So heres the deal, i have a dark magic 2 thats pretty beat, the rims have chips dings and dents and plays really bad, but even when i had it brand spanking new i just didnt like the feel of it, even with a thin lubed bearing in it it still plays responsive and vibes like crazy, how could this yoyo be their top seller? Even when it was brand new it was a pain the learn on. I bought a shutter and my god what a difference it was smooth, perfect weight, no vibe and it was Cheaper!!! Even now my shutter has lots of chips and dings it my most used yoyo i dont even touch my DM2 yet the shutter is still smoother. Not to mention the gap width is also terrible you have to use shims to get it to play fully unresponsive, centre track and koncave bearings are useless because the bearing wall is really high so it covers half the bearing meaning it plays the same as a flat.
Now this post is my opinion, i dont hate YYJ theres nothing wrong with them, and sure it could have been a lemon that i never picked up on because i was a noob when i got it.
Now i know what youre thinking “why didnt you just send it back”. Well as i said at the time i was a noob and didnt know what a smooth yoyo felt like i just thought that this was it. Anyone else feel the same?
