New Duncan GRASSHOPPER GTX! 3/22 @ 8PM EDT!

From Duncan: We didn’t plan on revising the Grasshopper… Until János needed a new one. But why alter an already outstanding product?

World Champion János Karancz has been playing yo-yo for a long time, and throughout the years his tricks have changed with the current yo-yo meta, becoming longer, more fluid, and increasingly more complex. New types of tricks require a new type of yo-yo, and what that meant here was that his yo-yo needed an update.

Introducing the Grasshopper GTX: same look, new stainless steel placement! The new design features a stainless steel rim that’s pretty heavy compared to the aluminium body, making this yo-yo very strong and reliable, but it features the same look because it’s a simple, straightforward competition design with no gimmicks about it.

Let’s talk about the playability. As we were developing the Grasshopper GTX, János made it clear that he wanted more stability to help him perform his signature slack and rejection combos and glide through his rail and hop combos with ease.It took us multiple revisions and intensive design work to deliver this to the table. His last request? He wanted this yo-yo to be the king of horizontal tricks, and we were happy to oblige.

Brandon Vu, a yo-yo YouTuber, called the original GRASSHOPPER X the Lamborghini of yo-yo. If the original was a Lambo, what would that make the new Grasshopper GTX?

Our team has already won a few titles using the new Grasshopper GTX: János placed 1st in 1A last year 44Clash using the GTX, competing against almost every world champion from the past ten years, so the new Grasshopper is no joke.

Releasing Friday 3/22 @ 8PM EDT!


Crazy good deal for a fancy bimetal. Almost historic pricing levels TBH.


I wish it was available in purple!


I kinda agree with this, purple is one of the most popular colors and it also comes out so consistently great in anodizing.


Any word on a restock of these?

Fixed that for you!

Can anyone tell me how the Grasshopper GTX plays? For reference, I’m not a fan of the Hummingbird because of how light it feels. By contrast, the Ex Machina and Singularity are more up my alley because they have a bit more presence on the string.


Yall really need to get this when it drops eventually (hopefully), its too good
