DING! How can you fix this?


#1

So, I just dinged my Avalanche while doing a Eli Hops. It just barely scratched the paint. Took off the top coating. Is there any way I can fix this? :’(
Also, I feel terrible for scratching such a majestic yoyo. :’(


#2

You can sand it (not reccomended ) or id repaint it or recoat it if you know ho. But really it is fine and you should probably leave it with a litle scratch. Its made to play good not look good.

It’s a battle scar. dont worry about it, this happens, all it says is that you are progressing because you are obviously trying something different or pushing yourself. i was super upset the first time i dinged my 54… now it has around 3… but it still plays smooth

so, dont drive yourself nuts worrying about it.


#4

I have 3 scratches and 2 big dents and 2 cracks on my YYJ Legacy. The dents are like big dents so that when you look the yoyo from the top, it isn’t a full circle. My cracks are fairly small but really, all these damages together drive me to nothing. Not nuts, nothing. So you are actually lucky to just get a paint scratch onn any yoyo.


#5

if you can find a sharpie of the right color, you can mark over it, but it will still remain. if there is a ding, it’s there until you sand it or get it blasted.


#6

I keep throwing my yoyo down and it hits the ground so when i grind it scratches up my arm!!!

P.S. It hurts!!! :’(


#7

Maybe you need to shorten your string, or stand on a stool.


#8

I lolled


#9

I really don’t understand why some kids refuse to shorten their string… it helps a lot to have the proper lengthed string.


#10

I leave the dings how they are unless they are sharp, then I just barely sand the ding only with 400 to 1000 grit sand paper


#11

Don’t sand your dings unless they cut you.


#12

why not get a new one, a legacy is only 20 bucks


#13

Actually, I am only allowed to spend $45 for a few years on yoyo’s. I;d rather get a Raptor.

my DV888 dented on the edge
but only a little
is that dent gonna be a trouble for the yoyo?
a little dent only 0.1 millimeter
i’m afraid that gonna disturb the balance
how i supossed to do to test the balance??
thank you
i’m sorry if i’m asking a silly question
but DV888 was my 2nd yoyo
i’m still newbie
i’m yoyoing just 1 and half month ago


#15

I don’t think you have anything to worry about. This one still has good balance. Still plays good with no ill effects other than it’s sharp.


#16

wow what was that yoyo
it’s look really damage
like a soldier return from the battlefield @_@
ok i’ll try to not worry
