Sweet :smiley:

The shape reminds me a bit of a Drop Bear. Significantly heavier than it though. Interesting ideas with the magnets!

Edit: Three different holes in the counterweight is stellar too! Wouldn’t mind that on normal CW’s


#3

are those stacks?


#4

yes but thy have magnets in them too, as far as I know.


#5

pondering the purpose. Look like a fun throw tho!


#6

A while back I saw a video or two of something like this (by Duncan)… Absolutely intriguing and just plain out of this world.


#7

Magneto had something to do with this…

I heard he had a yo coming out for him


#8

If you’d all just follow the link pretty much every one of your questions would be answered. You can see the concept in action, as well as a 2nd place BAC 3A video of it back in 2010.

YoyoNews is some boss quality stuff anyway. :wink:


#9

That vid is of g5s


#10

wow looks fun , cant wait!


#11

I never said they were Magnetudes in use. I said the concept, the magnets, could be seen in action.

I want some of those CWs with three holes and no magnets in them. Would be awesome.

Edit: Whoops, didn’t see the video was already in the yoyonews link.

Freaking finally this is coming out. Ive only had to wait my whole yoyo career for this to happen.


#14

Magnetic counterweights? First.

Haha, just kidding :slight_smile:

I’m really excited for these to come out. Ever since I saw that magnetic stacks video I’ve been pumped. Although, those stacks look really heavy…


#15

I more interested on the small bearing rather than magnets.

it’s a cool concept though…


#16

looks like we’ve got the Full Metal FHZ, and I dont mean the Metal Zero. This actually has proper pads. Nice!

FINALLYYYY
I’ve been waiting for this :slight_smile:


#18

This is awesome! I’m really glad to see Duncan stepping up their game. I can definitely see this one becoming a collectors item. Excited to see the Strix too.


#19

The YWET is already basically a full metal FHZ.


#20

Yes, shape wise. But it also has really weird internals, such as a strange response and C bearing. This is just like a full metal fhz with proper pads.
