Duncan - Tourney
Wow! This one is the new signature model for Owen Ekblad, who has been ascending the podium at the US Nationals in 2017 and 2018, throwing 5A.
This new signature model for Owen Ekblad has a unique double rim made of stainless, creating a unique bimetal flavor for the Tourney. At first glance it just looks like a normal double rim design, but this one has a much stronger effect, while also maintaining an impressive amount of control.
It may just look like a unique concept, but it also has a lot of effect over the playfeel. We really can't describe it in words; the simplicity of the design is made complex with the double rim wrapped around it.
The name itself is a nod to Owen's first yo-yo, which was a Duncan Tournament! There's a lot of throwbacks in this yo-yo, making an old Duncan classic new again.
Taking the double-rimmed yo-yos to the next level: Introducing, the Tourney! Signature yo-yo of Owen Ekblad.
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.
