This looks veeeeeery nice! I love the FHZ and it looks to me like it’s just a metal version, or at least very similar. Definitely going to try and get one.

Looking forward to seeing what colors these come in!

They didn’t make the Freehand AL with swapping caps in mind…but if they did there was a TON of color combos available at the time of launch!

Most definitely, I can’t have enough Duncan Organics, the Original AL Freehand is a favorite, though consider to be on the heavier side at 70g with caps;

I always liked the look of those but the thought of the weight put me off. Although, it’s not much heavier than a YWET, and I love those. Similar shape too.

Any of you own the original Freehand 1?

I was lucky to own a couple! Some cool guy on the(yo)dotcom forums found some at a college bookshop in the early 2000’s and he totally sold me 2 of them for what he paid. $18 each (I think his user name was Geeb or something). Ended up keeping one and giving the other to another friend on the forums (Kobun I think was his name) (we did a big trade where he downloaded a crap ton of videos and burned them on to a bunch of cdroms for me (lol I had dial-up back in those dark ages) and I sent him a bunch of throws in return).

Fun times! I have nothing but fond memories of those forums! Me and Kobun (Kobot maybe?) were often so hyper and goofy AF lol. We had so much fun in the live chat :smiley:.

TheYo is what got me into the yo-yoing scene back in November '06, huge place in my heart for it, so sad we don’t have an archive of it like we do YYN.

The future of Freehand is looking really good.

This Freehand ONE AL is the start.

Answering some future questions now…

  • Will there be any Size A bearing in the future? The answer is YES.

  • Will there be any Organic plastic FH in the future? The answer is YES. But let’s enjoy this FH1 AL first because it’s D B.E.S.T.

Happy Holidays!
