binds


#1

so, I know how to bind, but today it seems that every bind I do is snagging, is it the string? the silicone?


#2
  1. your bearing needs lube or has junk in it.
  2. your silicone is not broken in (unlikely)
  3. your string.

Thats all I can think of. It’s probably no. 1


#3

Improve your bind.


#4

i can bind as good a binds can be,

anyways, I put the same string on a k-pad 888, and there were no more snags, could it be the silicone?


#5

Dude you can improve your binds by
.binding with a trapeze
.wrapping the string around the yo-yo again if it isn’t binding
.get a different bearing, probably the bearing is messed up. plus, make sure you get the right size.


#6

Try binding straighter, make sure it goes straight down the gap.Did you put in new silicone?If you did it may be the silicone.Also make sure its a backspin bind.Try using less string when you bind.

exact opposite, the silicone’s been in there for 2 months

anyways, the string I was using is incredibly old, problem solved.
