Does anyone have a yoyo that is long gone but still holds a special place in your heart? A yoyo that you wish you hadn’t traded/sold but needed to for financial reasons?
I do. There are probably a half a dozen that I wish I had never gotten rid of but the top of the list for me is my 1 of a kind, painted by Brett Grimes, DragonSlayer Peak.
It was DragonSlayer before Dragonslayer was Dragonslayer. It was painted to look like dragon scales. It was painted with green scales with a yellow underbelly. It was soooooo amazing. Underneath was just an ugly fools gold grizzly bear clown town peak, but I commissioned Mr. Grimes to paint it for me. I gave him free reign to do whatever he wanted. I just gave him a list of themes I wanted. He succeeded. I had planned on keeping it forever, but life happened. I sold it 2-3 years ago, but I always have regretted it, and have thought about it every now and then. I have always wondered what happened to it.
I would commission Brett to do another, but he has pretty much retired from the yoyo scene and painting yoyos, as I understand it. Sigh
What’s your story?
