Before I tell you my thoughts on this yoyo let me explain the intro. The intro to this video is something new I’m trying and always wanted to do on my channel which is a skit video.

The story includes how I received the package, how I invited RAN DOM aka Daniel and how he got to my house (in this video played by Geoffrey Quilates because Daniel was in Nevada at the time), and what happened during the filming of the TopYo Selene video that YOU DIDN’T SEE.

Anyways, please leave a comment on what you thought about this skit type video and if you would like to see more.

OKAY now into the review.

First off a little background. The name of this yoyo, “Aurora”, is based on the Aurora Borealis Northern Lights in Earth’s high-latitude regions around the arctic or Antarctica.

The yoyo was given this name because if the bright LED lights that activate on the side of the yoyo while it is spinning. There are two versions of this yoyo that one can purchase. One can either purchase an Aurora that displays only ONE COLOR light for $25.99, or an Aurora that has COLOR CHANGING lights for $28.99.

The yoyo itself is a V-shape with round rims. It’s width is closer to the narrow side but not too narrow so it is comfortable to hold in your hand. The catch zone/main shape area is a hollow shell made out of aluminum. I say hollow because on both sides of the yoyo, there are flat caps which cover the light display system. Each side of the yoyo has two lights which are powered by two small circular batteries (I apologize I forgot the name of these types of batteries). You can take off the caps to change the batteries with a small thin tool that comes with the yoyo that you stick inside the hole of the axel which then pops off the caps. The yoyo also comes with four extra batteries which you can switch out once the batteries that it came with run out of power.

Due to the technology on both sides of the yoyo, it does have a bit of vibe, but not too much that it becomes a problem while in play. Also although this yoyo is light, the batteries and lights give the yoyo some center weight so it’s a bit difficult to swing the yoyo around quickly, such as horizontal, speed, and hop tricks.

The lights themselves are very beautiful and high quality, I definitely recommend the color changing lights version so you can appreciate all the different moods the lights produce.

I HIGHLY recommend using glow in the dark string or a black light while using this yoyo so that your string matches the brightness of the lights. Without a bright string it is more difficult to see the string since your attention is focused on the lights.

Overall this yoyo is a very fun MagicYoyo to play with and I highly recommend you add it to your collection.

Yoyo Review – TopYo Selene

 

In this video I reviewed the TopYo Selene (2018) yoyo.

TopYo Selene on YoyoExpert

TopYo yoyos at YoyoBestbuy

I originally was going to make an unboxing video on this yoyo with first impressions, however that footage was lost so I decided to just make a review video about it.

There are currently two versions of this yoyo, the 2018 version and the 2019 version with some improvements. This video is only on the 2018 version.

Let’s start off with a little background. The original idea on the TopYo Selene yoyo was to combine the designs of the TopYo Top yoyo and the TopYo Pluto yoyo. Another goal for this yoyo was to design it very western style. This was done by giving the option to buy either a solid matte anodized version or a solid glossy/raw like anodized version since most western yoyos are either one or the other. (For reference, a lot of Chinese yoyo companies design and anodize their yoyos to have a matte finish in the catch zone/overall shape with a glossy face/finger spin area.) TopYo also designed the specs of the yoyo to be similar to a yoyo most western players would use, a long width and gap width with a smaller diameter.

The yoyo out of the box is very smooth, however I would say that the matte version is a tad smoother than the glossy version (over time the glossy version got a bit of vibe). As mentioned, the yoyo has a wide catch zone so it is easy to catch on the string and has a nice comfortable shape for finger grinds. The face of the yoyo has a concave with a flat surface in the center which is excellent for horizontal finger spins, and a nice ledge towards the outside which is good for talon and thumb grinds.

While in play, the yoyo is a tiny bit closer to the lighter side but only a tad bit. It is still mostly in the middle, not too heavy and not too light. The playability is just like the weight, in the middle. The yoyo is definitely not floaty but also definitely not too solid/stable like. It has just the right amount of weight to handle most styles whether it be speed, tech, meta, you name it. It isn’t exactly 100% in all those styles but it still gets the job done.

In my opinion, I think that the yoyo could be improved if the rims were a bit thicker and extended farther into the catch zone for more rim weight and stability.

