    And taking up yoyos instead. I can play with them every where. Walk the dog etc. Also not spend $400 dollars on Reps and Homs. The Bali market is too monopolized atm. I had hopes with cold steel and they gave us a toy that's worse then a yoyo and y'all still supported it.

    or get into juggling

    flyingclipper.com for TC pros
    or
    gballz.com E8 pros

    very non-threatening, once you find a size and weight you like there is no need to buy more unless adding #’s to your routine.

    I've actually tried yo-yo'ing...pretty fun but I find it annoying when the string twists and messes me up. So I moved on to other things...

    - Rubik's cube (PB = 24 seconds...F2L method)
    - Gundam model building (serious, try it...pretty fun)
    - Skateboarding (never got out of it but doing it more often)
    - Mortal Kombat league (Baraka and Nightwolf)
    - Making my own beef jerky (5 lbs of beef to make 1 lbs of beef jerky...I need to rethink this)

    ***I've only bought 1 (maybe 2) balisong this entire year

    - Back in the 80s I had a nice collection of Rubik's cubes and similar puzzles. Never solved one.
    - Building Star Wars and Blade Runner replica props. Any day that includes some of that is a great day!
    - Martial Arts. Just about everyday since 1982.
    - World of Warcraft. Best thing since Ever Quest! F@#K EQ2
    - If you make any more beef jerky, I want some!

    ***How many Bali have you sold? Zero? Yup, you're a bali hoarder! LOL

    With the Homs,at least you get what you pay for. Beats paying the same or more for discontinued production knives that aren't half as nice. But I can understand, they're still pretty steep.

    But understandable - my other big hobby is guns, and I've gotten to the point where new acquisitions lose their excitement pretty quickly.

    To each their own.

    I’d take a bone stock BRS AB or Replicant minus latch any day over any other bali. With BRS at least you get what you pay for.

    *cost, flipping, quality

    I used to yoyo at competitions and stuff and the yoyo bst on facebook is a great community that can help you really get the ball rolling if you'd like!
