Yoyo Trick Tutorial – Boba Straw

Boba Straw is a fun Yoyo Trick I came up with a long time ago. The reason I called it Boba Straw is because there is a section of the trick in the beginning where the yoyo looks like a straw jabbing a boba cup. Also a lot of people I have on snap chat post videos of them jabbing their straws into their cups. So I thought it would be funny to name a trick after them.

In this video, I used the prototype of the collaboration yoyo I am doing with TOPYO.  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.

ThesisYoyo is a direct seller of the ThesisYoyo Synthesis.  You can contact them via their Facebook page and Instagram account.  They approached me via email to see if I wanted to review the Synthesis which I agreed to do.

I am glad we were able to reach an agreement and ThesisYoyo sent me a wonderful sample of their throw, the Synthesis.

When I received the box, it was very exciting.  But in the experience of opening  the box, you. can tell that ThesisYoyo put a lot of care in packaging the contents.  It is the only yoyo that I have seen packaged not one in a ribbon tied box, the yoyo was also inside a felt pouch.  It really peaked my curiosity and excitement.

When I finally pulled out the yoyo I was very pleased and wowed.  It is a good quality yoyo that pretty much handled all that I threw at it.

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.

Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep# 25 – Recess Joyride

In this episode of throw score yoyo review, I reviewed the Recess Joyride.  At first glance, this yoyo was impressively beautiful.  The yoyo reminds you of something out of a nice car, hence the name Joyride.

Recess Joyride at YoyoBestbuy.com

 

In my unboxing of the Recess Joyride, I read the description of the packaging and after playing with the Joyride, it certainly did not disappoint.  The writing on the box was accurate to the experience I had with this yoyo, it is quite fun to throw.

One thing to note about the Recess Joyride, I initially did not think it was going to finger spin.  Since at first impression the center “cup” or dimple was surrounded by what felt like an elevated mound.  But since playing, I found that finger spin on this yoyo is completely possible.  You just have to land it right in the center.  This was an added treat once I tried it.
