Didn’t really know where to put this, it’s not a review but kind of is; And I modified it, if you count flowable silicone a mod. Haha! Pictures were taken with my phone so take it easy on me.
I got my Sharp about 10 days ago and I have probably put a little over 10 hours on it. Very pleased with it except the response pads. They worked great, but eventually ripped.
As you can see there’s a small rip and it’s wearing down around the edges so I figured I would fix the problem now and it will be playable by the time I’m off work tomorrow.
For those doubting there ability to apply flowable silicone, don’t worry. It was ridiculously easy. I just poked a tinny little hole in the dispensing spout and help it in the groove of the yoyo and spun the yoyo. A little tip I have is to put less than you think you need to; It might not look like it but it will spread out into the edges you missed. I may have put just a tiny bit too much on, but not enough to spill over the edges so I think it will be good.
Can’t wait to try it out, I’ll update to tell you how it plays.
I also cleaned and lubed the bearing, which probably wasn’t necessary but I figured I couldn’t use it anyways.
I’m fairly new to this yoyo phenomenon but i’m already in love with it. Thanks for taking the time to read this, even if most of you probably find it useless.
