This has been cooking for a while now but we can finally announce the result of joined forces between OneDrop of USA and ILYY. The SE Sakura!
From left to right with quantities in brackets: Hair Band (25), Broken Heart (50), Light Dusk (25), Cobalt (50), Dark Dusk (25), Melon (25)
Another picture of the whole lot:
OneDrop created a brand new side effect for the SE Sakura resembling the original shape of the horn.
We incorporated ace laser engraving to every yoyo.
Base Weight (two halves, response pad, bearing): 62.82g
Weight with aluminum Sakura Side Effects: 65.72g
Stock Response: Flow Groove
Gap Width: 4.34mm
Bearing Size: Large (C) stainless steel (One Drop 10 Ball Bearing)
They will be available from the OneDrop store on February 25th with discounted international shipping.
We joined forces with IrPad to create pads that will fit all our future and past large bearing yoyos. The pads are just slightly recessed to provide snappy binds while maintaining unresponsive play. IrPads are well know for their consistency in response and long durability amongst players world wide. We might switch to pads entirely at some point, but for now, our yoyos will still come stock with our signature sILYYcone response. The pads can be used as a replacement for our stock sILYYcone.
They will be available at your favourite retailer soon.
We can finally show you the first prototypes of our most recent design: the Nile
Response: Hot Red SILYYcone
Bearing: ILYY KMK Metric
Coating: Soda Blast (Black/Gold Splash)
Material: 6062 Aluminum
There will be a total of 11 prototypes for sale. You can buy them directly from us via email for 75€ plus shipping. The remaining ones will go to international shops.
Since we have no experience with high RPM/mid-weight-focused yoyos yet, further testing and feedback is required before we decide if we keep developing this design. It plays great, but feels vastly different than what we are used to. We are not sure if it feels “right”.
We decided to go for a final batch of Saint Eels for this Christmas. This time, they are finished by vibratory grinding in two steps. The first being ceramic pellets followed by wallnut shells. This gives the outside of the halves a smooth polish-like appearance while the inside keeps its machining looks. The specs are the same as those of the last batch.
Around 30 were made. These will be the last Eels to slither out of our shack. If you want the reigning micro-yoyo king, keep your eyes open. Those will ship soon to retailers.
Just a little update on the new yoyo model front. We’ve been working on a throw called Phase for the last months. Here’s a glimpse.
We’re not completely happy with the design yet. Some tweaks here and there will be introduced.
It’s been a while. But that time was well spent. Check out the 2012 versions of the Fury and the Enigma!
This 2012 variant is 3g lighter than the original which gives it a lot more floaty goodness. Stability is not affected. This thing flies like on rails. Oh, and it’s limited. Crazy limited. Only 15 made, exclusively for YoYoExpert.
Also featuring our new IRG design, the brand new 2012 Enigma. A total of 25.
Available soon at YYE, YYSR and Yo-Shop!
These will come in bi-colour with a large bearing and some nifty laser art.
