So I used to yoyo around 8 years ago and just picked it up again a couple of weeks ago. I found my old Spintastics Eclipse and Yoyojam Hitman and started using them. Within a week of using those I had to change both of their strings and the Hitman’s bearing. Both of them should be in tip-top shape, but it doesn’t seem that way. I recently bought a One Drop Burnside to replace my older yoyos since they aren’t really working. Any tips?
The Hitman stops sleeping after a few string tricks no matter how hard I throw and how well; it can barely make it through Cold Fusion.
The Eclipse seems to sleep fine and I can do a couple of more complex string tricks with it, but sometimes when I throw it the yoyo seems to slip down the string which not only hurts my finger, but also immensely decreases the time it sleeps.
The Burnside works beautifully and I have absolutely no problems with it, so I don’t think that it is my throwing technique or the way I do my tricks.
