One Drop 54 responsive please help


#1

Just got the one drop 54 and it is responsive can anyone recommend any pads that can fix this

Patience.

Just play it more. Long sleepers are good. I think some people like to do gyro flops(I can’t do those yet), but you need to break in the bearing. Well, that and break in the response pads too.

I got a mint Relic Code 1 from BST, and I’m still breaking in the bearing, but that’s because I don’t throw it much because I don’t want to ding it up, even playing over carpet.

Pretty much every other yoyo I’ve bought I’ve had to do the same thing: break in the bearing and response pad. It takes some time. Look at it as an excuse to throw more. That can’t be a bad thing now, can it?

Yea I think I just need to throw it more. Thanks

Just keep playing with it til it breaks in a little and if its still responsive after a few hours, clean the bearing and don’t lube it. Should be dead unresponsive then. Both my 54s came completely unresponsive. It could be that they just put a little too much lube in that particular bearing in the shop.

After I Silicone my throws and if they tend to be grabby, I take some denim jeans and rub it on the response for about 30 secs on each side and it makes it less responsive. Or, like stated patience and more throwing.
