I’ve had my dark magic for a few months now and have been wanting to try it with the side caps out. I read here that what was needed was a small suction cup. I don’t have one and haven’t looked into buying one, but something happened today.
It was raining out so I took a water repellent jacket with me to go eat dinner at the grandparents with yoyo in pocket. It wasn’t a hot day but the sun did eventually come out and warm things up to no more than 80. I left the yoyo in the car thinking it would be fine since it wasn’t hot out.
Well, when I got home and took it out of my pocket one of the side caps fell into my hand. The other now turns freely. Also, now when I throw it down there is a rattle. At high rpm it seems to smooth out but as soon as it slows down or sometimes when it hits a string it makes this rattling sound. I really don’t like the rattle. It also annoys me that the side cap moves so easy. I guess I just got used to it being fixed in one place.
So for the rattling side cap, what should I do, live with the rattle or is there an easy way to stop it?
As for the side cap that fell out, I think I’ll just leave it out.
