Counterweight Yo-yos / 5A

These yo-yos are for the freehand style of play, where the string isn't attached to your finger. Instead it's attached to a counter-weight.
This opens up a lot of new possibilities. The counterweight can be thrown from hand to hand and swung in different directions around the yo-yo to create new mounts and string positions.
This style can be achieved with both responsive and unresponsive yo-yos.
In this section we have listed yo-yos which come with counterweights supplied.

    Duncan Metal Drifter Yoyo

    The best-selling Metal Drifter™ combines high performance and high play value. Made of precision machined, premium aluminum, it features a wide shape, ball-bearing axle and recessed sticker response. The Drifter is the perfect yo-yo for intermediate players looking to step up to a professional quality yo-yo. Each Metal Drifter™ includes a counterweight for players looking to learn even more tricks as they enter the realm of 5A!

    Out of the packet, thirst throw, we got a minute long sleeper out of this yo-yo which says a lot about the quality of yo-yos that Duncan are currently producing. This 'Drifter' Model was originally designed to be an affordable 1A yo-yo but Duncan couldn't help themselves and threw in one of their great counter-weights too. This yo-yo has a nice, snappy responsivity fresh from the box (which can be a little rough on the knuckles so watch out). A very clean, fresh look and a very adaptable yo-yo.

    Alternative response systems can also be used with this yo-yo.
