So I bought my X-ConVict about a month ago and I really like it. One of the only problems I have with it is that the double O-rings paired with a fairly narrow gap make it only semi-unresponsive. So when I am doing longer tricks the string is constatly rubbing against the rubber and slowing down and when I have 2-3 string segments in the gap it can sometimes shoot back up to my hand (highly annoying). I think that I have played with it enough to break in both the responce and the bearing and I have lubed it with thin lube (havn’t cleaned it yet). So I was thinking of just siliconing it but wasn’t such if the silicone affects plastic or something like that. Also, I is the recess deep enough to hold silicone?
Another thing, I havn’t done silicone so is there anything I need to know about doing it? How to avoid air bubbles? Even application? I found an old syringe that I figured I could use to get the silicone in. Anything else I should know? I was thinking of just shaving the O-rings but I figured I only get one try with that and if I mes up I have to wait and buy new O-rings. With Silicone I can try again if I mess up.
