One Drop Gradient Yo-Yo - Nickel

One Drop initially approached team player Graeme Steller with the idea of making him a signature yo-yo at the beginning of 2014. Graeme, deep in his second semester of college, politely declined because he wanted to wait until he could give the design process his full attention. After finishing final exams, he immediately flew out to the One Drop Factory in Eugene, ready to begin working on the yo-yo with three goals in mind: exceptional competition-ready play, great looks, and affordability. Graeme wanted his signature yo-yo to be inspired by different elements from some of his favorite throws, and then melded together into a unique design that could handle anything he could throw at it. After a long design session, the Gradient was created. The Cascade type weight distribution promotes maneuverability, and the bigger size promotes stability allowing the Gradient to ride the line between those two forces while still being speedy. It features a large, open concave catch zone to facilitate horizontal play. Graeme decided to add a single "Projection Profile" groove to accent this wide catch zone, adding a unique aesthetic touch. Side Effects are the axle system of choice, and the Gradient ships with spikes. Despite the complex design of the Gradient, Graeme wanted One Drop to achieve a low retail price point, making it accessible to as many players as possible. Base Weight: 63.32 grams Width: 44.35 mm Diameter: 56.25 mm Stock Response: Flow Groove Gap Width: 4.35 mm Bearing Size: Large (C) stainless steel (One Drop 10 Ball Bearing) Finish: Pyramatte (tm)
