I need your dead yoyos and strings.
Condition does not matter.
Color does not matter.
Any color / style string over 30 inches in any condition.
Any color, style, shape, quality, condition yo-yo halves ( I don’t need bearings or axles).
I need them for the next two art related YoYoExperiments.
If you are willing to help me them to the address below.

Thank you,

Your humble The YoYoSkills Manservant

    What do you need them for?

    Man would you hate to pick up one of my yoyo’s.

    Er… I mean… Hi my name’s Jonah and I have a problem, I’m a necro-string-o-pheliac, I play them till they’re dead and then I play them some more, I don’t change them till they get dirty or until I can’t tell the difference between the 2 strands it’s made of.

    But in all honesty, it saves me money (don’t know if that’s an issue with you but it is me), I got my last bundle of 100 during the middle of school, and I think I’m down to 50 strings.

    Yeah, but that’s like…15 minutes of use on those strings. They’re just getting broken in.

    @J_scap and phark – My name is Chris, and I have a problem. I don’t like using Yo-Yo String once it stretches out, gets dirty, or loses it’s tension.

    I have at least 1k dead strings all sitting in a basket of varying colors and material. I’ll send you an email if I decide I can bear to part with my super colorful wastebasket!

    I agree with Elephark, they do look quite fresh. I’ll ransack my room to see if I’ve got any, only that I can think of is my dead speed maker but I use that to shave my o-rings

    no, those are dead. It is just a clean photo

    I like how behind the words “DEAD STRING” is a jar of fresh, new string.
