In this episode of throw score yoyo review, I reviewed the TopYo Innovator. This version of the Innovator is the latest color way of this yoyo. First impression out of the box, this is a beautifully crafted throw.
In my unboxing of the 4th sponsorship package from TOPYO, the innovator was included. At first I was not sure what it was, until I saw what was in the box. I was surely excited because I have never had the chance to play with this yoyo before when it was originally released a few seasons ago. But I am surely glad I am able to now, and for many of you, I think you will be too.
One thing to note about Innovator, it is a very capable techy yoyo. Although you can use it for speed combos, it is not as nimble. As far as weight feel goes, it has just the right amount of weight that gives it stability and floatiness you want in a techy throw.

If you watched my Instagram livestream of me unboxing my new sponsorship package from TOP-YO, you would have seen that the new collaboration bi-metal yoyo from TOP-YO and UNPRLD the elimination was by far my favorite TOP-YO throw that I’ve ever gotten.
The TOP-YO UNPRLD Elimination yoyo is a premium bi-metal yoyo designed for speedy play, and when I say speedy, I mean hard core SPEEDY. Other yoyos that have the same style of this type of play would be the UNPRLD Flash and the YoyoRecreation Draupnir and Sigtr. If any of those throws are your favorite already, I guarantee you would love this one. I loved it so much, I decided to make a promo video on it.
After playing with the TopYo Impulse this throw has become one of my absolute favorites. I have yet to find any flaws in this yoyo. There are no parts of the design that interferes with grinds. The rim weight is evenly distributed and the yoyo has an even balance of a floaty to stable ratio, so it can handle speedy and techy tricks easily without a problem. This is definitely one of my favorite throws and I highly recommend it to everyone and all styles.
After playing with this yoyo I’ve noticed that this yoyo is awesome at speed and horizontal. No wonder why when people mention speed they always mention the YoyoRecreation Draupnir. There were only a few specific things about this yoyo that kept it from being a 5/5 throw.
The main thing that I had a problem with was the finish on the yoyo. It felt too much like a chalk board, to the extent that if I did any grinds that involved my finger nails such as finger spins and talon grinds, it would leave either dust marks, or particles of my finger nail. It felt a little too much like a piece of furniture.
The second thing about this yoyo that kept it from being a 5/5 yoyo is that it tends to snag a lot more than usual compared to other throws that I’ve played with. So sometimes when I’m doing a very techy combo, sometimes it will unexpectedly bind or snag in the middle of a trick.
I would say that if you are a hard chore speed player such as Iori Yamaki or Yuki Nishisako, then I would recommend this yoyo.
When I first pulled the yoyo out of the box, the plastic is not like any other plastic yoyo that I’ve owned before. I felt like a piece of furniture. The yoyo also had a string on it ready to cut to my own height, that’s a plus!!! When I first threw the yoyo, it had a tiny bit of vibration and wasn’t that good for finger grinds because of the bulgy shape, similar to the YoyoFactory Replay Pro and The YoyoFactory Aviator 1 and 2. Although, it can do finger spins pretty well because of the gift concave space on the face of the yoyo.
I was a little disappointed with the limited ability to grind, but the playability totally made up for that!!! The yoyo hit my tricks pretty well and overall it is a fun yoyo and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try something new.
