This video is a live stream video of LorenzYo Cubing talking about various topics related to Yoyos and Yoyo Tricks. In this episode, he talked about BAC 2017, The Hype Crew, YoyoBestBuy and MagicYoyo reposting his review on their official Facebook Page.
LorenzYo Cubing also was requested to perform various tricks including Horizontals and speed combos. He exhibited the Harrison Hurricane and the final triangle trick he learned for Evan Nagao at the BAC 2017.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
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…

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.

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.
