LorenzYo Cubing was asked about various yoyos, including YoyoRecreation POM and Gargantua.  He ended up showing the Gargantua and taking it through a few tricks.  There was a lot of talk about YOYOFFICER and how LorenzYo Cubing recommends the Yacare as a budget priced yoyo performing way above it’s price.

Yoyo Tricks Video – Spring Throwing featuring HanzYoyo

It is spring time in Brentwood and with the amount of rain we have had this winter, everything is blooming.  Which then trigger allergies for some who suffer from such including yours truly and HanzYoyo.  So what better way to alleviate ourselves of the symptoms than by taking Claritin, using Visine eyedrops and throwing yoyos around 🙂

In this video you will find me doing tricks together with my new friend HanzYoyo who is also a YouTuber.  I met Hanz at Cal State Yoyo Championships last April at Jack London Square in Oakland, CA.  After the event, we stayed in touch and found out that we lived within 20 minutes of each other.  So one day I called him up and invited him over to do this video collaboration.

In the video, HanzYoyo used the TopYo Quantum which you have seen me review before.

On my part, I used the CLYW Orca which is one of my favorite throws.

We hope you enjoy this fun video as much as we had fun making it.  Please support Hanzyoyo and subscribe to his YouTube Channel.

Yoyo Unboxing – CLYW Kayak

In this video, I unboxed Yuuki Spencer’s new signature yoyo the CLYW Kayak

CLYW Kayak at yoyobestbuy.com

Yoyos at Amazon.com

So right out of the box this yoyo is dead smooth. on a scale of 1-10 of smoothness, it is a 20!!! Finger Grinds, not a problem. Talon Grinds, easy. Thumb Grinds, gimme a break. The only finger grind that is a little difficult is the horizontal finger grind. Even though there is a dimple in the center of the face, that whole section is elevated upward, when you do a finger spin, your finger will land on the side of the ledge. So finger spins on this yoyo are doable, but they’re not great.

This yoyo leans more to the stable and heavy side as opposed to floaty and light yoyos. Due to the yoyo’s zero wall, it really difficult to do speed combos and horizontal combos with. Techy style on the other hand is not a problem. If you watch Yuuki Spencer’s tricks and combos, he doesn’t do too much speed or horizontal, however he does do a lot of techy tricks that are at a normal speed. So you play like that, then this yoyo is right for you!!! Some other players that play tech at a normal speed – Zach Gormley, Harrizon Lee

Now here is the unboxing of the Caribou Lodge Kayak –

Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep#7 – CLYW Manatee

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.

CLYW Manatee at YoyoBestBuy

 

Yoyos At Amazon

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.

Yoyo Tricks – The Freshman

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.

Yoyo Tricks Video – Fall Throwing

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.

BAC Yoyo Competition 2016

This is when I went to the Bay Area Classic Yoyo Competition 2016. Although I didn’t compete, I had a fun time meeting new people, yoyoing, and watching all the competitor’s performances.

I got to meet up with friends whom I have met in past events.  Seeing them again and witnessing how they have grown in yoyo tricks and skills is really an awesome experience.  We spend the day not only watching the awesome display on stage, but also sharing and showing what we know and have practiceds since last we hung out.

In the video you will see lots of yoyos and combo tricks thrown by various players.  In parts where I am doing tricks, you will see me use the OneDrop Gauntlet.

The atmosphere at this event is really cool and chill.  It is easy to walk up to kids my age and even older kids and strike a conversation, throw a few spins and hang out.

I also had the chance to see the professionals displaying their art in executing yoyo performances.
