Metal Rimmed plastics


#1

Ok so on my topic Dark Magic 3 we were trying to find a name for metal plastics by yoyojam. Post your opinions here.


#2

Mma short for multiple material


#3

Just stick with bi-metals, sure this isn’t what this term is meant for, but it fits pretty well.


#4

Bi-metal is a term for a yoyo made of different metals, such as YYJ Phenom and sOMEThING Anglam.


#5

would Hybrid work?


#6

With some clarification, yes, it would work.


#7

no that is used for a yoyo with hybrid response. Like when it has both sticker and starburst.


#8

I know, and that’s why I said it doesn’t fit yoyos like the Dark Magic.


#9

Actually people have been calling them YYJ BiMetals for a while now. Even if the name doesn’t make sense I’m more willing to calling it what I have heard it called for years…


#10

See how all these names aren’t right. Let’s make our own.


#11

Maybe Andre Knows. I’ll PM him.


#12

I’ll call them bi metals. Everyone knows what I am talking about.


#13

Yoyojam Alustic? Aluminum + Plastic.

Plus it The word lust in it so thats cool too


(DOGS) #14

I’ve always called them bimaterials to clarify that bimetal hooliganry.


(M.DeV1) #15

I’m on the Bimetals boat here.


#16

Bimaterial makes the most sense.


#17

Bimaterial def makes the most sense. Bimetal means alloy/steel,Copper/brass, ect.


#18

I use metal/plastic or plastic/metal, depending on what I felt like typing first.

Bi-Metal means 2 kinds of metal are used. However, I’m forgiving of that term and can tolerate it being used to describe a plastic and metal yoyo. I myself try to not use that term unless I’m talking about a yoyo using two kinds of metal.


#19

Andre said that metal rimmed plastics are called hybrids and that gets mixed up with hybrid response but since hybrid response isn’t used anymore they are called HYBRIDS


#20

People have called them bimetals for as long as I’ve been yoyoing, don’t see that changing. Everyone knows what someone’s talking about if they say bi-metal, so don’t really see a problem with it. Is it technically right? No, but does it matter?

Similarly, calling things yoyo tricks doesn’t make a lot of sense either, seeing as how a trick is some sort of deceitful act (trick: An act or procedure intended to achieve an end by deceptive or fraudulent means)
There’s nothing deceptive or fraudulent about a double or nothing.

on the note of hybrids, it’s true hybrid response isn’t really used anymore, but yoyos with it still exist.
