Hey all! So I got to thinking about yo-yos and the weight rings of choice. Most of the yo-yos I’ve seen with weight rings use Titanium (This is excluding plastic throws.), and a few use steel.
Why don’t they all use steel? Why not just take the titanium and shave it down slightly to get they same weight added to the rims? It seems to me like it would feel identical, but be much easier and cheeper to manufacture. Does anyone have any knowledge on whether or not it would actually feel exactly the same? Or other related thoughts?
