is there any possible way to fix this. I was playing outside and It hit the ground full force after It fell of fthe string. It’s so deep it affects the play
Yeah, that’s a bad ding, but there really isn’t a way to fix it (at least to my knowledge) unless you sand the rims down equally on each side to even the weight out.
This is the only thing I can think to do as well. It would play slightly differently though, since you’re completely changing the weight and weight distribution.
The question you should ask yourself is: Would you rather play it with a ding or sand it down and enjoy it like that?
Since it already affects the play according to mgold123, I personally would try and sand it down. Rather have it a little different than some metal shards smacking against your hand when you bind a non-balanced yoyo. Who knows, maybe it’ll play better towards his preferences.
It’s all up to mgold though. Hope this helps you out bud.
Does it really affect the play, or just your impression of it due to your disappointment? If it were me I’d take a bit of 200-300 grit sandpaper, remove the sharp edges around the ding and play on.
You can get it powdercoated too if you’re concerned with the look.
I was throwing my Gnarwhal in my living room, not really thinking about obstacles. Popped it up too high and the ceiling fan launched it. Poor thing got a massive ding in it.
I too have dinged my shutter pretty badly trying behind the back eli hops. I just sanded it down ans it plays just fine for me. I don’t really see any difference in play with mine. but best of luck to you. Hope it gets all sorted out.
Every time that happens to me I scrape it on the concrete to remove the burr, then play on. If I am at home I use a file, sometimes if it is my Mg I use the backside of my knife to brake off the sharp bit. One of the best things about a Mg throw for 5A is it is brittle, and fairly easy to brake off the sharp bits, unlike aluminum, where it wants to fold down, and not cleanly brake off.
I would sand down like jhb said. If it really affects play, make it your beater and it will eventually return to being smooth.
I just use a metal nail filer. It all works out. Trust me my shutter is pretty banged up. worse than yours.
