big-yo, big problems


#1

let me start by saying that im not sure this thread belongs in this forum.

ok, i got a big yo see. i played with it for a few months after i got it, then put it down for maybe 2 or 3 months. wen i try offstring on it after that time i find it can’t bind. so what do i do? simple, this:

  1. i take out the rubber o-rings.
  2. i silicone the grooves the o-rings went in.
  3. while the silicone was still wet, i put the o-rings back in, making them sit just slightly higher then they were.
  4. let it dry.
  5. gasp at how well it worked.

when i got this idea i thought it would either not work or it would ruin my yo. then i thought, what the heck, might as well try it. it seems to work just great! now i want you guys to tell me if this was a good idea.

Is the response still in it? If so, then its how you bind, make sure your giving it enough slack.


#3

before i siliconed it i could wrap the string around the bearing twice and it would still just fall to the ground. the mod helped a lot.


#4

Not exactly sure what could have happened to it but I find that it wouldn’t bind strange. That’s never happened to mine.


#5

Wait, So is it like the yoyo has no response or grip at all? Does it throw normally?


#6

it threw fine, but the string wouldnt catch a bind.
