I haven’t gotten over it fully.
I mean, a few of my prized throws have gotten scratched or dinged, and it’s ultimately not a big deal. I’m bummed for a minute, then I’m back to not caring. Because, honestly, the throws I care about most are ones that I’m likely to never part with, so I’m not worried about their value for selling or trading, as long as they still play well.
That being said, I take good care of everything I own, so I don’t like damaging anything if I can avoid it. If I spend money on something, I want it to last, and stay in good condition, so I’m careful with all of my possessions, throws included.
That leads to me taking precautions to prevent damage to the throws I care most about. Which means I play over carpet whenever I can, and if I know I won’t have carpet to throw over, I use one of my less-prized throws. Even then, I’m careful with them. Playing purely 1A at this point, it’s easy for me to avoid hitting the ground in most circumstances, I would just rather use one of my cheaper throws (that I still enjoy playing thoroughly), rather than risk one of my favorites. Which means I’ll usually use something replaceable, like my Shutter, Shaqlerstar, Horizon, or Cypher, rather than risk something semi-irreplaceable like my 5/7 Space Cowboy, SPYY Addiction, or Markmont. Next.
Overall, dings aren’t the end of the world, and I don’t lose sleep over them when they happen, but I try my best to avoid any damage to the throws I care about most.
