So I’m sitting here looking at yoyos and I was wondering, whats the point of having silicone pads???
My friend bought a speed dial and the starburst response works just fine. it can be completly unresponsive or it can be as responsive as you want. it doesnt snag or slip much if you have the speed dial on the right setting.
SO, if starburst works okay, then why are there silicone response pads? The pads are a nuisance in some ways. For example: right now Im on vacation in alabama and i brought along a northstar and one of the pads fell out in the middle of the trick (wore out). Now i have a super slippy yoyo thats hard to use. However, if i had starburst response i wouldnt be having this problem??? another example: i paid like 10$ for several pads that i bought from this website, and somehow they got into the trash (maybe my mom?) so now im 10$ poorer
SO, can someone tell me the great advantages/ disadvantages of both response systems? Do pads help with spin times or something?
