what kind of response pad do you use and which ones are the best ones?


#1

Im trying to get some response pad that dont wear out quickly so i firgured that you guys can tell me what kinds of response pads should i get? Im currently using yoyofactory blue response pads.


#2

I use CLYW snow pads now
I also use monkey snot flowable silicone
it depends what size pads yu need for the yo


#3

depends on the yoyo.
you won’t really be able to just go with one response pad if you have several brands of yoyo.


#4

IrPads, IrPads in every throw :slight_smile:


#5

I prefer thick hat pads. You get good binds with no snag during horizontal play.


#6

Agreed. IrPads or flowable silicone in everything.

I’m all about quality performance at minimum expense… For this, flowable silicon cannot be beat.


#8

Whenever I need to replace the response on any of my yoyos I use monkey snot silicon
Its much harder than other silicons and lasts fir a very long time!
(Flowable also lets you tailor the response for each yoyo)


#9

I frikkin love monkey snot
I put it in the most yos that don’t take
snow tires ;D

Plain old flowable silicon. It’s cheap and works like a dream.


#11

how is monkey snot compared to just regular flowable silicone??


#12

RTV of the red variety when time is no issue. Otherwise whatever fits will work in a pinch. There is something special on an older throw with half Hat Pad and half Dif pad though.


#13

Great answers here. I am new to throwing, and haven’t had to replace my response pads yet. I’ll definitely pick up some monkey snot with my next order.


#14

Make sure yu get an extra
takes some practice to get the
silicone to be nice n even
I mastered it in my 5 try :slight_smile:


#15

Snow tires are my favorite.


#16

The response is about as good as flowable. I’d say monkey snot is a little softer, and it doesnt last quite as long as flowable

Incidentally, here’s a link for how to use flowable silicon. I don’t bother with the syringe, and I’ve had great luck.
