Slightly lubed (to keep it quiet)

Flowable Silicone

And Some nice Big Yoyo Strings protos known as Slix L

If it’s working like it should, why sweat the details?

I can be happy throwing a Classic with a SPEC bearing, or I can be happy throwing an Anglam or TI-5, or anything in between, be it metal, plastic or metal and plastic.

Right now I’m helping test some Twisted strings or is it yoyostringlab? I forget. Next I have another brand of strings to test out.

Never a simple answer out of you :wink:


#10

Nope!

I do find once I get things set up the way I like it, I tend to document it in my database and then leave things along as far as tweaking things.

For example:
With my Burnside, I set it up for a friend with a Terrapin X Dry Play treated Trifecta. I knew he’d like it so I treated my other Trifecta the same way, then shipped it to Florida for him to use it in for his SER performance. He didn’t send the bearings back!! But I told him not to. He send me fresh Trifectas to replace them. I gotta say I really like the performance of the Trifecta in the Burnside. I also like the Trifecta in the TI-5.

I often find most stock configurations are perfect. I do admit I like my Speeder 2 and Meteor better with KKs in them.

For the most part, out of the package with a a fresh string and I’m happy.

I wish I could change up the bearing in my aquarius to some kind of concave or trifecta, the turbofly doesn’t fair well with hard surfaces.
