Monkeyfinger has announced an updated version of one of their most popular models, the Gelada! The Monkeyfinger Gelada 2 design keeps the same width, diameter, and weight as the original, with some other updates for modern play.
There’s a new bump around the response area to open up the profile, and the flow groove itself is now larger to allow for better and more consistent binds. The weight has been redistributed for better stability and longer spin times, and the new colors are truly some of the best and most outrageous that Monkeyfinger has ever offered!
The Monkeyfinger Gelada 2 will be available from select retailers in limited quantities on August 8th, 2014.
