Friction sticker is wearing off


#1

My Metal Drifter’s friction sticker is starting to wear off and it’s not spinning as well as it used to.
Is there anything I can do?

Lube the bearing. Use this stuff: http://shop.yoyoexpert.com/product/58/YYJ-Lube

Or, maybe upgrade the bearing. Terrapin X makes a replacement, and now that I know that, I’ll add an A-sized bearing to my next order from him. Odds are you don’t need a new bearing, just clean what you’ve got.

Maybe just buy new Friction Stickers. Or the Silicone Stickers that will fit your yo-yo. (the Silicone Stickers 12 mm 8 pack for $5).

P.S. If you only buy the stickers, you can save on shipping if you call, and ask for just having an envelope shipped instead of a box.
