So im a very sentimental person, so a lot of these have sentimental value to me. Like I said, I hold on to everything, so the ones that have that sentimental value are the ones that I’m really going to make sure I have regardless of anything. Lots of pictures incoming. Before the pics, some throws that I think fit this category that i didnt snap were my supernova, mutant dna, punchline, pure, wooly marmot, edge, doorknob, ti vayder. Im probably missing a few, but those are the big ones off the top of my head.
so pretty much everything in this case is specispecial to me. I am the biggest fan of general yo, and enjoy their throws a lot. The painted one is an entheos, which is special because its my only painted yoyo. Also second run 5 star was one of the first throws I’ve ever wanted from when I started yoyoing so thats big to me. On the right side of the case are some really special throws to me. Top left is a bassalope, my first premium metal yoyo ever. 12 year old me stripped it multiple times, so @yoyospirit
modded it for me so that its playable again (and can go large or small bearing if I find large bearing SPRs)
Middle is my tester code 1. When the community created the code 1, a handful of people were selected to be testers and received prototypes with your username engraved, and I was fortunate enough to be selected. I remember I almost missed the chance to be selected because I was away on vacation with no internet access, and came back the very last day I would be allowed to accept to be a tester.
Last one in that case is a john higby 07 888. My dad bought it for me at the first contest I ever went to, and it has some of the coolest engravings ever, and 2 of my favorite colors. It is one of my favorite yoyos to play even 13 years after it’s inception.
Some others that are really special to me:
My first metal yoyo ever, still play it from time to time, still has very minimal vibe considering how much of a beating this thing took. I remember washing everyone’s car to get it
this was given to me as a gift from Bradd over at circle city yoyos, and it happened to be my first world yoyo contest ever to boot. Its a great yoyo and a great colorway and something to help remind me about my world yoyo contest experience.
All the yoyos my girlfriend has gotten me. She works really hard and the fact that she would spend all this hard earnes money on me blows my mind. I’ve gotten gifts from my parents and brother too, and I’ll include them as well, mainly edge and edge monster and shutter WA, which arent pictured
And lastly these 2. The aurora was my first titanium yoyo. I remember the drop on the prominent yoyo store at the time was delayed for hours (can’t remember if they forgot or a system malfunction or whatever) and me refreshing like mad on a car ride to a vacation for that entire time waiting for it to drop. Obviously when we get there and I’m unpacking everything is when the yoyo was dropped and it was gone realy quick. I actually wanted the green one at first but i missed the drop. A couple days later they had a couple of them on another yoyo store just in this clear color and I snagged one and was super happy. It has the coolest titanium ring out of every titanium I’ve ever heard.
The other yoyo in the picture is a yyf boss (the original one) i bought a yoyoexpert edition one (red and black splash) and stripped it because the bearing seat was so tight I couldn’t get the bearing out. Contacted YYF waaaaay later than I should have (as in, 1 or 2 years after the fact) they tried to fix it but couldn’t, and sent me one with a ding or 2 no questions asked. I thought this was very very nice and something that I’ll always remember.
