Response Systems used in today's modern Yo's have to work well
considering how wide the string gap has become. Yosters usually
have a favorite system. Most people don't like replaceable stickers,
reason cost. Setting the gap wide on a Yo one needs to consider the
response system. In some cases a sticker maybe added to where
there was none for better response performance. Combining what
amount of oil applied to the bearing and the type of response system
present, tuning a Yo becomes an art.
Material & Tools
Pictured stickers are Duncan & Custom Yo-Yo's
Aka: performance rings, turbo discs, friction
biscuits, speed rings and turbo brake pads.
How to make Stickers
Scissors, exacto knife, hole punch, coins & pen.
First trace a coin the size you need, next
fold in half, cut the half moon shape and unfold.
Placing tape on wax paper makes it easier to
handle. Experiment with different size rings,
sticker width and distance from axle.
