i have a DM2 and my stock response pads finally gave out, so i replaced them with the clear pads that came with it. they stick out to far and it essentially makes my unresponsive yoyo responsive…the string catchs on almost any trick and i cant seem to fix the issue. im ordering a 888X soon and was wondering if they sell the stock pads that came with the DM2 so i could order replacements at the same time. couldnt find it on forums or site, or if anyone has a idea as to how to wear the pads down so they are level with yoyo (not sticking out so darn much)
But if you want to wear the pads down(not a bad idea), it is suggested to use a durable fabric. It’s generally recommended to use denim.
You may want to order at least 1 new set of pads with every new yoyo you have unless you’d like to try your hand at siliconing them using gasket making silicone or flowable silicone, all of which are available at auto-parts stores. YoYoExpert also sells the flowable silicone here.
thanks for that! yah i was thinking of trying my hand at the flowable silicone thing. but im deff gonna order the normal pads for it…i have no idea why it came with these monster thick ones as spares lol?
A trip to the auto parts store and you can get gasket making silicone or flowable. There’s videos how to use both. Wait up to 24 hours and you’re ready to throw again.
Order replacement pads from YYE, but ask for standard postage. 3-5 days and you’re good to get back into it again. If you do go this route, order a few sets. I have 4 sets since I have a fair amount of YYJ yoyos that use these.
Of course, now you know why you should have more than 1 yoyo!
If you don’t want to order a set of pads from YYE, PM me and I’ll trade you a set of my YYJ Silicone for your One Drop responses you got by mistake. I can mail it Monday. Just an envelop(gee, do I even have any? I’m not sure) and a stamp.
Umm, studio, you can’t just take out the pads and mail the again, a lot of the glue would have come off in the yoyo and the wouldn’t stick back in properly.
For pads the Duncan sg’s work great and play really well, they feel almost he same as yyj’s too me but last longer, and come in 4 packs.
Sweet. They won’t move until Monday though. Your replacements will go in the mail Monday night. I have some CD’s and DVD’s to mail to a client, so since I have to go mail stuff anyways, it will on it’s way after 5PM.
