I have a question about bearings and maybe you guys can help.
I’m an intermediate player, just moving to more advanced tricks like The Matrix, Buddha’s Revenge, Kwijibo, etc. I recently bought CLYW Arctic Circle and I love the bearing that comes with it (and the yoyo as well ^^). It’s smooth and has concave.
The thing is that I don’t seem to get the spin times with other bearings that I get with CLYW’s bearing. My throw is not that good, but CLYW bearing really does the trick when doing “long” string tricks or practising them (when I have to do them kinda slow). I’ve tried One Drop 10 ball bearing and KonKave (both out of the box, no cleaning or lubing), but with them the yoyos die too quick. I’d like to use the CLYW bearing with my other yoyos (MarkMont Next and Dark Magic II), but they are not for sale anywhere at the moment.
So I’d like to ask you, the more experienced players, what bearings would you recommend and why? Is there maybe better bearings than what CLYW uses, or is the CLYW concaved bearing good in your opinion? Is the problem my throw maybe?
