sorry…two threads right after registering. I’m “that guy” today. I’m new to the yoyo world.
I’ve got the Dark Magic 2 and with the responsive bearing if I get a pretty good sleeper going I can keep it down maybe 60 seconds, which is amazing compared to what I had before but I know it should probably be a lot longer. I’ve got the original string on it at the moment. I lubed the bearing and tried a new string that came with my Luminator advanced kit but it seemed like it was too thick and the sleep time diminished even more so I went back to the original. I try to do Brain Scrambler and maybe 1 in 10 tries can I even get one forward swing then reverse out of it and the yoyo actually have enough momentum to return to my hand.
Is there a different string I need?
I saw mention on the internet somewhere about cleaning the bearing. Should I do that?
Do I just suck at throwing a decent sleeper?
Is there anything else I need to do optimize this thing?
