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.

The 20th Bay Area Classic is happening this Saturday, June 3, 2017 and we are excited to announce that LorenzYoCubing.com is a Silver Sponsor!

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.

For those of you in the Bay Area, come on by and join us! The admission to the contest is free, however if you want to access the museum, there is an entrace fee.

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.

Throw Score Ep#9 – YOYOFFICER Yacare

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.

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!!!

You guys have been asking for it, so here it is, my Cal State Yoyo Competition 2017 1A Prelims performance.

Check out the Video and let me know your thoughts.
