After playing with the MagicYoyo Carpfin I found out some of it’s strengths and weaknesses. Lets start off with strengths. The MagicYoyo Carpfin is a very stable yoyo that will power through your techy tricks. It is very good at horizontal play, finger spins, and finger grinds. Now lets get into some of it’s weaknesses. The yoyo can be a little too heavy sometimes so doing speed is not too excellent here. Also, since the face of the yoyo is very glossy, it can be difficult to do talon grinds and thumb grinds.
Overall, if you are a mainstream techy player, then this yoyo is for you. This is a fun yoyo and definitely a must in everyone’s collection.
Okay guys we are going through this cycle again because I have received six new yoyos from yoyobesbuy and I’m ready to start unboxing and reviewing these!!! In this unboxing I unboxed the new MagicYoyo Carpfin.
When I first took the yoyo out of the package I immediately noticed that there was some weight to the yoyo. I also noticed that the face of the yoyo looked just like the face of the YoyoFactory Shutter. When I first threw the yoyo, it was dead smooth. While playing with the yoyo, it is more on the heavier side. Even though I can keep a constant pace while doing tricks, it doesn’t carry out speed combos that well, because of the weight. I think that this yoyo was designed to do techy tricks at a constant pace, sort of similar to the styles of Yuuki Spencer and Zach Gormley.

Grinds on this yoyo are fine. The only grinds that I had trouble with were inner cup grinds for example talon and thumb grinds. The reason I had trouble with those was because the inner cup was glossy as opposed to the rest of the yoyo which is bead blasted. Since it is glossy, if you grab the inner cup with your skin, the yoyo will whirl around. I recommend that if you are going to to inner cup grinds then use mostly your fingernails so that the metal won’t snag on your fingers. horizontal finger grinds are okay because you already mostly use your fingernail when you do a finger spin.
The MagicYoyo Carpfin is a good yoyo for a player that does techy style tricks at a normal pace. Grinds are okay as long as you use mostly fingernail while doing inner cup grinds. Overall, I highly recommend this yoyo.
