Elysian Owners...questions

I just received my Elysian and finding it that while it’s an awesome yoyo, I can’t trust it, finding unpredictable snag, nearly got punched in the eyes twice by it now. I am using the stock flat bearing in it and it is fully clean, no grit. Has anyone had any issues like this with theirs? Is it that the pads are just too grabby brand new and requires breaking in? Should I switch to a grooved bearing?

I really want to enjoy this but at the same time I don’t want to get smacked by it followed my me taking it and chucking it somewhere :o

it does like to snap back a little bit all it is is the new brakes it will wear out… also be very careful when unscrewing the yoyo it is prone to strip…
