CHIK! Spin Time issue


#1

I have an OD 10ball in my CHIK!, but it is only getting about 1:30 spin time. I tried the same bearing in my Shutter and it got 3:40 spin time. Could this be a bearing seat issue in my CHIK!?


#2

When would you ever need more than a minute of spin?


#3

Nah just learn how the different weight placement of the chik works. I doubt if the bearing seat has anything to do with it. If it’s actually messed up contact the place you bought it from or one drop.


#4

How are you doing the spin test?


#5

The spin test was with the yoyo at the end of the string with a standard sleeper. I made sure the throws were about the same strength and that the string was perfectly centered.


#6

The chik looks like it is not as rim-weighted as the shutter, which would definitely affect the spin time (the further the weight is from the center, the more momentum the yoyo has). That could explain the difference.
