First off, I am just a beginner barely moving to intermediate string tricks. I was looking for a hybrid that pushed the weight to the rims. I was told to look at others beside the DM 2. They said it was an older yoyo with much better ones out. I ended up with 25% off for a DM 2. I bought it and I was very impressed right away. It comes with the responsive bearing installed and an unresponsive bearing in the box. Basically 2 yoyo’s in one. I got a nice looking white one.
As soon as I threw it down I was impressed. I thought it might feel heavy but, not at all. It was very stable. It actually was more stable than I figured it would be. My throw downs were smoother. It landed tricks as well as any other yoyo I have played with. Once I changed to the unresponsive bearing, I was able to put multiple strings in to the gap for some string tricks without a problem. I still work on the Mach 5 trick and this has been the only yoyo I have come close to accomplishing it. Yes, I do know it is my lack of talent but still it was easier. This is now something I will use as my primary throw.
Fun to play with
Unresponsive bearing included
Easy to change bearing
None I can think of
There are other reviews from better players but, a player with my skill level this is great choice. It may not grind or spin for 7 days but it is well worth the money.
