Uuuummmm…

Uh… did you ding it?


#3

Chances the smell came from the anodize. When you scratch anodize, it sometimes creates a burnt smell.

the anodizing looks fine i’m gonna wash it and see if smell persist maybe a large string fiber got caught and got grinded since i run all my bearings dry


#6

The anno just has to scratch for it to have a sulfur like smell. Doesn’t have to be a serious ding. Even a good smack with a counterweight can sometimes give off a slight smell.

That, or it was just left near a fire…


#7

Maybe slow it down a bit. :wink:

I’d just keep playing it and see if it feels and plays ok. If need be - a small bit of lube.


#8

if it was the anno would the yoyo have any smoke smell on it?


#9

Sulfur smell is pretty much smoke smell.


#10

You’re yo’ing is too rad. The bearing can’t handle it! :slight_smile:


#11

Who is using gasoline for lube again?

You need a Radder bearing.


#13

lol the smell was pretty strong i wasnt that close it was in a average trapeze region


#14

as others said, most likely ano. If you play 3a with metals, you’ll smell it a lot.

#16

I’ve gotten some smokey smell occasionally.


#17

Sometimes, my bearings will make terrible noises and give off a smell even without the yoyo touching anywhere but my hand and the string. But that might be because i was using an unlubed konkave that is magnetized and had a misaligned cage :stuck_out_tongue:
