One Drop Yo-Yos Prescription


#1

Got a quick little message from team member Jonathon Best aka Doctor B about his upcoming signature yo-yo, the Prescription!

Hey there. Doctor B here at your service.

Diagnosis: Need the perfect Yo-Yo
Prescription: Signature Yo-Yo
Prognosis: Most Excellent

The Prescription is the yo-yo I see in my head whenever I close my eyes. I’ve been lucky enough to have thrown thousands of yo-yos over the course of the past 23 years since I started playing when I was a little kid: Wood yo-yos, pioneering bearing yo-yos, and every kind of innovation and breakthrough in between. And when I started throwing for One Drop almost four years ago, I knew that eventually I’d have the opportunity to leave my mark on the community that I love with my very own signature yo-yo.

Give me the curves of the Cascade. Give me the weight and hand-feel of the Project 2. Tweak the weight distribution. Make sure the Projection Profile is juuuuust right. Oh, and Side Effects. Gotta have those.

It’s crazy to me that soon, very soon, you’re going to be holding in your hands something that is so, so important to me. After all these years, after all those contests and club meetings, after all those videos, and after meeting all of YOU, it’s finally here…and I couldn’t be happier.

So if the Doctor could make a recommendation, you should call or text up your favorite human beings and invite them over, let them know you have a Prescription on the way, don’t forget to cook or order some food, and spend the evening sharing tricks and catching up. Then, when you wake up in the morning, repeat that process. Get your daily dose of this yo-yo, and I bet you’ll start feeling better. Not because you felt bad before, but because sometimes we all know deep inside we deserve more happiness.  Will this yo-yo make you happier? Well, all I know is that it makes me happier than I can believe. Your mileage may vary, but I highly doubt it.

During my last trip out to Eugene to visit the One Drop shop, I got to spend a lot of time with Shawn to make sure the yo-yo that we made exactly the yo-yo I wanted.  So when we sat down, we turned on some jazz, and I got to watch Shawn work his magic.  He’s the Dizzie Gillespie of CNC machines, the Charlie Parker of CAD…and getting the chance to sit down and envision my dream yo-yo with him was one of the best experiences of my life. When we saw the first halves getting finished up, we tested them out and kept working hard to bring you this yo-yo. Each prototype and iteration was better than the last by a large margin, and we ended up with a throw that represents me and my style better than anything I’ve played before.

At the end of the day, the Prescription feels like the Cascade’s older, more refined, and obviously more handsome brother. It’s got some float paired with mid-weighting, which means it’s perfect for complex and intricate movements. It’s stable and surprisingly fast when you push it hard.

And, trust me. They call me the Doctor for a reason. I know just what you need. Side Effects included.

Looks like an awesome super chill throw


#3

It’s such an amazing yoyo. I think if I had the chance to design a yoyo it wouldn’t be much different than the rX (maybe just a larger diameter ;D ). It’s so good. When it releases run to get one, don’t walk.


#4

Is there a way we can put in orders if we want to in advance for this prescription?


#5

This looks exciting! Love it in white


#6

a little 'small for my preferences but very cute!


#7

Looks so amazing.


#8

I really dig it.


#9

You need a Kraken in your life. :wink:


#10

Finally got around to taking a photo of mine. I think I prefer spikes to ultralights, but it’s probably too early to make a decision.
