Regular bearing vs small bearing


#1

What is the difference


#2

Regular is bigger than small sized bearings.

What is your main problem? Choosing a yoyo with a small bearing? Replacing a bearing?

Some people tend to dis-like small bearing yoyo’s because they have a “feel” of responsivness but any yoyo can be unresponsive. The small bearing may also be thinner, as it may become responsive.

I like large bearings more, because they just don’t ten to grip more (for me), and they don’t sang as much (for me).

Well I knew there was a size difference but I was wondering if they played differently or something


#4

You can kinda imagine or feel the difference, but if you’re not too picky, it wont affect your play.


#5

often times, they are easier to bind, and REPORTEDLY spin longer. this may not be true


#6

I don’t think it will spin longer , but it is easier to bind, why don’t you try buying cheap yoyos that has small bearing like duncan metal drifter or free hand zero


#7

It’ll spin longer if your only doing a sleeper, for tricks no. It’ll spin longer for a sleeper because there are more wraps around the bearing meaning a longer spin time, but for string tricks they wont sleep longer.
