OK, there’s been a cold snap where I live. Last week it was like low 50’s to high 40’s for the lows. This week, it’s below freezing. Where I live, this is VERY unusual. I for for some of you, the low temps are not such a big deal. Excuse my whining.
Anyhow, I’ve mostly stopped throwing outside, especially in the morning. But, I’ve noticed that plastic yoyos seem to warm up faster than metal yoyos. This is not scientific or even measured, it’s just observational. Metal seems to hit my cold fingers and hand harder. Plastic doesn’t feel quite the same way.
On the morning walk, it’s plastic, most since I’m using loopers. In the afternoon, metals are more tolerated.
When it’s cold for you and you’re slowing outside, do you have a preference for metal or plastic?
Gloves aren’t an option. I don’t have any gloves thin enough to maintain feeling in my fingers for the yoyo, but the warmth does mean my fingers to maintain feeling from not being cold.
