My dm


(G5) #1

It is completely unresponsive, but I want to silicone it. Will it make it responsive?


(POLLO YOYO) #2

no silicone will make it unresponsive but if you want it responsive tighten the gap and double loop it or thick lube it


#3

No. If you silicone it right it will not be responsive. Though you will have to break it in first.


(JackG) #4

if it is already unresponsive there is no need to pay for silicone

Silicone is a lot more than just unresponsive play. Tighter binds, less snags and less friction during play make silicone play way better than rubber.

I think it’s important to note that silicone is just another kind of response. Unresponsiveness is a combination of bearing cleanliness/thin-lubediness, gap width, and the LAST part of the equation is the response. Silicone-ing a responsive yo-yo will not necessarily make it unresponsive.
