Based on the YYR designs, developed in the pursuit of even greater speed, Overdrive is Ryota Ogi's first signature model.
Winner of the 2007 Kyushu Tournament, and runner-up in the ’08, ’09, and 2010 and 2011 champion of West Japan Yo-Yo Contests, Ryota Ogi debuts his first signature model, Overdrive. Known for his high-speed combos and characteristic horizontal tricks, his designs fit into his special abilities and large hands, but the extra weight has been cut, making it an unusually large but lightweight yo-yo. Players who enjoy larger yo-yos without feeling the extra bulk will be especially pleased with the results.
The Overdrive’s exquisite design draws attention to an increased sense of stability, especially when throwing horizontal tricks. “It feels as if it’s gliding through the air,” even the maker himself was surprised by its spectacular feeling. It looks very similar to other yo-yos in YYR’s lineup, but once you use it, the difference is obvious.
Not just for winners, but for those who are hungry for victory, Overdrive is an especially appropriately-named signature model.
Please note: YYR uses 7075 aluminium alloy to seek their best performance. 7075 is not a great material for anodizing, so YYR yo-yos have anodizing imperfection and small spot, scratches on their bodies. They seek the best performance, not best cosmetics.

The Overdrive is one of the best yoyo I've ever thrown. Nice shape, perfect weight distribution, all the horizontal tricks seem so much easier with it. It's a long spinnig and very fast throw that can hardly be equalled.
