Duncan - Bumblebee
"What would the best Bumblebee in the world look like?" asks the collection model that fulfills that dream.
The new Bumblebee is a collection model that fulfills the dream of "The best Bumblebee in the world." It helped spark the yo-yo boom in Australia and Singapore, and Hyper Yo-Yo also sold OEM versions of the Bumblebee. This is a bimetal version of the Playmax Bumblebee (Turbo Bumblebee), which, after all these years, is STILL part of the Duncan lineup.
Since this yo-yo is only intended to be the best Bumblebee, it is the ultimate collection model and is by no means meant for modern competition play. The feel of the original Bumblebee has been faithfully recreated in metal. It's a bimetal model with a midship weight and luxurious specifications. It can only be fully enjoyed by those who know the history of yo-yos, as it is a curious fusion of past and present trends.
In its initial state, the yo-yo is set up to a weak tug response. If you want to use this yo-yo normally, we recommend using a thinner string such as a super slim string if you want to use it in a full bind setting and emphasize slippage. On the other hand, if a stronger return is what you're after, we recommend adding looping oil and a K String (normal) or thicker.
