CODE2First released: February 2012
For CODE2 we decided to take a different direction in crowd sourcing by making one person's dream come true as a yoyoer designer. Full process details are here.
The winner was Jason Rodriguez. This is how he described his design goal:
"The rationale - I'd like to see the One Drop boys put out something big and wide that's all catch zone and geared specifically for performance, including 5a and horizontal play, but that's still comfortable to hold, has a solid IRG; something that integrates the side effect technology and starts with a higher base weight than has thus far been available with side effect yoyos, putting as much of that added weight at the rims as possible."
- Base Weight: 63.54 grams
- Shipping Weight: 66.7 grams (with Spike Side Effects)
- Width: 43.93 mm
- Diameter: 56 mm
- Stock Response: One Drop Flow Groove
- Gap Width: 4.62 mm
- Bearing Size: Large (C) stainless steel (One Drop 10 Ball Bearing)
- Finish: Pyramatte (tm)
- Axle System: Side Effects (tm)
