Mr. J Review: CLYW Puffin

Published by:

I’m back with a long overdue review. It’s been a long time since I have reviewed a yoyo, modded or other wise. So it feels good to get back into the swing of things. Today I’m reviewing the new CLYW Puffin. There has been a lot of buzz surrounding this yoyo but no real review. Well, today I give you a real review of the Puffin.

New CLYW Plastic – The Yeti

Published by:

More info once it’s available.

Doc’s Note: WOWZA there must be some plastic fever running around or something. I can’t wait!

Yuuki Spencer had something to say about the Yeti

“Best plastic I have ever played with hands down!”
- Yuuki Spencer

The Yeti will be at BAC to try out. Seek out a CLYW player to try it.

WALTER – It is coming + Promo Video

Published by:


This is a yo-yo that I have been looking forward to for a long time. Peep this sweet promo video!

Doc’s Edit:
This has been in the works for a while and it has me excited also.

From Spencer Berry:

All numbered Walters are matte black. Due to the nature of the process, some also have a bit of a splash/spray in shades of black. The hardcoat marks very easily and can be colored on with colored pencil (erases), crayon (doesn’t come off easily), or chalk (barely). The hardcoat means it can take a lot more abuse – but it can be scuffed a lot easier.

Walter will come in a custom made wood box.

They will each be sanded (to prevent the rough texture of the blasting from breaking string), oiled (10-ball shieldless bearings with 3in1), and assembled.

They come with either flowable silicone or CLYW snow tires (the turquoise ones, aka “all season”) for response. This will need to be replaced eventually if you are a ripper. Be a ripper!

Walter will ship with Kitty String FAT, most likely in Gold.

CLYW came on to help put the finishing touches on the CAD work and helped finance it, OneDrop did the machine work, and Anti-Yo assisted with the blast finish

The Walter is a unique, slim line yo-yo that is particular to the type of tricks Spencer Berry likes. It is not for everyone, but no doubt that everyone will want one. Limited to 100 pieces.
You can pre-order the Walter soon from Spencer Berry on his website

Robinson’s Review: CLYW Arctic Circle

Published by:

 

Doc’s Note: Andrew Robinson is a modern day legend in yoyoing and I am very proud to have him on the journalism team.  I think we will be seeing a lot of action from Andrew as time rolls on.  Here is his first review

CLYW has always been known to produce the highest quality return tops that present a unique experience with each different model. The Arctic Circle is a compilation of previous CLYW return tops with Zach Gormley as the mastermind behind the design. Can this return top maintain its charm  and performance with the fusion of the most popular CLYW elements? This is where we find out.

Included with the return top is the classic 6 panel CLYW box. Each side is hand stamped in black ink with the sea, terrain, and sky of the arctic circle. Lift the tab and open the box and you’ll find the return top itself fitted with a polyester string, cradled in a paper hexagon nest with a CLYW sticker underneath.

Kingsborough ft. Elliot Jackson

Elliot Jackson sent me this video with the question “Thoughts?”

Well Elliot, I think it is pretty freaking amazing. All of it. The Yo-Yoing is superb, the filming and editing is low key and intimate, and even though I don’t like Kendama, you make it look good. I also think I really need to get one of those H5xChiefs

What about you dear readers? Thoughts?

CLYW Bear vs. Man Round 2

Published by:

This was on CLYW’s facebook.

CLYW released a picture of the updated Bear vs. Man. The profile of this one seems similar to that of the original BVM (maybe a bit wider?). The cup looks very different though. CLYW incorporates a small inner ring. With the success of this feature on their other return tops, I’m excited to see what this will do for Boyd’s throw.
