That’s what I figured. Thanks.
Yeah. Whatever sized bearing (or wooden axle) you use, it’s vital the gap matches it. C bearings are really not suitable for strict 0A setups because it is impossible to tune the gap to suit them for responsive tricks. Sure you can do responsive tricks on them, but they behave weirdly. Moons are odd, they loop upward and slip a lot on the end of a throw.They will only ever be suitable for hybrid responsive/unresponsive setups (unless you make the diameter of the yoyo huge).
A bearings still present issues in my opinion.
The diameter is still too large and the gap can’t be tuned well enough without either causing a minor slip/thud at the end of a throw, or it being too wide for perfect Moons. I don’t think it’s bad, just not quite there.
Cramming bearings with lube only goes so far, and I think it’s a sign of a fairly weak overall responsive setup. Maybe a bit of light lube is fine, though .
