Diameter: 55.08
Width: 47.10
Weight: 64.3
Material: 7003 Aluminum and Stainless Steel

Overview:
The Topyo Timejacker is the signature model of Su Jia Peng, who is an imposing 5a player. Though this yoyo is optimized for his playstyle, the timejacker also excels at 1a style and is used by Lin Junyi in the prelim round of the online world yoyo contest.

Design:
The timejacker is a simple, broad, v-shaped bimetal. The outer rims are covered in a stainless steel rim that adds significant weight to the edges. The time jacker has a slightly raised center to balance the weight. Topyo has released several color options, including blasted, polished, fades, and splashes. Topyo has also released other versions with varying engravings of the laser.

Performance:
The timejacker is built to compete. It has an immense amount of power with great catchability. The yoyo spins for a long time and is stable in play but is not very forgiving on the throw due to its wide shape. The response is pretty good, providing consistent binds and little snag, but due to the yoyo’s spin power, if you bind early in the yoyo’s spin, it will likely snag. The yoyo prefers to perform at a medium speed but can speed up and slow down. The shape, in particular, allows for great speed even during sloppy play. The yoyo plays fairly balanced, leaning on the heavy side. This yoyo excels at horizontal play and will allow for more consistent play throughout a challenging yoyo routine.

Soul:
The timejacker was made with competition in mind. For some people, the intense performance of the timejacker is fun due to the yo-yo’s capability. For others, this yoyo could feel like a soulless machine. I enjoy yoyos optimized for competition, and I have a lot of fun playing with this yoyo.

Final Thoughts:
At 69.99, you receive a yoyo with limitless possibilities. This yoyo will improve consistency in a routine and inspire more extensive and more complicated tricks. If you are looking for an inexpensive bimetal yoyo at the top echelon of performance, the time jacket is a great choice.

Cloud is machined plastic Delrin Yoyo from the TopYo brand. I am reviewing this yoyo because It’s one of the most fun throws I have ever had. The name of it says it all…THE CLOUD.

Specs:

  • the weight of a yoyo is 66,2g. The diameter is 56,00 mm. Width is 43,00 mm and gap width is 4,60 mm. Yoyo is using bearing size C from TopYo and 19mm pads.

Beadblast/Surface:

  • it’s machined Delrin, so it’s a silky, soft surface with a very creamy, buttery look. That’s the first reason why it is so much fun. It can be used for finger grinds and finger spins, but it’s much harder than on some aluminum throws.

Feel on the string:

  • I was impressed by spin time because yoyo is not that big and is made out of plastic
  • yoyo itself it’s very floaty, I really like Cloud
  • the quietest plastic throw ever, with a little bit of lube, I don’t even know it’s spinning
  • it’s not too wide, in my opinion, it have a little bit old school look and shape what I rike

Smoothness/Vibe:

  • it is possible to have some vibe because of the plastic. Mine was like 8/10, but with a little bit of tuning, it’s almost 10 out of 10.
  • there is nothing like a string vibe; it’s spinning smoothly on the string

Reasons to buy it:

  1. if you want something fun to throw
  2. if you are a beginner and want a first unresponsive plastic yoyo
  3. if you like plastic/Delrin yoyos
  4. if you are looking for something to carry with you in your pocket

It goes around 25-30$, and for that price, it’s a well-balanced yoyo with a fun aspect. It’s not a competition throw but worth trying. We are playing with the toy because It’s fun, and this toy is a lot of fun. Good yoyo!

This is the 2nd version of the highly popular mojo from Topyo, which its original form is made of Polycarbonate. Though they bear the same name, they look different in specific ways, and the pom version is an upgrade compared to the original version.

This new version of the Mojo sports a rounded H shape profile like the original with a much smoother pom body for better grinds and improved precision. One significant difference is the fingerspin hub design. Instead of the machined dimple that the original mojo has, which locks finger spins in very quickly no matter if you’re throwing horizontally or off-axis, the pom version has an aluminum hub with a dimple that replaces the original machined dimple for a smoother fingerspin experience. Still, it is harder to lock it in due to the comparatively smaller area for grinds.

It plays slightly heavier and more stable than the original because although the weight is unchanged but because of the somewhat more dense material compared to Polycarbonate, it has a more severe feel on hand and on the string. Speedy tricks can still be done with no issues due to their controllable and stable feeling, making you feel that you can go faster and longer with no problems. Another noticeable feature is that the pom version has slightly thinner rims than the original to prevent this yoyo from rim-weighting, sacrificing the fun feeling of pom yoyos.

Although it’s the same yoyo made of a different material, it brings a refreshing feeling. It has the same qualities as the original mojo you know and love!
