What is your favourite bearing?


#1

I dont want sizes but in your personal preference whats your favourite bearing?

Mine are the Ceramic konkave and im ordering a few mercury bearings to see how they play.


#2

As long as it’s a flat bearing in good condition, I’m happy. Gimmick bearings are overhyped, redundant with modern designs, and a waste of money.


#3

I didn’t play with any other bearings except for standard YYJ or YYF bearings, such as in the Legacy or Dv888, but my 888x came with a free center trac bearing so I’m obviously using that one and I don’t see any real negativities to the center trac bearings, some people say they make the loops for suicides smaller, but Dave Geigle a german yoyoer who set up a record for the most suicides in a row or something said he doesn’t think that’s true and that he used center trac bearings for his record


#4

I would say a Terrapin X Bearing


#5

10 balls


#6

Well give yourself some time. You will eventually see that the konkave or the centertrac bearings actually bunch up the string. As for the suicide thing, No the bearing’s shape will have absolutely nothing to do with loop size. That is in the response. Not the bearing. Unless the bearing is just a little responsive then it will open the loop bigger.


#7

I havnt heard of those what website are they on??

Also i forgot to mention as well as mercury bearings im gonna try 10 ball one drop ball bearings


#8

#19

the bearings in DTI and 3YO3 yoyos
they spin FOREVER


(JonasK) #20

The bearings that come in the yoyos I buy.

The only bearing I’ve actually wanted to replace was the one that came in my Pocket Change, but then I realized it was easier to just let the yoyo sit there and collect dust.
