does silicone make the yoyo less or more responsive?

see title…

Silicone will/should make yo-yos unresponsive. Sometimes, they need to be broken in first before it becomes unresponsive.

Silicone is a bit more grippy, which means that you can recess it and so on. You can also get raised silicone from either thick pads or a silicone job. This will give a good amount of response, and is actually used in Sunset Trajectories.


#4

Yes, silicone is actually more responsive then, say, rubber o-rings, which is why it should be played recessed or flush.


#5

if i have a rubber response system can i just take it out to make my yoyo unresponsive?


#6

No, because then the yoyo will not have anything to grab on, and it will not return to your hand.


#7

bunds wont work?


#8

No, because it won’t have any response, at all. An unresponsive yo-yo still needs response.

I just wanted to point out that Sunset Trajectories use rubber o-rings and not silicone o-rings. :slight_smile:

but some players use silicone in them also if he meant that.
