr. Rodger’s change of clothes choreography. ALL MUSIC for this intro was arranged and recorded by us two.

Right after the intro is another parody segment of a typical “Filthy Frank style” video with Daniel Daligcon (RAN DOM 1) as the host doing his impression of him. If many of you don’t know, Filthy Frank is a very DANK and MEME-ish channel, definitely not for kids, but super funny (at least to me). Some of you may know him NOW as “Joji” since he is now currently a song artist.

After this long intro I FINALLY appear in this video. Before the actual review of the yoyo, I explain a little behind the scenes of the trick video I made for this yoyo. Basically, there was different audio (a different version/cover of “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish” to the original cut which actual went better to the video than what is out right now. But due to some copyright claims I had to change the audio which led to me having to go through the Youtube copyright claim dispute process, WHICH WORKED!!!

A N Y W A Y S, HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS ON THE MAGICYOYO Z01 FOCUS!!!

Purchase the Golden Bearing I used to replace this bearing on YoyoBestbuy

The MagicYoyoZ01 Focus is the latest bi-metal yoyo released in 2019 by the company. First off, this yoyo is INSANELY CHEAP for a bi-metal standing at only $39, but the quality definitely exceeds that price point.

This yoyo, by far, is my current all-time favorite MagicYoyo throw at the moment, it has even become my go-to pocket throw. Let me explain why!!!

First of all, in terms of playability and feel, the yoyo is definitely a tad more toward the lighter side(not too much), but the yoyo is not necessarily floaty. The stainless steel rims on the sides of the yoyo stabilize the spin which keeps it from being floaty. So what you have is a very nice all-around yoyo. Speed and horizontal are no problem and the comfortable even shape makes it great for rejections, tech, and slack.

The shape of this bi-metal is definitely one of my favorite shapes. Other yoyos with this shape are the YoyOfficer Rave, the Ozhiriz Sphinx, and the MagicYoyo Vulfgang. 

Regular finger grinds are no problem. Talon grinds are great because the way this yoyo was designed, the bi-metal rims don’t go into the inner – face of the yoyo, so the inner – rims are smooth and anodized aluminum. Finger spins on the other hand are only okay since the yoyo has scratchy laser engravings on the face.

OVERALL, the MagicYoyo Z01 Focus is an almost perfect, cheap, all around yoyo that should be in everyone’s collection and I highly recommend it!!!

ENJOY THE VIDEO!!!

 

Yoyo Tricks – MagicYoyo Z01 Focus (ft. Bad Guy by Billie Ellish cover)

HA!!!!!! I TRICKED YOU!!! (you’ll understand if you got to this page via the actual video description.)

BUT ANYWAYS, In this video I showcased a choreographed routine (on yoyo of course) to a COVER of “Bad Guy” by Billie Ellish with the NEW MagicYoyo Z01 Focus.

Purchase this Yoyo on GoMagicYoyo.com

Now QUICK story. The original video had the “We Are Number One” edit version of the song. Somebody copyright claimed my video, and I should’ve expected it since it sounded so similar to the original. And so I tried picking something TOTALLY different. I chose a strings cover of Bad Guy(like violins and cellos) and edited the lyrics into it. It sounded totally weird, I actually kept the ending of the song in the final version, but I was SURE I wasn’t going to get claimed. And then guess what… YUP. So I once again went searching and found a MALE cover of the song, it sounded a lot different and was royalty free since it wasn’t the original, but it still got claimed. HOWEVER, the person who claimed it wasn’t the song writer, OR the person who sung the cover. And so I went through the whole dispute process on YouTube and stated that exact sentence. The next day I got an email from YouTube saying that the claimed released the claim!!!! Just thought I’d share that HAHA take from it what you please.

Anyways, make sure to also read and watch my review of this Yoyo(when it comes out). But I’ll tell you this, this yoyo BY FAR, is the best MagicYoyo throw that I’ve played with.

ENJOY THE VIDEO!!!

Yoyo Tricks – TopYo Meta

In this video I show cased some of my yoyo tricks with my signature yoyo the TopYo Meta!!!

///TopYo//Meta\\LYC\\\ at YoyoBestBuy

///TopYo//Meta\\LYC\\\ at Ozhiriz.com

Having a signature yoyo is something that I’ve dreamed of having ever since I started yo-yoing. After getting sponsored by TopYo, which is also something I’ve always wanted, I thought to myself “What if did a collaboration design to make a yoyo that’s just right for me?” and sure enough, the owner was very open to the idea!!! I took some of my favorite yoyos and processed what I liked about each of them so that I can have one yoyo with all their traits. And then after three prototypes, my signature was born!!!

///TopYo//Meta\\LYC\\\ at Yoyo Store Rewind

After I had the prototypes in my hand, I had to come up with a name for this yoyo. While watching a Scales Collective podcast, I kept hearing them say the word “meta” over and over again. So I texted Keiran Cooper and asked him what the word meta means. He told me that it’s a term most gamers use which is ” a strategy that the majority uses to win” and I thought to myself “that’s what I want my yoyo to be, a yoyo that people use to win” hence, outcome the TopYo Meta.

///TopYo//Meta\\LYC\\\ at YJYOYO

Thank you so much TopYo for making this yoyo possible and I am so proud to say that I am apart of the team!!!

Besides function, TopYo and I discussed the quality of the yo-yo.  We wanted the it to be beautiful, like a piece of art.  The surface has to be smooth.  We wanted it to be glossy yet will not stick to your skin when playing.  The Meta has a sand blasted feel, but has a finish similar to Yo-yo’s two to three times the price.

The TopYo Meta is a solid design.  It has a powerful feel while at play.  This is due to the emphasis on the rim weight.  That means, it will spin to your heart’s desire.  To balance out the rim weight, a great deal of attention was dedicated to the shape and weight in the middle as well.  In fact, thorough testing and tweaks were made from the conceptual design all the way to the various prototypes (Mark I, II and III).
