So I was hoping some people who have received their Puffin 2 from the recent release could weigh in on this for me. I just received my Green Apple Puffin 2 today, and I’ll be sending it back for a full refund tomorrow. First things first, I did not buy from YYE. I know that here at YYE each yoyo is tested for vibration before it is sent to a customer.
Anyway, the Puffin 2 I received today has more vibration than any yoyo I have ever played. I have tried tuning the axle, switching the bearing, and swapping the axle out for a different one. None of that has helped at all. I’ve owned a few different Fool’s Gold yoyos from CLYW, and none of them had vibe near as bad as this Puffin 2 does. I have also owned a 1st run Puffin 2 that was made at a machine shop in Canada, and it was dead smooth.
I plan on hunting down another Puffin 2 on the BST once I receive my refund for this vibey one, and I’m hoping that people can weigh in on their 2nd run Puffin 2. Are all of them vibey, or did I just get a bad apple? The Puffin 2 is one of my favorite yoyos of all time, and I’d like to find another to replace this one as quickly as possible, so knowing if most of them from the 2nd run are vibe free will help me replace this one quicker. Thanks for any and all input!
