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.

Yoyo Unboxing – MagicYoyo Katana

This video is the Yoyo unboxing of the MagicYoyo Katana by LorenzYo Cubing.


The MagicYoyo Katana is a bi-metal H shaped yoyo that is a lot of fun.  it comes with a golden bearing that looks and feel legit when at play.

My first impressions right out of the box is the yoyo is dead smooth.  The bearing sounds pretty cool, spins really fast and is of great quality.

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.  Because of the shape, horizontal tricks are awesome with this throw.

More information about the Katana from MagicYoyo

MagicYoyo has definitely stepped up their game.  The quality of the yoyos they produce today is much improved compared to earlier models.  On the MagicYoyo Katana, the response is good.  It does not snag, nor respond late.  It feel just right.

Executing tricks and hitting binds on this yoyo is really cool.  I highly recommend the MagicYoyo Katana.  It is a fun bi-metal yoyo of great quality.

Yoyo Unboxing – Recess Komodo

In this video I unboxed the Recess Komodo.

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.

here is the unboxing of the Recess Komodo –

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.

Yoyo Tricks Video – Spring Throwing featuring HanzYoyo

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.

On my part, I used the CLYW Orca which is one of my favorite throws.
