So I got a Flying Squirrel for Christmas, mostly because my wife liked the name.
It comes stock with Friction stickers, and the bearing that was inside mine was unbelievably bad. I replaced it with a YYF one I had from a Velocity, and it’s now sort of usable.
One friction sticker was installed out of alignment, so I just ripped it out, discovering a starburst response system underneath. I kept the other friction sticker installed.
do people actually use these yoyos for 5A? Out of the package, I can’t imagine how you could even do a Lindy Loop to trapeze (whatever that’s called). With one sticker removed, it’s sort of usable. Sort of. I also still suck, so there’s that.
should I remove the other sticker? Will the starburst response be enough to bind?
should I just give up entirely on the Squirrel as a 5A throw and put the counterweight on another yoyo?
