Alright guys, so I go to a lot of shows at bars and do lots of things at night and in dark places in general so I decided it was time for a GITD yoyo. I needed one that was going to play well and that was also going to be just plain awesome.
Well…that’s a good place to start!
First off, let’s get those caps off.
Good now what?
F all that noise…It’s silicone time!
Mmmmmmdone! (Little known fact: if you stare at an FHZ just the right way, the pads will actually fly off and silicone grooves will appear - kinda like parting the red sea :p)
Coat number one going on!
And skip to after three coats:
Those last two are more representative of what it actually looks like in the dark.
And here’s one in daylight:
The GITD paint is luckily quite light and only adds about 1g to the yoyo even after three coats! It’s 65.9g instead of the usual slightly below 65g of an FHZ that’s been siliconed.
It plays great and looks absolutely amazing in the dark! Wish I could video it…but all I’ve got is this point and shoot and it doesn’t like GITD video footage…
And for anyone that wants to do this themselves…Glow Inc!
Seriously an awesome place for glow powder/paint. I used V10 Water Based Glow Paint as it glows the brightest and longest, but there are other colors too if you’re interested.
So many possibilities!!!
