A new family of straight-bodied beauties arrives: the 2014 Benchmark Series.
The hallmark of the Benchmark Series is that all the models have the same weight, diameter and width. Only the shape and weight distribution is different between the different Benchmarks. In this sense, the specs alone can't tell you what kind of feeling you'll get, you have to test them to find out. There's a striking Side Effect system, giving you even more control over the weight and distribution of your yo-yo to enjoy a different play sense.
This Benchmark H is, obviously, an H-profile. It is designed to give you maximum power and stability. Because of this, it's a current favorite among competition players. The Benchmark H is the epitomy of H-profile yo-yos.

The 2014 Benchmark H is my favorite specifically for counterweight yoyo play. That's my favorite yoyo style, and the one I spend the majority of my time playing. The 2014 H weighs 65 grams and has a flared shape that makes it very resistant to the tilting that you deal with a lot in counterweight play. And the low pricetag and replaceable axle puts me at ease, given that counterweight play is pretty dang rough on yoyos. Lastly, I really like One Drop as a company. They have a real passion for yoyos, and making them the best that they could possibly be. Also, they are only one state away from me, so buying their products is supporting a local small business for me.
Benchmark Series 2014 yoyo is very cool, the way it looks, the way it spins, the way it plays. AMAZING I coud'nt ask for more. Just this one.
It is my favorite because it is awesome and the way it looks got me for my first impression and its spinning is powerful as well as its sleeptime. THE BEST both Czm8 and Benchmark series 2014.
