I know a lot of you are thinking, “wtf n00bz0r no one plays with a Maverick, they play so bad, the bearings are nonstandard and the response is weird… ect. ect. ect.” So, a lot of you complain that even with the thicker shims (or spacers or w/e) installed the Maverick is still too responsive, making tricks like plastic whip impossible. Well, you might say, hey, what if I clean the bearing? Cleaning the bearing may help but not too much. I suggest putting on some really skinny string, I hate Alchemy String. however I have the greater half of a 100 bundle still in my possession. so I put on on and holy canoley this thing plays with the rest well. I can hit neigh every trick I know in 1A with the Maverick. I wouldn’t say it is my favorite throw, but like I said, pop an Alchemy or an Angel Hair on it and it plays considerably more unresponsive, I dare say it is even completely unresponsive now.
I don’t know if there are any of you out there that still play a Maverick or even retain one, but if you do give it a shot, let me know how it worked for you.
EDIT: Also, while I am thinking about it. Have any of you sili’d a Maverick and if so how did you do it, just filled the response groove and recessed it? How did it work out?
