I'd love to see a special edition SB2 Deep state

A Deep State with Tortoise Shell anodizing and special bullet SEs. One can dream, right?

Here’s the original SB2 even though this legend needs no introduction.

I’d really love to see a Genesis edition Sugar Glider… :thinking:

I like the idea but I wouldn’t want to just copy Tom like that.

It’d be a respectful homage, and … uh… have you seen the state the Tom Kuhn company is in at the moment? It’s not good.

Yes this would be the way to do it if we were to consider this :slight_smile:

I have the original anodize shop details if you want to go full authentic.

I like the idea of dome side effects to keep the SB-2 aesthetic, but I’d like to see One Drop come up with a new dome design that makes them a bit lighter, if possible.

they’ve been putting out pieces and doing more work lately, @Sinister_Yoyos can vouch :wink:

I’d be fine with a regular SE’ed Deep State as long as we get the beautiful tortoise anodization. :eyes:

You mean along with the black cup ano? The ano is important, certainly. But I think the SB-2 aesthetic is incomplete without the part that looks like, well, a bullet.

Deep State could probably use a v2 design @da5id?

I love the original so so much, don’t get me wrong, maybe my all-time fave yo-yo… but it would very cool to see a possible Deep State V2 (Deeper State? How awesome would that name be?!) with…

  • maybe a tiny bit more rim weight?
  • small bearing?
  • giant response pads?
  • perhaps a tad wider?

The G2 Respawn, Moonshine V2, and Weekender is kind of what I’m thinking here. Just brainstorming is all!

I will be able to attest to their quality when my Fat Cat and Sleep Machine come in next week around Wednesday or so.

Why?

Dunno, just a feeling. I could be wrong. Wouldn’t be the first time.

Could someone explain to me what the love of small bearings instead of large in modern responsives is all about?

I think its for the same reason wood fixies feel so good, the extra zip you get from having the string wound around a smaller diameter on a softer throw. I have a definite preference for my small bearing responsives over those with a large bearing.

What is everyone’s favorite string for the Deep State?
