In 2001 the original Duncan Freehand was launched and with it came a change in the world of yoyos. Duncan had tapped into something unique. Although the why was not fully understood, everybody recognized it: the Freehand was special.
In addition to launching a new style of play, the Freehand’s shape, aesthetics, and feel made it into an instant classic. Over the years Duncan has explored many different designs emphasizing various elements of the original, but with different materials and shapes. With great pleasure, on the original Freehand’s 20th anniversary, Duncan is returning to their roots with what might be the best plastic Freehand yet!
The Freehand® collection stands alongside the Imperial® and Butterfly® as one of the most iconic series in the Duncan line, so it was important for Duncan to make it right! This December run is a preproduction model. Available in classic Red, Yellow and Blue with classic white caps!
Yeah - I have to say having played with it for three days straight Duncan (and @bjardin) knocked this one out of the park!
Out of the box/bag it plays like a perfectly broken in classic Freehand ONE - and in some ways - there are some small improvements. You can feel the high quality in all aspects including the caps, the plastic body - how it fits together, the solid feel, and the quality of spin.
It really is an amazing experience to throw this beloved yoyo again and I think people will also find it to be a really wonderful yoyo to get others started on too!
