I really see no way around avoiding things getting broke when you are doing Around The Worlds, World Tours, Sky Binds or any high Hopping upwards style Tricks. Especially if you are combining any of these, the real trick is to not get hurt yourself.
I can remember the first time I “Around The Worlded” my first DUNCAN Imperial straight into an old, heavy metal ceiling fan with no lights of any kind. The Yo-Yo broke off the string and dropped right on my noggin. The next was into a chandelier at the Mall with little fragments dropping from the ceiling. Those were the first early days with Around The World and a big old clunky plastic DUNCAN that would occasionally turn into a projectile. Many broken strings, many broken Yo-Yo’s. The Strings themselves were especially cheap and undurable crap back then. To find out what I’m talking about, open 1 out of 3 or maybe more new Imperials or Butterflys from retail today and the Axle will snap the Loop on the stock String with just a little bit of use.
I doubt I’ve seen the last of the Yo-Yo going into the Ceiling Fan or breaking the Ceiling Fan’s Lighting or Light Bulb. It still happens to me every now and then, for instance… Just last week I read that One Drop weighted Yo-Yo Thread and took my Torque up to like 75 Grams, that was a bad idea. First, I ripped the Weight Rims off my SkyHawk and lightly epoxied them to my Torque. I then tried Suiciding and it hit the Light Fixture and broke it but I still landed it back into Trapeze and then Sky Binded it into the Ceiling Fan Blade and it broke off. It was good after I fixed everything but still I’m glad I didn’t hit myself.
