One Drop Cascade


#1

Made a stop down at the One Drop shop and got my hands on the newest OD family member… the Cascade…

The Yellow/Green one is mine, the other is my sons…

If you’ve seen Zammy newest video (or markmont’s BAC performance)
http://yoyoexpert.com/blog/zammy-presents-perseverance/
Then you’ve seen it in action…

This thing is unlike any previous OD… it has an awesome hourglass shape, it feels wider than it actually is - which is real cool…  it’s pretty weighty, would not put it in the floaty camp - but it’s not a rock on the string either…

They came with Dome SE’s - I’ve played around with a couple different SE’s - tried out the discs (has a great feel, but it is HEAVY)… went down to spikes… then jumped down to the Ultralites - that’s where I stopped… I realize that the difference between the domes and UL’s are maybe 1g - but they feel right…

This is not a review (that’s why it’s not in the review section)… I’m not a “reviewer” - just a lover of things well made… when these hit the store GRAB ONE!  speaking of hitting the store, I got a sneak peak at the colors heading to YYE - beautiful!!! (the ones in the picture are only at the shop)

I know I see myself having more than one in the future…

Gah! I just crossed Burnside off my want list (should arrive next week!) and now all of these new YoYos are popping up!

So many pretty YoYos that I can’t have… Life is unfair… :stuck_out_tongue:


#3

I tried Grame’s at NER. It plays like all sorts of awesomeness. And by the way, are these in the picture pre-pro or production run?


#4

I got to try it when it was the Glider inu February. Love that yoyo, definitly will have to pick one up.


#5

These are production run… they just haven’t been engraved.

I played with the proto back in February, as well, there is a little tweaking - it’s all good. Really digging this throw…


#6

Do you know the specs? It doesn’t look like it has an irg at all ???. Bummer.


#7

Yeah, that’s my only complaint with it!

Still looks really cool though.


#8

That looks really nice


#9

Those are some very cool colorways!


#10

I possesed one for a time…very smooth…stable.


#11

Man I wish I lived around the one drop shop. I’d spend a lot of money there lol


(WildCat23) #12

Same, except not so much the money as the time.


#13

there go my plans to get another code 2…looks curvy, nice, I want it,

take my $$$$ when will theses be released?


#14

omg right after I order a code 2… just perfect.


#15

I’ll get one this Friday ;D I might make a review I’m so excited for the shop visit


#16

I don’t know the official drop date, but they are being prepped for engraving, and will be on their way to YYE very soon… I saw the YYE edition, burning ember and a black/blue/green one - all three heading exclusively here (YYE) - I think they look great… I have a burning ember 54, and the batch of Cascades I saw were even better looking - just a sweet color job - very brilliant.

To those saying they just got their Code2’s… trust me, you’ll want both! This throw can not be compared to any previous OD… it’s a blast to throw…

@Zigzag97 - have a blast at the shop!


#17

I will. Are you going to the meet if you are I will see you there


#18

I picked one up while I was at the shop too. Great throw. VERY smooth. Looking forward to see what other editions will be coming out ;D

But errr…are you sure that it’s ok with one drop that you’re posting these? I mean, it’s not really going to make a difference now, but if I were a company giving you the option to buy a pre-release yo-yo that hasn’t been revealed yet, I probably wouldn’t go posting pictures out there for everyone to see out of respect for the company. I would leave it up to them to decide when they want to reveal their own yo-yos, colorways, etc. Like I said, it’s not really going to make a difference now, but maybe in the future… Just a thought:) Glad you like it though. I certainly enjoy mine!

There have been plenty of pictures around. This isn’t all that new, to people that know where to look.


#20

As it was already pointed out, pics are all over the place… Zammy and Mark have been doing videos… etc

David is cool with getting the word out… it sells throws
