CLYW and The Maple Syrup feel

(Erik Kerber ) #1

So theres always a back and forth argument going on about which company is better and blah blah blah. Now I’m not saying CLYW is better in anyway I just wanted to put my experience out there. When I pick up a YYF shutter and I throw it I go wow this is a great yoyo I could use this in a competition I can do all my best tricks on it this is a great yoyo.

When I pick up my Chief I go wow this yoyo’s great I can do all the tricks I want with it I could compete with it its amazing but there’s also an extra felling of happiness when I pick it up. I don’t know what it is but I think it because CLYW uses Maple syrup in the production of there yoyo’s not just any maple syrup but Canadian maple syrup.

Now I’m not saying CLYW throws are better a YYF throw is as good as a CLYW throw in every way (minus the death grip bearing seats they can be kinda annoying) but play on the string is just as good. I love my yoyo factory throws a lot but theres just something about picking up a CLYW yoyo that makes me feel extra happy.

What are you guy’s thoughts?


not sure if srs


I agree, the buttery smooth maple syrup is what makes the yoyos buttery smooth as well. They do a great job!


Well; come to think of it; a few of my CLYW yoyos feel fat and slippery when I throw them: Cliff, Arctic Express, BVM2,.

So Chris much Soak some of them in ‘Canadian Bacon’.

Not sure if I am srs though.

How dare you say that CLYW yoyos are better than Yoyofactory yoyos!


agreed! made in china > made in usa all day!


because 28 stories


Haha epic sarcasm warning.

I used to think it was called 28 stories because there were 28 stories that some ancient Chieften once told at a Powwow. Like, “the 28 stories of Chief ___” lol…

Then I saw the blood and the sky and the clouds. Yup


After letting my girlfriend’s 8 year old play with mine all weekend it definitely has a sticky, maple syrup texture to it…


Are you saying that Yoyofactory is made in china and CLYW is made in the usa?

He says clearly That CLYW is not better in any way…

CLYW and YYF are just as good as eachother as far as tricks and stuff go CLYW just feels extra special to me


And I 100% agree with you I love all of mine for different reasons even my Glacier express! :slight_smile:

Yea I love my Chief and marmont 2 for different reasons aswell I also really like my yyf primo and cypher


I seriously believe a factor here is how much the person spends on said yoyo. If the shutter were $160 I’d bet more people would say it’s just as special as a chief. I think it’s more of a placebo affect but that’s just an opinion.

That does make sense actually I don’t think thats the whole reason but I do see what you mean
