I got my M1 yesterday and it is amazing! Don’t go too hard on me since this is my first review.

Packaging and Looks:
It comes in a Brown Cardboard Box. It’s not fancy like the YYF box, but it has a very attractive and rustic feel. It also has 2 stickers which give it some life. I really like the packaging.
I got the Blue version. It is very nice looking and the Matte finish feels nice in my hand.
I thought it was a little too undersized at first, but I got used to it after a few throws.
Sleep and Bearings:
The best part of this yoyo is the smoothness. After I threw it, I didn’t even know it was sleeping. The sleep time is also great. I have a bad throw, and I’m being gentle with it (since it’s my first metal), and I still get 1:30 without the string twisting trick.
The M1 comes with the One Drop Silicone Sticker Response System. If I have one problem with the yoyo, it is the response system. It might just be me, but sometimes the yoyo does nothing when I attempt to bind it. It just makes a popping sound and it is really frustrating. For the most part it is good.
$60 is a crazy price for a yoyo this good! I love this yoyo’s value. It is almost as good as the 888 but it is half the price!
This yoyo is REALLY smooth and a really great value. If your looking for your first metal, or a smooth yoyo, get the One Drop M1!
