The '''YoYoJam Dark Magic II''' is the sequel to the ever popular [[YoYoJam Dark Magic|Dark Magic]] , the signature yoyo of national yoyo master [[Andre Boulay]] . This second version features a variety of differences from the previous Dark Magic. The first is the shedded rim weight; the previous version weighed in at a whopping 70 grams, and at the request of many members of the yoyo community, [[YoYoJam]] changed the weight to a more comfortable 67 grams. The diameter is slightly smaller, and the width is lightly wider. Some bigger differences between the two versions is that this second version features YoYoJam's new Solid Axle system. The Dark Magic II switched from [[Response System#hybrid response systems|hybrid response]] , which came with the old version, to a very likable [[Response System#silicone|silicone]]. Another bigger difference is that this version ships with a responsive bearing in the yoyo, to learn more beginner tricks, and when ready to move on to more complex tricks, it also ships with a unresponsive YoYoJam Speed Bearing, which allows for 100% unresponsive play.

One of the bigger differences between the two yo-yos, is that the Dark Magic II features a Solid Spin Axle system to reduce the chances of cracked hubs, with the bonus of increased longevity. The Solid Spin Axle also provides an adjustable string gap that caters to narrow or wide C-bearings. The yo-yo also features silicone O-ring response.

'''it spins a long time and is easy to land on the string. the unresponsive bearing is even better. it weighs more but still fits in the pocket and comes with a black string. i never miss the string and have an easier time doing tricks. this is the best yoyo i have ever used( way better then the tom kuhn sb2). the only dissadvantage is that if you land it with the responsive bearing it will easily shoot back automaticly. this can be solved by removing the silicon response.[[User:Megaultrachicken|Megaultrachicken]] 21:33, January 23, 2011 (UTC)'''

The Dark Magic II by YoYoJam is the successor to the ever popular Dark Magic, the signature series yo-yo of U.S. National Yo-Yo Master André Boulay. This second version of the legendary yo-yo features a variety of differences from the original.

The first is the reduced rim weight; the previous version weighed in at a rather hefty 70 grams, and at the request of many members of the yo-yo community, YoYoJam had reduced the weight to a more comfortable 67 grams. The diameter is slightly smaller, but the width is slightly wider.

One of the bigger differences between the two yo-yos, is that the Dark Magic II features a Solid Spin Axle system to reduce the chances of cracked hubs, with the bonus of increased longevity. The Solid Spin Axle also provides an adjustable string gap that caters to narrow or wide C-bearings. The yo-yo also features silicone O-ring response.

Another difference is that this version ships with a narrow, responsive bearing in the yo-yo, to learn beginning to intermediate tricks. When the user is ready to move on to more complex tricks, the Dark Magic II also comes included with a dry, 10-ball Speed Bearing, which allows for 100% completely unresponsive play.

The Dark Magic II proved to be one of YoYoJam's most successful and best-selling yo-yos in the 2010s, especially on retailers such as YoYoExpert, where it was the #1 choice. Many editions were released of it, one of which being a special 10th Anniversary edition to celebrate 10 years since the release of the original Dark Magic yo-yo back in 2004.
