Duncan is happy to present to you a new take on our classic yo-yo design that has existed for more than five decades, the Butterfly AL!
The idea of transforming the Butterfly into aluminum is a pretty bold concept. The original Butterfly design is really something you don’t want to mess around with. After a lot of thought, Duncan finally decided to design something aimed towards modern responsive yo-yoing; maintaining the feel of the original Butterfly but gearing the yo-yo towards a trick set that wasn’t invented at the time of the original Butterfly’s release. Their goal became to keep that timeless Duncan feeling, to make the yo-yo play responsively without sacrificing performance, and, of course, to keep the look of the Butterfly AL as close to that of the original Butterfly as possible.
This design is responsive out of the box. It’s a ton of fun: it’s a yo-yo that will make you smile big on your first couple of throws, and smile even bigger when you keep playing.
Keep in mind that this yo-yo is designed for modern responsive play, so be sure to keep your bearing lubed! However, if you feel like playing unresponsive play, just clean the bearing seat, add an unresponsive bearing, and it will be a slimline sleep machine!
(Default) Regular pads and a responsive flat bearing;
- Half Spec Bearing, lubed
- KK Bearing, lubed
- Default set-up + thin lube + thick lube
