The Hyper Freehand is a yo-yo licensed to Bandai by Duncan for the early 2000s incarnation of the Hyper Yo-Yo range. It was released in Japan in December 2003/January 2004.

The yo-yo differs from the original Freehand, in that the side caps are sonic-welded to the body and thus cannot be removable by normal means, and also a small plastic ridge was added to circumnavigate the response pad area. Hyper Freehands were initially highly sought after for the clear dice counterweights that came packaged with them for 5A (Freehand) play.

After the original Freehand was discontinued due to the production mold being damaged beyond repair, the Hyper Freehand was the only pure Freehand-shaped yo-yo available, prior to introduction of the FH Zero.


  • This is the only yo-yo in the Hyper Yo-Yo line to specialize in Freehand play.
