The Abduction is designed to tackle tricks that require high precision and focus, everything Elliot wanted in a signature model. He loved the shape of the Ignition, but wanted a yo-yo that had less of that ‘rock at the end of the string’ feeling that the ignition had.
They went back to the drawing board with the ignition shape as the base. They increased the diameter by 2mm, and changed the material to 7075 Aluminium instead of 6061+SS. They beefed up the rims and distributed more weight towards the inner rim area for a lighter and more maneuverable feel in play.
