Box 10 April 2017 Tier 1 $30.00 Value

This past month we were lucky enough to add some new partners to The Monthly Throw¬†one of them was YoYoFactory. For our first month with YYF we put together a bit of a theme – “The Ben Conde Box”. ¬†We included the ¬†Base Camp Flight, Ben’s own Around the World and added a MultiTool because who doesn’t need that. ¬†The Gang at YYF made this a seemless transaction and were very excited to be included in the world’s FIRST Yo Yo Mystery Box. ¬†The total value on this month’s box was $44.00 ($28.00 on the flight, $10.00 for Around the World and $6.00 for the Multitool).

About the Flight:

The Flight is the first YoYoFactory yo-yo designed for competitive 4A freestyle play. Floaty, fast, maneuverable, and really fun to play. You’ll be hard pressed to find an offstring yo-yo that performs at this level for that price!¬†The Flight has a nice simple design that gives you unbelievable performance. Nothing crazy or super radical, YoYoFactory designed a smooth stepped profile with an inner ring to improve weight distribution and help with grinding tricks. Made of a very durable plastic, fitted with a thicker axle and easily removable spacers, the Flight is built to last and perform at it’s best wherever you take it!¬†The Flight has been the yo-yo of choice for Basecamp team member and 4A legend Ben Conde.

About Around the World:

Ben Conde has been traveling the globe spreading the love of yo-yo and documenting it all on his youtube channel (Go give him a sub when you get a chance!). YoYoFactory has been a big supporter of what he does and they joined forces with Ben to create the ultimate beginner yo-yo РThe Around The World! This new yo-yo was created to help support Ben Conde as he journeys Around the World introducing the art of yo-yo to new people. It has a beautifully sleek and simple entry level design featuring a transaxle and starburst response for a low maintenance and easy to use experience. It plays smooth and stable, is easily tug responsive, and has a clean look any new player will appreciate!

About the YYF Multi Tool:

The YoYoFactory Multi Tool will quickly become the most important and convenient item that any and all yo-yo players will carry on them. The YoYoFactory Multi Tool is a small key-chain sized tool that offers the benefits of 3 much larger accessories. One side of the Multi Tool offers a high strength bearing removal tool, intended to remove even the toughest large bearings from your yo-yos. On the opposite side of the Multi Tool is a string cutter, which enables you to adjust your string length with ease. Last but not least, protruding from the bottom of the Multi Tool is the same hex key that adjusts the Loop900 mechanism.  A little known fact is that the Loop900 hex key can also be used to remove the axle from most YoYoFactory metal yo-yos!

Box 9 March 2017 Tier 3 $120.00 Value

We were super excited to work with the OD team again to produce another exciting throw for our march Tier 3. With the retail of the Terrarian being about $80.00 we decided to make a full OD pack to go along with it so they include a OD 10 Ball Bearing, a Gun metal Side effect pack and a pair of O Rings all signature OD items. The mailed box also came with some other goodies but only for our subscribers.

About the Terrarian:
Lead designer and head of Re-Logic, Andrew “Redigit” Spinks, approached One Drop in early 2015 with the idea of implementing their yo-yos into the game and they loved it. Over the next few months we worked with Re-Logic and “uploaded” some of your favorite One Drops into the vast digital landscape of Terraria. You’ll stumble upon models such as the Cascade, Valor, Yelets and much more throughout your journey in the game. As you draw near the end of your adventure, you’ll encounter the Moon Lord, widely known as the “Final Boss”. If you are able to take down this behemoth, you have a chance to receive the ultimate yo-yo in the game, the Terrarian. We decided to “download” the Terrarian and bring it to real life and pull the collaboration full circle.

Jungle Temple is an exclusive colorway to TMT.
