In this episode of Throw Score I reviewed the TopYo Colossusiii.
After playing with this yoyo, I have come to the conclusion that it is the most floaty yoyo that I have ever played with. It’s a tad undersized and on top of that it is very light. There were a few specific things about this yoyo that kept it from being a five.
First off, the design of the yoyo is undersized. Usually I don’t mind undersized yoyos, but the width has to be wider so that you can grind easier and it also has to be heavy so that the yoyo doesn’t play as small as it actually is. So the diameter would be smaller but the width and weight would be generally the same. However on this yoyo, everything got smaller. The diameter, the width, and the weight. That made the yoyo a little to light and floaty. It would’ve been better if the yoyo was wider and heavier.
Another problem I had with this yoyo were grinds. Since the whole yoyo got smaller, the width was very narrow which made it a little difficult to do finger grinds. Also, since the face of the yoyo is glossy, the yoyo kept gripping my skin when I tried to do talon grinds. It would have been better if the whole yoyo had a mat finish instead of the main gap having a mat finish while the face of the yoyo was glossy.
So overall, I highly recommend this yoyo to any player who’s style is very floaty, players with small hands, and anyone who is willing to try something new.
