I have the same problem. I think it’s worn out, so u have to get a replacement or k-pads.

Alright, thanks. :smiley:


#5

the same always happened to me, also. I hate that! Their not worn out, or broken, but it lost its stickyness. Comes out with a bind. I just put in YYJ silicone o-rings, binds tighter, stays in better. Works great!


(Yo!It'sMatt) #6

Yeah thats what I was wondering, they didn’t look worn out or anything. The YYJ o-ring fit in the 888?


#7

Yep.


#8

So then you could just silicone it? If the recess is deep enough for an o-ring it’s probably deep enough for flowable, yes?


(Yo!It'sMatt) #9

um how do I do that? :stuck_out_tongue:


#10

The recess isn’t very deep. Don’t do that. But if you want, you can buy a tube of flowable silicone, put it in the recess, and let it dry.


(Yo!It'sMatt) #11

Wait, i’m confused on what I shouldn’t do.


#12

He’s saying that you probably shouldn’t flowable silicone it because it isn’t very deep but that if you did it would probably still work.


(Yo!It'sMatt) #13

Oh ok. I think i’m just gunna buy O-rings. :stuck_out_tongue:


#14

Should: Shouldn’t:

YoYoJam silicone o-rings. Put flowable silicone in a yoyo’s
New YYF silicone pads. recess or cavity.
New YYF K-Pads. (Tighter binds)
Any O-Pad. (Silicone)
Born Crucial Ghost Rings. (Amazing!)


Any pad, or o-ring that will fit in a large
bearing yoyo.

Thanks Spencer ;]


#16

Sure thing. That little list took me like 15 min. to make.


(Yo!It'sMatt) #17

If I was to get ghost pads, what size should I get?


#18

Ghost Pads, you mean Ghost Rings? But if pads, probably thick and medium if you want to cover up starburst or a cavity. Thick and large if you just need an all around sticker.


(Yo!It'sMatt) #19

Sorry I mean ghost rings.

O-rings won’t fit in an 888’s recess.
