Have the same yoyo, and had the same idea towards staying responsive. Two thoughts:
I found the DM2 with the slim bearing to be quite responsive indeed. I couldn’t double-up on wraps without it binding (for me it was Lindy Loops), period. You’ll have to pick and choose.
Just for a giggle, I swapped in the unresponsive bearing. I couldn’t bind. Kept flinging my finger around, “dropping the loop into the gap” and following other directions. I just couldn’t get’r going. But I threw (and enjoyed) a few tricks, just manually winding when needed.
Put the responsive bearing back in, and felt a growing sense of discontent every time I couldn’t learn a trick because it would shoot back. Googled for more tutorials and finally someone in a ReThinkYoyo comment pointed out this one:
Suddenly it made sense and I could do it consistently… it’s not “dropping the loop” that gets the bind smooth and consistent (for simple front-style binding), it is pulling up on the throw hand . You will instantly get the correct feel for it, and if you’re playing side-style you can always spin your body 90 degrees and just bind front-style until you can do a reverse/under-mount trapeze.
I haven’t put the slim bearing back in the DM2 since that breakthrough, although I’m going to leave a newly-acquired yoyo set up responsive.
I borrowed the “pull the throw hand up” technique from the video and showed two colleagues how to bind in about 5 seconds each. Try it! You won’t go back except by choice.
