are DMs responisive when you first get them?


#1

dark magics are supposed to be responsive when they com out of the box right?


#2

I dont think so…mine wasnt. After a dab of thick lube it was.


#3

Depends. Why?


#4

They should be.
However, you can make them unresponsive by…

buying shims…

or buying thin lube…

If it isn’t, you can make it responsive by buying thick lube…

i think one would be if it was tightened all the way

My Dm was when I first get it, it all depeneds on how much lube they put in the bearing at the factory


(winterjibber) #7

mine was and still is very unresponsive


#8

when I first got mine it was not completely responsive, but not unresponsive enough for learning tricks like plastic whip. It wore off in a week or two though so if you prefer responsive play I would suggest getting a bottle of thick lube with it.

Just got it… Unresponsive.


#10

Mine was responsive, so apparently, it differs.


#11

Yes. I have a Hybrid Hitman and it was tightened all the way, when I went ot bind, it flew up and hit me. The new O-Rings and the close Starburst are the problems. I had to either replace the O-Ring with a Silicone O-Ring or loosen up the gap to make it unresponsive. :slight_smile:

Mine was responsive and is still responsive if I want it to be. LAter.

Keep it spinning™

yes, but after it breaks in it won’t be.


#15

Mine came tug responsive but I bought it 1 year ago
so maybe yoyojam changed the way they lube bearings
so maybe newer ones come unresponsive (just a guess)
or maybe it just depends on how they lube it
;D
