Completely flush side effects possible?


#1

Wondering if One Drop has ever considered trying to design a yoyo and side effect system that lays completely flush? Might be require a slight rethink, but seems entirely possible. The Yoyojoker EX system uses discs with O-rings that use friction to lock into the yoyo, leaving a flat surface. Combining that, with the side effect bearing post system, would be amazing.

Ultralights lay flush, and side effects do use o rings in a similar fashion

Well i guess technically they lay flush with the conical protrusion, but certainly not with the hub. I suppose you could make the body extremely thick to make them flush, but that would be heavy and terrible.

I want this aesthetic:

I think the point of the protrusion is so every side effect fits. They are made so they are all interchangeable


#5

With how they do the current system you would have to raise the area around the system or have a very wide se. Both would add a lot of center weight, unless something lighter than aluminum was used.


#6

Shorter axle? Then they don’t need to be as long (the actual se).

Edit: clarifying

The Side Effect o-rings only serve one purpose: hold the Side Effect in place while screwing the yoyo together. They do not assist in locking the Side Effects - taper friction is the secret sauce for how it works.
