Problem with Terrapin Bearing


#1

So, on the website itsays that if you just roll a yo-yo with this bearing in it off of your hand, it will spin for 3.5 minutes. When I tried I got about 3.5 seconds. Do I need to lube it or remove the shields or something? Please reply.
Thank you!

I can get at least 25-30 seconds on a drop. I can get that on a flick too.

To get those 2.5 minute spins, it takes using similar string twisting technique like they use in the sleeper contests. It’s a skill I don’t have. It’s more in my best interest to THROW the yoyo and play it and enjoy the bearing doing what it does.
