Fencing is one of my go to tricks while performing to a non yoyo crowd. It’s big, it can be fast or slow, looks cool, and always gets a reaction. It has a ton of amplitude while performing and contrasts well with complicated 5a tech.
Check out this crazy blacklight yoyo video from the Czech Republic featuring some great tricks by Tomáš “Kogy” Vondra, Tomáš Dvořák, Michael Malík, Lukáš Pokorný, Pavel Dietrich, Kryštof Kindl, Ráfa Dvořák, and David Stejskal.
One Drop Format:C Specs:
Diameter: 56.75 mm
Width: 42.18 mm
Gap Width: 4.35 mm
Weight: 65.1 grams
Bearing: One Drop 10 Ball Bearing (.250 x .500 x .187)
Response: One Drop Flow Groove
The Format:C by One Drop was designed to be a competition killer of a yoyo, and it lives up to that ideal. This full-sized throw is remarkably stable, and fully capable of performing at the top level of modern yoyo competition. It holds spin through any and all styles of play or tricks, and the combination of tremendous rim weight and One Drop’s 10 Ball bearing makes the Format:C feel almost unstoppable at times.
Weighing in at only 65 grams, the Format:C moves fast through any style of tricks and spins perfectly true out of the box, as you would expect of One Drop’s premium offerings. One Drop’s reliable 10-ball bearings spin smooth and nearly silent, and only get better as you break them in. Their Flow Groove response is some of the longest-lasting response on the market, and once broken-in it holds that “sweet spot” for a long time.
The One Drop Format:C features concentric machined silver rings on the outer rim and inner rim wall, giving it an incredibly stylish and unique profile. It’s easy to fall in love with the simplicity of this yoyo…at first glance you see great solid colors and immediately identifiable machined rings, and the effect is quite fetching. The lack of overwhelming splash anodization is a welcome change of pace…while we love fancy finishes, the Format:C is a workhorse and gets right to the point!
The Format:C retails for $120, and is a fantastic investment for a serious competition player. Made of incredibly durable 7075 aluminum, if cared for properly the Format:C should have no problems leading you up through multiple years of contest play.
