Dark Magic 2


#1

Anyone getting the newly designed Dark Magic 2, I can already tell that they will sell out really fast…


#2

what do u mean newly designed?


#3

What, is there a new Dark Magic in the release timeline?

I’d probably get it if there was one, but right now I’m very pleased with my DM2.


#4

Are you sure that isn’t the LEGACY II that you thinking about?


#5

Well the design on the side of the Dark Magic has changed


#6

Mmm k. I just heard that there will be a legacy 2. I hope so…either way is fine.


#7

Oh really? When?

#9

Wow cool when was it released?


#10

I think nationals…probably


#11

Oh okay well what do you think of the DM2 special edition?


#12

Please post a link to the pics when describing this kind of stuff. And it looks great! http://shop.yoyoexpert.com/product/4/YYJ-Dark-Magic-II


#13

Got one on the way…


#14

That is a good lookin yoyo


#15

It looks like, based on the cap design, a call-back to the MasterMagic web site.


#16

The cap graphics are a little too busy IMO, but this is a very handsome throw. I like it. Are those black rims still aluminum? They look plastic in the pic. If the rims are plastic this would have far less appeal to me.


#17

My guess is anodized aluminum rims. If it was plastic, it wouldn’t be a DM2, it might as well be a Legacy II because the weight would be different.

I also think the side graphics are a bit busy. Then again, the caps on the normal DM2’s sold here are kind of busy as well, but it’s just a different kind of thing going on. I bet these caps are a lot “flatter” and probably won’t rattle.


#18

Yeah Chris, I’m certain you are correct about the rims. It just couldn’t be called a DMII if the rim weight was altered.

I am a graphic artist by trade so I am probably more critical of cap design than the next joe. I really like the look of this yoyo. I have a Dark Magic and not a DMII now. I’m thinking real seriously about buying this Special Edition, I really like the look of it. A lot.


#19

does it play any different? Because if it doesn’t i think I’ll just stick with the “original” dark magic 2.


#20

I think it’s just a DM2 with black anodized rims and a different cap, and $5 more. I’d say that if you already have a DM2, no need to get this unless you really just have to have it. If you don’t have a DM2 or are considereing one, it’s an interesting color option. As I said before, the black and red contrast nicely. If you like YYE customized throws, this would be one to get for sure. If you’re into limited editions/rares, that’s another reason to get it.

I’m going to pass on this one. I have a blue DM2, I love it, it’s my main throw still. But, this special edition one does look pretty sweet.
