Aaaah, thanks for the info.
On the MAO tangent, I found this interesting: What is Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation?
Yep the wait is finally over for me lol. That white with black is absolutely fire and I enjoy the Top Deck, so I’ll be trying to cop one. It gives me that “ I wanna be formal, but I’m here to party too” vibe
Did everyone order their Top Decks today?
I like the top deck but I actually don’t think I would want it cerakote
What is it about the Top Deck that makes it less desirable for cerakote?
I haven’t figured out why Cerakote is desirable on any yoyo. It looks like it’s less durable than a standard anodized finish.
Depends on the context.
Because Ceracote is applied with Air, Air Brush, they may have a likelihood of chipping.
But there are a lot of benefits to the coating, beyond what Anodizing offers, aside from the one flaw.
These are still anodized under the coating. So best of both worlds?
You have to appreciate the patina and the feel. I have a cerakote Deep State and Weekender and they are both the best of their breed in my opinion.
I don’t mind patina, as in metal oxidation, but I’m not a fan of a distressed finish.
That’s a yo-yo that I 100% will ding and so on he more expensive finish would keep it over carpet or on a shelf. I may not intend to do that but it would be my impulse if I owned one. Kind of like how I never throw my rbc even though I love it cause they are hard to get ahold of but I play and beat the hell out of my Origen. I don’t like owning a yo-yo I’m not comfortable playing with
I am the complete opposite. Throw the Cer.Weekender anywhere. The Anodized one sits on the shelf and is played over carpet.
I got mine from Howard and he had it as a shelf queen. It still had that initial gritty feel. I told him I was going to wear it out. When Doc told me there are roughly nine in existence. I flip flopped for a minute but I’m back putting it to work.
I picked up the white/black
Same here. I kept checking throughout the day to see how the sales went and white/black finally sold out around 5 or 6pm PDT. No idea when the orange one sold out, but the yellow/black is still in stock.
I did and it was difficult deciding which one. I went with yellow/black since I thought it would look good if the Cerakote got damaged in places and black was peaking through.
