Hello everyone. Here is my opinion on the summit.
First Impressions and Looks
When i got this yoyo, i could not have been more exited. I had thought i was more of a YYF person, and i had stuck with them for all of my yoyoing “career.” The box arrived, and i opened it up. The box looked really cool. It was a white box with the summit logo on the top. I took the yoyo out, and…WOW. That’s all i had to say. This throw looked so amazing. I got the Solar Flare color way (Silver with Red and Yellow Splash), and it really looks amazing. The finish on this yoyo is very smooth, due to it having the Pyramatte finish, and your finger slides smoothly on it. 10/10

Response and Bearing
The summit comes with a 10-ball bearing. It is really smooth, and i mean REALLY smooth. I think mine is breaking in right now, but it still plays amazing. It also comes with Aqua Snow Tires. Amazing response pads. Very nice binds. Not too grippy. 10/10
Feel in hand
It feels really good. It is really wide, so your index and fourth finger rest nicely on the wide rims, and your middle finger fits comfortably in the middle area. 10/10
The Summit plays amazing. Period. Super smooth, super comfy in the hand, and just feels so nice to throw. It comes with ultra light side effects, which IMO makes this yoyo light, but solid. I popped in some Spikes in there, and wow, what a difference. It made the yoyo heavier, but it made it a lot floatier. I personally prefer the spikes over the ultra lights.
The Summit is quite stable, but to me, some yoyos are more stable…say…a Genesis. Or even a Supernova. The summit is still very stable and spins long enough to do any trick, and ask for more.
I stink at horizontal play, but i can get a horizontal skin the gerbil with this yoyo with ease. It is ok at “techy” tricks due to its 46 mm width, but it can still do those types of tricks if you are careful.
Finally, grinds. The summit, like I said has a Pyramatte finish, so it grinds great. I can get a 5-7 second palm grind with this yoyo. It feels great while it is spinning in your hand ;D. 10/10
One Drop and CLYW did a great job designing the Summit. I really was impressed with the quality of this throw. Although the price tag is pretty high at $115-135, it is completely worth every penny.
Thank you CLYW and One Drop!!!
