Please help, I like my metal drifter but want it unresponsive! Thanks!
Clean the bearing. You can get details here: Useful modification & maintenance guides - Axles,Clean, repair, tune, fix yoyos
You might have to remove one of the response pads also if you want it completely unresponsive.
I would clean the bearing very thoroughly, spray it out with compressed air, leave it dry, then remove one response pad.
If you take the response pad off neatly enough, you can put it on some wax paper or something and save it for later! Yes, I’m a super cheap yoyoer.
