You all know what string vibration is right?
Think of this (Just not as pronounced.)
Yes, I have string vibration when I throw my ONE. I know why, but I can’t locate the source of this why. My yoyo feels as if there was a little bump somewhere.
How do I know? Well, I throw it and (different from my dark magic) the string does not rest straigth, sometimes it vibes close to the lower end, as if some ghost was playing guitar. eerie music
(As I said, is not as pronounced as the image but you CAN notice this).
Anyways, as you let the yoyo die, you can actually FEEL and HEAR something awry. You can NOTICE it happens on each revolution (bump bump bump bump) and you can barely hear a small click at the precise moment you feel the bump and the string vibes. Of course, this click can be the result of the whole ballbearing jumping due to a bump located elsewhere.
At first I thought maybe the ballbearing was dirty so I removed it and used the “paper method” to clean it. I put it back, tried and had the same results.
Then I used compressed air, the ballbearing was spinning like crazy when I tried it on a pen, so I said “that’s it! :D”, I put it back in my ONE and obtained the same results as before.
Then… I told myself: “Myself, what if is not the ballbearing?”, so I picked up my WHIP and switched the aforementioned piece. The WHIP is responsive and has no vibe at all (and is quieter than the ONEever was) and the ONE is unresponsive and does NOT vibe… and is quieter than before ¬¬
So… anyone had this issue before, any suggestions?
I am going to keep this config, but it annoys me the fact that I am using the whip with the ONE stock Ballbearing considering it was originally meant to be an unresponsive yoyo
Thanx for your attention
