Yoyo Unboxing – C3YoyoDesign Bastet

48

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

48

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

48

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

MagicYoyo Metal Skyva at yoyobestbuy.com 

MagicYoyo Metal Skyva at yoyonation.com

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.
