Hello folks! And fellow YO Freaks! I broke down and got another YO this weekend, but ONLY because the price was right. I could not help myself this time hehe. I am a sucker for BLACK Yoyos.
I am pleased to make commentary on the Recreational Revolution Sharp Yoyo. And This one is Black of course!
First it is a Full Size Throw:
Diameter: 56mm or 2 ¼ inches
Width: 42mm or 1 5/8 th inches
Gap: 5 mm
Weight 69 grams
Response: hat pads
(Short Review in Blue followed by the long version)
Awesome throw! Great balance and solid feel throughout, does not tilt, wide gap, no drag resistance noticeable, and is pleasantly a quiet player.
Very Floaty, smoooth smooth player with hardly any vibe at all. It offers super long sleepers (longest sleepers of all my throws out of the box). This throw also plays equally as well as the spyy pro, supra, ST quark, singularity, yyf 888, yyf chaotic, and yyf protostar.
t has an Awesome bead blast surface providing Super Super finger, arm and palm grinds, but NO IRG grinds though. It just flies right off your thumb.
Tight binds, easy catches, fast or slow on the string and cool looks.
This is a very affordable all aluminum throw. I’d put it up against any full size throw out there. You can’t go wrong with the Rec Rev Sharp if you decide to get it.
I LOVE the look and feel of this throw, yes sir feelin the LOVE. It’s solid and heavy.
There is a white version but this one was my choice. It was like the lady of the lake, I just kept staring at it and it said, “Coooome to the dark side” hehe
The finish is a matte bead blast. It has a superb feel to it. Super super smooth. It rivals the yoyo factory blast on my chaotic as an example.
The design is really simple and basic, plain even, but I have always loved the minimalist approach to design anyway. The outer halves of the yoyo look as they have been perfectly sliced. It’s so so smooth everywhere you handle it. And when you throw it, you can’t tell it’s even spinning. It just looks like a black hole floating about in space. So so cool. People say, dude, is that spinning?
The performance is really something to appreciate. This is my heaviest yoyo so far. And when you throw it, you feel it too. Tension all the way through. If anyone here likes to fish, you know how it feels when u cast the line into the air and into the water??? That’s what this feels like and when it lands it’s like a soft solid plunge.
You wanna talk momentum?? This has it, like a freight train, Out of the box it is has super long sleeps. It blows away everything in my collection in this regard. Some people may play it and say, its too heavy. But the thing here is, you don’t have to throw as much and, AND when you are learning a new trick especially more complex ones like master level, you won’t need to worry about spin time or having the thing tip over. And it Floats, believe it or not, very floaty. Hardly ANY VIBE at all even on a hard throw! And this thing moves air too. You’re playing and when it passes you, you can feel a breeze and even air drag. Hehe
Another tid bit, having this yoyo to practice with is great because when you get a trick down with it and then go play something lighter your play is gonna be even faster and your gonna fly through it.
Binds are real tight too with a soft landing on the return which is very nice.
Balance, this thing has great balance even with the stock flat bearing that I always gripe about, but that is because of it’s weight momentum.
The gap wall is low, maybe only 1/8th of an inch of wall starting right after the hat pads end. For a traditional butterfly shape, this one has plenty of gap and super easy catches and thanks to the low wall, there is no string friction.
Grinding is very very good, but it only does finger, palm and arm grinds, NO thumb grinds. What’s interesting here is that you don’t really feel the spin on the grind like other throws, just feel the weight. I can feel all my throws spin on the grind, naturally, but this one just kind of sits there and is hard to feel the spin. Really impressive!
If you like heavier metal throws, and for the price, look at Rec Rev, they are simply awesome. It just goes to show how much mark up there is behind many brands. You could get two RecRevs for one expensive brand and have awesome, awesome play.
I also threw their white delrin paper mache. It too is a great throw, solid white minimalist look. And the grinds of that delrin are smokin! (Rivals the metals that is for sure.) Better than the Duncan Freebird in my opinion.
Well that wraps up this commentary, if you decide to get the Sharp, I am sure you will love it. If I missed anything, just ask.
Thanks or stopping by.
