Yoyojam Dark Magic 2 review!

Yoyojam Dark Magic 2 yoyo review!!

Hi everyone, it is raining so no bind tutorial, but I thought I would do something slightly different and review a cheaper yoyo. This yoyo was my first  serious yoyo. But the Dark Magic 2 is not a new yoyo, so the real question here is whether or not it is still a good intermediate.

Specs and Size

Here are the specs on the Dark Magic 2:

Diameter: 56.13mm
Width:      41.4mm
Weight:    69g
Gap Width:      With Narrow Bearing: 3m
                         With Speed Bearing:   4.95mm

You might notice that this yoyo ships with 2 different bearings. That is worth knowing because that lets this  yoyo do basic tricks like walk the dog all the way to very hard tricks. But nothing on these specs stand out, the Dark Magic is just a larger yoyo.
NOTE: The picture above is the Dark Magic 2 with the narrow bearing, which makes the yoyo responsive!

How Does it Play?

Slow. This yoyo is not fast. It is very easily controllable. I find it sleeps for a reasonable amount of time. It feels like it has a lot of power, which it does thanks to it weighing 69g

Final Thoughts

Clearly, this is not a yoyo that the pros would use nowadays. However, I feel like this yoyo is still the best beginner yoyo on the market. With 2 bearings, 69g weight, and a big catch zone, this yoyo is perfect for anyone that is new to yoyoing.
