I really don't understand this statement. I know what you're saying but I don't see that the hex end comes up the same way all the time. In my experience the hex end of the axle can really end up up or down depending on what half it screws into a bit tighter.
Yes you are correct the axle can turn up in both directions. No big deal when it is loose but when it is tight and you have to use a tool you take the chance of ruining the threads. That's why I had to use the double nut method.

I really don't understand this statement. I know what you're saying but I don't see that the hex end comes up the same way all the time. In my experience the hex end of the axle can really end up up (exposed) or down depending on what half it screws into a bit tighter. If you consistently have the hex end exposed when you take your yoyos apart I'd say you're very lucky.

it is not always the case, often the fact that the axis remains screwed onto a shell rather than the other depends on the thread of the shell itself. so if you care to screw the axis of this shell, the hexagon side you will find free ... at least in my experience ...

OK, I fully understand that, I just don't see where it is relevant in a review comment. It's not really a quality issue.

The reasoning is this. As I said in my original statement that after removal of the stuck axle I noticed that the threads on the hex end of the axle were damaged. That's why it was stuck. These things are very revalant to quality! More than likely this is what happened. During the assembly process who ever took a random axle did not inspect it and screwed it in the yoyo non hex side down. The same way I always do. Because the damage was on the hex side the axle screwed in with no problem. Next the bearing was installed, the the two halves were screwed together. Because of the rough hex end and tight bearing seat the false impression of the two halves being tight were given to the assembler. These are all things someone with a brand new yoyo that had never been thrown does not want to see. It was a simple mistake, but could have been avoided by inspecting the axle. So yes it is a quality issue. Not in the yoyo, but an assembly issue. Quality of a finished product involves all aspects, not just machining and anodizing.
