    T2 in the yoyosam forums told me That the Butterfly XT is going to be less than 10 bucks, and that it’s stock unresponsive.

    TAKE MY STINKING MONEY!!! Jokes aside, the new Duncan Butterflies look like they’ll be fun to mod, I hope the used a different plastic than the classic Butterflies.

    Maybe it’s modeled playwise after a freehand

    I’ve been yo-yoing for seven years and I still face palm when I hear “that yoyo looks totally like a ________.”
    Two halves

    Yup. Clearly ideas were stolen.

    to hdpt…. outer rims are shaped after free hand… looks like the added some round ness to the outer edge and of course the extreme cut away gap.

    gonna buy countless. <3

    ive been waiting for duncan to do this for a long time. the new shape looks very player friendly, and duncan yoyos in general are great collectables.

    if this is going to replace the mosquito and actually has some rim weight and at the same price point… AND! will stock store shelves and not just online… I might actually pick a few of these up just for the sake of having them to either A) give away, B) let people use as responsive yoyos, or C) teach people on…. by the looks of it, this might be a big competitor with yyf…. neither of them have anything on yyj’s entry line though… I love my lyn with all my heart….

    Curious? Maybe somebody could add a little better explanation as to how a Yoyo that looks very little like a Freehand anything, could have been ‘modeled’ after the Freehand?

    To me, that would be like saying that YYF modeled the Grind Machine after the 888.

    I think the Yoyo looks great, but without the text, I would never identify the Yoyo as a Freehand anything.

    is this Unresponsive?
