Does this happen to you?


#1

I was using my phenomizm with a kk bearing then all of a sudden, it gets super loud and responsive.
has this happened to anyone and if yes, how do you fix it?


#2

Check your string it may be getting old and worn just change it


#3

That wouldn’t solve the bearing loudness would it? I had my One Drop Dang turn into a jet engine the other day, the bearing is crazy loud, still unresponsive though. I probably just need to put some lube in it, but haven’t played it since then and have not taken the time to ask so I guess I’m asking. What does an all of a sudden super loud bearing mean?


#4

Whoa…
I just fixed it :slight_smile:
For some reason, Gyroscopic Flop fixes it I think. It’s dead unresponsive, and it’s as loud as it used to be.
If this ever happens to you, use Gyroscopic Flop! It should do something :wink:


#5

Ya sometimes my throws will randomly do that. Nothing some v4m can’t handle!


#6

Wow, that’s weird, haha. I wonder if Gyroscopic Flops can fix other stuff, too


#7

Yeah I have some V4M I might need to throw at it.


#8

you tried it? and it worked? You know there’s a thank you button around here somewhere… :wink:

I would try this if I don’t have any of that or on my person at the time :wink:


#9

The loudness and responsivenes is part of the breaking in prosses. For some reason giro flops accelerate bearing break in time I think is because the yoyo is moving in 2 planes at once.


#10

Probably just a bit of dust in the bearing, just not enough for responsiveness. Just clean it out and it will be back to normal.


#11

Though a different yoyo, I have had my No.9 go from dead silent unresponsiveness to a sudden loud buzzing and tug responsive. After taking the bearing out and giving it a little puff, it was fine again. However it began doing it again so I gave the bearing a good soak and cleaned the gunk in the bearing seat that was possibly jamming things up. Since, my No.9 has been behaving.


#12

Well, I had that problem but it was because the yoyo was coming loose. I didn’t tighten it up quite enough after having to take it apart to remove a knot. But, we should all check our yoyos before we start playing and after having to take it apart.

Just another possibility. Glad to hear whatever the original issue was, it was a nice simple fix. I thinkI should go learn Gyro Flops soon! Might be a while though, I’m trying t get the Matrix down. Getting there!
