v2/Pro: Shinwoo Reversible Response Pads (Large Slim)
The second version of the Phantom, which was released in 2010, featured Shinwoo's new reversible response pads, which has a flat texture on one side and a starburst texture on the other, so that they could be flipped to the user's personal preference. Not only that, but the yo-yo also comes with RSS spacers for an adjustable string gap width. All the potential of the original Phantom, but with more adjustability than ever.
Also released was the Phantom Pro, which is a bit larger in diameter, but with an even heavier body, along with a dry C-bearing, making for an advanced bind-response yo-yo. Plus, there are very small O-rings underneath the spacers, so that the string gap width could be adjusted by simply twisting the body halves.
In 2011, Shinwoo released a light-up version of the Phantom, known as the Fire Phantom.
