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 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#2 – C3YoyoDesign Gamma Crash

I have had the C3YoyoDesign Gamma Crash for few weeks now and I really am very impressed by this Yoyo.  Since the unboxing I given this Yoyo major play.  And I am still impressed by it since day one. It is a plastic yo-yo in the middle with stainless steel rims that you usually find on bi-metal yoyos. But if you did not know it is plastic, you would think it is metal because it plays and feels like a metal yoyo.

As I mentioned in the first Throw Score review, this review is completely different from what you are used to seeing. The approach is from a yoyoer’s point of view.  I came up with categories to rate a yoyo from what yoyo players are looking to get from a yoyo.  The categories are described below.  Each category has a score from 1 – 5. The higher the score the better except for Weight Feel, which the lower number represents a lighter feel and the higher number a heavier feel.  As an enhancement to the scoring, category 5, Style of play is now scored.  Details are below.

Here are the categories:

1. Smoothness – How smoothe the yoyo spins (Score 1-5).
2. Weight Feel – How heavy does the yoyo feel in your hand while at play (Score 1-5, light to heavy feel).
3. Grinding Ability – How well can the yoyo carries out yoyo grinding tricks. The score is composed of three subcategories, Finger Grinds, Talon Grinds and Finger spins. All of which have a score of 1-5 which are added for a combined score of 1-15.
4. Horrizontal Play – How well the yoyo carries out horrizontal tricks or combos (Score 1-5).
5. Style of Play – What kind of combos of tricks the yoyo is more likely suited.  The score is composed of two subcategories, Speed and Techy.  These two are now scored 1-5 which are added for a combined score of 1-10.

To summarize the scores, I took categories 1,3,4 and 5 and added the scores together and divided them by 5. This average number represents a score of the yoyo itself, which we will call the Throw Score.

Check out the yoyo review video and let me know what you think about the C3YoyoDesign Gamma Crash.

Yoyo Unboxing – C3YoyoDesign Gamma Crash

The next yoyo I am going to unbox is C3YoyoDesign Gamma Crash.

I got the black version and this one is actually going to be a given away soon to one of you as a thank you for watching my videos, visiting my site and following my posts. But first have to wait for this cube that I ordered that is also going to be part of the giveaway. So this yoyo is not for mine to keep but this is for you guys whoever wins the giveaway.

The C3YoyoDesign Gamma Crash is a plastic yo-yo in the middle with stainless steel rims that you usually find on bi-metal yoyos. C3YoyoDesign bought back some of the YoyoJam like stuff. YoyoJam does a lot of hybrids so I think this is going to feel like a YoyoJam yoyo.

Out of the box, this yoyo feels pretty cool. This actually feels a lot like a metal yoyo. I could probably use this for competition. This is the best plastic yoyo I have ever touched. You can actually grind on this plastic and it does not hurt. Usually plastic yoyos they do not really grind.

So right now this feels a lot like a metal yoyo. If I did not know this was a plastic yoyo you would think this is a high-end metal yoyo. You can finger spin with it even with the logo placement on the yoyo. Wow, who ever is going to win this from the giveaway is going to like it.

Yoyo players are going to like this. I admit I am really liking this yoyo. For horizontal to it is really smooth. Wow! I really do not know what to say except I am just loving it right now.

So that was the unboxing of the C3YoyoDesign Gamma Crash. Whoever wins the giveaway that I will be announcing soon this is going to be yours 🙂
