From Duncan:
Working on the GTR, we took strong design notes from the Grasshopper GTX, but certainly weren’t afraid to stray from that path. Our goal wasn’t to make a replacement for the well-received and much-loved Grasshopper GTX design—we think everyone is satisfied with that design as-is. Instead, we sought to create a unique design that compliments the Grasshopper GTX. We like to think the GTR is to the Grasshopper GTX what ice cream is to milkshakes: Similar, but individually delicious for unique and distinguishable reasons. ⁣⁣
The design process itself was intricate and full of small subtleties that made big changes. Working on a bimetal design always entails hours of tuning the body and focusing on the stainless steel ring to optimize both durability and playability, and this time was no exception: We spent a lot of our time honing in on this design. This yo-yo will be joining the ranks of our more premium yo-yos, such as what can be found in our GTX / X series of yo-yos, but we feel this design is a step up from this already-successful series, and we think you will agree. ⁣⁣

From Duncan:
It’s been about two years since we revisited the Haymaker design. When we first released the original Haymaker, we worked to produce a competition powerhouse, plain and simple. Later, when we worked on the Haymaker X, we updated the model with the same underlying design philosophy. With this model, we again take a look at what it means to be a competition powerhouse in this ever-evolving competition scene. ⁣
Introducing the all-new monometal Haymaker BETA! ⁣

As we reexamined the idea behind the Haymaker and Haymaker X, we considered how the competition scene had changed in the last two years. One thing we noticed is that the monometal yo-yo is experiencing a renaissance in the competition scene: The modern competitor sees value in monometal and bimetal yo-yos alike. Recognizing this, we knew what lay before us: We needed to make a monometal yo-yo that packed the same punch as the Haymaker X. In order to do so, we had to make something bolder and wider than ever before; the result of which is something that is truly on par with its predecessors. ⁣

In fact, you could even say the new Haymaker is even better than the Haymaker X in some ways. The punch this new Haymaker packs comes at lower than half the price of both the previous Haymaker models.⁣

What we have here is the beta version of the new monometal Haymaker, which we designed here in the USA with input from our team.
