Frequently asked questions


Wooden yoyos are not like metal, they will have some vibe due to the natural state of wood. Generally, the density of wood varies throughout the piece. This essentially means the weight of the wood could be heavier in the right side than the left, which would create a vibe. Our responsive yoyos will always have a slight vibe, but we would never sell anything that is unplayable. The unresponsive yoyos will also have a tiny bit of natural wood vibe, but are sent out tuned up. This tuning can go out of whack if you take your yoyo apart for any reason and we do not recommend you do this unless you want to take the time to tune it back. Weather conditions can also have effect on our wooden yoyos, as some wood tends to "move" in different weather conditions.


So you have taken your new unresponsive wooden yoyo apart and now it vibrates harder than a sleazy motel room's bed? No problem, what has happened is you have distributed the weight differently within the two halves, so give the halves a slight twist, and throw it, repeat this until your yoyo is back to the natural wood vibe that it had when you first threw it.


Our responsive yoyos use a very unique response system which gives it a snappy return. When you first put a string on your yoyo it might feel a bit too slippery, here a few things you can do. Throw it a few more times and let the string break in a bit more. Rub a little bit of our Blood Stick on the string, Inside the loop that is touching the axle. You can also use the double wrap technique, where you wrap the axle two times, this will probably decrease your spin time and make your yoyo very responsive. Our Unresposive yoyos have a silicone response pad, if you need to replace this simply pick up a tube of "FLOWABLE SILICONE" find a level surface and carfully squeeze some in. (after you have already removed the old silicone) If you need further help you can search " how to do sili respose pads" on youtube.
