Duncan really stepped up there game in my opinion. After playing with yoyos like the Duncan Imperial, Butterfly, or Metal drifter, I would’ve never expected them to make a yoyo this good.
Right out of the box the yoyo was dead smooth and could play any style that I want it to play whether it be speed, tech, horizontal, you name it. The bi-metal rings also made it very balanced and stable so that when playing horizontal or any other type of play it will resist tilt. This is an excellent yoyo and it has become one of my personal favorites.
If you have $120 dollars lying around then I would highly recommend this yoyo.
Big thanks to my Kuya Brian from Duncan for sending me this, you’re the best.
This unboxing was a really fun video to make. Since you asked many times in my YouTube live streams, Throw Talk Thursday, I brought RAN DOM back. Yes he is in this video so be prepared for the unexpected 🙂
The CLYW Borealis is a great throw. It is dead smooth, light yet stable during yoyo play. It is of great quality as we have come to expect from CLYW.
As for the style of play, this yoyo can do both techy style and speed. If you are a Yoyoer who dabbles in both like Zack Gormley, Kerian Cooper, Harrison Lee and Angelo Aquirre, you are going to like this yoyo.
You have seen these videos before, yoyo tricks being performed in the dark with the string and yoyo giving off a nice luminous glow. These are pretty cool to look at and gives a “wow” effect to those who are watching.
So how is it done? The answer to that question points to UV light or Black light. These cool lights come in various forms such as LED light strips, black light bulbs and even light bars. Some of which are pictured below.
But what I have opted for is an LED Flood light from Amazon.
I went with this set up after thinking through what I am going to use it for, which is to make the glowing effects for some of my yoyo trick and cubing videos. I wanted to have control over where I point the light, so it needs to be a small package that I can mask and flag. Also I wanted to have it powerful enough (20W) and budget friendly at the same time. This light from Amazon is about $34. If that is too much, there is also a 10W version that is under $20.
In addition to yoyo tricks I brought out some of my cubes to see how they looked under the black light and I was not disappointed. The two cubes I brought out are the Moyu Weilong v2 and the Gans 356 Air.
In my unboxing of the Thesis Synthesis, you can see my first impressions of this yoyo. It is of good quality and design. It is in that video that you will see the yoyo in regular play. Check it out in the link above.
The Vapormotion was designed by C3YoyoDesign. You can see the roots of C3 specially with the finger spin cup.
But this collaboration will not be complete without MagicYoyo manufacturing. They are the ones that made the yoyo based on C3’s design.
The result of this collaboration is the Vapormotion. Which to me comes as a very pleasant surprise. See historically MagicYoyo has been producing budget yoyos which are of good quality. But this throw is a different level. It is of excellent quality and design. The collaboration between the two companies worked.
In terms of playability, the yoyo is very capable all around. Although at first glance the combination of plastic with metal rims plus the V like shape suggest that this yoyo was made for speed. It is actually a well rounded yoyo. You can do speed and tech with the Vapormation.

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.

Out of the box, the CLYW Puffin is a definite “Wow.” It is a beautiful. CLWY designed and crafted the Puffin yoyo well. It feels dead smooth and plays very well.
The playability of the CLYW Puffin if spans the horizon of play styles and yoyo tricks. It is capable of anything I threw at it. Although I would way given the design and response, this yoyo leans towards techy play.
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.
