It features a three-stepped Inverse Round profile designed after yo-yos such as the Barracuda, making for minimal sleep loss during play. It also features a KonKave bearing and SG Sticker response (made with a new formula) for unresponsive play. As with any yo-yo in the Freehand series, it comes included with a counterweight for 5A play. Compared to its predecessors, its performance is definitely meant for competition-level play but can still be played casually. It is also compatible with Duncan's Performance Rings.
The first run, released in 2015, was limited to only 200 opaque white-bodied units; 100 with blue side caps, and 100 with green side caps. The units with the blue caps were distributed exclusively to Duncan team members and associates, while the green-capped units were distributed for sale at Disney World's Duncan Toys kiosk in October of 2015.
In January 2016, the first general retail release of the yo-yo, colored in translucent red with blue side caps was released exclusively at YoYoTricks.Com. In early July 2016, a special edition of the yo-yo was released exclusively at the Asia-Pacific Yo-Yo Championships. Later that summer, new colorways of the yo-yo were released.
