Has anyone noticed that some yoyos play significantly worse with flat bearings than concave bearings? I’ve noticed that certain yoyos play very well with flat bearings. One Drop would be a good example of this. However, there’s other yoyos that don’t play very well with flat bearings at all. All of the YYR’s I’ve played with and my Hideyoshi don’t play too well with flat bearings. For some reason, in my experience, certain yoyos are much more vulnerable to turning if the string isn’t centered. Playing with my Hideyoshi I notice that it turns a lot more than my other yoyos such as the Valor when the string isn’t centered and is sitting on the sides of the bearing next to the response.
Has anyone else experienced this? Any explanation for it?
