MFDxG2


(G2 Jake) #1

2013 was the year of Indie yo-yo manufacturing, and two standouts, G-Squared and MonkeyfingeR design have joined forces to mash up their two most successful designs: The Ape-X and the Triton. Both in house labs secretly worked around the clock on the project code named Sea Monkey. The result is a 56.5 x 44mm monster weighing in at 67.8 grams. The co-laboratory creation “Co-Lab” brings the agility and performance of the G-Squared Triton the comfort and flexibility of the MFD Ape-X, and the industry leading anodization from the MonkeyfingeR Design color laboratory.
Two labs, two designs, two visions, one incredible yo-yo.
The Co-Lab will be available in limited numbers at Cal States at the MonkeyfingeR Design table at a special contact price of $100, and then online at the communities best stores ranging from $110-130 depending on color-way. More colors coming for the full release. Including something exclusive to yoyo expert.

I must have O.o


#6

Why couldn’t you have these at PNWR? Now I have to go drive for longer than a day just to get one.

On one hand the Ape-X had very little appeal to me overall and the Triton is possibly my least favorite G2 of the 4 I’ve thrown (was a great throw, I simply preferred the others)…on the other hand this collaboration pretty much takes everything I like about the appearance of the Ape-X and Triton (weird steps from the Ape-X, grooves and spike from the Triton) for what appears to be an interesting ever so slightly Vganic shape. Curious to see all the colorways for sure.

I kind of liked the name ‘Sea Monkey’ better than Co-Lab. Looks quite spiffy.

I can’t wait for you guys to lay eyes on the the other colors. Something for everyone.


#10

For me the game will be won or lost in the colourways. I’m very picky when it comes to my colours, so I really hope you guys come out with something beautiful.


#11

Considering the kind of colorways G2 and MFD normally put out, I don’t think these can help but be gorgeous.


#12

The colors Jake picked out are awesome! Im sure there will be one to suit your liking

Fans and Friends: While we were boxing up the new Co-Lab project, a manufacturing flaw was found that would shorten product play life. As yo-yoers ourselves, MFD and G2’s would never release a product with a known defect. Our Integrity and commitment to our fans prevents us from passing a flaw’ed yoyo to you, the community. While Chris Allen will have a few prototypes you can try at Cal States, the Co-Lab will not be for sale and the retail run will be delayed as we re-work the production phase.

so sad… :frowning:
what was the issue?


#16

Oh that totally bums me out!!

It speaks highly of both businesses to admit a default and not allow the defect to be passed on to the consumers though. I applaud you for that.

This just means more time to save up for my missing G2 throws :wink:
