What is the likelihood that, when you buy a new yo-yo, you will switch out the stock bearing in it? Do you find that you do this…
- Sometimes, but only if you don’t like the bearing it comes with;
- Most times, you rarely like the bearing it comes with; or
- Never, you always play it stock.
Personally, I only switch bearings out of BST yo-yos. If I get a crap bearing in a BST yo-yo, I remove it and toss it. Otherwise, in a new yo-yo, I play it stock. In my mind, the yo-yo plays how the maker of the yo-yo intended it to, and I either like it that way, or not. I never have complaints about a bearing as long as it’s not defective. In the poll, please vote for the closest option. The question only applies to new yo-yos.
After you vote, comment if you have thoughts about this, or want to explain and share your reasoning for what you do, as I have done above.
