I think this is the wrong forum-section for your question - you should ask the moderators to move your thread.
Concerning your question:
the DM2 and the DV888 are very different, so it’s difficult to make a recommendation for both. I have equipped my DV888 with a concave bearing from Dif-e-yo, in order to get longer spin times and faster and more stable rotation.
For the DM2 a 10-ball bearing from Magic Yoyo could be a good solution (all Magic Yoyos I know are extremely smooth and silent).
These are the best?
Honestly there is no “best” bearing. A good value is the One Drop 10 ball bearing will make it smooth and quiet for not that much. If you want a konkave go for the dif e yo. Those are just the best values here. But that’s just for buying a bearing.
The best idea is to try to clean your bearing. Take your shields off I the bearing. Then put acetone, mineral spirits, or lighter fluid in a glass jar. Drop the bearing in and spin it around a little bit. After like 2 minutes take it and blow through it till it dry. Then put a tiny drop of lube in. After that put it in the yoyo and break it in.
Should I replace the bearings on my dv888 and dm2???
Both Bearings, the Dif-e-yo, as well as the one from Magic Yoyo are concave bearings.
I prefer this kind of bearing, because the string is centered by the concave shape, which makes it easier for a beginner (like me ;)) to throw a good sleeper.
The Dif-e-yo is finally an ABEC7-bearing. The bearing from Magic Yoyo might reach only ABEC5-quality (which doesn’t make a big difference in real life), but it is a stainless 10-ball bearing, which also runs silent and smooth and has a better price.
I think the DV888 plays a lot better with a concave bearing. My DM2 has the original bearing and it plays great - I wouldn’t change it, if it runs Without problems.
ok first thing you should do is clean your bearing. As I mentioned in my first post. If you like them after that your ok. Only after that of their still responsive you should buy a new one. I recommend the One Drop ten ball and the dif e yo konkave it just depends on what you want
You could try a really good one…
If you wish.
I’m always interested in new products too - could you please give some comparative information (maybe a review Dif-e-yo vs. Terrapin).
As far as I can see in the product description on ebay, the Terrapin bearings are rated as ABEC5. In the british Euro-Yo online store I’ve found the information, that the Dif-e-yos are ABEC7-bearings.
The product description of the Terrapin bearings on ebay isn’t really informative. Therfore some additional information would be great.
Thanks in advance
I have Terrapin X Wing Cut 8-ball Steel bearings in my 4 DM2’s, and I like how it performs.
My dv888 is fine stock, no need to change what’s working good for me.
I would suggest buying some bearings to experiment with. All that matters is you find out what you like best. What WE like best is irrelevant.
