Started off meaning a sore one. ie in a fight you could take a sore punch. (yin = one)
But now its turned completely around and it means something is very good.
Some people still use it to describe a sore knock on the head.
oohh he took a dull yin there. (old meaning)
you seen jimmy's new car? aye its a dull yin eh? (new meaning)
