YoYoJam is the successor to the ever popular Dark Magic, the signature series yo-yo of national yo-yo master Andre Boulay. This second version features a variety of differences from the previous Dark Magic.
The first is the reduced rim weight; the previous version weighed in at a hefty 70 grams, and at the request of many members of the yo-yo community, YoYoJam lowered the weight to a more comfortable 67 grams. The diameter is slightly smaller, and the width is slightly wider. One of the bigger differences between the two yo-yos, is that the Dark Magic II features YoYoJam's Solid Spin Axle system to reduce cracked hubs and increase longevity. The Dark Magic II also features silicone O-ring response. Another difference is that this version ships with a responsive bearing in the yo-yo, to learn beginning to intermediate tricks, and when the user is ready to move on to more complex tricks, it also comes included with a dry, 10-ball Speed Bearing, which allows for 100% unresponsive play.
The Dark Magic II proved to be one of YoYoJam's best-selling yo-yos, especially on retailers such as YoYoExpert.Com, where it is 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.
