what's the difference between large and small bearings?


#1

Topic.


#2

Their size is different and as such they play differently. I suggest just trying both out to really understand how each feels on the string.


#3

Large bearings spin longger than smaller bearings


#4

That might be true, to an extend.

However, since small bearings have a smaller diameter (duh) they have more wraps of string around them when they are would up. > more rpm out of your throw

For me, my SB yoyos have plenty of spin time.

I agrree


#6

You seem to be mistaken. The Buddha King 2 which holds the world record for sleep time has a Size A bearing in it.


#7

Yeah, they both have a different feel to them. The small bearing also tends to snag more than the large bearing. I like large bearings better.


#8

small bearings tend to have longer spin times but not longer on string tricks as the large bearing because large bearings have larger gaps

small bearings sleep longer on just a sleeper. if you do tricks that require string wraps, they slow down faster though, that is why most bearings are all c sized.
