I've decided...i HATE quiet bearings

The only quiet bearing i have is the kk on my Eneme…it is whisper quiet and butter smooth. and my coworkers were thankful when i got it! But i’ve gotten so used to listening to the yoyo to see when i should bring it back up that my eneme will die on me and i’ll have no clue! I wasn’t going to clean it…i have now changed my mind… :slight_smile:

the quietness takes a bit of getting use to but if your bearing works smooth, I would not clean it.


I don’t really care but I prefer quiet bearings.

Get used to it, and get over it.

I LOVE quiet bearings.

Play with the yoyo more. Soon you’ll be pick up on how much longer the yoyo is going to spin by reasons other than sound.

I don’t care how loud or quiet it is, I just want it to run smoothly!

You learn to not depend on the sound to know when to bind it with a quiet bearing.

I like when my yoyo sings to me!

Seriously…“yoyoexpert” or not…keep the negative stuff out of my threads.

If you’re competing or in noisy environments, the bearing noise is going to get lost in the ambient noise anyways, so best to learn to make do. I agree that smooth is better than LOUD. Plus, if you’re throwing around co-workers, not everyone appreciates all the noises around them: Mean phone calls, bodily functions, annoying phone ring tones, noisy yoyos…

Now, my ONE is LOUD. The shape acts as a natural amplifier, regardless of what kind of bearing I put in there, it’s loud. Same bearing in my DM2, it’s quiet.

I’d prefer a little bit of noise, but in my environment at home, my kids are a source of never ending noise, so there’s no point in a noisy bearing to help me know when to recall the yoyo. Kids screaming and fighting is “bad noise”.

I love loud bearings but smooth sounding bearings they sound sick too

yo, dea’ wit’ it bruh.

No negativity here.
And either way.
Don’t tell me to do something.


I remember when you were friendly. :frowning:

me to- oh wait, he kinda still is…

Im one of the friendliest Griffons you will ever meet actually.
If im not completely annoyed by your presence.

And either way.
I can tell you whatever i want. If all you’re going to do is come in and post something rude then you might as well not even post at all. Period. If you have a problem with that then i do not care. I am not friendly nor do i care to be your friend. People like you make forums unenjoyable and completely wack.

Thanks for the laugh, very entertaining to see you come to that conclusion of a post.

Have a nice day!
