Okay, so I’m not too new to this. I understand bearing and the anatomy of the yoyo. I just bought a Dark Magic II due to the reviews saying it was great for string tricks. Up till now I was using a DV888 (great yoyo BTW)
So here is the problem. I tried a simple man on the flying trapeze and the spin dies almost immediately. don’t even attempt a split bottom mount. It seems to sleep fine, but as soon as that string wraps around the bearing again, it kills the vibe, so to speak. I know its not the string because I used the same string on the 888 and it worked fine.
Any idea? thanks in advance
