It feels good! It’s like a plasti-dip coating, not glossy like the finished wings. I love it. Gives JUST enough extra weight to it as well.

Being a real Duncan fanboy last night with the Freehand AL 2020 drop, I thought why not play what influenced the original Freehand on this Fixed Axle Friday. The OG Duncan Wheels Long Spin. Back when I was a kid these were my main jam as No Jives were out of my price range and still only available in specialty shops. Compared to the Butterfly these have more weight and a rounder bulbous shape.

I love the wheel design of that version of the OG Wheels. How does it play?

I have a current run version of the Wheels and it is pretty awful. It plays much better if its rattly plastic trans-axle is replaced with a slim C bearing. But even then, the red wheel hub they use today isn’t nearly as awesome-looking as that white one.

If you wanted to use skateboard terminology it would be like a Sex Change where you land in the opposite stance. So a 5a Sex Change Kickflip.

My assumption is there must be a 5a trick (cross-arm to trapeze suicide w hands switching) like this which already has a name. So this would just be a _________ Kickflip.

I just don’t know what it is.

The OG Wheels play nice and stout coming in around 60 grams, have a snappy response to them and are great for STM. The 2016 Wheels were definitely a bit of a let down as a rebranded version 1 Butterfly XT and even lighter with the cut out caps. I do like the bearing sleeve they came with though for other throws like the Bolt 2, and have also put in a Full Spec C and added rubber weight rights under the hub caps of my 2016 Wheels to make it somewhat playable. But it will never come close to the OG Wheels. From a collection point of view there are also a lot of fun variants of the older Wheels, even a Speed Racer version

Nice work!

The Deep State is generally considered “semi-responsive.” Fixed axle would be something like a TK No-Jive which has an axle that doesn’t move. Unless you have a bearing blank in the Deep State.

Uh, what? Yeai-uh! Okay! Just landed a double kickflip (beech KNack of course)! Damn that trick is hard, but soo satisfying. Anybody have tips on heelflips? I can barely get the yoyo to flip that way, let alone catch it.

Playing this BC Black Silver Striped Painted 3 and 1 No Jive from the late nineties again. This is one of my older yoyos that has inspired my yoyo journey. It is my standard to measure how far I have come and how far I can take it. My YYE Type 10 string is nice and broken in, so I’m ready to jam and push my personal envelope.

By the way normal length Type 10 is sold out, hope there is a restock planned soon @YoYoExpertGarrett.
