No response?


#1

My crucial yoyo just had its response pads get all sticky and pull out the bearing seat thing crucial has (sorry I forgot the name) so i just took them out. Will this be fine?


#2

Mostly.

You’ll want to replace the pads or contact YYE to find a suitable replacement pad. I think(and I could be wrong) that the place for the response pads is too shallow to use flowable silicone.

So, other than you’ll have a tough time returning the yoyo back to you, it should be otherwise fine. Response pads/systems are meant to wear down and be replaced.


#3

yeah i dont think they can take flowable silicone


#4

I think it take Crucial Ghost Pads. BTW, the response is called SPR. :slight_smile:


#5

It a spacer not response system, but I know what you meant.


#6

The only problem is I cannot find those in stock anywhere!


#7

Contact yoyoexpert, he will be able to tell what other pads will fit. No wait, I checked that other site and they have them in stock.


#8

So tell us how does it work w/o a response system?

Most yoyos need the response system to impart spin to the body when thrown. Without response, the yoyo will literally fall down the string w/o spinning.

You can try Black Kentaro Friction Seats (Kimu Pads) ive never used them but i have read other people who have replaced their g5+ with ghost pads with them so i think they would work


#10

Yeah it kinda just rolls off the string. It is not very functional.


#11

You can fill the SPR in with silicone.

You need the SPR in the yoyo because it also acts as a bearing seat. Not to mention a yoyo will not bind without some sort of response system…the SPR IS the response system.!

But this forum is YYE’s forum and it’s a respect to Andre.


#13

I realize that. I’m not trying to be disrespectful or take away business from Andre’s storefront. To be honest I prefer this store (even in light of recent events that affected few of us) to any other.

I’ve edited my previous post…
