Drop Bear Review

  • When there was that moment of confusion with the terminology I was confusing the gap and the catch zone.
  • I am still not sure about the response i think it is a one drop flow grove.
  • I forgot to mention that this yo-yo is very stable and the only way to fix a bad throw is to recall it and throw it again.
  • This throw is defiantly worth the money.
Here are the pictures

Here is a shot with the grove and the response

Here is a shot of the bearing

Here are the specs

Here is a motion shot

Review notes for Drop Brear

  • This yo-yo has a pretty nice bearing, it is a centro tac bearing however I do like concave bearings best.
  • It is has a pretty light feel to it and even though I typically like yo-yos with a heavier feel to them.
  • It is also bead blasted so it is not as smooth as a yo-yo that has a pyrite finish however it does grind quite well.
  • For those of you have seen my twitter page you know that I also throw a Toxic Hazmat and the Drop Bear is a little thinner then the Hazmat it has about the width  of the dv888 for those of you who have thrown that.
  • I've found that since it has a smaller width is you thrown say a double or nothing, and the strings are closer together it is alot easier to land it on just the string you want to.
  • This yo-yo really has a nice design, which you will be seeing soon because I have decided I will do a video review on it.

Sunshine Kite Company

So I was down in L.A. recently and went to a shop about thirty minutes away in the city of Redondo Beach on the fisherman's wharf. This is one cool shop they have a pretty good selection of yo-yofactory yo-yos from the cheap plastic ones to their top of the line yo-yos such as the supperstar. They also have yo-yo classes outside the shop and times are posted on their website. I will list the website and address under yo-yo shops not under online stores because they don't have nearly as many yo-yos online as they do in the store.

New Club

This club is new and I don't have any one in other than myself it if you want to be in it I am going to be making a facebook fan page or you can follow the blog. Once i get at least five members I will start setting up meets. I will also try my very best to find yo-yo stores across the country for if you go on vacation and might have one near you or if you don't live in Illinois or Missouri
