Hey guys. This is LeftHandedYoyoer and I’m new to this forum (except I posted a question on my Replay Pro). So I have a couple questions:
My first yoyo, the YYF Velocity, had cracks all over the white adjustable part that has the response pads on it. So I put that aside, and purchased the YYF Replay Pro. I LOVE IT! It is my second yoyo and I can do the man on the flying trapeze, kamikaze mount, and sort of boing y boing with a dash of wobbling to the side (It’s won’t bounce straight).
Tragically, my Replay Pro’s yoyo bearing fell off after I think I put too much lube in the bearing and it fell out. I noticed when I was playing and I took apart the yoyo. I tried putting the response pads back in in hopes of gluing it back, BUT it WON’T FIT! Like it’s a much bigger diameter than the actually groove for it. What’s wrong with it?
So my parents said they would get me a really good metal yoyo and I searched one and did some research and went on the Benchmark 2016 H Series in the Nickel Color. Why is the nickel color more expensive?
I also order some Kitty String Fat Polyester 10 count in Light Pink (Pink seems awesome and green/blue were are sold out…darn)
I also ordered the Slim Pads for the Replay Pro. I am worried that they won’t fit because the ones that fell off were MUCH bigger than the actual groove itself. Were the pads stretched from the playing or what?
Also, I ordered fat string because people say it lasts longer, it’s smoother, and better for beginners.
Also, I am LEFT hand (hence my name) and I really want to yoyo and do those cool speed combo tricks, but they all seem to go so fast and have so many string jumping tricks. I would like to learn a small, easy, beginner speed combo that looks cool. As for now, I’ll just do a sleeper and bind my yoyo for fun. I also use the LIGHT, synthetic, non-toxic, (water density), trumpet valve oil for my lubrication.
How do I “break in” a yoyo bearing? How is it for the One Drop 2016 Benchmark H? Do I put thin lube when I FIRST get it? I want my bearings to last a LONG time.
Finally, I couldn’t find much on the new 2016 One Drop Benchmark H, V, O, or W. Anyone have any reviews, tips, and suggestions? Thanks!
