I always have an issue with my yoyos. On the one hand, I love to collect and own high end metals and my collection is made up exclusively of them. I always try out the new “hot” thing and that ends with my having quite a few dollars invested in my collection.
The issue is that I come to love some of these throws. So much so that my desire to keep them flawless, plus the amount of money I have invested in them, causes me to actually choose taking care of them over throwing them at times. The “obvious” solution to this is to either buy someone else’s beat throw or just buy some cheaper yoyos that I don’t care so much about to play outside or wherever.
…But, I’d actually be much more interested in a “beater edition” of the high end stuff I love. What I’m picturing is say…a CLYW Chief, but available with no box, no anno, no included bearing, no included response, and any other cost saving measure that doesn’t directly affect the performance quality of the yoyo halves…and at half the price. If they could offer this, would you be into it?
