Throw Talk Thursday Ep#3 – Speedy or Techy

This video was a livestream of LorenzYo Cubing of lorenzyocubing.com from Scottsdale AZ.  In the video he interacted with viewers answering questions and taking requests for Yoyo Tricks and Mini Yoyo tutorials.

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.

Yoyo Unboxing – MagicYoyo Katana

This video is the Yoyo unboxing of the MagicYoyo Katana by LorenzYo Cubing.


The MagicYoyo Katana is a bi-metal H shaped yoyo that is a lot of fun.  it comes with a golden bearing that looks and feel legit when at play.

My first impressions right out of the box is the yoyo is dead smooth.  The bearing sounds pretty cool, spins really fast and is of great quality.

Playing with this yoyo is very satisfying. It plays according to your style whether is is speed, tech, and generally hits your tricks very well.  Because of the shape, horizontal tricks are awesome with this throw.

More information about the Katana from MagicYoyo

MagicYoyo has definitely stepped up their game.  The quality of the yoyos they produce today is much improved compared to earlier models.  On the MagicYoyo Katana, the response is good.  It does not snag, nor respond late.  It feel just right.

Executing tricks and hitting binds on this yoyo is really cool.  I highly recommend the MagicYoyo Katana.  It is a fun bi-metal yoyo of great quality.

Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep#5 – YOYOFFICER Rave

I have had the pleasure of playing with the Yoyofficer Rave extensively.  This yoyo has quickly become one of my favorites.  Yoyofficer did a good job with this Throw.

To review, the Yoyofficer Rave is a bi-metal yoyo which I purchased at YoyoBestBuy at around $99.97.  Out of the box, the yoyo felt really smooth while at play and it throws really well.

Yoyo Specifications

Bearing Size C Size
Width 44.35 mm
Gap Width 4.60 mm
Weight 64.8 grams
Diameter 55 mm
Response System 19 mm Slim

The yoyo finish is glossy.  It is very smooth and grinds well. The  weight feel of the yoyo is on the heavier side.  Which makes this yoyo lean towards techy play styles rather than speedy.  The shape as well not being a “v” shape suggests it is designed more for techy style play.  But even so, when I put it through speed combinations, this throw powered through them swiftly without missing a beat.

Overall, the Yoyofficer Rave is a very nice bi-metal yoyo that should put a smile on the face of the techy player in you.  This is an excellent bi-metal yoyo.

Yoyo Unboxing – Yoyofficer Rave

The next yoyo I am unboxing is the Yoyofficer Rave.  I tried this yoyo once before and I really liked it so I thought why not get one for myself.

I got the green with purple splash that matches my other Yoyofficer yoyo called the Vector.   The colorway is really nice.  Yoyofficer did a good job with this Throw.  

The Yoyofficer Rave is a bi-metal yoyo which I purchased at YoyoBestBuy at around $99.97.  Out of the box, the yoyo feels really smooth while at play but the response is not as strong.  However it still throws really well.

Something I noticed about Yoyofficer yoyos, the string that comes with it is really short.  So being a techy player, I like the strings a little longer so I just swap it out with Kitty Fat.

The yoyo finish is not bead blasted but rather it is on the glossy side.  However it is still very smooth and grinds well.  In term of weight feel, the yoyo seems to be on the heavier side.  Which makes this yoyo lean towards techy play styles rather than speedy.  The shape as well not being a “v” shape suggests it is designed more for techy style play.

My recommendation if you are considering buying this yoyo is to get additional response pads.  This should help in adjusting the responsiveness of the yoyoy to your liking.  Overall, the Yoyofficer Rave is very nice bi-metal yoyo that should put a smile on the face of the techy player in you.

Yoyo Unboxing – YoyoFreaks Your Mom 100 Series

“100 Yoyos, 10 Color Ways, 1 Time Run,” that is what sums up YoyoFreaks Your Mom.  This is directly from the site http://yoyofreaks.com/.

With the plethora of yoyo companies and yoyo models out there, YoyoFreaks is doing something different, quality versus quantity.  This is the brain child of JD Steele   who created YoyoFreaks originally as a site for yoyo videos.  Now it is a site of the 100 series and after they are gone, they are gone.

I managed to get my hands onto this limited edition yoyo.  My first impressions recorded for you in the video linked below.  Without spoiling too much about my first impressions, I would say this about the Your Mom, exciting.

Throw Score Yoyo Review – OneDrop Kuntosh 5000QV

Throw Score Yoyo Review – OneDrop Kuntosh 5000QV

The OneDrop Kuntosh 5000QV is a special edition yoyo building on the original Kuntosh designed by Sonny Patrick, according to the product description found in YoyoBestBuy. This special edition however, parallels the  inspiration that Lamborghini designers had when they made a special edition of the Lamborghini Countach they named the Countach 5000QV.

Lamborghini Countach 5000QV
The limited edition Lamborghini included subtle innovative design changes that improved performance of the car in comparisson to the original design.  In a similar approach, OneDrop made subtle changes to the design of the Kuntosh 5000QV, including a change in the aluminum allow to 7075 from the original 6061.  The changes are intended to refine and improve the yoyos performance from the original design.

I do not have a basis of comparisson with the original, since I have not been able to get my hands on one.  But having to have played with the Kuntosh 5000QV for a week now, I am very impressed.

First of the quality of the build is impressive.  It is of excellent quality.  The surface of the yoyo is smooth and feels solid to the touch.  I appreciate the variety of the color ways but prefer this beautiful racing red.


Yoyo Specifications

Bearing Size C Size (.250″ x .500″ x .187″) 10 Ball
Width 45.6 mm
Gap Width 4.32 mm
Weight 64.9 grams
Diameter 55.9 mm
Response System One Drop Flow Groove
YoYo Material 7075 Aluminum

As I put the yoyo through the rigors of yoyo tricks and combinations I found it to be a very competent design.  The yoyo carried out technical tricks very well.  For speed tricks it worked out well but the flatter angles of the side profile may slow it down at times.  The yoyo is really good for finger and talon grinds but finger spins  at times may be hampered by the side effects on the yoyo.

Overall the OneDrop Kuntosh 5000QV is a refined throw.  It is definitely a professional level yoyo.  The quality of the build, the yoyo design and feel exudes confidence in the player and helps land techincal tricks like a hot sports car taking corners.

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 🙂
