I’ve had my Duncan DragonFly for several months now. Occasionally, the normally very noisy yo-yo will “short out” - it will stop making its standard hissing noise, become completely silent, and greatly slow down. This is usually fixed by a change of the string, or sometimes by just yo-yoing until it goes away; however, it’s becoming more common. I have never lubricated my bearing - is this the reason?
EDIT: I haven’t cleaned my bearing either. I need to start taking care of my yo-yo. The answer to my question is starting to feel kind of obvious. Still, input would be appreciated.
