The signature model “Kamraiju” by Daiju Okamura, a Japanese member of Team One Drop, is a mono-metal yo-yo with a distinct One Drop flavor that was released last year. Inspired by “Project,” “Küntosh,” and “Summit,” this is one of those yo-yos that you can feel 100% “One Drop-ness” from the moment you hold it in your hand.
And what is impressive is the unusual concept that it was designed to make the trick “Gerbil” easy to do. The focus on Gerbil as a model for specific tricks, especially combos, is interesting. The ease of movement, smoothness, and just the right weight when operating the yo-yo are considered based on Gerbil with its various elements. This also means that it can be used for various combos in a broad sense.
When watching the tricks and combos of the Daiju, it is clear that the yo-yo is outstandingly smooth. He is convinced that Kamuraiju is the best partner for moving the yo-yo on the string in a flowing manner. According to Daiju, it is recommended to use a light touch, and you can bring out the best of Kamraiju by moving it slowly and in a relaxed manner. The feel of Kamuraiju also changes dramatically when the side effects are changed, so we hope you will enjoy the change as well.
