Mark Montgomery has been in the game as an active competitor, innovator, and designer longer than most. He understands not only the complexities but also the power of staying simple. His Markmont. Classic celebrates six years as a standard in organic design and his newest iteration is one to get excited about. This is the Magnum Opus.
The original Markmont. Classic was an attempt at creating the next ‘best classic organic’ throw in a timeline of other classic organic shape throws - the SuperYo Renegade, Duncan Freehand 1 and Buzz-On Industries Element X to name a few. We argue that he achieved that and more with Markmont. Classic becoming the golden standard in organic design.
In Mark’s own words:
“There’s a really specific balance I wanted to strike. If too stable it takes away from the throws play signature, but too unstable and it is too sensitive to play mistakes (yet this is crucial to allow for easier manipulation of the throws speed and axis adjustment). Right in the middle is where I wanted to be. Achieving this with a simple amount of visual details and details that were unique to the Markmont. brand specifically, was the challenge.”
The Magnum Opus keeps everything we loved about the original Classic, but plays with high grade 7075 aluminum for improved smoothness, durability and a further polished weight distribution. It has marked improvements for multi-string layering trick play, stability refinement, and a new tailored cup area aesthetic.
Strong yet visually poised, it is a new Classic that is worth getting excited about even if you have the original. A true masterpiece brought to you by Markmont.
