Snagging...


#1

My SB YYF Hectic is snagging a lot and I’m not sure why I think that it is the 100% cotton string I have… Is this the issue or is it something else?


(DOGS) #2

Small bearing yoyos tend to be a bit more snaggy


#3

Exactly.
Is the string thick?
It could also be the response if it is flush.


#4

Cotton has always been more snaggy than poly for me. That is why most use it for loopers. Get you some good 100% poly and try that.


#5

yah, or maybe there is something in the bearing seat or the bearing is dirty
If it is dirty then I suggest you to clean it.


#6

Thank you for the help I will think about getting some new string soon but I’m low on cash so I don’t know when…


#7

You can always get a .25$ spool of poly and make your own string like some people do.


#8

I will look in to it thanks

I made my first successful string by hand with polyester thread. It did seem to snag less it only snagged when I got a lot of string in the gap. Now I just need to get good at making them.


#10

Do you have a small bearing Hectic or large bearing? Again, just like another person said earlier, small bearings tend to snag more then large bearings. That is one of the reasons why I like large bearings better.


#11

I have a small bearing thats what SB means… So why are small bearings more snaggy?


#12

Because the string is nearer to the response.

The small bearings are smaller than large bearings (duh?). Therefore, the gap is slimmer and there’s less space for the string layers.
