Duncan's about to bite back...

Since the increase in popularity for metal yo-yos this year, a lot of manufacturers have been rushing to get ideas down on paper, to the drawing board, and out of the production line to satisfy the cravings of kids searching for the next best precision yo-yo.

Probably a tad late into the metal craze, Duncan has finally begun to announce the production of two new metals that claim to rival that of other high-end players.

Spinworkx Yoyo Review: YoyoFactory Fundametals - Entering the No-Frills market with a BANG!

It's only been less than 3 years since metal yo-yos started to make it big in the yo-yo industry. Back then, anyone who owns a metal yo-yo would take good care of it, make it their prize possession, taking it out of their pockets every once in awhile just to give it a few throws, then putting them back again and continue playing with their plastic.

Fast forward to the present, metal yo-yos are now a big hit in the community, becoming a more popular choice among professionals than plastics. The increase in high end metals also led to the increase in price. Anyone who wanted a metal yo-yo had to fork out a lot of cash to buy one.

Recently however, some manufacturers have begun to offer a more "no-frills" range of metal yo-yos to cater to the masses, one name in particular would be YoyoFactory, which in the past 2-3 months have released three no-frills metal yo-yos, called "Fundametals" that offer equal precision yo-yo play, with a price tag below the US$100 range.

The company responsible for the metal yo-yo craze in 2007 is now delivering top notch performance at prices that would put most competitors to shame, and today we shall take a look at their Fundametal line up, and see what makes them so good...for so much less.

Fun and Games at UPCC

For those who were aware, Spinworkx was roped in to assist with attempting a world record for the most yo-yos played at a single time.

Unfortunately, due to the recent outbreaks of H1N1, many participants have pulled out from the event for fear of catching the flu.

Reaching out at Youth Camps

Recently, the guys at Spinworkx have been doing a couple of yo-yo workshops down at the American Club, teaching kids the art of throwing string and getting our younger generation interested in a hobby we at Spinworkx have come to love for years now.
