There is no way to overstate that 44Clash is one of the coolest yoyo contests to ever exist. No matter how cool you might think it is, it’s actually cooler than that in person.
The 2019 Pacific Northwest Regionals was another amazing event, once again setting the tone for the US contest season to come. Check out full results and videos of the winners in all divisions.

The stylish grooved profile and wide stance give this yo-yo a completely unique feel and powerful spin. For this yo-yo, Duncan focused on creating a nimble, mobile, and all-around fun play experience. The wide shape helps you land all your risky and technical tricks, along with enabling ease of horizontal tricks. And as a cherry on top, the stylish groove finish gives you some impressive grind capabilities!
The Roadrunner is impeccably versatile, with a unique design enabling speedy and stylish tricks. So come along for a wild ride with your next favorite throw, the Roadrunner!
The Roadrunner is a fast, fun little yoyo designed to be a great all-around player. It’s a great budget starter for 1A players, 3A players looking for an inexpensive pair to start beating up, or 5A players who are looking for something fun and stable that they are going to totally destroy while learning 5A.
The grooved gap makes grinds fun, and gives you a little less surface area so you can squeak out a few more seconds before you need to get it back on the string. The wide profile and large catch zone makes learning horizontal tricks easier, and the smaller diameter gives the Roadrunner a fun “toy” feel that makes the overall play experience even better.
With plenty of rim weight and stability, the Roadrunner is definitely great for more advanced players as well, but the pricing really makes it an amazing option for beginning players.
The Duncan Roadrunner sticks with simple solid colors, but is available in one splash variant for people who want a little more visual kick. The engraving is small and stays inside the inner hub, and the gap grooves add a nice bit of visual flair.
The Duncan Roadrunner retails for only $35, making it one of the most affordable performance metal yoyos on the market. If you’re buying a first unresponsive yoyo for a friend, or looking for a great beater to work on a new style, the Roadrunner is a fantastic option.
The Duncan Roadrunner is available now at YoYoExpert.com.
