Ok so i got crazy tired of the “hollow” sound in the die nasty so i looked all over to see if the caps were removable. Every post and topic i saw said “dont do it” or “it breaks the yoyo”. Evidently I have a bit better luck? This ended up lightening the yoyo a bit and got rid of the hollow sound. Now i can attempt to find something to give it a little more rim weight.
Edit: I weighed the caps in at about 14g total so the yoyo dropped from its 68.6 to 54.6 or so, its not a very good scale so i might be off by about a gram. Oddly enough this barely affected play.
In order to do this i just took both halves apart and used my YYF tool to screw the axle INTO the cap side, and kept screwing till the pressure forced the cap to pop. I only had a cm or so left on the visible part of the axle when it finally gave out. afterwards just remove the axle from the nut and repeat on the opposite side.
I found trying to use the axle and 2 nuts got annoying so i replaced the axle and one of the nuts with a regular hex bolt from one of my duncans.
