I’d rather be lucky than good any day.
Two weeks or so ago, I noticed one of the regulars had to catch up on a few bills.
One of the yo-yos he was selling was the Antithesis. I actually try to keep up on yo-yo related stuff. But sometimes time constraints derail my focus.
I had vaguely heard of the yo-yo, but didn’t pursue getting any additional information about it.
Secondly, the yo-yo was black. And black is pretty opposite of the brighter, more visible colors that I tend to prefer.
………And, when it comes to Titanium, more often than not, I like the natural look and lower maintenance value of raw or brushed Titanium. My EDC yo-yo is a Seventh Heaven. And I have bumped it into all kinds of stuff with almost zero visible damage, lol).
I moved on down the BST. I figured somebody would snatch it up and save me from temptation, lol.
The next time I was checking out the BST, there it was…….unsold.
I decided I could help solve a problem. And worst case scenario, I would not like the yo-yo and it would be up again for sale or trade.
So…. I get the yo-yo in the mail and just leave it in the package/no rush/I have so many yo-yos.
……And it’s black/not impressed…. And I don’t really know beans about it/so, no reason to be excited…. And, I prolly have at least 20 something titanium yo-yos/so how impressive can it be?
So, at about 3 in the morning, I decided to unbox the Antithesis and throw it around.
Most of you guys know I am 70. Getting too excited can give me a stroke or something, lol.
This seriously proves that being helpful can be rewarding.
This yo-yo is easily one of the very best yo-yos I have. I haven’t the slightest idea how much time it took to design this yo-yo.
But I would say, their hard work was well worth the results.
It is Amazing.
