Removing Bearings on SPYY yoyos.

Hey folks,

I have an Addiction 2 and a Punchline, and both suffer from the same problem. Namely, that I can’t remove the bearings. They are wedged into the yoyos in such a way that I cannot pry them off with my usual multi-tool plyers, nor the plyers I bought yesterday specifically for that purpose. Has anyone else had this problem? And if so, does anyone know a way to get the bearings off?
