The original Summit was an absolutely amazing feat in the yo-yo world. For those of you that do not know the story, One Drop and CLYW met up in One Drop’s Oregon machine shop a week before heading out to the 2013 CAl. States contest. During that meet-up they had an idea; make a yo-yo (from CAD to ano and assembly) in three days that they could bring to the contest. Anyone that knows anything about yo-yo design knows that it can take weeks to come up with a CAD that you think is good enough to prototype so a three day complete build is, frankly, just nuts. Well, they did it and the Summit was a success. It has been a little over a year and a half since the original Summit was released and the big question from quite a few throwers has been, when are you going to drop a GZR version. Again, for those that are unaware, One Drop’s GZR line takes the original CAD and machine code for one of their yo-yos and runs it on denser 7075 aluminum alloy instead of the original 6061 aluminum alloy. This results in a yo-yo that is heavier, plays similar to the original but with a little extra punch during tricks. Today I am looking at the Seven Summits, the 7075 aluminum alloy version of the original Summit… which isn’t just simply called the GZR Summit. Time to find out why.
