Tyler; the strengths of the Gradient are what ‘you’ bring to it.
The Gradient was totally designed and manufactured by Yoyo Making Masterminds. They have already established One Drop as one of the very Top of the Crop,Yoyo makers.
I honestly don’t think One Drop can produce a ‘bad’ Yoyo. I really don’t. And consider that they have always subjected their Proto yoyos to extensive field testing. They are ‘never’ in a hurry to release a New Yoyo model. They believe in a very well established form of procedure…‘Anything short of doing something right; is doing it wrong’
One Drop doesn’t make Mistakes. They make High Performance yoyos. That is what they do.
The only potential Weak link in the Equation; is not bringing enough Game; to Power up the Equipment.
Delete the ‘Sleep time’ concerns from your Mind. You are focusing on something with no concrete relevance.
The Gradient is More than you probably need. But only a Wimp would fear buying a Car with ‘a little too much Horsepower’.
The One Drop Gradient was designed to be a Trick Machine.
It just needs ’ a Driver’. Lol
I wouldn’t kid you.
