Appearance: This yoyo has a narrow profile a lot like the Duncan Proyo loopers which I have always thought make great loopers, however the convex caps on the sides give it a subtle round look. On it’s side it looks like a mini sports arena with the floating dome on top hehe. You can take these caps off with suction cups to put in whatever type design you want in it.
Overall though, it’s a very streamlined, and simple design which I find pleasing to the eye.
Play/ Feel: I like how this yoyo feels in the hand. I don’t like the molded lines that the yoyo has on the wings but it is of no consequence during play. This yoyo has very precise gap adjustment. I usually play with the tightest setting for my loops and get excellent response. The Gap can be adjusted fairly wide, enough to have decent spin time for a looper and even throw a trapeze if you want to. What I like about its gap adjustment is how precise and controlled it is. No matter where you set it, it stays there until you decide to adjust it again.
The Star Burst response had me a bit concerned because in the past I’ve seen these stars eat string, however with the Unleashed, there are no worries about this thanks to its raised starburst design. Just your normal wear. I’m currently using Black Cotton looping string with it as I like how it contrasts with the white polycarbonate. But they do recommend you to use 50/50 Poly/Cotton string for it.
The overall looping capacity for the Unleashed is excellent. I find it blows the Speed Beetle out of the Water. I like the Speed Beetle but find it too vibey, whereas the Unleashed has more stability and smoothness, which makes it a great choice for two handed play. It’s fast and just glides through the air effortlessly!
The returns with the Unleashed though, come back a bit hard. They gave it the right name alright… it feels like your unleashing a lot of throw power every time! It’s narrow form really packs a punch coming back. But I can fore go this just because it really holds its position during loop play and makes you look pretty awesome.
Conclusion: There are so many loopers out there with bearings and fixed axles and wood axles etc… that it all kind of comes down to how you like the feel of it. From my experience, I consider the Unleashed to be an excellent choice if you love looping. It doesn’t chew your string, it’s quiet, it’s fast, it has excellent response with precise gap adjustment and looks cool. It’s a real winner!
