Onedrop - Gauntlet
Wow! a unique size and balance makes the Gauntlet easy for anyone to enjoy, at a low price despite being made in the USA!
This is a wide full metal yo-yo, at 47mm compared to the average of 42mm. The Gauntlet features a weight distribution similar to that of the Vanguard, meaning that even though it's a wide throw, it still boasts impressive speed and agility and blows most other yo-yos in this price range out of the water.
Just as you'd expect from the smooth round body, you can easily control the Gauntlet as it lightly rests on the string. Thanks to the large bumped response area, sleep loss is kept to a minimum as you bust out sick combos. The Gauntlet was made with the competition scene in mind, and it shows!
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.
