I bought this yoyo approximately 5 minutes after I saw it, I had to have it. For 12 dollars (Price went back up to 13 dollars because of glitch) it looked amazing.
Is it worth the money? How is it compared to other yoyos in the price range? Find out by reading this review.

First Impressions and Appearance:
It comes with a normal C3 box. I opened the box. The yoyo was stuck onto a card type thing that made it so the yoyo doesn’t rattle in the box. In a little plastic sleeve is a Yellow Kitty String. The first thing I noticed was the color, it is crystal clear plastic. It is shiny and glossy. It looks great. It has 2 stickers on each side. One on the rim and one on the hub, covering the axle / nut. It looks great, for sure.
It has a wide, rounded shape. It feels good in the hand. It is also significantly wider than most of my collection. In the inner rim, there is a groove which I assumed was for thumb grinds.
The big question, is it a good performer? How does it play? How does it play compared to other yoyos in the price range? To all these questions, I can honestly say it is a great performer and is without a doubt, it is one of the best in the price range.
On the string, it feels lightweight. If I didn’t know better, I would have assumed that it weighed 64-65 grams. It feels “Floaty”, but it carries momentum well, it can keep a good pace. It feels light, but the extra weight it has gives it some extra momentum, making it one of the best plastic yoyos for flow tricks. It can definitely accelerate to high speeds. There is no real emphasis on rim weight, but stays balanced.
Compared To Other Yoyos In The Price Range:
It dominates them all (Excluding the Yoyojam Surge). It is smooth and plays great. Something I am really happy about is the weight. On most yoyos under 15 dollars, the yoyo is 64 grams or less, making the yoyo light and unstable, meanwhile this yoyo has a solid weight and keeps a good balance on the string.
There isn’t much left to be said in the end, but overall, this is probably my favorite yoyo for 13 dollars so far. There aren’t many better options out there besides the Yoyojam Surge.
