^^^LOL

But honestly, I never used tape before, if you’re careful, you’ll be able to satin without it, especially if the rims are flat. But anyways, if you are using tape, don’t use a residue kinda tape, such as duct tape. Use the blueish one, or some other thinner, less sticky tape.

I would never, EVER (read; EVER!) satin a yoyo without masking it off first! It takes literally 2 minutes to do it right and will keep you from screwing up.

I use thin tan pinstripe tape to do the fine edge since it can curve to the edge of the yoyo, and then I overlap thick masking tape over that to cover everything else. If I feel like I need an extrat layer I put some duct tape over it to add extra protection.

You could always just mail it to a well known and experienced modder who could probably do it for good prices… They are all over this site…
