Yoyo Unboxing – TopYo Quantum

46

Just got 5 of the latest yoyos from YoyoBestbuy.  This video shows the first yoyo unboxing of the bunch. The yoyo is the Quantum by Topyo.  It is a bi-metal Yoyo and is considered a budget yoyo because of the price.

My first impression of this yoyo out of the box is sheer wow!  Right out of the box, I took this yoyo through paces of various yoyo tricks and combos.  It feels amazing to play with.  The bearing feels smooth.  The yoyo feels good in my hand and excellent on the throw.  I also geeked out about the color being pink, it is really cool.

If you ever have problems with landing tricks and need a yoyo to just power through your combos, I think this is worth checking out.  Although I will still do a more comprehensive review, my initial verdict of this yoyo by TopYo is “competition yoyo worthy.”

Check out the unboxing video and let me know what you think.

Rubiks Cube – Average of 5 Solves Dayan Zhanchi 3×3

46

It has been quite a while since I have exercised my speed cubing skills.  But I cannot forget where I started.  So here goes my first video of Average of 5 Solves since October 31, 2015.  Wow, it has been a while 🙂

In the last Average of 5 Solves video, I used the Moyu Weilong v.2.  My average was 17.49 seconds.  In this video I will be using the Dayan Zhanchi 3×3 cube seen below.

Let us see if I do better or worse.  I wonder how rusty I would be in doing this after a year and  4 months.

Yoyo Tricks Tutorial – Vanilla Mint

46

Thank Vanilla Mint is the trick I performed in the slow-mo video in a previous post Everything Is Cooler In Slow-mo Even Vanilla Mint.

In this tutorial I used yoyo named Expedition by BaseCamp.  The actual yoyo is here below:

In this yoyo trick tutorial, I perform the complete combo at a slower pace.  This is to show you the details of the various elements of the trick.  The viewpoint starts of from the audience point of view.

I then switch to the yoyoers point of view.  This is the meat of the tutorial.  The pace of the trick is much slower and I have broken out the elements in steps.  From this viewpoint, you can see the intricacies of the trick.  You will see where to land the yoyo, what string and even what finger position to use to throughout the combo.

After the step by step yoyoers view point, I switch back to the audience view and execute the yoyo trick combo at its intended speed

The yoyo trick seems complex, but with this video, you should be able to follow the steps.  With practice, you will be able to add it to your combos.

Have fun!

Yoyo Tricks – The Freshman

46

It is the first day of school.  I have my books, backpack, lunch, school clothes and yoyo.  You meet your teachers, find your classes and meet new friends as well as reunite with old ones.  Everything feels fresh, new and exciting.  This is the inspiration to the yoyo trick in the video.

I named the trick The Freshman because when I do the trick, it feels fresh, new, exciting and even a little cheeky, LOL.  Seriously, I looked at this video and thought to myself, I look like a freshman during his first day of school.

The yoyo in the video is a plastic yoyo by Yoyo Factory called the Yoyo Factory Protostar.
I like this yoyo because even though it is plastic, it plays like a metal yoyo.

LorenzyoCubing.com Launch

It is official, today February 12, 2017 the website is launched, http://lorenzyocubing.com .  It seems time flew fast.  Just a couple of years ago I started my youtube channel and now we launch an actual site on the internet.  Pretty cool indeed!

What better way to launch the site than a video.  This video is a way for me to introduce myself officially to the world.

It starts off by a quick introduction then I talk about how i got started with yoyo tricks.  I even shared my thoughts on what is important to get better at this hobby and advice for kids who wants to get started.

I brought my Duncan yoyo bag that day.  The bag contains my favorite yoyos.  It is hard to imagine that I started with the DV888 which I like.

But now I have many other advanced yoyos to play with and enjoy.  It is truly a blessing to be able to enjoy this sport.

Like my first video that launched my youtube channel, I shot this video with my Dad.  We were joined by his friends who were really awesome and was responsible for the awesome video.

The yoyo I used in this video to perform tricks is one of my favorite yoyos, the CLYW Orca. Here is the actual yoyo in 360.

Yoyo Tricks – Everything Is Cooler In Slow-mo even Vanilla Mint

This video is different from the ones we posted before.  We visited a friend of my Dad in his production studio and I was blown away.  Actually my Dad was blown away because between him and I, he is the one who geeks over video equipment 🙂

Latest yoyo releases at YoyoBestBuy

In the studio, we shot video of tricks from different angles and scenes but mostly outdoors.  This one was the only one we shot indoors.

The setup was fairly simple, there were two side lights and a black backdrop as the background.  At first I thought, hmmm this is different.  But it was not until I saw the video footage that made me realize how cool the shot was.

You know I cannot name yoyo tricks and in fact, I am one of those players that says it is just a combo.  But since this video is full of new things, lighting, background, indoor video footage, the music, I am going to name it.  Let me call this combo Vanilla Mint, because it is cool and refreshing like the breath mints sitting on my desk 🙂

My favorite mints sitting on my desk.

The trick itself is straight forward but technical in nature.  It involves string slack control, speed control, and finishes with a picture trick.  As if the shot was not cool enough, when I was editing it, I saw something that made it cooler, slow motion.

Check out the video and comment below.  Thanks!

Finally got the Magic Yoyo Stealth M04 from YoyoBestBuy and it is pretty cool.  I picked it up from the store and was so excited.  The yoyo comes in two color schemes, Greyscale Stealth Splash and an Ultra Violet Red Splash.

I ended up choosing the Greyscale Stealth Splash, which you will see in the video.

Even before leaving the store, I tried it out and was able to feel out the yoyo.  It felt good to hold and even better to play.  Check out the video I put together and if you want more information about the Magic Yoyo Stealth MO4 click on the link.

In this video, I am showing yoyo tricks using the Caribou Lodge Yoyo Works Orca or CLYW Orca.  I got this yoyo from YoyoBestBuy a while back.  Not sure they have it anymore, but check out the link for yourself.

The yoyo came in various cool colors with abstract patterns.  I got the gold one looks like the this below.

It looks pretty cool when you spin it because the red spaltter blends in with the gold.  Here is how mine looks when I spun it around that day.

The weather in Brentwood was great the day I shot the video.  So I took the Orca in the back yard and took it for a spin, performing yoyo tricks and combos.

I Can’t name Yoyo Tricks

46

 

After making my Yoyoer’s Point of View video, I realized that I didn’t have any videos showcasing any of my new tricks from the front view, so in this video, I am showcasing the tricks from my Yoyoer’s Point of View video, from the front point of view!!! The yoyo used was the YoyoFactory SHU-TA.

The reason I named this video I Can’t Name Yoyo Tricks is because most yoyoers make a ton of combos but when ever somebody asks them what they are called, they say “They don’t have names.” I’m one of those people.
