The 2016 One Drop Benchmark Series!


#1

The original conception of the One Drop Benchmark series had a few different goals: Document on-going trends in yo-yo shapes, explore multiple different yo-yo shapes with the same specs, and provide high quality Side Effect yo-yos at a great price. The 2016 Benchmark Series is the 3rd edition of the Benchmark line and we think it’s the best one yet!

One Drop kept the same 4 basic shapes (W, H, O, & V) from the previous Benchmark releases in order to refine and improve on the shapes already set in place. Starting at $58, the 2016 Benchmark Series is a great way for any player to join the Side Effect fun!


H-SHAPE:

It’s beefy rims give it the most changed profile of the series. Most stable of the series with long spin times and a profile that snuggles right into your hand.


V-SHAPE:

It handles speed well and with addition of the inner ridge near the response the catch zone is deceptively wide.


W-SHAPE:

Competition inspired wing shape. Great mix of speed and stability with a wide catch zone that is very confidence inspiring.


O-SHAPE:

Classic smooth organic soul. For lovers of that old school rounded feel with all the modern performance benefits.
