What did you get in the mail this week?

Grab a dark purple Sharpie and get to it, buddy! It still looks mega cool!!!


#3651

Yeah it looks pretty good, and I have 2 other saturday market yo-yos that look more typical, so I’m not really complaining. There is natural variance in splashes!


(ClockMonsterLA) #3652

That’s the risk with splashes, right? You pays your money and you takes your chances. :man_shrugging:

I took a stab at the Charm’s Fire Island splash and it didn’t look nearly as crisp or vivid as the photos. I figure disappointment is just as likely as satisfaction, from a probability standpoint, when it comes to totally random color patterns.


#3653

Depending on the manufacturer, they’ll pull particularly “weird” splash outcomes as b-grades or trash them entirely. Depends on the quality control they have in place, and what they’re comfortable with etc.


(Duncan Ely) #3654

I kinda like the way yours came out, but I would definitely be disappointed expecting one with more blues and purple.


#3655

May I ask how much that cost?


#3656

Which one are you quoting? Pads, strings or something else?


#3657

Thank you and a big bear hug to @codinghorror for this beauty! Plays like a dream!


#3659

Yeah it plays like a slightly smaller Edge Beyond, a bit more W shaped, enjoy :wink:

I just got my package from @codinghorror from the contest last weekish. As I stated earlier…I am saving this until Christmas morning since all my family lives far away and we just do cards and stuff. I hope I don’t sleepwalk one night before Christmas and rip it open and then wake up in the morning and wonder where the new yoyo came from and start to think my yoyos got together and made a yoyo baby. I think @codinghorror has magic seeds and grows yoyos in his basement, or attic, or garage. If he actually is able to do this wouldn’t they all be…organic? Hahahaha…(sigh). Thank you for the votes, my yo peeps!

Not if he used pesticides and/or inorganic fertilizers.


#3662

I use thin lube. THIN LUBE EVERYWHERE


({John15}) #3663

:sweat_smile: I bet you do!


(ChrisFrancz) #3664

Huh…food for thought. Food for thought.


(ChrisFrancz) #3665

Aw, come on!

(Justin Thompson) #3667

Thanks man, this throw is really nice. And the half swap colorwat, too cool for school.


(Justin Thompson) #3669

Thanks bro, I wouldn’t have it except for @codinghorror and his very gracious ways. #Colorwat

@sfyoyos were extremely generous and surprised me with this beautiful Bliss CS! It plays so insanely good, such an amazing, premium yoyo. I’m really loving it so far!
