Whipped Silly


#1

Got bored and decided to silicone the Whip. First time. Looks a little messy but binds are tighter than ever on it. Played for about 15 minutes before putting it down so it seems to be holding.


#2

Sounds good. You should have used WHITE, so it could be WHIP’ped Cream!

Anyhow, I’d like to hear how well it holds up after a few days of hard play. I’ve been making a database of my yoyos, mostly so I can track statistics on them for a series of graphics, graphs and charts, showing stuff like size to weight ratios and stuff like that. IN there, I am also tracking stuff such as “compatible with flowable silicone”, bearing sizes and response system/replacements. Sort of a one-stop reference for yoyos in my inventory.

Should know by the end of the week. I throw this one still along with a couple of others a lot.

There were 3 holes in the ring so I did make sure to pump some down into them before continuing on filling the ring.

Same in my Northstar.


#5

Ha, I thought I was the only nerd who did that. Lol. I got a notebook that I track all the specs, play characteristics etc in, for every throw that I own or have owned. It’s actually came in handy a lot.


#6

Not bad my first silicone job was awful and I don’t think it helped that it was on a SB Hectic with schmoove…


#7

Thanks. Doing the Wifes JK and a Hong Kong Special in the drying stage now. They look a lot better than the whips job.


#8

That’s good. I hear Silicone drys faster in warm humid climates (Which sounds like Florida to me.) so I put mine in the bathroom after taking a shower.


#9

Try using a spoon to clean up a bit after popping the air bubbles, and clean up around the walls before it dries.


#10

Mine hasn’t come in handy yet because I’m not using it for what I intended to use it for, but it just seems like a good thing to keep around. I like at least having the illusion of control and knowledge.


#11

Still holding good so far. Same with 3 others I sili’ed.


#12

I had some flowable in my gensis + for almost a year now and it just ripped out today…that is a great long time to not have to replace that. Granted it has not been my main throw but it does get played alot.
