Sooo I just got my One Drop 54 for christmas…and I love it except for the bearing. The fact is that I’ve been coddled by the KK bearing in my Protostar for the past few months. I really like the smoothness that comes with the 10-ball, but I find that my OD just becomes unstable so easily with it in. (And no, it’s not that I’m not throwing it straight. Whenever I throw, the string is pretty much dead-center on the bearing, but as I do tricks I have to shift my entire body to keep the yoyo from veering off.)
Today, I popped out my KK bearing from my Protostar and put it in my OD…and it plays wonderfully now. In fact…I love my protostar even more with the ten-ball in rather than the KK. I dunno…my protostar doesn’t become unstable even though I don’t have the KK bearing in it. I think it’s because of the H shape. I dunno.
But then I got to thinking: Wouldn’t it be magical if there were 10-ball KK bearings? That would pretty much make my OD my favorite throw then. I did a google search and found that they do exist…but I don’t wanna get a cheap, low quality bearing and then get frustrated again. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with 10 ball KK bearings? TELLL MEEE!
