We feel the Dark Magic is hands down one of the best intermediate to advanced yo-yos on the market. With its wide metal aluminum rings, extra weight, and extra width it is the perfect yo-yo for learning string tricks that require a stable and long sleeping yo-yo.
As a matter of fact in nearly every featured tutorial video here you will see the Dark Magic in use.
Designed by World Yo-Yo Contest Judge André Boulay it has been used by many famous players to place as high as 2nd in the World Yo-Yo Contest and 1st in the National Yo-Yo Contest.
The all new Dark Magic II is also available featuring the YoYoJam Solid Spin Axle System. It brings the metal rimmed yo-yo together as if it was a completely solid metal body resulting in a very stable yo-yo. Dark Magic II ships with a standard bearing installed which allows the yo-yo to be more responsive for beginner to intermediate play. When you are ready to move on to more complex tricks, simply change to the Speed bearing included in the package to move up to an unresponsive yo-yo capable of the most complex string tricks.
This yo-yo is magic in your hands – you have to try it to believe it.

The dm2 comes with two bearings. One is narrow and allows the string to return with a tug. This is very advantageous for newer players or those just wishing to tug the yo back to the hand. However, although it is tug responsive, this is not a looping yo. Ready for unresponsive play? Replace the narrow bearing with the speed bearing. Now the dm2 isn't going to return with a tug, you will need a bind!
The dm2 feels a bit on the larger size and plays a bit more slowly and deliberate than other yoyojam yoyos. However, that's often beneficial for beginning and intermediate players. Oh, don't think for a moment that this yo can't move fast, you just have to push it a bit.
Will the Dark Magic 2 cast it's spell on you? Give it a try and see.
