buying Dark Magic... should upgrade bearing?


#1

im going to be purchasing a Dark Magic in the near future and i was wondering if I should get a KonKave bearing to upgrade it right away? i live in Canada, so shipping is a bastard. I like to order things in one shipment instead of making a second order just for a bearing

any help or comments would be GREATLY appreciated… thanks

Should be fine, the yyj stock bearings are pretty awesome


#3

Indeed. The stock bearing on my legacy is quite nice.


#4

KK bearings have a tendency to bunch-up strings when layered causing unexpected binds and pain.


#5

The stock bearing in the Dark Magic will be great. Konkaves won’t really help you much, if at all, but they do give a different feeling to the yoyo. If you have the money and want to try one out, go for it, but it won’t make the yoyo any better.

i recommend instead to buy silicone for it and/or spacers if you want a little extra unresponsive play. its great on mine :slight_smile:


#7

what does the silicone and the spacers do?


#8

Spacers widen the gap of the yoyo making it more unresponsive.

Silicone replaces the rubber O ring that the Darg Magic has. It creates a more unresponsive yoyo and smoother binds.

They’re out of stock with the red shims and silicone though. The things I wanted. :frowning:

yeah they are out :frowning: but u can try other brands beside yyj’s and they should work also you can try other sites to see if they are in stock. but i really like them and i think anybody with a dm would like them too :wink:


#10

People wanna save money on shipping. If they had it here, it’d be $5 saved. Just a thought :slight_smile:


#11

they are very low on Thin Lube in the store. and the silicone rings are out. i was wondering how often they restock?


#12

Ask the store themselves. They know. I’m about to shoot them an email.

I JUST ORDERED THE ROYAL DARK MAGIC!!! YAAAYYY!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D 8) 8)

anyway i also ordered both types of YYJ lube.

and i want those Synergy caps… too bad they didnt have any left. :’( :’(


#14

That looks really nice.

And we’re glad to have helped.


#15

If you want shims here is a tutorial on how to make them.

For the silicone just go to the hardware store and get a tube of flowable silicone or RTV(if the dont have the flowable type). A tube cost 5$. Then stop by a pharmacy and get big 20cc seringe (the ones that dont have a needle) to apply the silicone.


#16

The slim k pad works


#17

A syringe (sp) isn’t really needed for applying silicone. It works fine to just use the tube and cap it off when you’re done.


#18

The seringe makes the silicone applying easier and more accurate and saves silicone.
