I think it'd be a great idea to have a Benchmark series WITHOUT side effects.

less center-weight, better for fingerspins, something a little different than previous years, and if for nothing else, knocks a few bucks off the price.

I have lego SEs (just a touch heavier than ultralights) in my 2016 H.  This round of Benchmarks are fantastic!

Have you ever thought of doing an offstring yo-yo, or at least an SE designed for finger spins?

One Drop hasn't really ever considered doing anything outside of 1a yoyos. I'm pretty sure they haven't even made a yoyo with 3a or 5a in mind yet.

As for SE for fingerspins, they'd be too heavy, a 66g yoyo could potentially be 80g I'm assuming.

What exactly makes a 5A yo-yo different from a 1A yo-yo?

I'm no expert in this area but I just meant some yoyos are just specifically designed for 3a or 5a as opposed to 1a. When I think of the best 1a yoyos I think extreme rim weight. I don't think rim weight is as important for 5a yoyos, average weight of 65-67g is more important than in 1a, maybe a rounded multi-step V-shape? I'm pretty sure there's more that goes into it but like I said I'm no expert.

I didn't really mean 5a yoyos are different than 1a yoyos, I just think designs can be made to be more 5a-oriented.

I'm just curious. I know there are features that tend to make some yo-yos more 3A friendly but as far as I know any 1A yo-yo can easily be used for 5A play.
