So I recently came into possession of a stargazer v1. which uses thin pads. Unfortunately, thin YYR pads aren’t available anywhere. I looked through the forums, a noticed quite a few people with the same problem. No worries, I have a solution.
What you need:
Thin pads (I use the onedrop .555 pads)
That’s all. All you have to do is stick the pads into the groove, and use the knife to cut the pad into the right shape. You will scratch the response, but that should be a non-issue, as it doesn’t affect the outward appearance of the Yo-Yo. It is unresponsive, but like all pads, require a small break in time.
I’m sure this has been done before. This is just a sharing of my knowledge. Apologies if you have seen this topic before.
