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!

I like slimline metal responsives for EDC, personally. Current fave definitely the 2018 TimCor Starfire.

This may be shocking to… none of you…

Oh yeah huh :joy:

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 :sleepy:)

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…
