Indeed. I suspect a large portion of “One Drop hate” is due to people who think their opinions are the only ones that are valid, yet are proven wrong daily by One Drop’s continued success.
I believe an unpopular YoYo opinion is that One Drop knows what they are doing and people screaming at them to adopt their idea or die don’t.
But like you said success is the best revenge.
For whatever reason, my R2FG Brucite has a fairly standard 10-ball bearing:
It could be that those 20-ball bearings really do exist, whether they’re in the Brucite or not. I think that the design is truly intriguing, and it makes sense that there would be 12 balls on the outer track and only 8 on the inner one. Concentric bearings seem like they could be awesome for yoyos. But I’ll bet that if I put one in my iYoYo iCEBERG it would scream like a banshee!
It only came on the orange brc
Thanks, I guess that explains why my bearing is normal. I didn’t even know that they made an orange one until you mentioned it, but I found it on their site and it’s beautiful. I really like the look of the orange/pink fade. That’s become more popular lately since it’s the Angle2Up colorway. I wouldn’t mind trading my splashed blue one if anybody out there is interested in trading
I feel like company aesthetic and atmosphere matters a whole lot in customer appeal.
This can go without saying that many companies have a specific design choice and aesthetic that goes with the audience, but it matters a whole lot in appeal similarly to many normal shop brands,
Examples being RSO having a nice ethereal space/ modern day hipster vibe in their artwork and shop, giving both a down to earth and premium quality.
C3yoyodesign basing their yo-yos on a futuristic cyberpunk vibe to complete the feel of their yo-yos being ahead of its time and completely performance orientated and futuristic (angular designs and cyberpunk themed engravings)
Even Clyw (which I love) for having a warm casual forest nature vibe that feels inviting with their throws, both hip and modern with a nice cabin aesthetic with their throws, giving one a nice calm and fun play style (it goes without saying a lot of clyws are rounded apart from the Klondike which is a very amazing performance player in the company)
You mean more like a banshee right? I love my iCEBERG, easily in my Top 5, but omfg it screams.
No kidding! I probably should have said “like multiple banshees”
Probably not an unpopular opinion but I didn’t know where to post this and I need to vent/have a laugh.
I just have been told about a random brand in the style of those scammy “get a yoyo for free” fb posts called “Fetesnice” which goes immediately on the first place winning on “Watieboo” on the stupidest company names I have ever heard.
I really wish to see what happened in that room, a group of rich enterpreneurs around a table ready for the business:
“Well guys, we have all the machines and we see the yoyo market is having a nice boom, we should produce them, we have projects and everything”
“That’s an amazing idea, we need a brand name, something great, something that no one can forget and that at the same time screams class and savour fair”
“mmmmh, what do you think about Fetesnice? It doesn’t make any sense but it is the first brain fart I had”
“OH MY GOD, tell me if this is not the best name a company can have, I thought Watieboo but it was already picked up, those genious! But yes! Fetesnice is amazing as well, DEAL!”

all yoyo tricks are 50/50. you either hit the trick or you dont
That’s great news, it means I am just as likely to hit my hardest trick as I am to hit my easiest trick!
Everyone should have the same pfp on all Yoyo platforms.
I’ll expand on this with a worse take. all pfp should be selfies.
But how will I express support for my favorite text editor?
Does consistency in not having one on any platform count? If so, I win!

This is some odd gatekeeping right here…
