Like many of you, I got the D10 a week ago. I've only been throwing for a month now, starting with a Velocity and Shutter. I was excited to try something new to compare with the Shutter so I was good with it being a mystery. Anyway, here's my inexperienced thoughts and concerns.
It's loud. The bearing makes quite a bit of noise, even lubed, compared to the 5 other yoyos I have. Normal?
When I hand spin the yoyo to loosen the string it makes a rattling noise.
I took it apart to lube it and found that the axle is loose. I hand tighten it and screw it back together, but it's loose every time I open it up. Is loose axles OK? If not, any way to fix it?
The response pads are sunk in the groove. If you hold half the yoyo flat and look from the side, the pads are lower. I have problems getting it to bind consistently, even with new string. I've used 3 types, including what it came with. It's been that way from day 1. Is that by design?
I admit that I may not be binding in the most effective way possible, I'm a newbie to unresponsive yoyos. Otherwise, I just don't know what is normal and what is not to determine if this is a good throw, a defective yoyo, or if I just need more practice. Any help/advice or clarification is appreciated. Thanks!
