So today i switched the bearing in the sage to the unresponsive center track bearing it came with.
I have managed to get a few binds in and have a ways to learn of course, but it doesnt feel like I am getting the torque I need usually to get it to wind back up. That said, I figured THAT is more of user error and practice.
The technical issue that comes into play is that even when I do a straight toss, the yoyo now does not have a smooth spin to it. It is more of a very fast yet mild wobble. Could my bearing need cleaning, lube? I have tried re-inserting it but I was hoping maybe a technical guru would know a possible reason to the problem
