First impression of the box and packaging, thoughtful.  You can tell that Recess put a lot thought in putting together, not just the yoyo itself, but even how it shows up even before you open it.  The back of the box, had a pretty cool description of the yoyo and the intent for its design, “comfortable, smooth, and care-free play experience.”  It further says that it is “perfect for your first Metal YoYo.”  So did the Recess Joyride live up to the description?  I would say a definite “yes!”

The Recess Joyride has a nice organic shape.  Which lends itself to be a capable, easy to use design, for beginners.  The finish of the yoyo is dead smooth and is amazing at grinds.  It is quite an understatement to say that this is a perfect first metal yoyo, because by my estimates, this yoyo is good enough to use in competition.

The Recess Joyride is definitely a fun yoyo.  It is easy to use and should give you hours of care-free play.  I recommend this yoyo.

TOP-YO + UNPRLD ELimination at YoyoNation

The TopYo + UNPRLD Elimination is an excellent bi-metal, double ring Yoyo.  It is specially adept at speed but can pretty much handle every trick you throw at it.  It is a lot of fun and definitely can be used as a competition yoyo.

The 20th Bay Area Classic is happening this Saturday, June 3, 2017 and we are excited to announce that LorenzYoCubing.com is a Silver Sponsor!

This event have historically produced many champions and yoyo experts serves as an inspiration to me and to many generations of yoyoers like me.  In fact, the very first exposure I experienced to the Yoyo world as it exist today was BAC 2015, where I met Brandon Vu, Gentry Stien and JD Steele.  I was awe struck not knowing that such an event and community exist.

Like me, many young people have been influenced by this event.  It is amazing to think that for 20 years, the BAC have captured the attention and imagination of generations of Yoyoers and is going strong to this day.

For those of you in the Bay Area, come on by and join us! The admission to the contest is free, however if you want to access the museum, there is an entrace fee.

If you cannot make it to San Jose and would like to view the event, I will be live streaming throughout the day from my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/lorenzyocubing

For additional details about the event and to support all those who make this event possible visit the BayAreaClassic website.

See you there!!!

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 Episode 8 – YoyoFreaks Hashtag

“100 Yoyos, 10 Color Ways, 1 Time Run,” that is what sums up YoyoFreaks Hashtag.  This is something you can get at yoyobestbuy.

With the plethora of yoyo companies and yoyo models out there, YoyoFreaks is doing something different, quality versus quantity.  There are only 100 yoyos made of this series.  So when they are gone, they are gone.

This yoyo is a miniature sized bi-metal yoyo that is amazing at fingerspins.  The yoyo is bead blasted to a really smooth texture.  In fact the yoyo feels dead smooth. The yoyo is light but heavy for a mini yoyo. All Grinds on this yoyo are amazing!!!

YoyoFreaks Hashtag feels really good while at play.  It is excellent at speedy and techy type tricks. Despite it’s size, the yoyo can play well according to any style of play you do, although horizontal is a little difficult because of it’s size. Overall, I highly recommend this yoyo and in my opinion, it is the best miniature sized yoyo out there right now. Get one before it’s gone!!!
