The engineering and design process for the Haymaker X was Duncan’s most difficult to-date. Their design team spent countless hours tuning the body and press fitting the stainless steel rings to ensure durability and stability on every throw. The result is a true masterpiece!
The new Haymaker X is an ancestor of the original Haymaker, but the relation is a little more distant. Duncan made some serious changes to the X, and they are fantastic! They added extra steps in the cup to improve maneuverability, increased the diameter to make this a full-sized yo-yo. and distributed the 65.5 grams of mass to maximize stability and spin time without adding too much weight. The end result is a serious performer!
Duncan team member Chris Makita is known for his flowy tech style and innovative tricks. When we heard he was getting a signature yo-yo we couldn’t wait to try it! This is the Chris Makita signature MKT!
Chris worked closely with the Duncan design team to create his new signature yo-yo. It has the look and feel that you expect from his style and it is an absolute joy to throw! The MKT has a nice rounded h-shape profile with a comfortable feel in the hand. It has some beefy rims for an incredible power on the string and stepped cup that’s great for thumb grinds and compatible with Duncan caps if you want a little extra weight.
