I don’t know, I’ve heard such great things about that yo-yo. If you get it, and love how it plays, you’ll want to keep it. Even it it has some vibe, you’ll probably forget about it and just enjoy the yo-yo.
I have the Rook, and bought the Castle. The Castle is an amazing player! However, it was so much like the Rook, I decided I couldn’t justify keeping both. I ended up deciding I like the Rook better, even though it has a little bit of vibe!
I think part of it was that, I knew I could get my money out of the Castle, whereas I’d have to take a bit of a hit on the Rook (The rook also has some wear.), but really the vibe ultimately didn’t seem important for the actual play of the yo-yo.
The frustrating thing about the Rook was that I think it was smooth when I got it. I remember getting a couple of axle knots, going to undo the yo-yo, and the yo-yo was screwed so tight together that I’d end up just digging the knot out instead! Finally the bearing needed some attention, I took it apart for that, and that’s when it started vibing.
After I thought about it, I decided maybe I should screw it together tighter than I usually would. I did, and that really helps. It just about gets rid of the vibe. I figured it being Ti, it can withstand quite a bit of torque.
The axle is so short on the 000, that I’m not sure about treating it that way, though!?
I think I’m the same way, and sometimes I even worry that if I sell a yo-yo that I think is fine, the buyer will say, “This thing has vibe!”
Anyway, we’re all different, and I guess vibe really bothers you (or maybe it just does when you pay so much!), but maybe you can suspend that feeling for the 000, and possibly the Tundra, and try to think of it as just being characteristic of those yo-yos. I do admit the vibe really bothered me at first with the Rook, but I still love it, and the overall play of it has helped me forget about the little bit of vibe.
