Man I wish I tried to freeze my foam before, but oh wells. Well recently I made my own yoyo case since I’ve wanted to make one for over 10 years but never really got to do so since I stopped throwing for a long while. I made one since I was doing a show/workshop teaching kids how to yoyo doing basic stuff and wanted to have something somewhat presentable…presentable enough as well as to carry.
So I went out and bought an old laptop case at a goodwill ($6, brought a couple of throws with me to make sure it has enough height clearance), used some old high compression foam I bought many years ago when I needed to transport expensive tech stuff in my old job when I traveled. I believe I bought the foam at a Joan’s fabric store (although it only came in light green), sheet of 3’x5’ for $15-20, I still have a 3x3 sheet left so enough to make a couple more cases. I was wanting to use a can but I was in a hurry and it was 4am in the morning and this only took me an hour to make (shows in the cleanliness of my work, lol). I used a Duncan Mosquito as my template size since the foam should compensate for slightly larger throws without much effort, found an ocean spray gallon bottle plastic cap of the same size, scored the foam for me to cut along using a long box cutter (remember, 4am…I didn’t really care if it looked clean, it just had to work, I’ll make a cleaner version in the future using a can or drill bit of the appropriate size)
When finished it can hold 21-30(if double stacked with 2A throws). The laptop bag also has all sorts of pockets for me to hold string, tune up stuff, gloves, etc. So it was nice and convenient, here’s a pic and don’t mind the crude craftsmanship.
Also sorry for the long post.
