One Drop has announced their next budget model, the Gauntlet. Available April 1st, starting at $49 for solid colors, it looks like a comfy, organic throw for all you One Drop fans. Check out their statement and full specs below.
Continuing our mission that begun with the Vanguard to make sure that yo-yos of the highest quality are available to all at a great price, we are throwing down the Gauntlet!
Just like the Vanguard, the Gauntlet will start at $49 for solid colors. Unlike the Vanguard, it is big, wide and organic. Early feedback at contests has been really positive.
The Gauntlet features a full-bodied organic catch zone that starts with a nice bump coming out of the guts. The rims taper off elegantly giving it a satisfying feel in the hand. It is stable and long spinning with plenty of speed.
We are constantly pushing ourselves to achieve our mission for the better of the players. The Gauntlet has been thrown.
Available starting April 1st.
