Hey guys, how’s it going?
I just wanted to make a thread where I let the collector in me run wild. I know I probably single-handedly annoyed most of the collectors on the forum with my “Consistency is Key” thread, so I figured it was only right for me to make one where we can get together and appreciate the non-throwing aspects of yoyoing. Many of which I love!
For me, I love undercut yoyos. A quick preface, up until a little over a year ago, I only cared about competition yoyos. I thought any other yoyos were lesser, because they did not perform as well.
Yeah, pretty stupid, I know.
BUT, then I tried my first undercut yo-yo. It wasn’t very good for competition. By my old logic, it should have been a bad yoyo. Buy for some reason, I LOVED it. Like a lot. And that got me thinking, maybe competition performance isn’t everything. From then on, I worked on collecting undercut yoyos. And it’s been super fun!
Here is my undercut collection. It’s not big, but I love it. And yes, sometimes, I just like to display them and enjoy them without throwing them.
I love their aesthetics and craftsmanship.
So here they are!
First is a CLYW Cliff I traded for. I got it powder coated, and love the way it looks! So much fun.
Next is a Hearse. This is such a fun YoYo. I love it’s angular shape.
This is a custom anodized Avant Garde 2. Grunt bull messed up the first color, so be made it up to me by redoing it in this premium galaxy I could never afford. Sometimes I just sit and stare at it for 5 minutes…
And finishing it off, this is a SoSerious Chronos. I love this one so much. It’s like an organic, and it feels so nice and comfy in my hand. But it still has awesome power.
So now it’s your turn! What are your finest crafted yoyos? Which ones do you collect, and love to just sit and look at, whether you throw them much or not?
I’d love to see. Let’s see those vintage organics with wonderful craftsmanship!
