[Yo-Yo] TopYo – Silenus Review by TokYo-Yo

Silenus is the full metal version of the wide-bodied H-profile of the Mojo.

Top Yo’s flagship plastic model, the Mojo, get a full metal treatment with the Silenus. Its greatest characteristic would be the wide H-profile that is preserved from the Mojo, making Silenus a great throw for risky acrobatic tricks, where you may need a little extra help hitting that string.

The switch in materials amounts to a power-up, making much longer combos possible. Whether you’re practicing tricks or making up new ones, or performing for a crowd, Silenus is here to see you through it. And at this price, it even makes for a great upgrade for players looking to step up from plastic to full metal.

*The Silenus is NOT made for fingerspin tricks, and does not have the concave spot that is on the Mojo.

[Yo-Yo] YoYoFactory – Spinstar Review by TokYo-Yo


Brought to you by one of the world’s leading competition yo-yo maker, Spinstar is the ultimate yo-yo, for beginners!

Quite possibly the easiest yo-yo to pick up and start playing for the first time, Spinstar is designed for the beginner in all of us; you don’t have to try to yo-yo, you just do. Even if you never picked one up before, you can discover the joy of yo-yoing immediately. And it’s made by guys who know yo-yo, they’ve been behind a whole mess of champions.

The size balance is perfect for adults and children.
This yo-yo is well suited for players regardless of how tall they are or how hard they can throw, Spinstar has been designed so the only setup and maintenance needed is replacing the string and adjusting string length. Adults and children can play side by side with the same yo-yo.

Long sleepers are even longer, thanks to the low edge and V-shape body.
From the side, the body is shaped like the letter “V” with something known as a “low edge,” which means the shape keeps the string away from the response pads. That way, your yo-yo stays spinning as long as you can bust out tricks, until you’re read for it to come back. The “V” also makes it easier to catch the yo-yo on the string, so old school tricks like Walk the Dog and Elevator are easy to pull off.

No special maintenance required, just refresh the string!
In the old days, yo-yos needed to be oiled to perform well. With the Spinstar, you don’t have the hurdle of “maintenance” to get the most out of your yo-yo. Just when the string gets old and dirty, just switch it out for a new one!

Tangled? No problem! Spinstar is easy to open up
To open up your yo-yo, just grip both sides of the yo-yo, then spin them apart like opening a soda bottle. The sides will easily come apart, and you can fish the string out easily.

*when reassembling, first make sure the plastic axle is tightly screwed into one side of the yo-yo, then tighten the other side.

“Even better than before,” is the ongoing mission of YoYoFactory, and they’ve created the perfect yo-yo for beginners to start from zero. Pick up this yo-yo, and pick up yo-yoing!

[Yo-Yo] C3yoyodesign – Speedaholic Review by TokYo-Yo


High performance is within reach! Speedaholic is an affordable plastic yo-yo that can handle the latest tricks that seem to defy the laws of physics!

A perfect step-up model from beginning to intermediate tricks, Speedaholic is C3’s flagship plastic yo-yo. The new version is a design overhaul that has boosted all the specs. The Speedaholic was designed especially for the “string trick” playstyle, with a pronounced “wing shape” to help guide the yo-yo to land on the string every time. That means not only improved performance, but that difficult tricks are made that much easier.

Out of the box, Speedaholic is set to “bind response,” which requires a special technique to get the yo-yo to return. This means the yo-yo will not return until you tell it to, letting players conjure up much more complex string tricks than with “tug response” yo-yos. As a result, the Speedaholic will spin for MUCH longer than an average beginner yo-yo, but it requires the player to have a little practice to master first. That’s why we call the Speedaholic a “graduation model,” from beginner to intermediate play.

The biggest change in the Speedaholic’s design is the carving of the hub areas, allowing players to spin their yo-yo sideways on top of their finger. While fingerspin (also called “top-on”) tricks used to be impossible for all but the best players, C3 has created a beginner step-up model capable of incredible top-on techniques! The design even re-centers the yo-yo, giving you a lot of support as you create the next killer horizontal move!
