Box 52 Tier 3 December 2020

This month’s box is a bundle from Rain City Skills, I find it poetic that we started and ended 2020 with the same company and am happy to bring you the DUCC BOX. In the box is going to be the Ducc V1 and the Ducc V2 accompanied by a RCC Counterweight with bearing assembly, Chuck a Ducc Mask, a Groove Concave Bearing.  The Original is a good pocket throw. Stable enough for just about anything you need, and comfortable in the hand. The Ducc 2.0 is definitely an upgrade. A little bigger all around (but a touch lighter) it’s much more performance oriented.

Colors on everything varies 😀

The overall value of this month’s box is $131.00, Enjoy!

Box 47 Tier 1 July 2020

This month’s throw is from YoYoSpin, I’ve been seeing a lot of what Ed has been crafting online (YYBST on FB) so I reached out and he was very excited about participating and getting his creations out to some of our subscribers.
All mod’d from vintage 1970’s Parker Pros. The string gap has been widened for smooth and well balanced play. All of the cabochons are hand made, and 2-of-a-kind…one matching on each side. He made us 6 different color combos so what you get is what you get but they all look amazing!!! It is a standard size one-piece (no glue) imperial, modified recently here in Ed’s Colorado shop. Check out YoYoSpin.com for more information.

Gap Width:4.71 mm / 0.19 inches
Weight:64.16 grams

Response:19mm Slim Pad Size

Designed in:USA
Made in:China
Release Date:June 2020

Design by Joey made for optimum performance. 6061/SS materials. Really just geared towards great spin times and stability. Kinda influenced from Japanese designs. Wanted that level of design but a lot less then those companies. 

 

This month’s throw is from 2sick, we have had a great relationship with Joey since we started in 2016 and this throw is called the Crusade. The Crusade comes in a red and black colorway of our choice and has the Monthly Throw “MT” logo on the side exclusively. Look for details at the 2sick website http://2sickyoyos.com as details have not yet been released. The box includes the Crusade with 2 random Duncan Counterweights and a pair of para cord bracelets for funsies.

The value of this month’s box is $120.00

 

The latest release from 2sickyoyos is an impressive competition geared bi-metal that takes the classic 2sick aesthetic to the next level – The Crusade!  2Sick created the Crusade to push the boundaries of competitive play. This lightweight bi-metal has a wide-set profile with a huge catch zone and thick steel rings that create the optimal weight distribution to maximize stability and spin power. It plays bouncy and fast on the string and really excels at horizontal play with minimal string drag from the inverse curved profile.

The Crusade is everything you’re looking for in a new bi-metal design!

Box 45 Tier 2 May 2020

The Tourney (Clear Coat) from Duncan with a random counterweight

Tourney Specifications:
Diameter:56.00 mm / 2.2 inches
Width:44.00 mm / 1.73 inches
Gap Width:4.43 mm / 0.17 inches
Weight:63.93 grams
Bearing Size:Size C (.250 x .500 x .187)
Response:19mm Slim Pad Size
Material:6061 Aluminum w/ Stainless Steel Rings
Designed in:USA
Made in:China
Release Date:August 2019

We’ve spent some time working with Bryan Jardin from Duncan to set this box up. Although this throw lanched in August of 2019 the Clear Coat version is unreleased and is exclusive to us The box also includes a little bonus random counterweight to give some 5A may a shot.

Imagine a simple yo-yo design with no gimmicks at all: Fewer edges, a straight-up competition-ready yo-yo, AND bi-metal, AND double-rim? Yep. That’s the Tourney. The body shape is heavily related to our 2017 model the Grasshopper X. This was Owen’s go-to yo-yo then, but he wanted something more suited to his style. So we took all the best bits of it and added a little bit of magic to make it something you’ll love just as much as Owen does. The best part of it is that its great look and uniqueness don’t hinder its playability. The Tourney having a stainless steel inner rim actually plays a central role in making this yo-yo fast, stable, and giving it an unmatched spin time.

The value of this month’s box is $82.00.
