The first ding is the deepest
I put a nice scar on both of my Replays last Monday at work by playing on the back porch over some kind of hard rock tile and when I saw the marks I immediately wanted to buy new ones but almost a week later and I don’t even notice the battle scars. I try to keep everything in mint condition…,
I would resist this impulse! Have some bang-around yo-yos you use all the time so you don’t have to sweat the possible dings! The play’s the thing!
It takes a while to absorb the fact that I will ding and bang my yoyos but outside of actually smashing off a big chunk of a side or something to mess up the balance…I have scars, my yoyos will too. A lack of at least one ding probably means a person doesn’t play or practice enough. @codinghorror Edit add on: I bought my DV888 and 2 MYY Locus with color splashes SPECIFICALLY so dings do not really show!
Ok… here is my list:
Styr Aug .556… 3 extra banana clips
.40 Glock model 23
1 Asp telescoping baton
1 flack jacket
1 Tanto blade short close combat weapon
3 Phosphorus grenades
1 Claymore mine
2 pocket knives
1 box cutter
10 water purification tablets
3 mre meals
1 snake bite kit
Elbow guards, wrist guards, knee guards, a Kevlar helmet
50 feet of half inch braided nylon cord and a grappling hook
Night vision goggles
A digital compass
Apple 4 watch
Car keys, house keys, shop keys, keys to the armored personnel vehicle
A flare gun
1 can of tomato paste
1 Ti Walker and some String Lab Plutonium string
And a bag of gummi bears
But… that’s Only if I am going to Walmart.
If I am going anywhere else; I just take an ID and a 2Sick/Unspoken Decoy yoyo with a Slakie string and a Bryan Figueroa holder.
I like slimline metal responsives for EDC, personally. Current fave definitely the 2018 TimCor Starfire.
This may be shocking to… none of you…
Do you live in a bad neighborhood?
You are the fanciest lad!
Zebra F301 Compact
(usually just one yoyo in the winter, when I’m wearing jeans)
It really bothers me that those glasses are face down
Oh yeah huh
I usually go pretty minimal since I dont like a whole lot of stuff in my pockets, but here is my normal weekday arsenal:
- Card pouch - with credit cards, 2 bandaids and 2 butterfly bandaids, alcohol wipe (need to replace atm), and membership cards
- Cash (varying from 1 to maybe 200 bucks depending) free in pocket without clip
- Pocket knife - usually Kershaw chive or something similar
- Cell phone - atm a Samsing S9+. Nobody lives without their cell phone, and neither do I
- Watch - Casio GW-5000-1JF - Yes, the expensive Japanese made version with the screw back metal case and superior supple plastic.
- Glasses - always on my face cause im blind without them
- Lip balm - Burts Bees. My lips are always dry for some reason
- Yoyo - whichever I care to pick up that day
How do people have the pocket space for all this stuff??? 99% of the time I leave the house with only my phone and wallet. (no yoyo, sorry )
Cargo shorts help.
I keep yoyos at my work desk. This enables me to annoy my team while I think and throw. It also means I don’t carry them around with me.
My EDC consists of a mechanical watch, Tyvek wallet and my key chain. The key chain has a Blockey (no longer made) magnetic key holder and a keyring tube for emergency cash. Last, I sometimes carry my Pokemon Go Gotcha for grinding stardust. Yes, I play a lot of Pokemon Go…
