Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep#7 – CLYW Manatee

46

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.