Overall the TopYo Selene is a great all around throw, definitely one of my favorite TopYo yoyos and I would highly recommend it for your collection. Definitely worth the $35.

Unboxing – HouLight UV LED Black Flood Light V2

This video is an unboxing video of the new and improved HouLight High Power 20W Ultra Violet UV LED Flood Light.

You may recall that I have unboxed the original version of this HouLight UV light before.  You can find that unboxing video by clicking here.

In the original video one of my criticisms about this light is there is no on and off switch.  Essentially to turn it on and off you literally need to plug it in the outlet or unplug it.  That effort becomes a bit inconvenient specially if you are using often.

This version 2 however is the new and improved version.  HouLight took notice of complaint and improved the product by adding an on and off switch on the light.  They reached out to me via messenger and asked if I can review the new and improved version and I agreed.  If you are in the market for a black light, look no further than the HouLight High Power 20W Ultra Violet UV LED Flood Light.  For yoyoing, it will make your strings look super cool and visible.

Yoyo Unboxing – Offset Outlier

In this video I unboxed Brandon Vu’s signature yoyo the Offset Outlier

Offset Outlier at OffsetYoyos

This yoyo has a generally large diameter and is not too wide and not too narrow. It has some nice stainless steal rims that have the Outlier later engraving and later I noticed that it had my Youtube initials on it “LYC”. I believe that Brandon puts the initials of the player that ordered it next to the Outlier engraving.

This yoyo is dead smooth on the first throw. In terms of playability this yoyo is actually phenomenal in all the styles I threw at it. It is light but the rims make it stable enough so that it can play all styles. The lightness and stability of the rims makes it excellent at speed and since it is wide it is very good for tech as well. The open catch zone makes whip and laceration tricks very easy and it also is awesome at horizontal tricks. All grinds are very good on this yoyo however the rough laser engravings in the faces makes it feel weird while doing finger spins but isn’t that much of a problem.

Overall this is an awesome throw and I highly recommend this yoyo to anyone that has $110 bucks in their pocket. Huge thanks to Brandon for sending me this throw and I hope you enjoy the one I sent you as well haha.

Yoyo Tricks – TopYo Meta

In this video I show cased some of my yoyo tricks with my signature yoyo the TopYo Meta!!!

///TopYo//Meta\\LYC\\\ at YoyoBestBuy

///TopYo//Meta\\LYC\\\ at Ozhiriz.com

Having a signature yoyo is something that I’ve dreamed of having ever since I started yo-yoing. After getting sponsored by TopYo, which is also something I’ve always wanted, I thought to myself “What if did a collaboration design to make a yoyo that’s just right for me?” and sure enough, the owner was very open to the idea!!! I took some of my favorite yoyos and processed what I liked about each of them so that I can have one yoyo with all their traits. And then after three prototypes, my signature was born!!!

///TopYo//Meta\\LYC\\\ at Yoyo Store Rewind

After I had the prototypes in my hand, I had to come up with a name for this yoyo. While watching a Scales Collective podcast, I kept hearing them say the word “meta” over and over again. So I texted Keiran Cooper and asked him what the word meta means. He told me that it’s a term most gamers use which is ” a strategy that the majority uses to win” and I thought to myself “that’s what I want my yoyo to be, a yoyo that people use to win” hence, outcome the TopYo Meta.

///TopYo//Meta\\LYC\\\ at YJYOYO

Thank you so much TopYo for making this yoyo possible and I am so proud to say that I am apart of the team!!!

Yoyo Unboxing – TopYo Raiser

In this video I unboxed the TopYo Raiser along with a sponsorship package!!!

First off, congrats to Eugene Joh for getting sponsored by TopYo!!! Welcome to the family brudda and I’m super happy for you, and for me too cause I’m not the only one in the U.S. anymore haha.

The yoyos I got in the package were new color ways of the rimmed silenus, impulse, and photon, along with the new TopYo Raiser.

The TopYo Raiser bi-metal is a very smooth yoyo. I noticed that it plays very fast and very light. The inner rims give it good rim weight so that the yoyo isn’t too floaty. the open shape allows the yoyo to handle techy tricks very well, it also allows it to play horizontal pretty nice as well.

Overall this is an all around bi-metal throw and I highly recommend it!!!

Enjoy the video!!!
