Just got a manatee, I love the feel and shape, but it is essentially responsive! I am not at home and dont have any lube with me, so I have not yet tried lubing the bearing. I also noticed the bearing doesn’t spin a long time when I spin it with my finger.
Do you guys think lube will sort out the issue, or is it likely something else? I noticed my Kintosh has a similar issue, but only winds without a bind rarely or with a lot of slack (like when I try a finger grind). My steel, kenshin, shuta, and horizon never behaved like this.
