Responsive becomes unresponsive. why?


#1

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.


#4

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


#5

When it starts to become unresponsive, lube the bearing.


#6

Thick is good for what you want to do.


#7

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


#8

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