I’m considering applying thick lube to one of my wide gapped, unresponsive throws to make it responsive. I’m thinking…my DV888 or even my Lyn Fury [once I swap the cracked bearing inside].
I’ve felt like my yoyo play is still not smooth and clean, no matter how many times I do the same tricks over and over again. I started with unresponsive yoyos, but I’m also learning looping/2A. So how I was ‘brought up’ is a bit different. So I want to also play responsive to practice.
I’m not saying that I won’t get better unless I play responsive or people who only play unresponsive are sloppy. Not at all. I’m just saying that if I can make my throw tug responsive.
And to those who have actually done this…does it work? I’m really curious.
