In this episode of Throw Score I reviewed the YoyoRecreation Draupnir.
After playing with this yoyo I’ve noticed that this yoyo is awesome at speed and horizontal. No wonder why when people mention speed they always mention the YoyoRecreation Draupnir. There were only a few specific things about this yoyo that kept it from being a 5/5 throw.
The main thing that I had a problem with was the finish on the yoyo. It felt too much like a chalk board, to the extent that if I did any grinds that involved my finger nails such as finger spins and talon grinds, it would leave either dust marks, or particles of my finger nail. It felt a little too much like a piece of furniture.
The second thing about this yoyo that kept it from being a 5/5 yoyo is that it tends to snag a lot more than usual compared to other throws that I’ve played with. So sometimes when I’m doing a very techy combo, sometimes it will unexpectedly bind or snag in the middle of a trick.
I would say that if you are a hard chore speed player such as Iori Yamaki or Yuki Nishisako, then I would recommend this yoyo.

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.
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.

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.
