YoYoTricks.com Vanguard Yoyo Review

American made in Eugene, Oregon, the Vanguard Yoyo is One Drop’s first foray into the full sized budget metal yoyo category.

On the string, the Vanguard Yoyo sets itself apart from all other Budget Metal Yoyos we carry. Featuring a unique “wing” weighting system, the Vanguard Yoyo moves at a comfortable pace, but appears to be able to stop on a dime. The amount of control one feels with the Vanguard Yoyo is astounding. This “wing” weighting, along with it’s full sized, while slightly thinner shape, gives the Vanguard Yoyo ample spin times and incredible stability at low spin.

The Vanguard Yoyo has one of the largest finger spin areas we have ever seen on any yoyo, making finger spin yoyo tricks almost impossible to miss. One Drop has given the Vanguard Yoyo its patented Pyramatte finish, offering long and controlled grinds.

Whether you’re a new yoyo player looking for an excellent Budget Metal Yoyo, a die hard One Drop fan, or just looking for a stunning example of American craftsmanship, look no further than the Vanguard Yoyo.
