Hi, I have shutter wide angle new yoyo. Got it 2 weeks ago. Today I was just normally throwing it and after one throw it turned really loud so I checked bearing but it was looking just fine and everything else too. Later the sound seemed gone but the yoyo feels slower and weaker no matter how hard I throw it. My max bind time after throwing is like 40 seconds and so yoyo max sleeping time about 1:40 minutes, but I could do like 2:30. Yoyo also slowdowns really fast. I don’t know what to do so anyone can help? Thanks
Sounds like your bearing needs some cleaning. YYE has an entire section on bearings. Check this thread out. Useful modification & maintenance guides – clean, repair, tune, fix yoyos - Yo-Yo Mods and Maintenance - YoYoExpert Forums
Okay, thank you. I just wonder how is it dirt if it’s new.
Dirt can get into bearings. It could be a piece of hair, human or pets, dust, even string fuzz. Who knows, it just happens. Besides cleaning your bearing is a skill you will need to learn sooner or later, make it sooner!
Actually, I got my Shutter to sleep for 7 hours.
I went to bed at 2am last night.
I put the Shutter under my pillow.
I woke up at exactly 9am.
It had not moved one inch from where I put it.
I would conclude it slept exactly the same amount of time as me…… 7 hours.
That’s the only reasonable way to measure yoyo sleep time!
Alright thanks. I tried to take bearing out with multitool but I can’t move it at all. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong tho.
Stick it in the freezer for 25 minutes. It’ll usually loosen it up.
You can also use pliers but do be very careful with them.
