duncan fhz unresponsive

i have a duncan fhz and i really want to make it unresponsive, how do i go about doing this(without sili recessing) i have already tried taking off a single pad but it is still responsive…

Have you cleaned the bearing and tried poly string?

i only use poly but no matter how hard i try, the c clips on my bearing just wont come off

Try getting a magnifying glass so you can better see the clips and try using a different tool to remove them. Sometimes I use a needle, other times a thumb tack, and occasionally I even use an x-acto knife. Always use caution when using sharp pointy objects…OUCH! ;D

Take off one pad


It helps to read the original post before replying, wouldn’t you say…

Are you using friction stickers or silicone stickers? One silicone sticker and a bearing cleaning does it for me. I also always end up cleaning my A bearings with the shields on. Those things are tough to remove.

lol i didnt even know there was a differece between the friction stickers and silicone sticker.

The friction stickers are just that- stickers that add friction to the yo-yo and generally make it responsive. Silicone stickers are smoother, giving you a longer spin and reducing response.

Awww JHB where’s the kid picking his nose?
