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.

Yoyo Unboxing – C3YoyoDesign Contrail

In this unboxing I unboxed the C3YoyoDesign Contrail.

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.

Yoyo Unboxing – C3YoyoDesign ReMaster Galaxy

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.

Throw Score Ep#15 – TopYo Empty

In this episode of Throw Score I reviewed the new Bi-Metal from TopYo, the Empty.

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.

Yoyo Unboxing – C3YoyoDesign Bastet

In this unboxing I unboxed the C3YoyoDesign Bastet.

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.

 

 

Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep#14 – TopYo Colossusiii

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.

Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep#14 – TopYo Impulse

In this episode of Throw Score I reviewed the TopYo Impulse.

After playing with the TopYo Impulse this throw has become one of my absolute favorites. I have yet to find any flaws in this yoyo. There are no parts of the design that interferes with grinds. The rim weight is evenly distributed and the yoyo has an even balance of a floaty to stable ratio, so it can handle speedy and techy tricks easily without a problem. This is definitely one of my favorite throws and I highly recommend it to everyone and all styles.

Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep#12 – YoyoRecreation Draupnir

In this episode of Throw Score I reviewed the YoyoRecreation Draupnir.

After playing with this yoyo I’ve noticed that this yoyo is awesome at speed and horizontal. No wonder why when people mention speed they always mention the YoyoRecreation Draupnir. There were only a few specific things about this yoyo that kept it from being a 5/5 throw.

The main thing that I had a problem with was the finish on the yoyo. It felt too much like a chalk board, to the extent that if I did any grinds that involved my finger nails such as finger spins and talon grinds, it would leave either dust marks, or particles of my finger nail. It felt a little too much like a piece of furniture.

The second thing about this yoyo that kept it from being a 5/5 yoyo is that it tends to snag a lot more than usual compared to other throws that I’ve played with. So sometimes when I’m doing a very techy combo, sometimes it will unexpectedly bind or snag in the middle of a trick.

I would say that if you are a hard chore speed player such as Iori Yamaki or Yuki Nishisako, then I would recommend this yoyo.

Throw Score Yoyo Review EP#11 – MagicYoyo Metal Skyva

In this episode of Throw Score, I reviewed the MagicYoyo Metal Skyva.

After playing with this yoyo I am amazed at how good this yoyo plays and am surprised that this is actually a MagicYoyo. The Plastic Skyva was okay but the metal version gave it abilities that the original didn’t, specifically finger grinds. This yoyo only had a few but very little flaws that kept it from being a 5/5 throw.

First off, while playing horizontally I noticed that it was a bit difficult to catch the yoyo on the string if I was for example doing a horizontal Eli hop. It was just a tad narrow and would’ve been better if it was a tad wider than it is. The second problem was the inner cup grinds, but I’m not talking about finger spins because those are perfect. I’m talking about talon and thumb grinds. The only ledge you really have to do those types of grinds is the section of the face where it starts leading in to the finger spin dimple. It is very rounded and far from the outer section in the diameter of the yoyo. This would’ve been better it the place where it starts leading into the dimple was closer to the outer section of the face and a bit flatter.

Other than that, the playability of this yoyo is fantastic. I highly recommend this yoyo to anyone who loved the original skyva.
