In some ways, sticky paint and big bevels help improve and evolve the game by a fair amount. I always love saying this - the yoyo industry frowned upon the use of ball bearings, when they were introduced way back. But this small piece, has been really crucial to trick innovation, like as though ball bearings are the intended evolution of yoyos! Of course, like everything else, moderation is essential. Too much of something may not be good, and the vice versa may be true as well. Pick a style that suits you, be content, and enjoy the game for what it is.
