New Responsive Duncan Freehand & Splash Barracudas!


#1

FREEHAND – RESPONSIVE:

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 new Freehand fuses the classic Freehand style with the performance modern yo-yo players need to compete. It features a wider catch zone, low walls, and is easily upgradable for unresponsive play with a size C bearing.

The Freehand 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, the new Freehand is the perfect throw to start you on your 5A journey!

How can you do freehand with a responsive yoyo?


#3

That’s an interesting question, that’s never come across my mind until you brought it up :smiley:

I guess you can still do the basics like with 1a, beestings and stuff like that are still doable.


#4

I dunno, Steve Brown can probably show you…

You can easily do some basic freehand tricks with a responsive yo-yo. Most people don’t attempt 5A until they get decent at 1A, but the responsive Freehand is a good option for people to try out either style form the start.

I don’t suppose the pads/bearing/axle will be available on their own?

Even just the pads would be neat.


#6

Not sure if they plan to release the pads. They seem similar to the thicker CBC pads though since they sit above the groove a bit.

The bearing is the same size as the CBC half spec or YYJ narrow bearings, and the axle is just a nut/bolt system so I doubt they will be sold separately.


#7

Steve Brown’s immune to gravity. He could probably do a Brent Stole with a FAST 201.
