3 New Duncan Releases – Haymaker, Origami & Freehand PRO!


We’re thrilled to see Duncan adding so many competition level yo-yos to their lineup lately. They’re really making an effort to have something to fit the needs of every serious player, and their latest design is the bi-metal Haymaker!

Duncan took the time to get feedback from their team and really put it to use when creating the Haymaker. This midsized bi-metal masterpiece is an absolute joy to play and once you feel how much performance they managed to pack into such a small lightweight frame you won’t want to put it down!

The Haymaker is fast, maneuverable, and feels just right on the string. It has a powerful spin that you would expect in a much heavier and larger model with all the stability you want from a bi-metal design.

Sleek, modern, and slightly undersized, the Haymaker is the new favorite of Team Duncan and once you throw it we think it will be your new favorite too!


Over the last year Duncan has been developing a new yo-yo for multi-national champion, professional yo-yo demonstrator, and world renowned 5A player – Bryan Jardin! This is the Origami!

Duncan worked with Bryan through multiple prototypes to give him everything he was looking for in a signature yo-yo. They thought out every little detail in this design; From several precise cuts to dial in weight distribution to narrowing the gap a thousandth of an inch to ensure the perfect bind.

The Origami has a graceful and quick feeling on the string with a strong enough spin to power through any combo. It plays fast, maneuverable and stable as they come.

The Origami may have been designed for a 5A player, but it feels right at home folding through complex 1A play too. Pick one up and get a taste for the future of the high performance Duncan line!


The Freehand collection is probably the most iconic of the Duncan line. There has been many different models throughout the years with slight tweaks in design/material, but this latest iteration represents a complete redesign of the all-time classic to bring it up to speed with modern play! The Freehand PRO!

The new Freehand Pro fuses the classic Freehand style with the performance modern yo-yo players need to compete. It features a wider unresponsive gap, a stock size C Konkave Bearing, and low walls that make it an excellent player for any style.

The PRO has a new angular profile and weight distribution that provides a powerful spin and great stability through tricks. It plays fast with a light and maneuverable feel on the string while still maintaining a great spin time.

Paired with a matching counterweight for you 5A enthusiasts, the new Freehand PRO will shatter your expectations!

Does the Origami include the clear die as well?

Yeah, looks like the Origami comes with a clear dice counterweight. Thanks for checking, i’ll make sure we get a new picture on the page featuring that.

Any word on Duncan releasing more Haymaker’s anytime soon?

We’re expecting a big Duncan restock soon, Haymakers included.

Soon has come and gone! :-\ Any E.T.A. ???

Come and gone? No way, soon is still soon.

Duncan is processing our order now, but their ship dates/times are all over the place. So ETA = Soon…ish. :slight_smile:

So I guess the REAL ETA is just …ish because SOON is definitely not in the equation!!! :frowning:

With Augie leaving and things getting shuffled around it seems to have been delayed more than expected. As far as we know it will still be arriving soon…ish.

What a crock…Oh well…BillyBobs it is :wink:

BillyBobs? Really? Never trust a man with two first names!

We just got in the rest of our duncan shipment yesterday. Haymakers will be releasing Wednesday next week along with the new Orbital, Panda-Monium, and a couple extra new releases I didn’t know about until we got them in.

So I guess now I can upgrade the release time to really soon. :wink:
