Today from a bit of intense learning of new tricks (which included having to unscrew the ProtoStar many times to untie some nasty knots), I found out that the bearing lodged into the side of one part of the yo-yos came loose. It is currently “stuck” on the center trac bearing and not in the side as it previously was.
The bearing’s kind of stuck on top of the center trac bearing. I applied a little bit of force just to check it out and it’s stuck on there pretty tightly.
It used to be here. There are streak marks inside where it used to be … I’m guessing it was glue or some sort of adhesive?
I’m unsure of what to do next. I’m just kind of worried about how the ProtoStar will function this way. This is my first unresponsive yo-yo.
As of right now, my ProtoStar is working just fine. The only difference is the bearing attached to the center trac when I unscrew it and the need for a few more rotations to screw in both bearings.
Should I just leave it like this? Will it affect my performance in any way?
Also, is this bearing used for adjusting the gap? How can you do this?
Thanks in advance!
Sorry for any noobiness.
