The Duncan Butterfly XT Yo Yo is amazing value and ideal for beginner players of any level but especially those looking to learn more intermediate tricks.
Based on the original and hugely popular Butterfly yoyo, the Butterfly XT goes beyond the original through the addition of a ball bearing axle. The new axle gives the XT a longer sleep time than the original Butterfly (up to 10x longer!) making it easier to learn intermediate tricks.
The Butterfly XT is still a responsive yoyo meaning it will return to the hand with a tug - no bind trick is needed. All this makes the XT great for absolute beginners as well as those looking to progress from a fixed axle yoyo.
The wide body of the XT also helps to learn more complicated string tricks and its take-apart design makes it easy to untangle those annoying knots.
