The Summit is a collaboration yoyo brought to you from OneDrop and CLYW. It’s been designed in 4 days by people from both companies to ensure the best quality.
Based on two successful return-top the Cascade (OneDrop) and Avalanche (CLYW) the Summit brings you a very special product experience from both companies.
The Mint Berry Crunch (mint green w/ purple splash & pink speckles) is our exclusive colorway. Super limited to 10 pieces.
Interesting fact: The Mint Berry Crunch is the slightly altered version of our very first exclusive colorway the Mint Berry (mint green / clear acid wash w/ purple splash), the 2nd most sought colorway of us after the Snowpocalypse.
Signature colorways are signed by OneDrop Team Members Paul Dang and Vilmos Zoltan Kiss.
Quoted from OneDrop x CLYW:
“We had a crazy idea. Have the guys from CLYW come visit the One Drop shop and design/manufacture a brand new collaboration yoyo from scratch all the while filming the whole process.
The result: ‘the Summit’. The name really speaks for itself as this is a melding of a CLYW Avalanche and a One Drop Cascade. The name also refers to how this was a meeting of the minds.
Then we had an even crazier idea: release a small run at Cal States the following weekend! We weren’t sure if this was even possible, as neither of us have ever made a yo-yo from scratch so quickly, but we were up for the challenge and wanted to try!
Over the course of 4 days we created what we think is one of the best yo-yos on the market today.
Day 1: Design
Day 2: Make a Prototype, while Jason Week works on Artwork
Day 3: Manufacture a Small Run and have Evan from Toxic Strings anodize them overnight
Day 4: Laser Engrave/Assemble/Package
We had team members from both companies on site including Jensen, Zach, Charles, Paul, Andrew, Jordan and JT to help with the design and testing on the spot. The first version played really well, but everyone agreed that it needed a little bit more weight, so a 2nd revision was done. Round 2 of prototyping yielded the final version and we all loved it!
Charles is currently finishing up a documentary, which will show the full process of these amazing days that we spent together to create the Summit. It will also include footage of Cal States where we sold the first run, and how both One Drop and CLYW team members rocked the stage with it.”
