Responsive becomes unresponsive. why?

I just today received a replay pro,switched bearing to a half spec C in it. Awesome responsiveness at first, but now just a few hours after play at times it’s unresponsive. New string,new pads,fully tightened. I hate tugging on it trying to get it to respond then unexpectedly its snaps back to my hand and stubs my finger or hits a knuckle. Any ideas? Thank you

try a double knot

Lube the bearing. Bearing lube condition is responsible for 90-95% of response.

Could u tell me the correct times to lube and clean my bearings? All I have is thick lube.

When it starts to become unresponsive, lube the bearing.

Thick is good for what you want to do.

Yep, did the trick thanks. Now when is nessasary to clean. Bearing? What’s recommended?

If it becomes too responsive, or won’t sleep long, or feels gritty, it’s time to clean it.
