Yoyo Unboxing – C3YoyoDesign Bastet

In this unboxing I unboxed the C3YoyoDesign Bastet.

When I first threw the yoyo, it was very smooth, but while testing the smoothness of the yoyo which involves placing your finger against it, I noticed that the yoyo was very glossy. So when I tried grinding, the yoyo kept rolling off my arm. So the only way I could grind without the yoyo rolling off was if I tilted my hand down a lot.

In terms of playability, the yoyo feels very powerful when you throw it down, so when you throw it you’ll feel a very heavy thud. It feels very bouncy when you land it on the string. It’s right in the middle of floaty and stable so it’s sort of an all around type of yoyo. Although since it’s so narrow, it’s very difficult to catch the yoyo sometimes while playing horizontal.

According to YoyoStoreRewind, the Yoyo “has the great balance of the Radius, but the smoothness of the Capless that gives it really sweet rejection tricks. That smoothness also lends itself to intense long combos.”  It definitely has a unique feel to it.

This Yoyo would be a great buy if you are looking to try something new and unique.

 

 

Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep#14 – TopYo Colossusiii

In this episode of Throw Score I reviewed the TopYo Colossusiii.

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.

In this episode of Throw Score I reviewed the TopYo Impulse.

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#11 – MagicYoyo Metal Skyva

In this episode of Throw Score, I reviewed the MagicYoyo Metal Skyva.

After playing with this yoyo I am amazed at how good this yoyo plays and am surprised that this is actually a MagicYoyo. The Plastic Skyva was okay but the metal version gave it abilities that the original didn’t, specifically finger grinds. This yoyo only had a few but very little flaws that kept it from being a 5/5 throw.

First off, while playing horizontally I noticed that it was a bit difficult to catch the yoyo on the string if I was for example doing a horizontal Eli hop. It was just a tad narrow and would’ve been better if it was a tad wider than it is. The second problem was the inner cup grinds, but I’m not talking about finger spins because those are perfect. I’m talking about talon and thumb grinds. The only ledge you really have to do those types of grinds is the section of the face where it starts leading in to the finger spin dimple. It is very rounded and far from the outer section in the diameter of the yoyo. This would’ve been better it the place where it starts leading into the dimple was closer to the outer section of the face and a bit flatter.

Other than that, the playability of this yoyo is fantastic. I highly recommend this yoyo to anyone who loved the original skyva.

When I first took this yoyo out of the box I noticed that the feeling of the metal is unlike any yoyo I’ve felt before. If I can compare it to anything I would compare it to the feeling of a chalk board. When you scratch the yoyo, it easily leaves a scratch mark from your nails and gives you goosebumps, just as a chalk board does, this affects the type of grinds you do with your fingernail such as talon, thumb, and horizontal finger grinds, it might not affect the play as much, but it does feel rather scratchy and odd.

In terms of play, this yoyo is AMAZING at speed. the heavy weight distribution from the weight rings gives it amazing stability while going fast, in other words it does not tilt, which also makes it amazing for horizontal. The only problem I have with this yoyo is how snaggy it is. Whether it’s the response or design, the yoyo can snag easily in techy combos and slacky binds. This is probably because speedy players do the very powerful binds where you throw the yoyo up or to the side.

Overall, I highly recommend this yoyo to any speedy player that has $240 in his pocket and is willing to spend it.

Throw Score Yoyo Review Ep#10 – MagicYoyo Carpfin

In this episode of Throw Score, I reviewed the MagicYoyo Carpfin

More from MagicYoyo at amazon.com

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.

 

Yoyo Unboxing – YoyoRecreation POM Gargantua

We’ve finally reached the end of this unboxing series and this video I unboxed the YoyoRecreation POM Gargantua.

When I first threw this yoyo, I noticed that it had a little vibe and that it burned to grind. While in play though, it handled my tricks and combos very well. since it was light for it size and oversized, it was really good for speed combos. It pretty much was just like the YoyoRecreation POM Diffusion. Horizontal finger grinds on this yoyo were very good because the face was very wide and con-caved towards the center. Also, I noticed that since the size was so big, it was very easy to hit whip tricks because the yoyo can catch the string very easily.

Overall, the YoyoRecreation POM Gargantua is a yoyo that is great at speed and catching the yoyo in whip tricks because of its size. This is definitely a yoyo you should have in your collection and I highly recommend it.

The main topic discussed today was around style of Yoyo play. Is LorenYo Cubing a speedy player or a techy player or something completely different?

In the video he displayed yoyos from YoyoFreaks, the prototype of the YoyoFreaks #Pound and the #Hashtag, TOPYO Quantum and the YOYOFFICER Rave. All these yoyos are bi-metal. The Yoyos were provided by Yoyobestbuy.
