I need to take off my wedding ring when I'm throwing


#1

I have a tungsten wedding ring and I always forget to take it off. It wasn’t a problem when I was terrible and went really slow, but now I’m just not very good and I go a little faster. I’ve now taken bits of anno off at least three >$100 yoyos. The latest being my Code 2 earlier today.
Does anyone else have this problem?


#2

The “ting” of metal against my wedding ring is a daily occurrence. Haven’t had to worry about taking off ano yet, but I’m sure it’ll happen sooner or later.

I always consider taking off my ring, but then… one day I’ll lose it. I’m just too forgetful. And even though my wedding ring only cost $400 or so, it’s far more valuable to me than some yoyos.

I used to wear rings on each hand but when I started yoyoing I only had rings on my non-throw hand so I never had the problem. My friend did let a guy borrow his yoyo and he had on a ring and immediatly dinged the yoyo. Not marked it but dinged it, anno broke and everything. He was not a happy camper, hehe.

It is on my non throw hand. Stinkin’ cold fusion gets me sometimes.

Tungsten wedding ring has damaged its share of my albatross and nessies

i also have a tungstun ring - you sort of just learn how to throw w/o dingin’ your yo yos against it. most of the time, anyway.

however, i really don’t care ‘bout dingin’ my yo yos - but that’s just me. perhaps consider yo yoin’ w/ a glove if it’s that much of a problem.

Ring on or off? That is the question. The reality: me possilby damaging a yoyo or my wife possibly damaging me? Hmm…ring on, ringing that yo like a bell! :wink: Besides, she likes me, she’ll buy me more ;D .

If I’m just walking around throwing at work, or hanging out i leave it own. If I’m dedicating time to film a tutorial or working on some new tricks at home I will take it off.

My friends dad dented his kids (my friend) mint Hatrick while throwing with a wedding ring.


#10

I usually take it off and just keep it in my pocket … I have a titanium ring n I have hit a few of my yoyos with it but no damage… Yet.

One time my wife did notice me taking it off … I jus told her I didn’t want to damage the ring ;D


#11

Haven’t had that problem. Lost the ring a long, long time ago - much to my wife’s dismay. :wink:


#12

I like my hands feeling “natural” and I do quite a bit of manual work with my hands - so I don’t always wear my ring anyway.


#13

My wife and I agreed not to even bother with wedding rings, and yo-yoing was the main reason for that decision. We got tattoos on our ring fingers instead.


#14

Titanium ring here. Only comes off at home if throwing ones I want to keep mint. Mostly my primo, because was first Father’s Day gift.


#15

My dad lost his in the Backyard…

My mom had to have hers removed once… It’s back on though. :wink:


#16

That’s awesome !! Pix?


#17

How did you pull that off? You have “YoYo Life” on your knuckles, do you not*? Underside, second knuckle?

*Which is awesome, by the way, when I finally get around to getting mine done they’ll say “Play Yoyo”


#18

I leave mine on. I took it off a couple times, but I don’t really mind the small marks it leaves now and then. I don’t think think it’s ever broken the anno, though. If you’re worried about it, I guess you could put a bandaid or piece of tape on it.


#19

We have dots tattooed on the sides of our ring fingers. It doesn’t interfere with my knuckle tattoos at all.


#20

meh… I just get a ‘dink’ or a ‘chink’ sound when I throw/catch… I like it. It was annoying at first… but you get used to it for sure.
