    hey guys

    im like beginner to intermediate, and i got a yoyo dash today.

    i realized its too responsive, the tricks like suicide r not possible coz the moment that string loses maximum tension, the yoyo shoots back.

    i saw somewhere, in some online store that it has adjustable gap, but im not sure what that means. i though maybe i can unscrew it a bit to make the gap bigger but i cant,either its tigh or too lose, it would fall apart.

    should i remove 1 silicone response thing?

    whar r your suggestions? i want my yoyo to be almost like my grind machine, which only went up if i bind it.

    Yoyo dash? Im not really sure what that is.

    Try cleaning and adding thin lube to the bearing, and possibly removing a response pad.

    The Yomega Dash gap size can be adjusted by removing the metal spacers and orings that come in the yoyo and replaceing the spacers with the other colored ones in the package. Other than that, clean the bearing and lube it lightly.

    Stop worrying about what yoyo you should be playing, and just play yoyo. (pssst I am not Landon)

    this...

    and if the dash, which i've also not heard of, has a c sized bearin' - and you have 'nother unresponsive yo yo w/ a lrg. bearin...try swappin' 'em. a quick way to see if it's the bearin'.

    otherwise, yeah...take out 1/2 the response. and lastly, try 100% poly string or somethin' similar.

    i cleaned a bearing in paint thinner, held it there 5 minutes.

    nothing has changed,when i try to do something more complicated, that metal yoyo hits me pretty well.

    im not sure what r you talking about, i did not receive spacers or whatever in the package, only extra string.

    The Dash doesn't have any additional spacers, so don't worry about it. You started the right way and cleaned the bearing. The next thing you have to do is change the response system. The dash comes with blue rubber orings. These things are awful and need to be taken out. You're going to want to put flowable silicone in instead. This can be a problem due to the way Yomega makes their spacers. Because of how it sits on the yo-yo, the area under the spacer needs to be filled with silicone also, and this makes it hard to apply silicone without fixing the spacer in place. What you're going to want to do is bring the yo-yo into a hardware store and find a screw that will fit into each half like the axle does. Your also going to want to get a matching nut for each screw, as well as a few washers for each half. assemble it like this: washers, nut, screw. When you do this, the spacer should be held i place very securely. Now fill the response area with silicone. Since it's such a big area, it will take awhile to dry, at least 10 hours. Afterwards clean up the yo-yo and it should be good. I did this to my dash and it plays like a dream.

    well thats a big drastic...

    i have to point out that, coz im croatia (where people dont know what yo yo is and there is not 1 store for it), its a problem form me to do such things. simple thing like thick lubricant is something im gonna have to order from uk, and pay shipment 3-4 pounds for it..

    so im a big angry coz of this. cant believe the thing i need to do to make my yoyo at least a bit un-responsive. its ridiculous.

    and i dont understand why they use term "adjustable gap".. coz its not adjustable.

    please give me more advice, any is welcome.

    is there some other ressponse sistem i can use instead of this one or will i just have to wait for this one to wear out. or can i do something, trim it down and such

    thanks,

    Honestly, it's not drastic. You just need to replace the rubber with silicone. I'm not from Croatia, but I assume that you can get screws, nuts, and washers at a local hardware store. As far as silicone, if you cant find it at a hardware or automotive store, I'm sure at least one UK yo-yo store sells it. If you can wait till next week, I can post a few pictures of what you need to do.

    if you don't like the yoyo than sell it. My neighbor that moved had a yomega maveric and that was responsive. I have a hotshot that i got a while back and when i bought it it was comletely responsive (pretty much all yomega's are) it took me about a month to get unresponsive. it is difficult to get a yomega yoyo unresponsive but it is possible

    You are throwing your suicides wrong, I have been landing them on my fixed axle no jive all day. A responsive bearing and tight gap shouldn't stop you from doing suicides all day long. In fact it should make the loop nice and huge.
    I don't have any tips on how to set up your yoyo, but I am here to tell you that suicides should be a trick you can do on any yoyo made that can sleep at all.

    I have the Maverick, the Dash's slightly smaller brother but uses the same response system. All I did was a cleaning on the bearing and it was about 90% unresponsive that day when I got mine. After a couple weeks, the dreaded mold marks (that I didn't see affecting me) were worn off. So now, my Maverick is pretty unresponsive, depending on string tension and condition... I found a fuzzy string feels more randomly grabby than a brand new slick poly string. Hope this helps.
    Main Yo-yo lineup:
    Duncan Raptor (Rawr!), RecRev No. 9, Yomega Maverick, Metal Drifter, Popstar, and Lyn Fury

    i would imagine a poly string to be less responsive, they're thinner and not grabby at all.

    I dont know why you think that the Dash has no extra spacers.... Cause the one I bought did...

    The response is fine. Did you take the shields off when you soaked it?

    Also it is not a C sized bearing, I found this out pretty quick. Its a slightly different size, which was stupid of Yomega, cause the bearing size is very odd, and it causes problems if the bearing craps out. They probably did that so they could be the only ones selling replacements.

    Stop worrying about what yoyo you should be playing, and just play yoyo. (pssst I am not Landon)
