The Silverback King is a return top produced in collaboration by King Yo Star and MonkeyfingeR Design. It was first announced in February 2016, and was released worldwide on March 12th, 2016.


The Silverback King is an offstring return top made of delrin, developed over four stages of prototyping and tested for durability on every surface. Each aspect of its design is well thought-out and feels perfectly well-finished, fitting comfortably in the user's hand with a weight distribution that suits any offstring playing style, from regenerations to fast trick combos.

Being the first offstring model made by any of these two fine Canadian brands, the Silverback King was designed to bridge the gap between the ideal throw for beginners in learning offstring play and a competition-ready machine for skilled players. It comes included with two different C-bearings; a 10-ball grooved unit that is pre-installed on the return top as a default option, and a standard 8-ball bearing. It also comes packed with three stickers, spare response pads, a throw glove, and two custom Monkey Hanger strings from MonkeyfingeR.
