One Drop has been on fire lately with their Side Effect tech enabled yo-yos. When the Side Effect axle system was introduced it was left for their much more expensive designs, leaving their lower cost yo-yos to use a tapped axle system. After perfecting the machining and construction of the Side Effects the company was able to finally give their customers something that they had been requesting, lower cost Side Effect yo-yos. Today it is not uncommon to find one with a sub $60 price tag. Now they are back with a new design, giving their customers something they have requested in the past as well… a heavier base weight, Side Effect yo-yo. Usually their Side Effect yo-yos start with a lighter base weight (the weight without stock Side Effects) and then it is up to the end user to customize the yo-yo to make it heavy enough to hit their preferences. The problem is that many criticized this because it forced the weight increases to the center of the yo-yo when they wanted more weight at the rims. Enter their latest design, the DownBeat. A yo-yo that starts out with the heaviest base weight that One Drop offers. Let’s get to work and see what it has to offer.Click here to continue reading the review.
