Making response pads?

I have used a needle to scratch up the silicone area, and it solved the falling out issues(which I had with generic and monkey snot). A little harder to get out, but not much harder then scraping the glue from the pads off the yoyo.

I just did my Flea with Monkey Snot a few weeks ago. We’ll see how it lasts, but it binds so much better.
