When I first opened this yoyo I thought it was a bi-metal but it turns out the shiny rings is just apart of the design of the yoyo. The whole yoyo is made out of 6061 aluminum. So in the video when I said “it has a lack of rim weight which is suprising” it’s actually not that surprising to me anymore because it’s not a bi-metal.
The diameter is very large while the width is very narrow. This is a feature that I dislike about some yoyos. However even though its has this feature, it is one of the best that I’ve played with with this feature under the YOYOFFICER Yacare. It would’ve been better if the shape of the yoyo was wider and more rounded.
As I said before, the yoyo lacked a bit of rim weight. The weight felt more towards the middle of the yoyo which was a bit odd. This would have been better if the yoyo’s weight was more toward the rims and a bit lighter.

This video was a livestream of LorenzYo Cubing of lorenzyocubing.com from. Brentwood CA. In the video he interacted with viewers answering questions and taking requests for Yoyo Tricks and Mini Yoyo tutorials.
In this episode LoreznYo Cubing played with a few yoyos from TopYo, including the TopYo Turbine. He also announced some Yoyo news. First of he is doing a few give aways to help in his quest to have 5K subcribers by the end of the year. LorenzYo Cubing showcased the initial set of prizes he will be giving away.
As I have tested it, the yoyo is a very stable techy yoyo. It lands very solid on the string which makes it good for tech but not quite for speed. The yoyo is bead blasted to a really smooth texture. All Grinds on this yoyo are amazing except for finger spin.
I highly recommend this yoyo for the techy player looking for a good quality metal yoyo at an affordable price point.
When I first threw this yoyo, I noticed that the finish of the yoyo is a little strange. It doesn’t feel mat or glossy. Even though its metal, the feel reminds me of the feel of the MagicYoyo Skyva, CLYW Big Dipper, and the YOYOFFICER X-Point. While in play, the yoyo tends to hit my hand a lot because of the flat bearing and organic shape, and since it has that type of finish, it will try to keep rolling on my skin. The yoyo also tends to be uncontrollable at times because of the flat bearing. the bearing makes the yoyo tilt and respond because the string leans in to the response pads.
I recommend that when you get this yoyo, you change the flat bearing to avoid the yoyo tilting. I also recommend that you change the string that comes with it because it was very light and made it difficult to do whip tricks.
Overall, I recommend this yoyo as a starter 1a yoyo similar to the YoyoFactory DV888 yoyo.
In terms of playability this yoyo plays almost identical to the C3YoyoDesign Gamma Crash. It plays fast, it is very light, and it is good for horizontal play. The only difference between the two yoyos was the grinds.
The only score that was different than the Gamma Crash was the finger spin. pom The thumb grinds however is actually the same as the Gamma Crash. If that standard was in the Gamma Crash’s throw score, it wouldn’t have gotten a five so really the only difference is the finger spin. In the face of the yoyo there is a metal cylinder that sticks out from the center that makes your finger move around it rapidly which makes the finger spin very difficult.
Other than that this yoyo is awesome for speed and horizontal play.

The $90 POM Draupnir is basically the plastic version of the $200 Bi-metal draupnir. I personally like this yoyo better than the regular Draupnir because one, it’s cheaper, and two it is lighter (for speed) and smoother (for grinds) because of the delrim plastic.
As many of you might know, the C3YoyoDesign Gamma Crash is known as the “plastic Draupnir” but now since there is an ACTUAL plastic draupnir, how do they compare? These two throws are actually insanely similar. The only difference about these yoyos are the plastic and metal centers in the face of the yoyo, and the prices. Gamma Crash is $65 and the POM Draupnir is $90. The playabilities of these yoyos are almost identical as well. Both are very fast, light, good for horizontal, good for grinds, and they are both delrim plastic!!! If you want to know more about how I feel about this yoyo, just watch my unboxing and review of the Gamma Crash. I have the exact same feelings about both of these yoyos. That being said I really love this yoyo.
So if you want a draupnir but you don’t have the money but you want something equally as good or maybe even better, I highly recommend the YoyoRecreation POM Draupnir.
So the YoyoRecreation Sigtyr is supposedly known as the techy version of the speedy yoyo the YoyoRecreation Draupnir . This yoyo lives up to that title perfectly. “So what exactly are the differences between the Draupnir and the Sigtyr?” you guys may ask.
The rims on the Sigtyr are a lot more thicker and heavier than the ones on the Draupnir. So the yoyo while in play is a lot more stable and has more spin time to carry out difficult and techy tricks. The response is also a lot less snaggy on the Sigtyr than the Draupnir. It is still very strong, but only strong enough to carry out technical or slacky binds, ones that are usually carried out during technical play opposed to speedy players doing very fast binds that require an even stronger response. The finish on this yoyo is also a lot less chalky than the Draupnir so that doing grinds that require your nails will feel smooth.
I highly recommend this yoyo to techy players only. Playing fast on this yoyo isn’t a very good choice. It is just to heavy with no float to go fast. Something I noticed about playing fast with this yoyo is that it takes a lot more exaggerated movement to go fast because it is just too heavy. It is also a little difficult to change directions quickly. While I was doing horizontal play, the yoyo would keep the momentum in one direction that made it very difficult to change it.
If you are a techy player with $200, get the Sigtyr. But if you are a speed player with $200, get the Draupnir.
