Designed by yoyo player Zach Lytle, Duncan’s new “Magnetude” yoyo has been in development for the past five years. The Duncan Magnetude retails for $120, will be available in red or black, and comes with two magnetic counterweights and magnetic spinning sidecaps. The counterweight can interact with the sidecaps during play for unique magnetic counterweight tricks, or if you feel like dropping $240 you can get two Magnetudes to attach to each other during 3A play.
We don’t have any video yet of the Magnetude in action, but you can watch these videos below of Zach Lytle’s original YoYoFactory G5 mods to get a better look a the play style. Just remember, these are not video of the Magnetude.
