The standard in metal-ring yo-yos gets updated, with a better response system and your option of bearings.
This is Yo-Yo Master Andre Boulay's new signature model. His original Dark Magic established itself as a classic, being used for several champsionship performances over the years. Now, with YoYoJam's Solid Spin Axle system and silicone response pads, the classic is reborn as Dark Magic 2. It comes loaded with a thin bearing for more responsive play. With a wide spectrum of tricks possible, this is a great yo-yo, especially for those transitioning from beginner to intermediate and advanced tricks.
The larger body makes tricks much easier to learn. Another bonus is that this yo-yo comes with an extra bearing, a large size one to give you the option of making your Dark Magic 2 non-responsive, requiring a bind to return the yo-yo. This is another reason why it's great for the developing player, great for those just starting to learn binding techniques. Of course, the great feeling of the original Dark Magic hasn't been lost on the new model, but with the upgrade from half-star to silicone response system has given a big improvement to both smoothness and response and first timers and old Dark Magic fans alike are sure to notice.
Comes with: Speed Bearing (no-oil bearing)

It allows really good play time it also comes with two bearings. The only problem is that if you dent it it gets really wobbly. GET IT.
"Though I don't have a huge collection of throws the Dark Magic II is one that always surprises me with its play-ability when I pick it back up after some time away. It flows well and the organic shape feels nice. It is more of a laid-back throw though it can be speedier than expected. Though it is a plastic and metal hybrid the metal rings absorb shock much better than a pure plastic yoyo (or even other hybrids like the Protostar). If it hits my hand, arm, or body it keeps on going. It can even handle short finger grinds.
Plus it is priced well as an entry level throw for intermediate to advanced play."
