Loop 900 Setup?


(laxdude99) #1

Im just wondering how you guys set up your loop 900s or looping yoyos in general

I tighten it all the way then turn 1.5 turns
Clean then v4m the bearings
Use string bottom of my pocket length


#2

Slick8 string, tie another loop just below the existing one. The longer string goes on the yo-yo that I scratched the logo off, which is held on my right hand.

The gaps just vary a bit. These strings get thinner as they wear down, and I tighten the gaps to match the string. I sometimes have to widen the gap a whole turn when I get new strings put on.

Two drops of YYJ thin lube on each bearing whenever I think about it. Also, use a wet cotton swab to clean out the spacers and the spacer-recess whenever I think about it.

And tighten the yo-yo when ever it starts coming apart when I am actually playing with it. Not one of the things I appreciate, but every yo-yo will have some flaw.

I don’t really know how much I tightened mine tbh. I just kind of played with them and tightened until I got that happy medium.
I use 50/50 string though, and use some 3 in 1 after cleaning the bearings.

For string length, I just hold the string in my fingers, and go down to about the bottom of my armpit. I find this is a great length. gives very good control.

One time setting, small adjustments, then throw the key away, I’d never readjust it ever again unless it hit something and it loops different. I don’t wanna get into habit of keep adjusting the gap, I personally think it’s silly.
