Meet the Parlay. Designed over a decade, executed in a day.You might recognize some strategically placed elements from some legendary One Drop yoyos from the past (and maybe the present, for that matter) in its design. That’s probably not a mistake. The Parlay features the now signature One Drop response bump, though the area around the bump is sunken into the yoyo, effectively creating the Response Moat. This gives you the classic high wall feeling that will whip your *** into shape, but also gives you increased spin time by reducing string friction. Some players may balk at the weight of the Parlay, shipping at less than 62g with Flat Caps. Don’t go by the numbers though, man, go by the feeling. Despite its light weight, it spins for centuries, and is deceptively stable. It even has quite a bit of heft, thanks to the masterful touch of the most talented machinist in the industry.
The oversized Kraken has a unique weight distribution which gives it a surprisingly nimble and maneuverable feel on the string. It plays as fast as you can push it without that heavy ‘rock on a string’ feel that some larger yo-yos are known for. The curvy H-shape profile and large diameter give it a really powerful spin and a comfortable feel in the hand that make the Kraken feel right at home from the first throw.
