I have been wanting a markmont. for a long as i can remember and have yet to find one :’(. But does this mean that onedrop is releasing a run of the classic markmonts like they did with the soda blasted projects?
I sure hope so!!!
or maybe it could be marks new signature which i would also be happy with.
There’s no doubt, it’s a new signature model as andy indicates.
The One Drop guys are pretty tight-lipped about it and building up suspense, but the teasers that Mark himself puts out along with other whisperings here and there and I have a sort-of-OK idea of what it’s going to be like. Sort of. And if I’m right, it’s a must-buy for me.
Let me just share the one piece of public information that put a smile on my face. Paraphrasing here, but Mark himself posted on FB that he really enjoyed playing Nate Sutter’s Orbitron 5000 at World’s… and gave the strong impression that the Classic’s design is influenced by whatever he identified as that “special something” the Orbitron had.
Beyond that, it’s just guesswork. Like, I’m guessing that the Classic will have a similar diameter-to-weight ratio to the Orbitron. Even as I try to make guesses, I can’t decide if it’s going to be a wide-ish yoyo like the Orbitron, though.
The Markmont and Next are extremely similar. Next was made on a lathe as opposed to the mill, a little beefier, with a new axle/nut setup.
Not sure where you’re getting this “nothing” alike nonsense. That’s like saying the Project and Markmont Project aren’t similar.
