Aluminium doesn't corrode. It forms a layer of aluminium oxide on any surfaces exposed to air and so cannot rust. Are you referring to steel? - Wilfred

I have seen alumin(i)um yo-yos that have been lying in a damp garage for several months. They developed a thick white crust. Maybe they were stored next to some corrosive chemicals. Luckily they were not mine. :-) With my own aluminum yo-yos I have indeed never had any problems. --HB 03:19, 6 Feb 2006 (PST)

Hm. Anyway, surely aluminium is harder than plastic, so I wouldn't list is as soft. Its major downer is that is costs more IMO. --Wilfred 10:24, 6 Feb 2006 (PST)

I meant soft as in dents or scratches easily. Bang an aluminium yo-yo on a hard smooth floor, and you will see, that it dents (and sometimes even contorts) quite easily, whereas a celcon/delrin yo-yo will survive with barely a noticeable scratch. --HB 01:22, 7 Feb 2006 (PST)
