:wink:


#3

i put normal flat knowing that without that being a choice, you wouldn’t vote. lol


#4

Maybe he meant it was just a persons preferences… :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

if i got to choose, it would be a crucial bearing. i won’t go out of the way to get one though. stock bearing ftw.


#6

Whatever came in the yoyo I often find is the best bearing. Maybe after a cleaning.

Other than that, I don’t have time to play the “Right bearing in the right throw” game these days.


#7

Really wanna try a gold plated one!!

It used to always be the ten ball for me. But lately I have been favoring the Centertracs in most of my throws. The Ten ball can just be too finicky sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great bearing, it’s smooth and quiet, (usually) and very very smooth when it’s working properly. But lately all my ten balls have been spinning roughly, and squealing. Even though I keep them perfectly clean. It’s just… For lack of a better word Fussy.
I have no such problems with the CT, and it has the added bonus of Centering the string, and takes the Terrapin treatment better.
Maybe I just need to buy some new ten balls.

I just got some Twisted Strings Trifecta bearings. Concaved, grooved, 10 ball. I tend to side with Jayyo and others who know that it’s more about the throw, but damn, I like what I’ve seen so far with these. With the OD 10-ball in my code 2, I barely had enough spin to bind at the end of my paltry matrix-Buddha’s revenge-hipster-Eli hops combo; but with a fresh, lightly lubed Trifecta, my yoyo comes back with a smack! I realize this says something about my throw, but I’ve got a lot to learn still. In the meantime, the trifecta will help–or it’ll be a crutch. We’ll see…

Your forgetting Chico 10 balls, which are actually silent.

Twisted Trifecta Bearing


#12

Typically I love a grooved for learning new tricks and for my regular play a flat or ten ball… BUT… I’ve noticed a slight drag on tricks that require multiple layers of string with a grooved so I’ve switched to center trac instead. They just seem better and are the closest to a flat bearing in that they allow the string to move across the outer race while still providing some centering.


#13

10 ball bearing is winning!


#14

OD 10 ball wins!


#15

twisted trifecta is awesome


#16

mine is still the 10 ball by One Drop. I really am looking forward to trying the new twisted stringz bearing.

UPDATE

i serious just wrote that and then remembered that twisted stringz was giving away a bearing to a few people and switched from my computer to phone to check facebook to see if i won and low and behold i did :slight_smile: looks like the yoyo gods were workin in my favor and now im finally gonna get to try this bearing. super stoked. i will definatly be posting about what i think after a few hours spin time.
