Duncan - Barracuda X
Duncan's famous Barracuda gets a bimetal treatment! Fantastic!
Duncan's pride and joy, the Barracuda is getting a new bimetal treatment in a gorgeous rim. The weight and size is pretty amazing, and shows the complete evolution of Duncan's manufacturing development; they are masters of the craft. With a simple wiede face there's a subtle lightness that presses the weight out toward the very edge of the profile.
No matter what style of string trick you're pursuing, the Barracuda X has the momentum to carry you there, possibly with one throw. It has the potential to become your new favorite all-arounder.
Comes loaded with a M4x8mm axle at first, but can also fit a M4x10mm axle. If you want to improve the durability of your yo-yo's build, we recommend switching to the longer axle.
A yo-yo that is time-proven, used to win three world and more than twenty national, regional, and state championships. A classic Duncan yo-yo that is relevant even in the modern yo-yo scene. But we wanted something better...
Presenting to you our seventh bi-metal yo-yo, the Barracuda X, signature yo-yo of world champion Rafael Matsunaga!
After revisiting this timeless design for the fourth time, we realized that we needed a bi-metal version. We didn’t want this to be mediocre yo-yo, so we put everything in to designing this product.
What kind of changes did we make? First up, the minimal cup. To give the best tolerance, we had to keep it minimal in the cup so it’s an easier product to machine, allowing us to focus on the weighting the rim and giving a larger catch zone. Second, the material. If you are a yo-yo player, you know that 7075 Aluminium and stainless steel is a pretty bold combination. Making this possible is something that we are proud of. Lastly, the new specs make it reliable for 1A, 3A and 5A styles alike. The design is pretty straightforward, focusing on the actual playability, look and performance.
Overall, Barracuda X gave us the opportunity to maximize the original Barracuda’s design limit. It’s the yo-yo you’ll like using both in stage in competition and off stage just hanging out. No matter if you play fast or slow, it’s a comfortable design that you can rely on for daily use.
The Barracuda X comes with the all-new improved KonKave licensed bearing and white Rapid Ball.
