A Duncan Freehand II made for the first year of the Triple Crown of Yo-Yo competition, June 10 and 11, 2011 in Boston. The competition was also held July 28, 2012 and July 12, 2014, both in Chicago. No Triple Crown of YoYo was held in 2013.

Some of the original sponsors of the event were YoYoFactory, Yomega, YoYoJam, C3YoYoDesign, YoYoNews, CLYW, One Drop, and Duncan.

The official http://triplecrownyoyo.com website went offline sometime in January, 2016.

This model of yo-yo came in the newer Duncan Freehand II packaging that also included that a CD-ROM of tricks and one set of spacers.

What was the Triple Crown of YoYo?
The Triple Crown of YoYo was a premier event for yoyo players of all skill levels. The 2014 event was a single yoyo 1A only competition. Three "crowns" and cash prizes were awarded to the top three finishing players. There was also an amateur 1A freestyle division where the "champions of tomorrow" could hone their skills.

In addition to being able to watch the absolute pinnacle of modern yoyo play, attendees had access to a dedicated beginners training area with loaner yoyos and free instruction from the best demonstrators in the world.

Original retail price: $18 US.
