YummyFreehand Protoypes in three delicious flavors! Check out pictures and descriptions of the prototypes in the X-Axis Spin Lab. All three of these prototypes will be auctioned off on E-bay. I would post them on E-bay right now, but unfortunately I have too much to do so look out for links to the auctions sometime tomorrow on this site. Remember that all money received from these auctions will help Jason Lee get to the 2001 World Yo-Yo Contest!!! And Whut?!?!?

Duncan Freehand X-PrototypeThis is the first of three prototypes which was donated by Duncan Toys to help get Jason Lee to the 2001 World Yo-Yo Contest. I’ve confirmed with Steve Brown that less than 30 of these were made and less than 20 left the factory. As you can see, the entire yo-yo (including the sidecaps) is made from yellow polycarb. From the outside, it looks like a regular freehand minus the logo, but on the inside you’ll see where the real differences lie…

The X-Prototype uses a raised disc with an inverted starburst for a return system. (Click on the picture to the left for a close-up).

Duncan Freehand Y-PrototypeThis is the second of three prototypes which was donated by Duncan Toys to help get Jason Lee to the 2001 World Yo-Yo Contest. This will now be known as the Y-Prototype. I’ve confirmed with Steve Brown that less than 30 of these were made and less than 20 left the factory. The yo-yo halves are made from a deep transulcent blue polycarb and the sidecaps are made from yellow polycarb. In normal light, the yo-yo is actually much darker and looks almost as if it is black.

The Y-Prototype uses a raised disc with both positive and negative starbursts for it’s return system, much like the return system of a Renegade. (Click on the picture to the left for a close-up). Note: The Y-Prototype yo-yo is actually much darker than it appears in the photo. I used an extremely bright light to allow the starburst pattern to be more visible.

Duncan Freehand Z-PrototypeThis is the third of three prototypes hereafter to be referred to as the Z-Protoype. The Z-Prototype was donated by Duncan Toys to help get Jason Lee to the 2001 World Yo-Yo Contest. I’ve confirmed with Steve Brown that less than 30 of these were made and less than 20 left the factory. The yo-yo halves are made from a deep transulcent blue polycarb and the sidecaps are made from yellow polycarb. In normal light, the yo-yo is actually much darker and looks almost as if it is black.

The Z-Prototype uses a raised disc with positive starbursts for it’s return system, similar to the starburst pattern currently being used on the Duncan Ballistics and Avengers. (Click on the picture to the left for a close-up). Note: The Z-Prototype yo-yo is actually much darker than it appears in the photo. I used an extremely bright light to allow the starburst pattern to be more visible.

Yup, you heard me. The prototype Freehands have made it safely to the lab. It’s a real trip being able to hold these prototypes in your hand and I envy the people who will win these off of E-bay. The return systems are completely different from the current system in production, but I’ll save the details for tomorrow. Heh Heh. I’ll be taking some pictures tonight and will most likely post them on E-bay tomorrow.

All the videos in the Trick Videos section have been converted to MPEG. Since there are a bunch of you who still have trouble watching the DivX videos I decided just to convert them all to MPEG. Future trick updates will be in MPEG but any large videos will be encoded in both DivX and MPEG. No go check out Phalanx for a new killer video.

Clear Freehand Prot oThe pictures of the clear freehand proto (glasseye special edition) are up. Keep in mind that this yo-yo came from a test run and that the actual production clear freehands will not have the swirls and imperfections that are shown in this prototype. I imagine that once the problem is fixed, the yo-yos will come out truly clear. You can find the rest of the pictures in the X-axis Spin Lab.

Clear Glasseye Freehand PrototypeHere’s a peek at what’s hopefully in store for the Clear Duncan Freehand. If you don’t know the whole story, Duncan was gracious enough to produce a Freehand model for me which would be run in an exclusive clear plastic. Steve had his guys run a test using the clear plastic and it came out all funky lookin. Looks to me like someone was having a good time with the molding machine. Ahem. So anyways, once they get them looking right (meaning clear with no dirt, swirls, or mold marks) Infinite Illusions will be carrying them. Now go put on your loin cloth and rejoice! Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
