Yoyo Review – TopYo X UNPRLD Antidote

Here are my thoughts on the latest collaboration yoyo between TopYo and UNPRLD, the Antidote.

Purchase the TopYo X UNPRLD Antidote HERE!

Specifications:

Diameter: 56.40 mm / 2.22 inches
Width: 45.60 mm / 1.79 inches
Gap Width: 4.75 mm / 0.18 inches
Weight: 65 grams
Bearing Size: Size C (.250 x .500 x .187)
Response: 19mm Slim Pad Size

The Antidote has a very nice v-shape with slanted and thick rims which is very good for rim weight. The body has a very smooth plastic material which according to UNPRLD is made with injection molding. It is dead smooth out of the box and very good for normal finger grinds as well as flawless finger spins due to the concave metal finger spin dimple. The yoyo is neither too wide nor too narrow, but is just (baby bear) right.

While in play, the yoyo is very light, nimble, and fast. The thick rims keep the yoyo from tilting which makes it great for speed, hop, and horizontal tricks. For such a light yoyo it actually has a very good spin time and can very well hold it’s own for a wide variety of tricks and combos. For some players however, it might take some time to get used to controlling the yoyo if they’re used to the feel of mid-heavy weight throws.

Overall, this yoyo is an exceptionally good speedy-pocket throw and would highly recommend it to players who love to do fast and extreme hop combos. This throw is definitely one that everyone should have in their collection!

Yoyo Tricks Tutorial – Kimchi Kombo

The Kimchi Kombo is a fun Yoyo Trick I came up with a long time ago. The truth is it did not even have a name until today. Since I just had Korean BBQ this week and Kimchi is a staple in the meal, I thought why not use it to name the yoyo trick. Just like the eating experience of Korean Barbecue with Kimchi of course, the yoyo trick is brief, spicy yet satisfying.

In this video, I used the yoyo from UNPRLD and TOPYO collaboration, the ELIMINATION.  For the string I used the newly released Buddha XL from YoyoBestBuy.

In this yoyo trick tutorial video, I perform the complete combo at a slower pace.  This is to show the details of the various elements of the trick.  The viewpoint starts of from the audience point of view.

I then switch to the yoyoers point of view.  This is the meat of the tutorial.  The pace of the trick is much slower and I have broken out the elements in steps.  From this viewpoint, you can see the intricacies of the trick.  You will see where to land the yoyo, what string and even what finger position to use to throughout the combo.

After the step by step yoyoers view point, I switch back to the audience view and execute the yoyo trick combo at its intended speed

The yoyo trick seems complex, but with this video, you should be able to follow the steps.  With practice, you will be able to add it to your combos.

Throw Score Yoyo Review EP#27 – UNPRLD ABDUCTION

In this episode of throw score yoyo review, I reviewed the UNPRLD ABDUCTION.  This version of the Abduction is the glossy colorway in red.  First impression out of the box, this is a beautifully crafted Yoyo.

In my unboxing of the UNPRLD ABDUCTION, you can see the yoyo in close up detail.  First I was not sure how it would perform because although it is a really beautifully crafted yoyo, the glossy finish of the version I reviewed was going to be a challenge.  I did more research and found that it does come in a matted color way.

Diameter 58 mm
Weight 67.5 g
Yoyo Material 7075 Aluminum
Bearing Size C Size
Response 19 mm CBC Sized Pads
Skill Level Intermediate, Pro

I was surely excited though because UPRLD yoyos I have reviewed have been consistently good.   One thing to note about Abduction, it is a very capable techy yoyo.  Due to the added rim weight in the inner part of the rim, it feels pretty good landing techy tricks.  Although you can use it for speed combos, it is not nimble.

Yoyo Unboxing – UNPRLD Abduction

The video is a yoyo unboxing video of the UNPRLD Abduction.  The yoyo was provided by YoyoBestBuy.

First impression the UNPRLD Abduction will is a sheer wow.  It is a beautifully crafted throw.   You can tell that UNPRLD put a lot thought in the design of the yoyo.  According to the product page from YoyoBestbuy, the “Abduction was Elliot Ogawa’s idea. He wanted a yoyo that had less of a rock feeling that the ignition had. He also thought that the yoyo should be affordable, and durable.”

The difference between the Ignition and the Abduction shows in the Abduction’s bigger diameter and mono-metal composition.  It feels solid and is quite a buy starting at $45.

The UNPRLD Abduction has great looking cuts.  It feels solid yet comfortable to hold.  The finish of the yoyo I used was polished, which makes it a little more difficult to do finger grinds.  However, it does come in matte colors which is what I prefer.

The UNPRLD Abduction is a great addition to anyone’s collection of excellent yoyos from UPRLD.  It is temperate for speed and chill for tech play.  It will give you hours fun play.

Yoyo Tricks – TOP-YO UNPRLD Elimination

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.

TOP-YO + UNPRLD ELimination at YoyoNation

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.

Enjoy!!!
