question about YYJ Dark Magic National Master edition


#1

So I just got my new yoyo today and I was really excited. First thing I did on my new dark magic yoyo was thumb grind and as soon as I got the yoyo back up I had realized that the black paint stripped from the yoyo onto my fingernail. Is this supposed to happen? ???


#2

no its not but ahh look on the brit side wellahh yahh they riped you off man ps thats my opinion lol


#3

Actually, thats wrong. The metal was anodized, so naturally, when thumb grinding, the anodization came off.

yeah as much as it sucks samad is right.

A finger nail is actually quite a tough surface and when it grinds against an anodized yo-yo can cause the anodization to slowly ‘grind’ off. Thumb grinding on anodization isn’t recommended since over time you can completely remove it - however it doesn’t just come off after a few times. You would notice the amount of anodization left on your finger gets smaller and smaller over time - the anodization may slowly disappear underneath the rim if you continue to thumb grind. Anytime you are grinding something against a surface this happens - same thing with the underside of a skateboard against concrete.

That’s weird, I have been thumb grinding my yo-yo a few times and it’s as good as new.
