Highwall serenity.


#1

Anyone else feel like they are just at home and peaceful with a nice organic Highwall like the duncan raptor?


#2

I love that shape !!! ;D that’s why i’m stoked for the new Duncan Freehand AI coming out soon !!! :smiley:


#3

Freehand AI hmm guess ill have to do some research.


#4

Literally an aluminum FreeHand. I’m pretty sure there’s no info as it was sort of a secret at Worlds. I tried it at Worlds and I must say they are amazing. Butter smooth and metal with plastic caps. How much more classy can you get?


#5

Sounds great I can’t wait.


#6

It’s supposed to be 110-120 dollars though, which is a bit disappointing (for me at least).


#7

No there’s info, go onto Duncan’s instagram or Facebook all info is there. It says they’ll have a limited amount at Nats and then starting shipping out to retailers 11/1.($110)

It looks amazing for 5a but I’m not sure how much I’d use it for 1a so I don’t know if I should get it…


#8

Prolly best for more advanced 5A players. Or at least 5A players that don’t drop their yoyos much, when they play over concrete or asphalt.

I could imagine a freehand shape in aluminum, turning into quite a Mess, if somebody was blazing away over hard ground and having little bouncing accidents.

But then again, no metal yoyo actually likes getting up close and personal with hard ground.

I just do my weak 5A with an MG. But over grass, hey I’m no fool, lol.

Will the AL Freehand be C bearing size?

Sorry I don’t Facebook or Instagram

FH AL sounds really interesting but honestly the $120 pricepoint sounds a bit high considering the Barebones MG is $200. $60-80ish would’ve made a lot more sense imo. I also would’ve preferred to see it have an A bearing and use pads but I wouldn’t be surprised if I was one of the few. All those concerns aside, I’m still intrigued and would definitely pick one up if it got favorable reviews.

I too would have rather seen it stick with an A bearing. Prolly feels more like a Raptor than a Freehand, though I’m making a mistake already by expecting an aluminum rehash to feel anything like a plastic to begin with.

Regarding the original topic at hand, yes, organic highwalls are my go-to.


#11

How do you know if a throw has a high wall? Does the shutter? The g funk?


#12

Well… High wall has a higher wall. You cant explain it so just refer to this picture via Yoyowiki.

The right has a “high” wall. The left has a low wall…

Here is a FHZ that was “High walled.”


#13

There needs to be a yoyo called the Highwall Serenity.

As for me, I do enjoy hucking around my Kyo DNS.


#14

So is highwall or low wall good for horizontal?


(DOGS) #15

Low wall and flared profile is generally prescribed. So like the complete opposite.


#16

So thats what the shutter is? And G funk?


#17

I wonder if this is going to suck as bad as every other aluminum version of the fh.
Love my highwall yoyos, MG is my go to throw.


(DOGS) #18

I presume this one will be fine because it doesn’t follow actual FHZ construction like the MFH and Drifter did.


#19

That is correct. Both of those are generally accepted as “low walled” yoyos.


#20

Raptor = boss to me. Just my flow I guess anything you folks could recommend that would be similar?
