Depends, for me 1 hour of play
Depends on how you play and how many times you drop it.
just a few seconds if i use a hammer.
Oh you meant break IN!
just a few hours.
Oh to break in that depends my legacy 2s bearing took for forever to break in!
The world may never know.
Depends, I say it’s broken in after about a week of good play, or a good 20-30 min on the dremel, with some lubricant inside.
I you throw the same one a day or two.
when i started yoyoing it took me 2 hours
now it takes about 13 minutes of continuous play
If break in you mean take a fully lubed bearing and play it till it is unresponsive? then a week or two.
If you mean after you have cleaned it, and only added a drop or two of super thin lube, then about an hour or two.
Given a hammer or something else suitable, about 3 seconds.
If you mean breaking in, it usually takes me about an hour or two of play, depending on the bearing.
About half an hour
Not sure if you are asking:
- How long does it take a bearing to “break” due to wear and tear (bearing life span)?
- How long does it take for a bearing to “break” in?
I guess either question would depend on the type of bearing, it’s quality, extent and duration of usage. If you are curious about the “average life span” of a bearing, the first one…good question. I would like to know too. I have not been yo-yoing long enough to find out. :-\
Wait… Like… breaking your bearing means it becomes unresponsive? Is that bad? Does that mean you need to get a new one? Cause I’ve been playing for 5 days now and I haven’t changed anything…
As far as life span of a bearing, I have bearing in yoyos that still work fine from the late 90’s. a couple with super amounts of play time on them.
no like an hour of spinning it also helps the spin it on a pencil.
