Join the Resistance with Airetic Resistance response pads! A while back we set out to find a material for response pads that was a perfect complement to our nylon strings. After much testing of many different materials we settled on what we love to use, and we are confident that you will too! As it turns out the particular rubber compound we settled on workes great with poly and blended strings as well. These are fantastic all arounders.
We make these right here in house, in a couple of different sizes and plan to keep adding sizes as we can. Btw, in case you are wondering, Resistance pads are clear, they just have a tan paper backing! You'll see your yoyo's colorway through them.
If you have a favorite size that we don't carry, please reach out to us and we will try to work with you to see if we can start making and carrying those as well. We would really like to grow this lineup!
The 19mm Slim pad has become the closest thing to an "industry standard" size. It is the most common size and fits most modern yoyos.
These pads are designed to fit OneDrop yoyos that use their Flow Groove response pads. They are the same inside and outside diameter, however, they are just a little bit thinner. We like having a slightly recessed response in the OneDrop yoyos, especially when paired with our Standard thickness strings. That said, if you are the kind of players that likes your OD throws just a touch on the slipperier side, these work great with or Slims strings too!
