OneDrop started the Benchmark Series in 2013. The goal was to provide high-value Side Effect yo-yos that was their take on the standard shapes/ideas for that year. Three different shapes were released that all shared the same width, diameter and weight.
2014 is coming to a close and the new Benchmarks Series is here!
The basic idea is the same, but OneDrop pushed the envelope even further in a few ways:
- This year there will be four shapes all sharing the same width, diameter and weight: W, H, O ,V.
- They all feature a variation of the “Drop Step” weight distribution seen on the Cascade and Summit.
- The width is 1mm bigger.
- The diameter is 1mm smaller.
- The shipping weight is 1 gram lighter.
- They all come with a new Side Effect: Flat Caps, which weigh in at 3.3 grams.
