Do you know what comes up when you Google the word “metropolis?” Go ahead, take a second and do that.
The first search item that came up for me was the 1927 German science-fiction film Metropolis. I won’t bore you with a summary, though if you’re a big movie buff you should probably watch it. The main thing you need to know is that the movie Metropolis is set in the future, in the year 2026 (a much more distant future then), in a dystopian world.
Now, I’m pretty sure Duncan didn’t name this yoyo after this old film. But, being that the classic film in placed in the distant future, I must ask: Is this the beginning of the future for Duncan? I believe it is.
Duncan is well known, even to non-yoyoers, as the company who gave us the imperial and the butterfly. Duncan is now showing us what they have to offer for the modern thrower. They’re stepping up their game, offering modern throwers what they are demanding, things like C size bearings and recessed response systems that can take flowable silicone if desired. Duncan, as usual, is also doing all this at an affordable price point.
So let’s test the Metropolis and see what Duncan has made for us, the modern thrower!
