I don’t have one but on paper the specs look like a perfect full sized V to me. The more yoyos I try the more and more brand loyal I am becoming to Onedrop so I like they machined it - just to show support.
It’s true even a “budget” yoyo can perform just fine - so for me it comes down to comfort and what the manufacturer represents. Onedrop does everything inhouse amongst a small group of cool people. I like that mentality. For me it adds something special to a collection. So much in life we are nearly forced to give our hard earned money to organizations that don’t have that - it’s nice to have the opportunity to support companies like that via hobbies.
Me personally, for a first “higher end” throw I’d recommend a side effect Onedrop. You’ll have the flexibility to experiment with different side effect weights. If you play the snot out of it and ever have axel problems - just switch out the side effects with no worry to the yoyo body. If you’re like me you can also take pride in knowing you’re supporting a special-homemade-type-family-vibe-of-a-product.
The prodigy looks very good to me though so if that’s what you want then go for it, absolutely!
If youre asking for personal opinions, I’d recommend OD MMClassic, Cascade second and Benchmark14W third (benchmark is a bargain and a half!!!)
There’s my long-winded two cents
