I have a 2012 Genesis that is perfectly mint and played so smoothly. I decided just to try out a KK bearing, so I changed them out. At that moment, the Genesis became my favorite throw. Any of you ever tried new bearings that change the yoyo to be so good?
I just wish that all my yoyos can have a working CTX bearing.
I have absolutely had that experience. Sometimes I don’t like a yoyo as much as I could because it doesn’t spin long enought to do some fo my combos. The KK really extends the combo lengths I can do.
KKs are so much better than flats in most yoyos tbh. String bunching is a lie
My prestige prototype. Put a generic chinese KK in it and MAN! My favorite unresponsive throw.
I hate flat bearings, so KKs make almost every thing better imo.
2014 sasquatch + kk = money
I haven’t tried a KK yet, but I have three CTs and a Crucial Grooved. Both types make a significant difference in play opposed to flat bearings. The CT’s are a bit more subtle, but the effect is still there. I really enjoy the Crucial Grooved and how it keeps the string pretty much exactly centered. With flat bearings it seems like the string gets pushed tight against a wall about every third throw or so, and that’s really annoying because it just drains spin time.
I do enjoy the sound and smoothness of OD’s 10 ball, but the performance just isn’t as good unless I get lucky and the string starts out centered. I’d rather have consistent performance over sound and smoothness.
I just ordered some billy bobs, does anybody have any experience with them? They seem promising for the price, so I figured why not give them a go? I’m interested in how they stack up to my other bearings, seeing as they’ll be my only 10 balls besides my OD’s, the V cut is different, and the ceramic balls. I’m hoping they’re at least on the level of my CT’s.
KKs are the bombb
The only reason flat bearings are even relevant these days are the messiah of bearings, the almighty ten-ball
