About a month ago I purchased a OD Dietz in the Yoyo Expert color scheme. No big deal. When the yoyo arrived, I noticed that the little brown onedrop box was just a little “worn”. It most certainly wasn’t a problem. Putting a string on it, I quickly began throwing. I was amazed at the fact that the yoyo made absolutely no noise. None what-so-ever. It spun like a mad man and was an absolute dream. I huffed it through a couple tricks and was in love.
I attributed the “silent running” to it being a 10 ball bearing. So right away, I got online and ordered another one for my crucial. When I got it and put it in, it made the standard bearing noise. So my question is why did one make noise and the other didn’t? Could it be that the bearing in the Dietz had been lubed or broke in prior to me getting it? If so, who did it?..
I think it was Andre. While flying around on his private jet with his good friend Daniel, they would practice their tricks. Since Andre swears by his DM2, he could never be seen in public using anything else. However, he must have lost a bet with Daniel and had to use Dan’s yoyo for a bit, thus the break in. Then when I placed my order, he thought “I’ll give the Doctor Daniel’s yoyo. That would be a nice thing to do.” Hence the break in / silent running.
You can’t really argue with that logic. ;D
