The Freebird by Duncan is a yo-yo released in 2010 as part of the Screaming Eagle series. It was the first signature series model of Hank Freeman.


The Freebird is the first yo-yo by Duncan to be machined out of delrin, and is also the first and only plastic yo-yo to be made specifically for the Screaming Eagle series. It features a low-edged Step Straight body shape, and Silicone Sticker response. The Freebird is designed to be a high-quality plastic yo-yo that could stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the best full-metal yo-yos out there.
