i own about 10 hi ends, all dinged ( the last two being a HOT and an anglamcc)
i got over how it made me feel bad each time my throws got dinged , he’re the idea:
(read if you care about dings on your throws at all, skip this discussion if you’re already over dinging your throw)
picture your yoyo in it’s former state, the raw state, it’s silver, just raw metal, that’s the colors of dings,
when you think about it that way, dings don’t even affect performance nor the color of your throw (when it spins the color blends with the dings making them invisible) !
each dings get your yoyo closer to it’s original form. you’re not losing any perfection along the way, just making your yoyo grow with you. yes…like pokemon…or digimon, whatever helps you sleep at night.
dings don’t make your throw any less perfect since they’re only getting it closer to its former state, a raw shaped metal material. if you think about it color is pretty accessory and doesn’t really matter, you’re not buying a color when you purchase a yoyo, but you’re buying the awesome performance the throw has to offer. AND THAT PERFORMANCE DOESN’T DEGRADE WITH DINGS!
still not convinced? take your newly dinged throw you’re depressed about, make it spin…don’t bind just yet, just look at it: how is it any different from it’s glory state in witch you received it? if you think about it like that,dings become so unimportant you’ll wonder why you were ruining your spin times worrying about them. now go throw at school or something!
heck, i just dinged my HOT on my metal belt twice in the same day…lol
helped me out, hope some others are relieved, if not i hope you did get a good laugh (cause i’m pretty sure i sounded like a complete retard to those already over with worrying about dings.) XD
