Now HERE is a man who misses the point as a matter of course, yoyodoc.
Frank John… I really don’t know how a man as smart as you seem to be can so very often miss the mark. It astonishes me. It has something to do with your absolutely bent perception that any bearing conversation not immediately and explicitly saying, “Yup, Terrapins are the best!” must naturally be saying the opposite.
Read what I said again. It had nothing… NOTHING to do with bearings that are “just good enough” being “OK with me”. The point somehow divided itself in the space time continuum and went both through your legs and over your head at the same time, completely missing every part of you.
As my point pertained to bearings, it was about this:
cruddy bearing vs. bearing -> the non-cruddy bearing will win! It doesn’t matter much how good the yoyo is, the cruddy, crusty, responsive bearing will severely affect your play experience.
cruddy bearing vs. premium bearing -> the premium bearing will win! It doesn’t matter much how good the yoyo is, the cruddy, crusty, responsive bearing will severely affect your play experience.
In the scope of things, comparing a cruddy bearing to ANY OTHER BEARING within or exceeding playing parameters just doesn’t make sense. It’s a no-brainer that nobody will choose the cruddy responsive crusty bearing no matter what yoyo it’s in. What I was saying is that the comparison that’s actually interesting is “acceptable bearing” vs. “premium bearings”. And that’s where you can jump in and make your pitch that you so often make.
For the love of god, at LEAST take the time to understand what people are saying before you try to argue with them. And before you try to argue more or make a smart comment, let me try my best to circumvent you: The only acceptable response here is either no response (you’ve got every right to not bother yourself with this conversation) or “oops, yeah, my bad.” Anything else is a joke.
