I got my skyva in the other day and throwing it I noticed that the bearing acted like it was lubed. You know, tug and the string wants to try and wrap. So much so that a good enough tug and it will respond. Was making it impossible for me to try and learn finger spins.
Today, I decided to throw in a OD 10 Ball (my fav’s). Take the throw apart… they put it together tight. No bearing removal tool so grab the trusty, rusty pliers. That was a no-go. Tried wiggling and all that but the bearing is not budging. Screw it, just put the thing back together before you break it. I did not want to over tighten so I threw it … BAM, vibe outta hell. Dang!!! Well, started tugging and the bearing was now totally un-responsive. No trying to wrap string or anything. Hmmmm… lets tighten it up a little more. Less vibe… YAY!!! Tighen a litte more… just a smidgen of very barely noticeable vibe. GREAT! Tug, tug… bearing still un-responsive. Oh yea… that is what I wanted!
So, there is my Skyva Bearing story with a happy ending… for now. I will eventually have to get that bearing loose and out. ;D
