Yeti

So i have been playing with my yeti yoyo and it has become responsive when i tug on the string it winds up. i tried pushing in the response pads and don’t know what else to do. i don’t want it to be responsive …:frowning:

Try flicking the bearing with your finger. Does it spin freely? If it makes a gritting noise and doesn’t seem to spin freely, then the problem could be that your ball bearing has debris in it and needs a good cleaning.

Another minor problem it might be is with the string. Sometimes if the string is old and worn out, that will make the yoyo responsive. If you don’t have proper string tension that can also effect the responsiveness of the yoyo.

Gonna be a pain to remove those spacers around the bearing :stuck_out_tongue: I know it’s definitely possible though.

It can be a pain, but if you use the axle It’s fairly easy.

At 2:02 in this video it shows how to do that properly- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ID1i_gica0
