I’ve just managed to aquire a brand new JP Irony for the equivalent of USD 105 and am keen to keep it pristine by storing it well whilst not in use (partly as it is the most expensive yoyo i have and partly as it is so extremely rare to find and have delivered at a reasonable price to the UK).
I have individual yoyo pouches, zip-lock bags and a yoyo foam case. I am a little ocd about stuff like this and have some of my fave throws sealed in zip lock bags and then slotted into the sections of the yoyo case.
Currently, I’ve got a Northstar, two N12s and a T5 in ziplocks inside the foam case (soon to be joined by the irony) and another t5, n12 and n5 in individual pouches
There’s no risk of the yoyos being bashed up or anything, but what is the best way to store yoyos to keep the bearing and metal from tarnishing/rusting etc?
I suppose that if i use a zip lock bag and there is already some moisture on the yoyo, this wont exactly help! Perhaps i can use some of that desiccant stuff? Is it perfectly fine (or even better?) to keep the yoyos in the foam case without the zip lock bags (this would make it much more likely that i would play with all of them, rather than just one of my t5 and n12s).
