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.

Enjoy the review.

 

Throw Score Ep#15 – TopYo Empty

In this episode of Throw Score I reviewed the new Bi-Metal from TopYo, the Empty.

This yoyo has quickly become one of my favorite throws. It has just the right amount of floatiness and stableness to be and all around performance yoyo. Speedy play is awesome, techy style is not a problem, and it plays horizontal excellently.

The only design flaw I found in this yoyo was the inner cup. Since it was really flat, the yoyo swayed around in circles a lot while doing finger spins. If the inner cup was a little deeper with a slight concave, then finger spins on this yoyo would’ve been easier to do.

Overall, this yoyo is a high quality performance yoyo that carries out all styles beautifully. I highly recommend this yoyo.

After playing with this yoyo, I have come to the conclusion that it is the most floaty yoyo that I have ever played with. It’s a tad undersized and on top of that it is very light. There were a few specific things about this yoyo that kept it from being a five.

First off, the design of the yoyo is undersized. Usually I don’t mind undersized yoyos, but the width has to be wider so that you can grind easier and it also has to be heavy so that the yoyo doesn’t play as small as it actually is. So the diameter would be smaller but the width and weight would be generally the same. However on this yoyo, everything got smaller. The diameter, the width, and the weight. That made the yoyo a little to light and floaty. It would’ve been better if the yoyo was wider and heavier.

Another problem I had with this yoyo were grinds. Since the whole yoyo got smaller, the width was very narrow which made it a little difficult to do finger grinds. Also, since the face of the yoyo is glossy, the yoyo kept gripping my skin when I tried to do talon grinds. It would have been better if the whole yoyo had a mat finish instead of the main gap having a mat finish while the face of the yoyo was glossy.

So overall, I highly recommend this yoyo to any player who’s style is very floaty, players with small hands, and anyone who is willing to try something new.

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.

Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep#12 – YoyoRecreation Draupnir

In this episode of Throw Score I reviewed the YoyoRecreation Draupnir.

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.

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.
