Saint Eel


#1

So I just got a brand new ILYY Saint Eel, and it keeps dying at the end of the string. Anyone know why?


#2

How long does is sleep?


#3

I haven’t timed it, but not even close to as long as my not-quite-beat YYF Boss.


#4

And you just got it?


#5

Half an hour ago. So yes, just got it.


#6

I’m not sure. I’ve never had this happen to me. I would probably start by cleaning the bearing.


#7

Is it responsive? Does it bind tight?


#8

Unscrew it and give the bearing a finger flick test. It’s most likely a dirty bearing.

But man, enjoy that thing! St. Eels are awesome!


#9

Thanks all who replied, I think it was just a case of needing to be broken in, because its sleep times are lengthening.


#10

Did you know, that St. Eel stands for Steel, because the yoyo is steel? May seem obvious, but I didn’t known until PatrickCondon told me last year. I figured those crazy Germans thought Eels were saintly or something


#11

Holy cow, I never noticed that…
