Hello. This last week I’ve been learning to bind. I have two yo-yos: Yomega Maverick, and a YYJ Classic with unresponsive pads and bearing. I don’t have any problems binding the Maverick, most likely because of the rubber response pads. The Classic is much harder. I can return the yo-yo only after I just throw a sleeper. If it slows down a little bit, I can’t get it to return. Any advice? I watch videos where the yo-yo is left spinning for some time, and after they bind it snaps right up. If I do the same, I can watch the string spin around the axel, but will never grab.
One more question. Do you need to put a tiny drop of thin lube on a new bearing, or do they come lubed? I didn’t, just curious.
