Bearing shield

Are shields on yoyo bearings important? The shield came off my fiesta, I’m guessing it’s no big deal because you have to de-shield it to clean it, but i’d like to know

keeps dirt and stuff out of the bearing, so, technically, yes. Important.

I see that but when you clean it you have to de-shield it and there’s no way to re-shield it.

to reshield it, you put the shield back on, put the c-clip on and you’re ready to go.

I would reshield it just because it an offstring yoyo and will hit the ground alot

Well crap. I lost the c clip. :confused:

Its really not too important though yyj bearings arent very expenseive
