Is bones skate bearing speed cream safe to use on yoyo bearings?


#1

I was going to use it on one of my yoyos to make it faster, but I’m too scared to use it. It’s worked well with my skate bearings so I was thinking it might work on yoyos too. Will they work?

Skate lube tends to be greasy thick lube. Even the good highend stuff (no better than 3 in 1) is thick lube. Don’t use it unless you want response.

Skateboard bearings (generally) go through a lot more abuse than yoyo bearings do. Because of this, they require thicker lube. I would recommended picking up a bottle of yoyojam thin lube, available on this website, for all of your lubing needs.

It’s a very worthwhile investment. One bottle of thin lube will last for decades.

It’s great for looping but not for anything else as your yoyo will become responsive like nobody’s business.


#5

actually It’s an excellent thin lube.

ORLY? My tube was left open and is like 6 years old. Hmm… Time to huck it methinks.

I know of a few people that swear by it and they’ve been yoyoing for years. I trust em.
