What’s Your Setup? is a new feature for YoYoNews where we ask your favorite players about what they’re throwing with. Today we catch up with Keiran Cooper – sponsored player for SF YoYos, design nerd, and all-around nice guy.
What are you throwing?
I’ve been using a modified version of the Cadence ES recently. I wanted to mess around with the functional benefits of laser engraving to see if we could create a different weight distribution without having to change the design itself. It worked, and the yo-yo plays great.
What response are you using?
I don’t really have a preference in response pads. In 2017, I bought a couple hundred of these pink pads with a gift certificate I won. They seem to do the job.
What bearing are you using?
I don’t really use any specific bearings. I have an assorted collection of concave, CT, and flat bearings that I rotate through. When a bearing of mine dies, I just throw in whatever bearing spins well enough. I also for whatever reason tend to not perform any maintenance on my bearings beyond using a little bit of YYJ thin lube here and there.
What string are you using?
I’m currently rotating between Zipline’s KC24 and PH22 blends. Both differ in terms of thread count but feel pretty similar in use. Each string lasts me up to three days of heavy use and a week of casual use.
