Okay, so I just bought 3 bearings and ALL 3 OF THEM have this issue. Now, this isn’t a specific problem about these certain bearings because I’ve had it happen to all kinds of bearings. I’ll try to describe it as best I can.
Basically, the bearing will spin smooth at low RPM’s, but if I, for example, try to flick it with force so that it may spin faster, it vibrates for a half second or so and then abruptly slows back down so that it doesn’t vibrate anymore. This condition inhibits the bearing, and thus, the yoyo, from spinning efficiently at higher RPM’s.
I don’t know why the bearing does this, because if I did, I probably would’ve encountered or come up with a fix already. I don’t know how these bearings’ structures differ from regular, smooth-spinning bearings, what flaws they have in them, but this is really starting to annoy me especially after the purchase of 3 of the same new bearings and discovering that they all suffer from the same problem.
What really confuses me is that I can’t find any threads about this problem either. I find it very hard to believe that nobody else has encountered this before.
What in the world is up with these bearings?
