MarkMont Next

MarkMont Next

First released: September 2010
Current status: Retired


The MarkMont Next stays true to the original. The design imperative was to make the yo-yo that Mark wants. It has the same basic profile as the original with some small but important tweaks. The first difference is that it is made on a lathe whereas the original was made on a mill - the benefit here is improved concentricity. We added a little thickness in the middle so we could put in a Flow Groove response system (the original had pad response). We also added some rim weight to increase the spin time and stability. You'll notice the hub/cup area looks a lot different including a new axle nut that has a unique look not seen before. The finish is soda blasted and nickel plated.
