Maybe im gonna get over my head here, but this is a tiny point that has been poping up in my head recently. Now i dont think konkave bearings have ever truly had a place. Just my THOUGHTS on KKs. If you have a very special place for one reason or another then by all means EXPRESS THAT REASON. I would love for you to tell me all that you adore about a KK. Yeah i had a KK once, paid nearly 30 after shipping and it crapped out on me in like a month, meanwhile all of my YYf SPPY CLYW spec bearings not only outperform the one and only KK I had, but have a greater overall feel. but lets face it who likes KK? Now it seems to me, that these are nothing more than a gimmick. Is that harsh? I dont mean or want it to be, I just truly think that. Becasue as a novice at some point you become just about if not obsessed with centering string in your yoyo. I dont think i have to make a point that people a couple years into it are still worried about that.
Now like i said if you love konkaves be all means tell me what you love and i will gladly consider your reasoning. Some would tell me not to base the outcome of my opinion off of one specific model of said specific product and i understand this idea. But when you pay near 30 buckaroos for something that not only is supplied when buying any modern throw, but is way more than you will ever need. does it not just make sense to say “hey, i really dont need that”. Plus i think it creates a mind set of centering your string, your string has to be perfect, your yoyo has to be perfect, tricks gotta be perfect! all this hype over things that take away from yoyoing.
So i guess in a nutshell heres what im saying and asking.
Does anyone feel as if KKs are gimmicks.
If not why?
Can anyone agree that they know they will never wake another day and say hmm i need a KK for this trick.
Do you agree that it creates this centering mind set that all these new comers latch to and obsess over and in turn makes people step away from yoyoing, all because they bought a 25$ bearing that was said to help. Not saying thats the only reason but its a big one in my eyes.
i could keep going but you guys get the point so ill let your minds speak.
