Great topic!! A few things I would like to see are as follows:

Being able to pick the SE's for your throw. (I know this would be very hard to do)
More unengraved special editions. (Alien Autopsy Dietz, Green Haze Dietz)
A small run of the M1, P2 and Y Factor once a year.
A Ti SE throw.
Something in the 52 Diam range.
A Brett Grimes signature throw.

I don't think it would be short or boring at all. Work with me on this...

First, we bring in a big time movie director, or, lacking the funds (assuming the National Endowments for the Arts refuses to sponsor us...) use someone local like Dang or Ibs. Next, we create an amazing movie set, complete with water fountains, fireworks, and dancing girls (who doesn't like those!). Then, we have a casting call for lots of two-bit acting/yoyo-types. For the screenplay I suggest a William Shakespeare historical play, or commission a new one from the team of Lady Gaga and Brian Eno...

This is going to be so amazing!

To be continued.....

I already posted a topic on this - but I want to see Novus boxes with cool anodized colors and splashes and... ?

Oh yeah, and a really cool Aluminum Shifter knob for my truck would be sweet. With a big, fat OD logo on the top.

A team colorway could be interesting, colabs are always awesome, I would LOVE to see something around 52mm by 42mm but I think it would be sweet to see Shawn and David's take on the slim line throw (Silver Bullet, ILYY's new slim yoyo, Cold Fusion, etc).

As far as videos, skills or not Shawn, I'd almost like to see you guys do a semi documentary/walk through of daily One Drop operations......just throw a little while talking about the goings on at OneDrop :D . Just a thought.

I'd love to see Side Effect and hex nut versions of every yoyo in One Drop's catalog. A Side Effect equipped Project and a hex nut CODE1? Yes. I want that very much.

I'd also love to see team edition colorways. Maybe even player specific colorways (like the Zach Gormley Sasquatch and the "everyone ever" Genesis). I think a Zammy-zam-zoom-man-type colorway would be terrific.

Also, now that Zammy and Brett are on the team together, maybe we can see some joint tutorials? It would work like this: Zammy comes up with a trick and Brett does the tutorial in high speed. Then Brett comes up with a trick and Zammy puts a Moebius twist on it. They both really excel at making great tutorials, why not put up a tutorial section on One Drop's website?

Other than that, I just want more yoyos. Special editions of 50 rather than 20. Releases of 400 rather than 100. I know there are plenty to go around as it is, but more isn't always a bad thing. I think the market would buy them up in a heartbeat (like we're all seeing already).

Even if none of those things happen, I'm still going to be happy as clams. I love One Drop's yoyos. I'll never stop throwing One Drop's yoyos. As long as you guys keep making them, I'll keep buying them, breaking them, and fixing them up.

new color ways on old OD throws, like a few runs or P2s and Y-factors with Cherry Blossom, gray matter fade, alien autopsy.

a ODxGen-Yo collab that would look like an essence, feature SE, and sport the gen-yo beadblast i like with a neat OD ano job

A Sovereign 2 that is full sized and that has titanium Side Effects!
Or a One Drop/3YO3 collaboration to make a titanium Bassline with Side Effects.

Either one would be epic.

A Side Effect that can be more permanently customized. Say, for example, they took the ultralights and threaded the recess/ 'hole'. If those threads were sized for a standard metal screw, I could have a field day at the hardware store. The lego ones are neat, but sometimes I want to lose an eye on a screw instead.

Some Side Effect 'packages' where you can get a bunch for a slight volume discount or maybe one price that includes shipping. Maybe a stunt package with RSMs, stunt pegs and spikes. The indecisive package with ultralights and superheavies. The metal mixer with a couple versions of the same SEs in brass and aluminum. And so on...

How about a copper plated SE? That green patina would look pretty sweet at the center of my Nickel Code 1. Not sure how those two metals would get along though.

Finally, as a golfer, I can't forget the raw finish and/or gun metal finish that comes on some wedges. It'd be pretty cool to see a Side Effect age like a raw Vokey. If rust produces spin and reduces glare in golf, it surely has to do the same on a yoyo right? :?

I just want them continue to do what they have done, remain innovative in the tech they introduce or enhance and in the way they involve the community in their business.

One thing I would love to see if it is possible. I would love to see each One Drop Team member give a video tutorial of their one favorite trick with maybe an explanation of why it is their favorite trick, even if it is just rock the baby. Now when I say each team member, I mean the owners as well. I am sure there are some great stories in this group and it would be an awesome way for the community to get to know the people involved with this company.
