I have said it many times, I do love collaborations. When done correctly, true collaborations are fun to play and bring the best of both companies together in one product. Now I am not talking about those collaborations where one company does 90% of the work and then slaps the other’s badge on the packaging, but one where both companies sit down and think about what they want to see in the design. Today I am looking at a collaboration between One Drop and Static Co. Before I continue on with the review, I have to say that I had not heard of Static Co. before this yo-yo. Chalk it up to my own life getting in the way or the fact that there are just so many great yo-yo companies out there, I just let them slip under the radar. It is going to be interesting to see what they have to offer and how their unique vision melds with One Drop’s.
I read your review. You talked about how it was zippy and solid (up to modern standards). However, how does it actually compare to yo-yo’s with a more modern shape?
