This video was a livestream of LorenzYo Cubing of lorenzyocubing.com from Scottsdale AZ. In the video he interacted with viewers answering questions and taking requests for Yoyo Tricks and Mini Yoyo tutorials.
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.

This video is a live stream video of LorenzYo Cubing talking about various topics related to Yoyos and Yoyo Tricks. In this episode, he talked about BAC 2017, The Hype Crew, YoyoBestBuy and MagicYoyo reposting his review on their official Facebook Page.
LorenzYo Cubing also was requested to perform various tricks including Horizontals and speed combos. He exhibited the Harrison Hurricane and the final triangle trick he learned for Evan Nagao at the BAC 2017.
LorenzYo Cubing was asked about various yoyos, including YoyoRecreation POM and Gargantua. He ended up showing the Gargantua and taking it through a few tricks. There was a lot of talk about YOYOFFICER and how LorenzYo Cubing recommends the Yacare as a budget priced yoyo performing way above it’s price.
The 20th Bay Area Classic happened Saturday, June 3, 2017 and was such an awesome event. Although I did not compete, I supported the competition by having LorenzYoCubing.com as a Silver Sponsor! On top of that we officially live streamed the whole event from start to finish!
This event have historically produced many champions and yoyo experts serves as an inspiration to me and to many generations of yoyoers like me. In fact, the very first exposure I experienced to the Yoyo world as it exist today was BAC 2015, where I met Brandon Vu, Gentry Stien and JD Steele. I was awe struck not knowing that such an event and community exist.
Like me, many young people have been influenced by this event. It is amazing to think that for 20 years, the BAC have captured the attention and imagination of generations of Yoyoers and is going strong to this day.
As I have mentioned in the previous posts, lorenzyocubing.com is a silver sponsor of the event. In addition to that, our production crew, aka my family, went to the event and did a multi-camera live stream using the latest tech, SlingStudio. The whole event was live streamed on my YouTube Channel.
Playing with this yoyo is very satisfying. It plays according to your style whether is is speed, tech, and generally hits your tricks very well. The only tricks that I have trouble with are horizontal tricks. Since the yoyo is zero wall and very v-shaped, it tends to wonder away from the horizontal axis.
Grinds are very good on this yoyo. The only thing that I would want to be different is the lazer engravings in the face of the yoyo. They make it sort of difficult to do horizontal finger spins because it gives your finger nail a scratchy feeling. If the lazer engravings weren’t there, finger spins would be a whole lot better.
Overall, I highly recommend this to be a fun yoyo in anyone’s collection.
When I first pulled the yoyo out of the box, the plastic is not like any other plastic yoyo that I’ve owned before. I felt like a piece of furniture. The yoyo also had a string on it ready to cut to my own height, that’s a plus!!! When I first threw the yoyo, it had a tiny bit of vibration and wasn’t that good for finger grinds because of the bulgy shape, similar to the YoyoFactory Replay Pro and The YoyoFactory Aviator 1 and 2. Although, it can do finger spins pretty well because of the gift concave space on the face of the yoyo.
I was a little disappointed with the limited ability to grind, but the playability totally made up for that!!! The yoyo hit my tricks pretty well and overall it is a fun yoyo and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try something new.
It is spring time in Brentwood and with the amount of rain we have had this winter, everything is blooming. Which then trigger allergies for some who suffer from such including yours truly and HanzYoyo. So what better way to alleviate ourselves of the symptoms than by taking Claritin, using Visine eyedrops and throwing yoyos around 🙂
In this video you will find me doing tricks together with my new friend HanzYoyo who is also a YouTuber. I met Hanz at Cal State Yoyo Championships last April at Jack London Square in Oakland, CA. After the event, we stayed in touch and found out that we lived within 20 minutes of each other. So one day I called him up and invited him over to do this video collaboration.
In the video, HanzYoyo used the TopYo Quantum which you have seen me review before.
This episode of Throw Score Yoyo Reviews is on the YOYOFFICER YACARE.
