this happened before to me with the DMII pads when I first got it, they were completely unresponsive. It ended up that I hadn’t taken the covers off of the pads and had them in backward… :< The same things happened with these pads, but I can’t find any cover, and only one side is sticky… Am I missing something? They’re COMPLETELY unresponsive…
Dude knows what he’s talking about. Dif pads and poly string don’t mix well, unless you’re pairing one Dif pad with a different type of pad - personally, I like one Dif with one Kentaro pad. If you don’t have another type of pad to pair it with, you can try looping the string around the bearing a second time and then exaggerating your bind. Depending on how wide the gap is on the yoyo you’re using, that should work until you can get a different pad or some 50/50 string.
So, even when you wind the yo-yo up by hand, the string slips out when you throw? Or when you wind it by hand, can you pull the string right out of the gap? If so, that’s the pits.
I would not suggest Dif pads with a DMII. They are meant for a different response system. I would suggest to either put silicone in it(the time-consuming route), or use the CBC pads, like the link below (the easier route):
It says “yoyofactory”, but these will fit in the groove the DMII has. Just pick the “slim” option, and match your choice to the stock “response system” section of this:
Call the number under “Contact” if you have any questions. The live help is actually helpful.
I would also suggest using the slim bearing, if your yo-yo came with it. That will make the yo-yo more responsive, and maybe even have it come up with a tug (instead of a bind).
Hope you find the response you are looking for. It’s a life-long journey to find the “perfect” set-up for you.
Ah whoops, I apparetly forgot to mention these aren’t for a DMII, they’re for an M1.
Yes, it just slips right out. Binding really hard only works part of the time. I’m not sure whats up I’d put silicone in it, but the groove is flat and shallow, and it doesn’t hold silicone very long, and it’s easy to get it all over the bearing seat. So I ordered some of these dif pads instead but they’re “not working”. I’ll try it with 50/50.
