The Duncan (cherry blossoms) edition. See the original Duncan Freehand Zero - Sakura from 2004 (coming soon!) on which the model in this exhibit was based.

From Duncan:
"An homage to the late great original Freehand, revered in the yo-yo community by merit of how cool it is alone: We are happy to present you with the Freehand One AL!

We think of this yo-yo as more of a love letter to the original Freehand than a pure remake: We wanted to recreate everything we all love about the original Freehand, throwing in just a dash of modern yo-yo design into the mix.

One of the coolest features of the Freehand line of yo-yos has always been the side caps: You can collect 'em, customize 'em, and show 'em off to your friends. Caps are cool. So one of the features we just had to include with the Freehand One AL was interchangeable caps. In fact, the Freehand One AL even accepts your old plastic Freehand caps! Keeping with the reputation that the Freehand has of being a very customizable yo-yo, in addition to interchangeable caps, you can also interchange the bearing from the default full-size bearing to a half-spec, allowing your Freehand to shred both responsive AND unresponsive tricks!

Let go and break the conventional rules of yo-yoing with the Freehand One AL!"
