New Hybrid Hitman

I just received a new Hybrid Hitman. It’s waaay unresponsive! I’m paranoid about overtightening so what’s the best way to make it more responsive? I also have a Dark Magic (no mods) and it’s way more responsive.

Use YoYoJam Thick Lube in the bearing to make it more responsive. :wink:

yup thats one of the only ways other then overtightening,but learn to bind if you havent already

Or you can do what DAvid Ung does and melt vaseline on it.


When I got my Hybrid Hitman from A2Z, it was really responsive, even with a worn out string. How is yours ,“Waaaaaaay” unresponsive? I had to loosten my yoyo to get the gap as far as the end of the bearing. ???

Because when you got your HM, I dont think YYJ had upgraded there bearings.

yeah the new bearings are nice, nut i still use a kk, in my hitman and i love it.

Thanks to all for taking the time to respond. I’m going with thick lube and 50/50 string. Bind returns are much smoother. The bearing is a little noisy though.
