is a Die-f-yo konkave bearing worth it?

Should I get a Die-f-yo konkave bearing? ???


A konkave really only helps in keeping the string centered easier during tricks and such and also helps with multiple layers. But with a good throw you can get the string centered and it will pretty much stay, as for multiple layers I would say a konakave would help in smaller gapped yoyos such as the DM my dv888 does just fine though.

Learn to throw properly. The bearing shouldn’t matter.


As others have said, a clean technique is the best and allows for more bearing options. However, they definitely are nice. I would recommend the Center Trac bearing that you can buy from YYE. $5 less than a standard KonKave, comes pre-cleaned, and is so smooth. Same functionality and a smaller price tag is a win in my book.

try it out if you are willing to shell out the cash for it, maybe you will go crazy for it, only problem is you might want to order a Dif-e-yo KonKave bearing instead of a Die-F-Yo, as I am unsure of where those are made :wink:
