Don’t have any yoyo lube laying around, try this…
- Gun lube, fishing reel lube, instrument oil, 3-in-1 all work fine if you don’t have any yoyo lube.
- YYJ thin lube will not make it more responsive. YYJ thick or yomega brain lube will.
- fishing reel and gun lube tend to be more like YYJ thin in how they work.
Note that you can use YYJ thick or yomega brain lube and still have an unresponsive yoyo if done correctly.
You can get the same thing as yomega brain lube at Radio Shack or the hardware store: It’s a synthetic, teflon based lube Made by Synco, sold under the Radio Shack Label. Sold under their own label it’s known as Synco Super Lube. Yomega sells the same product under their own label.
