We just got in the One Drop x CLYW Summit in Amazing Looking CLYW Signature Colorways!
The Summit is one of the coolest yo-yo collaborations around and if you haven’t heard the story, here it is!
Quoted from OneDrop x CLYW:
[i]“We had a crazy idea. Have the guys from CLYW come visit the One Drop shop and design/manufacture a brand new collaboration yoyo from scratch all the while filming the whole process.
The result: ‘the Summit’. The name really speaks for itself as this is a melding of a CLYW Avalanche and a One Drop Cascade. The name also refers to how this was a meeting of the minds.[/i]
[i]Then we had an even crazier idea: release a small run at Cal States the following weekend! We weren’t sure if this was even possible, as neither of us have ever made a yo-yo from scratch so quickly, but we were up for the challenge and wanted to try!
Over the course of 4 days we created what we think is one of the best yo-yos on the market today.
Day 1: Design
Day 2: Make a Prototype, while Jason Week works on Artwork
Day 3: Manufacture a Small Run and have Evan from Toxic Strings anodize them overnight
Day 4: Laser Engrave/Assemble/Package[/i]

We had team members from both companies on site including Jensen, Zach, Charles, Paul, Andrew, Jordan and JT to help with the design and testing on the spot. The first version played really well, but everyone agreed that it needed a little bit more weight, so a 2nd revision was done. Round 2 of prototyping yielded the final version and we all loved it!
Charles just finished up a documentary, which shows the full process of these amazing days that we spent together to create the Summit. As well as footage of Cal States where we sold the first run, and how both One Drop and CLYW team members rocked the stage with it. The much anticipated Summit is finally HERE!"
