Hello everybody. The pads on my yyj chaser finally ripped apart so i decided to silicone the grooves instead of getting new pads. After letting the silicone dry for a day like you should, i picked it up to play. A “flick start” (or whatever you want to call it) was nearly impossible and when i finally got the yoyo back to my hand to throw it again the string just spun around on the bearing and the yoyo spins very slowly. I can manage to get it tight and throw good throws with it eventually, but its just annoying when im trying to learn new tricks or do a long enough trick where the yoyo is spinning slow and i cant do a bind that allows me to throw a good throw again. Any ideas? Did i not do enough silicone or use the wrong silicone for the job? The silicone is use is not exactly flowable but i can get it nice and smooth in the groove.
Thanks a bunch!
