How exactly did you clean your bearing, MR.Dark Magic? Sometimes if a bearing is not cleaned properly that can make it more responsive.

Hey.... for the paper cleaning yoyo bearing thing, I don't understand... is the paper supposed to be inserted between the balls, and then rolls with them? Or does the ball roll over the paper? Or??? Cuz when I try, the paper's always getting jammed....
