I have two Question on the Ooch Smoov yo yo?

Hello i’m new to Yo Yoing i just bought a Ooch Smoov, i was going to change the response system to silicone instead of there sponge o-ring. Would the silicone work better? and i bought one for my brother and he has gone through 3 Strings in 30 min… is that normal? Thanks for your help

well normally yes the silicon will work better, but that’s kinda preference based. And the 3 strings in 30 min, it really depends on how hard and how much he was throwing it, if he was throwing full speed a lot than yes it is normal. But not if he was causally throwing it.
