Just wondering if anyone has compared official yoyo silicone to just general purpose silicone?
I only ask, as I noticed the silicone in my main throw has started wearing out and is in dire need of being replaced. I have a few tubes of general purpose silicone lying around and was wondering if it is suitable for the response or should I go for the official yoyo silicone?
It might work, but it also might be messier and harder to work with.
You don’t need to buy any yo-yo specific silicone, the one we sell is Permatex which is a thinner windshield/glass type of silicone sealant. It works well, and you might be able to find something similar at a local store if you don’t want to wait for shipping.
Another tip, the caps of these silicones are often defective and they break (I’m talking about motorsil.d). To prevent the silicone from drying in the packaging, it should be stored in the refrigerator and you may, from the beginning, pour the contents of the tube into syringes.
