Bearing Help
« on: September 19, 2012, 03:43:17 AM »
Hi Guys,

I am fairly new to yoyo'ing although I do have tricks like cold fusion, Matrix, Gyroscopic flop down. I have just bought a YYJ Trinity to go up to the next level (from a Speeder(1)) and was wondering what the best C sized bearing for this yoyo would be? I like to keep a spare just in case so was hoping someone could put some insight into which i should be looking to pick up.

Any relevant help is appreciated!

It comes down to preference, really.
They all work great, as far as I can tell.
Lot's of folks seem to really like the 10-ball bearings that One Drop uses.
Terrapin is another that folks like a lot.

I generally use whatever came with the yo, cleaned & lightly lubed.
I have yet to have a bearing fail in a yo-yo, but that's just my experience.

Agreed. For what you need to do, a regular ol' flat bearing (cleaned and lightly lubed) will do just fine. OneDrop 10-balls tend to be a bit quieter and not rattle as much, but they're also more expensive. The only times I've had bearings fail are when I was tinkering around with them.

"Hmm... you mean this trick? (does it)"
"Yeah, that one! That's so co-"
"Nope, I can't. Sorry."
