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 response pads. Another difference is that this version ships with a responsive bearing in the yo-yo, to learn more beginner tricks, and when the user is ready to move on to more complex tricks, it also ships with a unresponsive YoYoJam 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, the most recent of which being a special 10th Anniversary edition to celebrate 10 years since the release of the original Dark Magic.
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.Megaultrachicken 21:33, January 23, 2011 (UTC)
My only complaint is that the quality of the printing on the side inserts is quite poor.
