I got my new 100% polyester strings and thin and thick shims today, and after I applied the thin (gray) shims I stringed the yo-yo with one of the new strings. and after 3 throws while tugging on the string to see if the yo-yo is unresponsive (it was) the string broke. I tried 2 more strings from the same kind right now and it was ok. so can it be that I had bad luck and pulled a defective string ?
PS. the bearing is much louder now is it because of the shims or I need to lube it ?
Thanks in advance
