Hey everyone. Figured I’d ask here as YoyoFactory and YoyoCanada (where I purchased) hasn’t gotten back to me.
I got a brand new Shutter Wide Angle for my birthday on August 9th.
My amazing wife got me a decent throw because I recently got back into Yoyo after about 17 years.
My first few throws didn’t feel right. The Yoyo would die out before completing a simple “Cold Fusion”.
I figured the bearing just needed to be broken in, so I gave it a few days…it got worse.
I figured the bearing may need a cleaning and re-lubing…when I unscrewed the Yoyo, the bearing just fell out…
Normally with every other Yoyo I own, even the cheap ones, a bearing removal tool is needed to remove the bearing.
The bearing in my Wide Angle comes out with minimal finger pressure. Is this normal?
It seams like the bearing seat on one side is worn because the anodization looks all scratched up.
I was hoping to return it to where my wife bought it from, and they haven’t replied. (They only give you 2 weeks to return an item)
I reached out to YoyoFactory to ask the same question above, and they haven’t replied either…
Did I get a faulty Shutter Wide Angle?
Side Note: I tried a couple different C sized bearings. Concave and centre track and neither helped remedy the situation…I basically have a desk ornament and a bummed out wife who wanted to get me something nice for my birthday…
What would you do?