After playing with the YOYOFFICER Yacare for a week, it has quickly become one of my favorite throws. This yoyo is designed to be speedy and flawless at finger spins. It is super smooth with a glossy finish that almost feels like it is bead blasted. The throw is light and the shape is angular which makes it great for speed and horizontal tricks as well.
Best of all is the value you get from this yoyo. The price is about $40 but the yoyo quality and playability is well above its price range.
If your play style is speedy and you do a lot of horizontal tricks, including finger spins, you will be happy with this awesome throw from YOYOFFICER.
“100 Yoyos, 10 Color Ways, 1 Time Run,” that is what sums up YoyoFreaks Hashtag. This is something you can get at yoyobestbuy.
With the plethora of yoyo companies and yoyo models out there, YoyoFreaks is doing something different, quality versus quantity. There are only 100 yoyos made of this series. So when they are gone, they are gone.
This yoyo is a miniature sized bi-metal yoyo that is amazing at fingerspins. The yoyo is bead blasted to a really smooth texture. In fact the yoyo feels dead smooth. The yoyo is light but heavy for a mini yoyo. All Grinds on this yoyo are amazing!!!
YoyoFreaks Hashtag feels really good while at play. It is excellent at speedy and techy type tricks. Despite it’s size, the yoyo can play well according to any style of play you do, although horizontal is a little difficult because of it’s size. Overall, I highly recommend this yoyo and in my opinion, it is the best miniature sized yoyo out there right now. Get one before it’s gone!!!
Here now is the Throw Score of Yoyo Freaks Hashtag:
Okay guys we are going through this cycle again because I have received six new yoyos from yoyobesbuy and I’m ready to start unboxing and reviewing these!!! In this unboxing I unboxed the new MagicYoyo Carpfin.
When I first took the yoyo out of the package I immediately noticed that there was some weight to the yoyo. I also noticed that the face of the yoyo looked just like the face of the YoyoFactory Shutter. When I first threw the yoyo, it was dead smooth. While playing with the yoyo, it is more on the heavier side. Even though I can keep a constant pace while doing tricks, it doesn’t carry out speed combos that well, because of the weight. I think that this yoyo was designed to do techy tricks at a constant pace, sort of similar to the styles of Yuuki Spencer and Zach Gormley.

Grinds on this yoyo are fine. The only grinds that I had trouble with were inner cup grinds for example talon and thumb grinds. The reason I had trouble with those was because the inner cup was glossy as opposed to the rest of the yoyo which is bead blasted. Since it is glossy, if you grab the inner cup with your skin, the yoyo will whirl around. I recommend that if you are going to to inner cup grinds then use mostly your fingernails so that the metal won’t snag on your fingers. horizontal finger grinds are okay because you already mostly use your fingernail when you do a finger spin.
The MagicYoyo Carpfin is a good yoyo for a player that does techy style tricks at a normal pace. Grinds are okay as long as you use mostly fingernail while doing inner cup grinds. Overall, I highly recommend this yoyo.
Finally I got my hands on yet another CLYW yoyo masterpiece, the CLYW Manatee. JD Steele at YoyoBestBuy let me borrow the Manatee to try it out and to give it a Throw Score review. My original intent was to return it after the review but I decided to keep it after throwing it around for about a week.
The Manatee is very smooth right out of the box. It leans on the heavier side at 67 grams. It is a metal yoyo with a bead blasted finish. The color way is super cool. I was able to get the teal and red blend but when it spins, the yoyo actually looks like gun metal gray.
I have scored the yoyo in the video below and have laid out the total scores at the bottom of this web page. I added a new category that scores the yoyo’s stability while at play. I simply put a range between Floaty and Stable. The higher the number the more stable and the lower the number the more floaty the yoyo feels.
The CLYW Manatee is easily a “goto” yoyo. I highly recommend it to any serious yoyo player. It is a must have.
Check out the Throw Score video of the CLYW Manatee and let me know what you think.
