The Dark Magic II by 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 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 comes included with a unresponsive, 10-ball 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.
