Duncan - Freehand NextGen
The legendary Freehand sees light again!
It's not going to far to say that the Duncan Freehand had a massive impact on the yo-yo scene. So many players were introduced to bind-response play with the Freehand, and now this next generation is based on the upgraded Pro version, with even more enhancements.
The diameter is the same as the original, with the width shaved down a bit to give a taller, more powerful spin. Despite being 3 grams lighter than before, the NextGen provides a sense of weight and power that you don't expect, eclipsing the performance of the previous Pro version.
Another improvement in the design prevents you from over-tightening your Freehand, which in the past could have caused damage to the yo-yo. Now you can open and close it for regular maintenance without worrying about that. Nice!
True to the original, the NextGen is backwards compatible with the old 48mm Freehand sidecaps, so if you have old Freehands lying around, you can mix and match your caps for an old school flavor. As an added bonus, the NextGen comes with a counterweight dice for 5A play.
*The NextGen may have some minor vibes, as a result of manufacturing processes. This generally doesn't negatively affect play, but you should be able to reduce or eliminate them by adjusting the gap by tightening or loosening it.
Comes with a flat size C bearing and dice counterweight.
