Weight ring rattle
« on: September 05, 2016, 06:13:29 PM »

I'm in the process of modding a Trompo Grande the I recently received from Science of Spin/YoYoPlay. It has the brass modified diabolo tip. My problem is that the weight ring rattles. I can press fit the crown so that I don't see any gap between the crown and the body anywhere and I can hear the smallest rattle, but once the top is dropped even from a small height, the ring will start to rattle again.

Any suggestions? Thanks, rick

One of mine did that too.  The Fast solution is to drop the top crown down.  After you get tired of doing that over and over, open up the top. Pull the gap in the weight ring open a bit.  About 1/32" or 1 mm (or less) is all that is needed.

If it spins and it is balanced... let sleeping weight rings lay.
