For bimetal (aluminum / steel) yo-yos, I’m curious exactly what percent of the overall yo-yo weight is in the rings?
I saw someone post a pic of a de-ringed Katana and it was cool!
the steel rings on my katana came loose after a bump, so i pried them off with my fingers and took the opportunity to play with the lightest functioning yoyo i’d ever played with
it works surprisingly well and is stable, i just had to be extra gentle with my trick movements
They said the weight of the Katana rings was 31.6g versus 66.3g total, meaning the aluminum cups are 34.7g. So the steel is 48% of the weight on the yo-yo, about half?
Anyone else done this experiment or know the weight of steel rings on other bimetals?
