What is your favorite fhz setup?


#1

mine is a single sticker recess with a cleaned bearing and gold spacers.


#2

Single sticker reccess, with widdest spacers, duncan silicone sticker. It’s how they should just be made. they play great responsive, and unresponsive this way.


#3

i agree


#4

I wish they’d make the spacers a little bit wider so you don’t have to do the “one sticker” thing to make them play unresponsive.

Plus, I wish Duncan would get off the friction/silicone sticker mindset and go with a groove to accept flowable silicone. I guess when I pick up a FHZ soon, I’ll go send it to a modder. Wait, doesn’t one of them already offer these as a finished product?

^^ The Modfather does.


#6

i know i would love duncan if they did that i would rather have a better low quality throw than a bad high quality throw


#7

Wider spacers would equal string slipping.
duncan has several yoyos that have silicone grooves.
I would rather everyone else get off the silicone groove kick and go back to stickers.
and yes, you can basicly buy a siliconed fhz just as easy as a stock one.
Also I’m not sure what you are doing but one or two stickers never changed wether I had an unresponsive yoyo or not.
The response is too aggresive with two stickers on that light rim weighted yoyo. Thus I use one.

Right, and in a color I can’t stand right now.

I mean, why can’t Duncan just redo their molds and offer it as a stock product? I don’t want to see folks like ModFather driven out of business, but it’s obvious he’s onto something and Duncan would be foolish to not try to contact him for a license or something.

Oh wait, Duncan’s milking that 5A patent…


#9

takeshi told me duncan has plans to release stock sticker recessed fhzs later this year.


#10

Not real fond of the FH 0 but I made some “beefcake” bearings that give you a 4.8mm gap.
Just put them in and play. Can’t see paying extra to mod one, just buy a better throw.
