When I first threw this yoyo, I noticed that it had a little vibe and that it burned to grind. While in play though, it handled my tricks and combos very well. since it was light for it size and oversized, it was really good for speed combos. It pretty much was just like the YoyoRecreation POM Diffusion. Horizontal finger grinds on this yoyo were very good because the face was very wide and con-caved towards the center. Also, I noticed that since the size was so big, it was very easy to hit whip tricks because the yoyo can catch the string very easily.
Overall, the YoyoRecreation POM Gargantua is a yoyo that is great at speed and catching the yoyo in whip tricks because of its size. This is definitely a yoyo you should have in your collection and I highly recommend it.
This video is the Yoyo unboxing of the MagicYoyo Katana by LorenzYo Cubing.
The MagicYoyo Katana is a bi-metal H shaped yoyo that is a lot of fun. it comes with a golden bearing that looks and feel legit when at play.
My first impressions right out of the box is the yoyo is dead smooth. The bearing sounds pretty cool, spins really fast and is of great quality.
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. Because of the shape, horizontal tricks are awesome with this throw.
MagicYoyo has definitely stepped up their game. The quality of the yoyos they produce today is much improved compared to earlier models. On the MagicYoyo Katana, the response is good. It does not snag, nor respond late. It feel just right.
Executing tricks and hitting binds on this yoyo is really cool. I highly recommend the MagicYoyo Katana. It is a fun bi-metal yoyo of great quality.

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.
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.
This episode of Throw Score Yoyo Reviews is on the YOYOFFICER YACARE.
After playing with the YOYOFFICER Yacare for a week, it has quickly become one of my favorite throws. This yoyo is designed to be speedy and flawless at finger spins. It is super smooth with a glossy finish that almost feels like it is bead blasted. The throw is light and the shape is angular which makes it great for speed and horizontal tricks as well.
Best of all is the value you get from this yoyo. The price is about $40 but the yoyo quality and playability is well above its price range.
If your play style is speedy and you do a lot of horizontal tricks, including finger spins, you will be happy with this awesome throw from YOYOFFICER.
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 –
“100 Yoyos, 10 Color Ways, 1 Time Run,” that is what sums up YoyoFreaks Hashtag. This is something you can get at yoyobestbuy.
With the plethora of yoyo companies and yoyo models out there, YoyoFreaks is doing something different, quality versus quantity. There are only 100 yoyos made of this series. So when they are gone, they are gone.
This yoyo is a miniature sized bi-metal yoyo that is amazing at fingerspins. The yoyo is bead blasted to a really smooth texture. In fact the yoyo feels dead smooth. The yoyo is light but heavy for a mini yoyo. All Grinds on this yoyo are amazing!!!
YoyoFreaks Hashtag feels really good while at play. It is excellent at speedy and techy type tricks. Despite it’s size, the yoyo can play well according to any style of play you do, although horizontal is a little difficult because of it’s size. Overall, I highly recommend this yoyo and in my opinion, it is the best miniature sized yoyo out there right now. Get one before it’s gone!!!
Here now is the Throw Score of Yoyo Freaks Hashtag:
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.
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.
Finally I got my hands on yet another CLYW yoyo masterpiece, the CLYW Manatee. JD Steele at YoyoBestBuy let me borrow the Manatee to try it out and to give it a Throw Score review. My original intent was to return it after the review but I decided to keep it after throwing it around for about a week.
The Manatee is very smooth right out of the box. It leans on the heavier side at 67 grams. It is a metal yoyo with a bead blasted finish. The color way is super cool. I was able to get the teal and red blend but when it spins, the yoyo actually looks like gun metal gray.
I have scored the yoyo in the video below and have laid out the total scores at the bottom of this web page. I added a new category that scores the yoyo’s stability while at play. I simply put a range between Floaty and Stable. The higher the number the more stable and the lower the number the more floaty the yoyo feels.
The CLYW Manatee is easily a “goto” yoyo. I highly recommend it to any serious yoyo player. It is a must have.
Check out the Throw Score video of the CLYW Manatee and let me know what you think.
The Skyva is very smooth right out of the box. It leans on the heavy side at 66.5 grams. Since it is plastic, the yoyo does not score well on Finger Grinds and Talon Grinds. But this yoyo was not designed for those trick elements in particular. The Luftverk MagicYoyo Skyva is all about Finger Spin. And the design of the throw is spot on for that trick element. Horizontal play is excellent using the Skyva. In the video I executed the Harrison Hurricane and the yoyo felt awesome.
This is Throw is a must have in any Yoyoers collection. At $20 it is an excellent buy that will give you so much joy as you finger spin and spin and spin and spin…
