Some facts:

-Take apart
-Ball bearing
-Brake pads (I guess these are the cork stuff)
-Lots of colors

I think this is like a mass production yoyo. You can’t order one individually, you have to buy lots of them and then re-sell/give them away.

Thanks! I will definitely be going to help break the record, and I think im buying some of those ;D They are like $3 each, which is $2 in US dollars :o They look like pretty good loopers.

BTW, Where did you find that?

Cool.

Sounds like a bumble bee actually.

I wonder if they would be good for 2A?

I’ll probably be trying one out on Sunday when they try to break the record. I really wanna buy a pair of them!

So, I know the thread is like 4 months old haha- But I just got one of these a few days ago.

It’s EXACTLY a turbo bumble bee by playmaxx/proyo, except w/ a fixed wooden sleeve axle. If you reember the cold fusion, it came w/ 2 spare wood sleeves, & a brass one. That’s what this is. I have plenty of extra bearings & spacers, so I just put them in there & bam, bearing. No modding required. Also, The plastic still has “playmaxx” written on it, showing Duncan was indeed “too cheap to change/make a new mold”


(ed) #9

you have a sense for how much a new mold costs, right?

the pogs and packaging say duncan, so why would they spend a dime to fix what ain’t broke. duncan acquired playmaxx. playmaxx is no more, besides a possession of duncan’s. do you really think anyone who buys a tbb/d-fly/proyo/profly/ignite/profire is going to be ticked that the product they bought was originally released under a different brand (which no longer exists)?

i can think of lots of good reasons to take a shot at duncan; this just isn’t one.

I just bought one of these at Cracker Barrel when I went for dinner last week. Yea it has a wooden sleeve and cork brake pads. Add a bearing to it and its a good looper.
Yea I did notice the palymaxx logo under the pog, LOL
By the way what record are you trying to break?

i gought one at cracker barrel it barely sleeps

The Duncan Ignite is a yoyo designed for looping.(traditional shaped)

It has a wooden spool inside,and can twist apart.

I found mine at cracker barrel.

In general it has a 20 second sleep time.(for me)

The usual price is $4.00,and for that it’s worth it.
