So I asked in another category about response pads for my vsNYYC Septopus. Actually would be the size of GSQUARED Gpads. I’m not finding any, so I decided to get a tube of sealant @ Walmart and try to do my own. I’ve watched the vlogs on g2’s site and a few others. Now, I have changed pads on my throws, so I’m good at cleaning the old stuff out.
This yoyo had too much silicone before, I wish now that I took a before photo. But the spin was almost immediately killed due to rubbing the string. I knew that I would have to create a channel in the shape of the new silicone so as to not rub anywhere other than the hump designed into the area right above the response channel
After doing it, and shaping the silicone I was really wondering if I had not put enough sealant in the groove. I wondered this all night hoping I could play with my new throw in the morning. Wow what a long night.
So after careful examination, I double checked the bearing area and reassembled my new Septopus. The first few throws were, huh, did I get it. I played and played and now a few hours later, well that was easy. Now I’m a beginner here to this awesome hobby, so my opinion is what it is. just that, an option, from an older guy with life skills and the beginnings of some yoyo skills.
For those wondering if it is worth doing. Absolutely!!!
