does silicon make a yoyo less responsive???

hey guys,

So i have a [shadow=red,left]DM[/shadow] and i have tried everything! (i do not want ideas, i just want you to answer the question) does silicon response make it more unresponsive??? If it does, how much more unresponsive??? (little bit, medium, or a lot) Please help!!!

In my experience it makes actual play less responsive due to the silicone actually becoming somewhat concave in the groove ( at least for me ), But during a bind you get a nice tight responsive bind because that loop gets caught in the recess of the sili. Hope that helps. Play may become slightly to medium in play responsiveness at least for your DM. Sili also lasts much longer than pads.
