One Drop started the Benchmark Series in 2013. One Drop's goal was to provide high-value Side Effect yo-yos that were inspired by the standard shapes and ideas for that year. Three different shapes were released that all shared the same width, diameter and weight. In 2014, the "W" for Wing was added to the collection. The collection now includes the W, V,O (organic), and H shapes.
Important: these is an unresponsive modern performance yo-yo. Unlike classic yo-yos, unresponsive yo-yos do not come back with a simple tug of the string. You need to perform a trick called a "bind" to create enough friction inside the yo-yo to make it return smoothly to your hand. Learn more.
