I was inspired by one of Brett Grime’s yoyo cases a long while back, and I just picked up one of these bad boys at a great discount to make a new case for myself.
I originally intended to pick up some white foam from Joann’s and dye it black, but than I began to have some second thoughts. If I did the foam properly, I figure I could fit 16 yoyos per drawer which makes for 48 yoyos in the drawers alone, not counting how many I could fit in the massive top compartment along with accessories. This is more than enough space for me, and if I ever manage to run out of room I don’t think I’ll need a bigger case—I’ll just need less yoyos. lol. For my previous case I made the mistake of cutting all the holes beforehand, then I ended up buying a handful of undersized throws which didn’t fit “properly” into the case. The case still served its purpose well but I’m pretty OCD and it irks me constantly. So if I did go with the foam, I’d take the path of cutting a new hole for each new throw I got.
Anyway. Now I’m considering ditching the foam altogether to save a few bucks and avoid the hassle of dying and continuously cutting. I’m thinking about just buying a roll of this good ole shelf grip and lining the drawers with it. It should work well enough to stop the yoyos from sliding around upon opening and closing the drawers, which is my main concern. This would also allow me to fit even MORE yoyos in the case…
What do you guys think? Foam or grip? Also, any other suggestions that you think would be neat for my new case?
