I just broke my konkave ceramic bearing. It was in my shutter, that I have had for less than a month.
I’ve had problems with this yoyo since the beginning removing the bearing. When I got the yoyo, it played fine for an hour or so, then became very responsive. Like won’t sleep responsive. Looping responsive. More responsive than my mag 5 star.
I took the bearing out to clean it. It was tough to get out. Tried my yoyo tool, tried 1/4" bit, then froze it and was able to get it off with pliers (padded with a tshirt).
Cleaned the bearing, put it back in the yoyo. Life was good for a bit (week or so), then the yoyo became very responsive again. went through the same ordeal trying to get the bearing off, but after initial problem trying to remove it with the tool, froze it and was able to remove the bearing with the tool.
Figuring the yoyo was breaking in, I put in my konkave. Well, it became unresponsive again earlier. Went through the same ordeal, except the konkave outer shell literally snapped in half.
the inside of the bearing is still fused to the yoyo. It’s not coming off.
I’m just getting back into yo-yoing, and am still learning. What happened here? Did I do things improperly, or was it the yoyo?
