The One Drop "Deep State" with pre-installed silver aluminum Flat Cap Side Effects, was officially released for sale Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. PST. This particular color scheme is known as "Watermellow - Will". The yo-yo uses a One Drop 10 ball size C ball bearing axle and original Flow Groove for response. It has a One Drop "Pyramatte" finish to each halve. You can swap out the silver Flat Caps for other One Drop Side Effect styles and colors.

From the One Drop website:

"We want as many people as possible to enjoy yo-yoing with a nice well made metal ball-bearing yo-yo. There is just something cool about the feeling of your own energy powering a spinning yo-yo. It feels alive.

One of the hurdles in this goal is that all of our yo-yos to date have been unresponsive and require a bind to get them to return to the hand. This is no problem (and expected) for experienced players, but some just want to throw the yo-yo, let it sleep and tug it back to the hand without any learning curve. It's meditative, stress relieving, easy to do, and for many it's nostalgic. It can put you in a "deep state" of relaxation.

We are helping to solve this by releasing a semi-responsive metal yo-yo that fits nicely in the pocket, comes with a standard C size bearing and Flow Groove pads for easy maintenance, and is equipped with Side Effects for customizing the look and feel. It's our vision of the yo-yo as a fidget toy.

The bonus is that it's also really cool for experienced yo-yoers as who want to play semi-responsive fixed axle style, have a nice pocket yo-yo, or just want to work on getting smoother. The challenge is enticing and rewarding.

The yo-yo is called the Deep State. We designed it with flush response pads, a fairly narrow gap and it ships with a lubed bearing installed.

How are you going to play your Deep State?"
