My yo yo is kinda dinged up


#1

My yo-yo(x-convict) has a bunch of scratches on the metal part will it affect it’s performance? If it does is there any way to fix it?


#2

It shouldn’t affect the play at all.


#3

sometimes it will cause the bearing to break in which makes a loud noise but it won’t affect play… :wink:

For the most part dings and scratches will not affect the performance of the yo-yo. After a long time and many dings the yo-yo may lose it’s balance and start to wobble slightly but all-in-all you have a good yo-yo to work with. The dings will just give it some character. :slight_smile:

This is not true. Playing the yoyo will cause the bearing to break in. Not dings and scratches.

The bearing breaking in is good thing.


#6

Maybe he meant “causes the bearing to break, in which [case will] make a loud noise”

:slight_smile:


(LookAYoYo) #7

no if the bearing broke, than it would effect play


#8

Might effect grinds.

Thats what my mom said when i dinged up my DM really bad but it still plays fine!


#10

If the scratch is light then you might be able to satin it off. ( sand paper) but don’t do it right away! ask people in the modification section to get some details


#11

I mean that outer metal part not the bearing because my yoyo has fallen before and has scratches ???


#12

Depends how hard you hit it. My gm I dented badly, and it slightly affected the play, but hardly at all.


#13

Dings arw a good thing, IMO. Just play, it won’t affect the play to the point that it is unplayable
