Protostar response pads.


#1

They came off after about a month of play… what do i do?


(yoyo jake) #2

buy new ones or silicone it


#3

they are 888 (slim pad) size


#4

what is siliconing?


#5

Putting flowable or gasket maker silicone in the yoyo for response. There is a guide stickied in the modding section for it, as well as many many topics on siliconing and, well, the question you asked.


#6

I´ve had my protostar sinces April 2010 and the pads still work. Dont spend money on pads, just silicone the yoyo, its cheaper and silicone last longer.


#7

but is it still unresponsive? just curious.
and the pads totally came off. kinda weird…


#8

Not weird. Normal. It happens.

Completely normal. You can buy new pads at any yoyo store. 888 sized, or you can silicone it yourself.
Google “How to silicone a yoyo”. If the video has bad music, it’s a good tutorial.


#10

lol, but true.


#11

is this what im looking for?


(Mi) #12

If you want. 888 slim pad sized = Protostar.


#13

i want the same ones it came with.


(Ariq) #14

The ones stock is the Cental Bearing Co. Silicon Pads (Thin 888 sized pads)


(Mi) #15

Thats the ones they come with.


#16

i just tried to silicone it… the tube exploded…


#17

You have to cut the tip of the nozzle off. If you have to try very hard to push it out, something is stuck and now letting the silicone out.


#18

little late for that…
