Duncan - FH Zero Glitter
This is the glitter color version of the FH Zero.
Back in the day, Steve Brown gave birth to a new style of play, dubbed Counterweight, but better known as Freehand (since the yo-yo was attached to a counterweight, and not the finger, freeing up your throw hand). Through promotion and development from Brown and other Duncan Crew members, the style was proclaimed 5A, and has become a new standard in competition play. The original yo-yo designed for Freehand play was simply called Freehand (of course, it also performed well as a 1A yo-yo), and came packaged with counterweights to use with it. At some point, the metal mold used to make the Freehand got damaged, and production ceased. Many other companies made their own versions of the Freehand, but cries for a Duncan rerun never died out. In 2004, Bandai released a Freehand yo-yo (known as the Bandai Freehand) for its 2nd generation Hyper Yo-Yo Boom. At that point, Duncan finally answered the masses and released the FH Zero; a new Freehand had been born, and its influence is still resounding today. It's still very loyal to the original Freehand.
With its oversized round body, the Freehand overturned common knowledge about string tricks, giving rise to the golden age of 1A. Variable-sized spacers are included for setting your own fixed gap width. The response system uses <a href="http://www.yoyostorerewind.com/index.php/en/strings-parts/response-pad-o-rings-stickers/duncan-friction-stickers-x2.html">friction stickers,</a> which are consumable goods, so be sure to stock up on them. The spacers and stickers give you the ability to customize your yo-yo's responsiveness from tug-response all the way to requiring a bind. Of course, the dice that came with the original Freehand are still packaged with the FH Zero, along with character counterweights. The FH Zero has one of the widest spectrum of color variations available, not only with clear and glitter versions, but also a variety of special editions for sale. The side caps can be removed for modding and extra customization, making the FH Zero a favorite the world over.
