Hey guys. I am planning to pick up a Magic YoYo N5. I’ve done a lot of research because I am a noob. I was reading and watching videos up about these Response/Brake Pads for yo yo’s and how they need to be replaced once in a while. I can’t seem to find a store on the internet that sells Magic YoYo branded brake/response pads. Will any other brand work fine with the N5 from Magic YoYo? Thanks!
As long as it fits it should work fine, as far as I know magicyoyos have similar size with most yoyos today, but to be sure try measuring the response depth and width and ask the store if it will fit.
You can use flowable silicone in place of the response pads. I did it to my t9 dark angel yesterday, and it made it so much better response wise.
You will be able to do many yoyo’s out of one tube/syringe of silicone as well.
What is that? Is it some sort of superglue? can you give me a guide on how to install it. Thanks!
Thanks mate, looks a little bit too risky. I will stick with stickers over goo.
It’s really not risky.

The only risk is getting some in the bearing seat which punishes you with a minute of picking it out with a tooth pick
Honest mate my nan could probably do it and she died in 2005, its that easy. Its not risky, you can’t damage the yoyo.
The first time I did it I had to clean a little bit but got it right and functional. I like it better than some stock response pads.
