A sweet all-arounder, use the Metal Drifter for tug OR bind response!
The first Metal Drifter was released in 2010, so Duncan thought it was about time to bring the specs up to date. The inner nuts have integrated into the body, which now supports size C bearings. The response pads have also been upgraded, to the SG stickers that are a much more universal size, and compatible with other response pads (it's close to "slim size" pads).
Out of the box, you can drop some looping oil on the bearing to increase responsiveness and practice the basics of tug-response play. Switch the bearing out for a size C, and the Metal Drifter turns into a sweet, light, small bind yo-yo, perfect for casual play walking down the street.
If you were a fan of the old Freehand yo-yos, you'll love the upgrades made for the Metal Drifter. It's easier to throw, easier to play, and still easy to return to your hand at your command.
As a bonus, each Metal Drifter comes with a matching skull-shaped counterweight, for 5A play!
