plasti-dip/baz pads


#1

anybody using plasti-dip for response?
Seems like it could work good, and baz pads were made with it.
Plus, it comes in lots of colors.
I’m thinking something like monkey snot.


#2

If it’d been done before and has worked, then I suspect if you tried it using the same material in the same fashion, then yes it should work.


#3

Yoyo play has changed, and those pads seem a bit old school. Just wondering. And I am sure I will get around to trying it.

It’ll work in pad response yoyos, not silicone recessed ones.


#5

I did it once in a dv888 about a year ago and they still work


#6

Parts is parts. :wink:


#7

I still have some yoyos that use pads.

Baz pads- miss those days.


#8

chaz pads are the same as baz pads

there was also a large tutorial on how to make them somewhere


#9

I believe the baz pad tutorial is on another board.


#10

I can figure out how to use it, and I think it would be easier to pour directly into the yoyo than make them separatly. I was just looking of feedback on the feeling/response.


#11

I haven’t looked at the baz pad how to in a long time, but I think he flattened them on the backing to achieve some uniformity in thickness. That would be hard to do with a direct pour. I know silicone is done that way but normally you have a deeper recess to work with and in most cases it’s smoothed w/a tool of some sort.

As for feel, I think they pretty much are the same as any other pad, old or new. (parts is parts).

Pouring plasti-dip directly into the groove doesn’t work. The plasti-dip needs to be thinned first using naptha to prevent bubbles and make it an even thickness. Otherwise, when dry, the plasti-dip will be uneven and full of holes.
