From Duncan:
"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 February 2022 run was the official production model for the Freehand's One return."

Besides the yellow body with yellow caps, it was also available in a black body with white caps, blue body with black caps, and green body with yellow caps. Each color version came with the same white Freehand dice with red dots.

You can easily distinguish a Freehand One from 2022 from a vintage version with the same color scheme. The 2022 version has a quality control code—as do all Duncan yo-yos today—printed on the face of one side cap.
