Not really sure why I keep buying yo-yos


I try to have a limit to how many yoyos I have. Colorways and design can make a yoyo appealing which leads to someone buying it.

Yes. I have 3 different colors of the responsive Replay. I got them all in a week yet I like the overall feel and look of the black one the best. Why? Psychological, I suppose. I put slim pads in them but like the play of the black best. Back on point - knowing a new yo will be coming in a week puts pep in my step and makes me smile. I like trying different shapes and weights and everytime I order one I tell myself I gotta cut myself off for 6 months. If I get one and really love it I feel compelled to order a back up or 2 in different colors.

Right. If we take care of them they can last FOREVER so why buy more? People like getting new things even if we do not need them. Sometimes it’s to fill a void inside and sometimes just for the thrill and fun of it. As long as we’re being financially responsible and not ignoring other things like saving money…eh, go for it. If I went out drinking every week I’d spend more each month than a new yoyo costs. That yoyo will be around in 10 years but memories of what I drank will be long forgotten and yoyos do not lead to poor decision making.


I’m curious how many duplicates of the same yoyo model people have. Sometimes you find a yoyo you like so much, you start collecting it in different colorways. For instance, I’m debating with myself over whether or not to get a VTWO in a third color (before they are sold out).


Well, I have 7 or 8 YYJ hitman yoyos, 4 YYJ journeys, 3 YYJ DMIIs, quite a few TK no-jives and BC loopers of various colors, 3 or 4 Duncan FHZs. 4 or 5 Yomega Raiders, 3 Spintastics Eclipses. At one time I had 2 Hspin G&E 4 Black Lilys. Sometimes I just can’t help m’self :wink:
and probably a few others.
p.s. Many of these have a slightly different setup than the others in the same group.


The only duplicates I have are 3 replay pros, two loop 720s, and two loop 1080s(which I’m looking to sell).
