You’re using the One Drop thin pads on a yoyo designed for dif pads? The dif pads are much wider than the one drop thins though aren’t they? Like snow tire wide…I suppose you could always go with silicone too.
How do you feel about the D sized bearing? Do you feel that it plays significantly different than a C size?
One thing I notice with my Addict is that the binds feel sort of “slow” for lack of a better term. Could be the pads, but it feels like the binds slip a little more than with most of my other more modern yoyos.
