At the time, the Duncan Mondial was considered one of the most advanced yo-yos ever designed. It had the following characteristics:

• Made of aircraft aluminum.
• Rim-weighted for long sleepers.
• Ballbearing transaxle for maximum spins.
• Patent-pending ratchet string gap adjustment has more than 50 settings. Distance between each setting is half the width of a human hair. Steel pins hold your exact setting in place.
• Patent-pending injection system let you lubricate the bearing without taking the yo-yo apart.
• Reservoir held enough lube for you to play all day.
• Rubber rims cushion impact on your hand.
• Developed specifically to the outstanding challenges of freestyle performance.
• Precision-designed in Germany.

The Mondial was originally released directly from its German yo-yo manufacturer "Came-Yo" in 1998. You can see the original version here. Several years later, Duncan bought the rights to the Mondial and rebranded the yo-yo with "Duncan Mondial" engraved on it instead of "Came-Yo Mondial".

Collected May 13, 2000.

Original retail price: $99 US.
