So I usually play 5a with plastic yoyos, but now have started playing 5a with metal yoyos. Since I am learning I mess up occasionally and the counterweight will hit the yoyo. On a plastic yoyo thats fine, but with metal it makes an ear-piercing noise. I’m not so worried about my ears as I am damaging my yoyo though.
So my questions are:
- Will a counterweight hitting the yoyo damage the yoyo (break ano, dent it etc.)
- Is there an alternative counterweight that isnt made of such hard plastic. I know Duncan makes the rubber ball ones, but I never vibed with them.
