In April 2017, YoYoRecreation released a POM version of the Gargantua. The POM Gargantua retains the body shape of the original, but is made of POM as the name indicates. The yo-yo's size, combined with POM's high density, gives it the kind of spin power usually associated with full-metal yo-yos. Its catch zone is blast-treated to give it a smooth satin finish, which giving it a totally different feel compared to the original Gargantua. Because of the nature of POM, this yo-yo is more susceptible to vibrations while spinning than the original Gargantua, and is not shipped with a narrow bearing as a result.
