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 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.

LorenzYoCubing.com Silver Sponsor of Bay Area Classic 2017 (BAC 2017)

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!!!

CAL State Yoyo Competition 2017 1A Prelims – 28th Lorenzo Penacerrada

You guys have been asking for it, so here it is, my Cal State Yoyo Competition 2017 1A Prelims performance.

Enjoy…Rant video coming soon!

Going on stage for the first time pushed my nerves to the limit.  But when I watched the video of my performance, it felt a lot worse that it looked.  I did not quite make the finals, but getting the experience is inspiring me to do it again.  (Competition Results click here).

This is definitely an event that I will continue to attend year after year.  Thank you all for hanging out and being cool.

Check out the  video and let me know what you think.

 

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.

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.

Why I Don’t Compete in Yoyo Competitions

Many of you in the comments keep asking questions like, Why don’t you compete? or Why are you not competing? and You Should Compete.

Lorenzo if you competed earlier you would have been sponsored already. That is not really true. Renzo how come we do not see you on stage during competitions. Well, let me tell you why. Actually you know what let me show you why?

Check out the Video and let me know your thoughts.
