The Orbit is the signature yo-yo of 2-time Israeli Champion and 3-consecutive-time European Champion Tal Mordoch!
Winning so many titles requires a lot of change, and the Orbit is tailored to Tal’s precise, well-controlled and constructive combos. The multi-stepped design gives it a wide catch zone to ensure a smooth landing and that little extra security for riskier elements. The weight is perfected to feel floaty with a powerful spin, allowing you to triumph through your long combos and technical tricks with ease!
From the contest stage to #trickcircle, everyone is sure to feel your pull with the gravity of the Orbit!
The Orbit is definitely optimized for Tal’s style of play…it’s fast and plays super zippy on the string, sliding around so quickly it barely feels like the string is touching the walls of the yoyo at all. The slightly smaller-than-average diameter of the yoyo makes it feel even faster, and allows for the just slightest bit of advantage when moving it through incredibly tight mounts and string segments. There is a ton of rim weight here, so even though the Orbit feels small in your hands, it packs a punch at the end of the string and gives you plenty of spin time to get through even your most complicated combos.
The Duncan Orbit keeps it simple and functional with solid color anodizing (and just one fade), but the inner cup is filled with artwork inspired by 1960s retro sci-fi illustrations. The fit and finish are great, and the engraving is a super-fun nod to yo-yo’s “golden era”. The profile of the yoyo is simple but thoughtful, and was clearly developed with specific input from Tal to really mesh well with his precise style of play.
The Duncan Orbit retails for only $44.99, making it a super affordable contest throw or an easy splurge for the casual player. If quick, technical play and a slightly smaller yoyo sound like your jam, this is definitely a great value.
