While discussing an ill-fated Hitman Pro, I came to the realization that I can hardly recall more than a single occasion where I’ve ever actually thrown out a yoyo. In the years and years that I have been participating in yoyoing, I would have thought that this would have arisen more. I tend to keep broken yoyos with no worth around for no reason, or have on few occasions traded them away as parts for modding.
Am I an oddity in this case? How often do any of you find yourselves throwing yoyos into the bin? Have you thrown away any metals, or kept them around/tried to trade them? Have you given something away solely for the prospect of getting rid of it? Is this becoming more or less common because of manufacturing, or mentality over time?
