Just wondering how some of you behave when you buy a yoyo.
For me, I am going forward with the understanding that certain parts wear and need to be replaced. So, these days, I’m making sure when I buy a new yoyo, I ensure I have purchased appropriate response system replacements(as applicable), at least one spare axle and at least one spare bearing, UNLESS I already have those items in my inventory. I figure if something might go wrong, I want to be covered in the unlikely event something does go wrong.
String, I have plenty of so I’m not stocking up on that for a while.
I also find sticking with one or two brands lets me not have to buy as much variety in replacement parts.
Axles are so cheap, as well as response pads/rings, it’s almost a no-brainer. Bearings, well, that can be a different issue.
I don’t want to go silicone my own yoyos at this point in time. Seems a waste of my time and money unless I’m going to go do a bunch of them at once.
Or are the rest of you so well stocked up that all you really need is the yoyo?
