Duncans all new all aluminum yoyo prototype!...


#1

It’s called the MentasM. I went to a Duncan Demonstration at a local Toys-R-Us and i got to use this new prototype. The one i used was all black, virtually no hubs, and a wide, rounded shape. It is also undersized. very similar size to and 888. except a little thinner.

I didn’t get to use it a whole lot, (less than an hour). but man, it was a beast. It was the smoothest yo i have ever thrown. (smoother than a 888, luchador, Bvm, peak, hectic, pretty much anything). when grinding, I could barely even feel it on my hand.
It also had a good amount of weight to it, so it wasn’t a very fast yoyo,( but it wasn’t slow). I personally prefered this over to the 888.

It looks like Duncan is making a move into the high-doller aluminum yoyo business. And at suspected price of only $80. it’s something most people can afford. I was told it’s coming out in August, most likely at worlds. You guys should definantly pick one up… you will not be disappointed

I think I know what your talking about…

           I tried it, El Hawko had one...

Seems very cool. Undersized is not my thing though.

Wow, that sounds cool. I wish duncan would come to the toys r us near me. I want to try that yoyo!

I would get it but I dont like firstion stickers and I dont like modding.


#6

Yeah. No offense to anyone who likes them but to me it’s friction stickers ftf (for the fail) because they wear out too quick.

I agree, I have the duncan Metal Zero, and I had to spend lots of money of friction stickers. Luckily now I have the 888, which uses silicone!


#8

It utilizes new duncan Silicone stickers (which last a long time) with a deep dual recess… very nice binds and dead unresponsive

I agree… i HATE friction stickers…

i didn’t inspect it closely… but it may have been deep enough for silicone


(Derek) #9

really, that sounds pretty good!


#10

Well there we go. Yay for Duncan!


#11

This thing is probably gonna receive a lot of hype. In fact, it’s receiving a whole lot now.


(Frank W.) #12

For the friction stickers thing they are a good response you just have to know which ones to buy.


#13

There’s only one kind to buy (besides size, that is)…Unless you mean pads, but they are specifically talking about Duncan’s friction stickers.


#14

Yeah. The Duncan friction stickers would be correct.


(Yo!It'sMatt) #15

Ew Duncan Friction stickers.
Those wear out so fast >_>

Don’t you mean El Jake’? Pronounced: El Hawkay
Yeah, it makes sense he’d have one, as he’s on the
Duncan team. If I knew he had one, I would’ve asked to try it
when I saw him at MWR the other day.


#17

I have it confirmed by Brandon Jackson… the yoyo is called the MentasM


#18
