In this episode of throw score yoyo review, I reviewed the latest incarnation of the YoyoFreaks Your Mom in bi-metal, the YoyoFreaks Bi-Mom. This was the same yoyo in the unboxing video published earlier in my channel. The Yoyo was provided by YoyoBestBuy.
The YoyoFreaks Bi-Mom is a solid, stable yoyo. It is a bi-metal that has been beautifully crafted. Although it was sold out I a little over 24 hours, you can still see the specs at this special link above in YoyoBestBuy.
The Kimchi Kombo is a fun Yoyo Trick I came up with a long time ago. The truth is it did not even have a name until today. Since I just had Korean BBQ this week and Kimchi is a staple in the meal, I thought why not use it to name the yoyo trick. Just like the eating experience of Korean Barbecue with Kimchi of course, the yoyo trick is brief, spicy yet satisfying.
In this yoyo trick tutorial video, I perform the complete combo at a slower pace. This is to show 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.
Remember the review I did on one of Topyo’s solid performing yoyos, the Topyo Impulse. Well if you have become a believer in this quality value brand of throws, wait until you see how this yoyo just got a tad hotter. You have seen this in my Throw Talk Thursday. Now see the Topyo Impulse S up close.

If you watched my Instagram livestream of me unboxing my new sponsorship package from TOP-YO, you would have seen that the new collaboration bi-metal yoyo from TOP-YO and UNPRLD the elimination was by far my favorite TOP-YO throw that I’ve ever gotten.
The TOP-YO UNPRLD Elimination yoyo is a premium bi-metal yoyo designed for speedy play, and when I say speedy, I mean hard core SPEEDY. Other yoyos that have the same style of this type of play would be the UNPRLD Flash and the YoyoRecreation Draupnir and Sigtr. If any of those throws are your favorite already, I guarantee you would love this one. I loved it so much, I decided to make a promo video on it.
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.
When I first took this yoyo out of the box I noticed that the feeling of the metal is unlike any yoyo I’ve felt before. If I can compare it to anything I would compare it to the feeling of a chalk board. When you scratch the yoyo, it easily leaves a scratch mark from your nails and gives you goosebumps, just as a chalk board does, this affects the type of grinds you do with your fingernail such as talon, thumb, and horizontal finger grinds, it might not affect the play as much, but it does feel rather scratchy and odd.
In terms of play, this yoyo is AMAZING at speed. the heavy weight distribution from the weight rings gives it amazing stability while going fast, in other words it does not tilt, which also makes it amazing for horizontal. The only problem I have with this yoyo is how snaggy it is. Whether it’s the response or design, the yoyo can snag easily in techy combos and slacky binds. This is probably because speedy players do the very powerful binds where you throw the yoyo up or to the side.
Overall, I highly recommend this yoyo to any speedy player that has $240 in his pocket and is willing to spend it.

The main topic discussed today was around style of Yoyo play. Is LorenYo Cubing a speedy player or a techy player or something completely different?
In the video he displayed yoyos from YoyoFreaks, the prototype of the YoyoFreaks #Pound and the #Hashtag, TOPYO Quantum and the YOYOFFICER Rave. All these yoyos are bi-metal. The Yoyos were provided by Yoyobestbuy.
