Responsive Rally


#1

So, I burned through the string that came on my Rally, which seemed like a thin string. Then I put on a YYSL Type X, as well as a Toxic poly, and the yoyo plays VERY responsive with both of them. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?


#2

Did it play unresponsive with the stock string? If not, clean the bearing. The bearing may be dirty.


#3

The bearing could just be breaking in or you got a faulty bearing or it’s dirty


#4

Yes it was fine out of the box. It’s weird, it just doesn’t feel like a bearing issue but I’m going to swap it anyway I think.


#5

It’s not a faulty bearing if it worked when you got it

It could need to be cleaned or oiled but it’s still on the user since they’ve obviously been using it


#6

The stock bearing is crap, replace it.


#7

I took the stock string, took it off the yoyo and shoved it back in the box. If I ever sell it, the next owner can get the Rally, box and original string. But, I ain’t selling it because I’m too busy enjoying my Rally with a YYSL Type X String on it and it is DEAD unresponsive!

Check your bearing. It may be breaking in, or bad. Clean it and/or swap it and see if it’s the bearing.

Bearings can initially be fine, and then a defect takes a while to reveal itself. It happens in a lot of stuff.

I mostly discover this problem with electrolytic capacitors not meeting their hour ratings. But, capacitors, like bearings, tend to be inexpensive. I repaired a $4500 amp with 2 $5 capacitors and then did an event with them. However, in this case, I’d been using the stuff for quite some time.

Mine had a bad bearing, but it was responsive out of the box. Threw in a trifecta bearing and it’s great now

Yeah it seems like alot of people have been having problems with the OD 8Ball
