Overdrive draupnir, inevitable


#1

Has anyone tried overdrive draupnir and inevitable, and maybe can share their thoughts? Or maybe compare to a draupnir?


#2

Are these all YYR? I’ve never really heard of the Overdrive or Inevitable?

I have the Overdrive Draupnir, and I absolutely love it. There’s nothing that it can’t really handle, and when it comes to horizontal play, it’s simply phenomenal. If you like the Draupnir, you’ll definitely like this. It feels slightly heavier, but I think that gives it more character. My only problem with the Draupnir was that it felt a little, well… “generic.” The Overdrive doesn’t. It’s fast, easy to catch, and remarkably stable. You actually have to try to make it tilt. Whenever I go from an organic to the Overdrive, I feel like I’m putting the training wheels back on. But that’s not to say that i don’t like organics. I’m simply saying that every yo-yo can be unique in it’s own way. Yet when it comes to performance, organics usually can’t compete with certain other shapes.

Yes. They’re new signatures from ryota ogi and arata imai


#5

Is it as fast as draupnir? Haha

It certainly feels that way, but I’m not the fastest player around, so I can’t be entirely sure. I actually think it might even be better than the Draupnir overall, but it might just be the honeymoon period.

Can you post pics of your Overdrive Draupnir? The official YYR store pics are so artsy and shrouded in mysterious shadow that I can’t see the dang yo-yo! :roll_eyes:

Here’s their pics of the Inevitable for example, I tried to gamma correct them to make them more visible…

i think the inevitable has a translucent body.

Overdrive Draupnir caught my eye as well. I know they’re completely different aside from specs but the original Overdrive was my favorite YYR to play with

Sure, but I don’t know if mine will be any better. I don’t really have a good camera, and the lighting is terrible in my room.
