So i ordered a bumblebee and stupidly didn’t order thick lube, so i was wondering if you could use vaseline petroleum jelly on it to make it more responsive. (i did it on my transaxle fireball and there was a definite increase in response)
Yes, you could. On my bearing loopers I like to use the white moly grease that comes in a small tube.
you can also use household 3 in 1 lubricant, you can find it in most any store.
While I do not own a bumblebee and I’m far from modding my yoyos, this topic rised my curiosity.
Isn’t petroleum jelly way too thick?
Not for a looper. They need to be responsive.
Wouldn’t it not sleep at all with a glob of vaseline in it? Or do you not want it to at all?
You dont really need a looping yoyo to sleep
Do a double loop with the string on the bearing that will work also.
Sometimes, but lubing it is better.
