If you are buying a yoyo, don't forget to buy a yo-yo trick book to carry with you, a yoyo trick DVD for at home, and extra yoyo strings. Learning new tricks makes yoyoing much more fun, and you'll need extra strings, because they wear out with regular use.
Like the Duncan Bumble Bee that came just before it, the Dragon Fly is a timeless, classic, high performance yoyo. The Dragon Fly yoyo has been a consistent top seller around the world since it hit the market in 1997. It has introduced hundreds of thousands (probably even millions!) of people to the world of REAL, competition level yoyos. Formerly the Turbo Bumblebee GT, the DragonFly is Duncan's best selling flared gap style ball bearing yoyo. This yoyo has all the grace and speed of the Bumblebee with the flared gap shape to make tricks easier. The DragonFly is excellent for even the latest mind boggling string tricks! Each Dragonfly high performance professional yoyo includes an extra string.
You can't really talk about the Duncan Bumble Bee or the Duncan Dragon Fly yoyo without going over its history. It was introduced in 1997 by Playmaxx -- a company that itself was launched by Donald Duncan, Jr., the son of Donald Duncan. Yes, THAT Donald Duncan. It was originally called it the ProYo Turbo Bumble Bee GT, and it featured new, patented technology called the Brake Pad Response System that made other yoyos at the time practically obsolete. Indeed, the fact that the Dragon Fly is still so popular today is a testament to the genius, the function, and the ultimate staying power of the design. Duncan renamed this yoyo from "Bee GT" to the Dragonfly, to more clearly distinguish it.
After a massive decline in yoyo sales that followed a great, fad-fueled boom in the late 1990s, Playmaxx unfortunately bit the dust, and no longer exists as a company. If things had gone one way, we might have lost this great yoyo forever, which would have been a disaster. But we were lucky, and they did not. Duncan purchased the patents, the designs and other assets of Playmaxx so that this great yoyo would continue to exist. Like the Prodigal Son, the Playmaxx-designed yoyos were welcomed back into the arms of the company founded by the father, and continue to sell under the Duncan brand today.
