We have your first look at the new machined plastic yoyo from G Squared! Check out full specs and more pics below, along with details on the release direct from G Squared.
The Ghost is G2’s first attempt at a plastic yoyo, but this is no ordinary plastic. Jake decided to design a yoyo using PTFE (Teflon), you know the stuff the is used as a coating for your non-stick pots and pans. Besides the obvious grindability reasons, PTFE was used to take advantage of the plastics higher density. Allowing for thinner walls and more aggressive weight distribution than most plastic yoyos on the market today.
The Ghost will be released in white with multiple hub colorways throughout the summer starting in late July. Estimated retail is $65. Want one before then? You might be lucky enough to snag one from the G2 booth at Ohio States or SEC.
Both the design and play were greatly inspired from the Banshee which can easily been seen from the angles in catch zone, along with the speed and agility felt on the string.
