onedrop - 1to1
Onedrop flips the specs with this ultra-wide model.
As a general rule of yo-yo design, the "height" of the body will always be bigger than the width. Even in wide models that may seem to break this rule, it's often just an optical illusion.
But this yo-yo, the 1to1, goes by the numbers, and delivers a yo-yo that is indeed just as wide as it is tall. As a result, the 1to1 is onedrop's widest yo-yo to date. The weight balance is based on the Cascade, supported by ultra-thin rim and inner weights. The result is a delicately balanced spin that doesn't rely on all the weight in the wings, but rather gets its power from the center of the body, which transfers power into the wide body so as to preserve a sense of control alongside its impressive and stable spin.
Swap out the side effects to customize the look and feel that suits you best!
This project started with a simple concept: what if we made a yo-yo that had the exact same width and diameter? A yo-yo that was square in it’s proportions. 53 x 53mm to be exact.
This proportion makes the yo-yo really wide. On average these days, the width tends to be 70% – 80% of the diameter. A very average example is the SK at 75%. On the wide side, the Sugar Glider comes in at 84%. And on the narrow end, the Deep State is 50%.
What is really interesting is that if you just look at the 1to1, the width appears to be a bigger dimension than the diameter. It’s almost like an optical illusion. Put two of them next to each other, one standing up (see photo), and you can see that those dimensions are exactly the same.
In play, it’s very stable and has a huge catch zone which inspires confidence. The spin time is surprisingly long. It feels different.

Yoyo trend 2019:
1. Everything got wider
2.Everything got lighter
3.Midship weight is now meta
I think One Drop made this yoyo as a meme but it ends up playing great, It feels like a wider cascade and the weight distribution checks out. At this price range it competes favorably with C3 RE:Master Galaxy and the Monster Edge, and it does so with Side effects for added durability and customization options. I find brass flats to be pretty sweet on the 1to1.
