Throw Score Ep#9 – YOYOFFICER Yacare

This episode of Throw Score Yoyo Reviews is on the YOYOFFICER YACARE.

After playing with the YOYOFFICER Yacare for a week, it has quickly become one of my favorite throws.  This yoyo is designed to be speedy and flawless at finger spins.  It is super smooth with a glossy finish that almost feels like it is bead blasted.  The throw is light and the shape is angular which makes it great for speed and horizontal tricks as well.

Best of all is the value you get from this yoyo.  The price is about $40 but the yoyo quality and playability is well above its price range.

If your play style is speedy and you do a lot of horizontal tricks, including finger spins, you will be happy with this awesome throw from YOYOFFICER.

The Luftverk MagicYoyo Skyva is a plastic yoyo.  The qualtiy of the plastic and the feel of it is of good quality.  The yoyo plays very well and is so fun to finger spin.

JD Steele at YoyoBestBuy let me borrow the Skyva to try it out.  I liked it so much I decided to keep it.  Priced at about $20 it is a good buy specially if you geek out on fingerspins.

The Skyva is very smooth right out of the box.  It leans on the heavy side at 66.5 grams.  Since it is plastic, the yoyo does not score well on Finger Grinds and Talon Grinds.  But this yoyo was not designed for those trick elements in particular.  The Luftverk MagicYoyo Skyva is all about Finger Spin.  And the design of the throw is spot on for that trick element.  Horizontal play is excellent using the Skyva.  In the video I executed the Harrison Hurricane and the yoyo felt awesome.

This is Throw is a must have in any Yoyoers collection.  At $20 it is an excellent buy that will give you so much joy as you finger spin and spin and spin and spin…

Check out the Throw Score video of the Luftverk MagicYoyo Skyva and let me know what you think.
