Ok… so I’m starting out in this hobby and I’m starting to practice for extended periods (for the first time).
After a relatively short amount of time the yoyo feels (much?) less responsive to binds. I find that replacing the string immediately resolves the issue.
The yoyo (a Shutter) is a month old… so I presume my response pads are not worn out. (right?)
Is it normal to replace strings as often as once a day? (some # of hours of practice/play on them)
Or is the less-responsive feel I’m describing “normal”…
(I’m using polyester strings…)
I have included a picture of my string after just one practice session as it is starting to feel sloppy (pic below left) and a reference pic of a new string (pic below right)
Is this performance normal? Am I changing the string too frequently? Or should I be changing string this frequently? Are my response pads worn out (not likely I’m guessing…)
Thanks in advance for any insight or advise you can provide!
