One Drop T1


#1

Is this a good choice for a high end yoyo? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Even if you just think it looks cool :wink: Anyway, thanks.


#2

Very good choice. If you like a “chilled out” feel, this one is tough to beat. I throw mine regularly. I know some people have been turned off by its dimensions, myself included, but I’m definitely glad I picked one up. To me it doesn’t play as big as the numbers would suggest. It is very stable, more so than the summit IMO, which I think has been compared to the T1. I know float is subjective, but I don’t see how this one could not be considered floaty. It doesn’t really feel like anything else, and it’s definitely worth a try.

Thanks! Is it blasted?


#4

Pyramette tumbled. I like my T1, but I don’t throw it often. For that much money, I would get a Gradient, or wait for the Markmont Classic.


#5

Is that a good grinding finish??


#6

its decent, the grooves make it a bit better too.

Pyramatte tends to get sticky in humid weather though


#7

tried one at worlds and while I dont play a lot flow/tech, when I threw it I couldnt feel what playstyle its designed for as the combination of its size and float-resistance didnt match any known archetype. Its one of those youd definitely try out before deciding on t.

I’ve heard nothing but great feedback on the T1. I haven’t tried it yet but it’s on my list. A lot of people compare it to the Cascade and Summit. I opted for the new Gradient which is nothing short of amazing. I have yet to have a bad experience with One Drop. I think it boils down to “what are you looking for?” Do you have any high end yoyos? Are you looking for something different?


#9

This will be my first high end yoyo. I was looking for something stable, grind able, and long spinning.

I can’t comment on the T1, but the Gradient does all that real well and has side effects! I highly recommend it. It is great for beginners and competition alike. My first high end yoyo was a Benchmark. The Benchmark V I still use every day even though I have a Valor and Gradient. It too is a good choice. I haven’t had any issues with the finish yet, but I don’t have much humidity where I live.
