How To Cover Up Scratches On DV888

Hi guys,

I’m new to the world of yoyos. I stumbled across a yoyo shop in Singapore last year called Spin Workx and had a throw of the DV888 and really enjoyed it!
Anyway I have managed to find a grey DV888 which I’ve been after for a while but it has a few scratches on it.
Can anyone recommend a way of touching up the paint or blending the scratches into the grey paint so that they are not as obvious?
Hope you can help.

Thank you.

Really nothing you can do. If you hit it with sandpaper or a file you’ll likely just take off some of the ano.
Scratches and dings give your yoyo character, I wouldn’t stress over it.

Oh hey man! Thanks for replying, that’s a shame I can’t do much about. But oh well.

Here’s my work throw - ain’t she pretty? Lol

And that’s just the good side lo

Btw welcome to the forums. Scratches are battle scars…

Thanks man! Yeah that seems to be the consensus haha.

If you do want to maximize looks, get a silver anodized yo-yo, because that’ll “blend” best with any scrapes or knocks.

The answer to all life’s problems is… more yo-yos!

Garbage cans hide DV888’s pretty well.

If you can find a magic marker close to the color, that will hide them a bit. The closer the match the better the hide.

But it’s really not necessary to do anything at all.

Dings happen, life happens. Besides you can’t see a single ding when it spins :smiley:
