So I just acquired a Dark Magic 2, and it feels and plays great. I only have a question for you all, since I’m just new at this type of yoyo-ing.
I am still using the small ball-bearing element, for more responsive play, but it feels more like a semi-responsive yoyo (if that is even possible). I doesn’t really reacts when I tug it to get it up, I sometimes just have to tug it once, sometimes 5/6 times. Other tricks like “pop-the-clutch” or a “trapeze” with a more fancy return almost aren’t possible anymore. And when it does come back the string isn’t properly twisted around the yoyo.
So I use the DM2 fresh out of the box, small bearing and with the original response system still fully intact. I am wondering if there’s something wrong or that this is the way it is supposed to react, even while using the more responsive small bearing.
I really appreciate all the help and comments!
