Monkeyfinger & G-Squared have announced a new collaborative design, named the “Co-Lab”. Based on Monkeyfinger’s Ape-X and G-Squared’s Triton, the Co-Lab will be released first at the 2014 California State YoYo Contest at an early release price of $100. Full production will be in stores shortly after, and will run $110 – $130.
Production has been delayed, and these will NOT be available for sale at California States. Here’s the word from Monkeyfinger:
Fans and Friends: While we were boxing up the new Co-Lab project, a manufacturing flaw was found that would shorten product play life. As yo-yoers ourselves, MFD and G2’s would never release a product with a known defect. Our Integrity and commitment to our fans prevents us from passing a flaw’ed yoyo to you, the community. While Chris Allen will have a few prototypes you can try at Cal States, the Co-Lab will not be for sale and the retail run will be delayed as we re-work the production phase.
