what are the differences between the x convict and the dark magic
OOh there’s a lot of differences between those yoyos. Let’s start with the most obvious one; shape. The Dark Magic has a flat-rimmed shape while the X-ConVict has a somewhat flared shape. Then the size. The Dark Magic is what we call a full/normal-sized yoyo. The X-ConVict is a medium-ish sized yoyo. You will also find that the X-ConVict has some really wide metal rings compared to the Dark Magic. The Dark Magic does have wide metal rings, but compared to the X-ConVict, they are relatively small. There is also a 2.5 gram weight difference and a difference in response system.
Addment: That’s about it.
Don’t forget the caps!!! XD
… and the name…
… and the creator…
… and the shinyness…
… and the popularity…
… and the color…
Just the easy things ;D ;D
Shineyness is the same
Colors can be the same.
Its actually fun-killer
Ok, Joy-Killer : : :
so, x-convict is smaller (no like), and has a more flared wing (what does that even do differently?), wait, which is heavier than witch? and is thier a difference in play. i know the dm is more focused on grinding, but whats the x convict got special?
lol. Actually, The x-con is for grinding too and possibly may be easier than the DM. The flared just allows better stability when grinding on arms, back etc. The Dark Magic is a little heavier which makes it (usually) glide through the air harder. (Negligible unless you have been playing for a long time and is acutely in tune with your senses.)
mhm…senses, i got my five, with terrible vision! what senses would you be talking about? and glide throught the air harder? whats that even mean?
xvict is smaller and has a concave shape/ v shape. (i like it a little better than the dm)
dm is bigger and dosnt have a v shape. it almost does but curves out slightly tword the edge.
ps. it is personal preference.
Look at these pictures and you will see the difference.
ok so dm has wider gap, but why does the xconvict weigh less, i mean, it has mor metal on it right? the v shape looks pracicly identical to me, just slightly rounded on the dm…
First off, I wouldn’t say that the X-ConVict has a V-shape. When I think of V-shape, I think of Speeders and something in that area. The X-ConVict has a really special shape though, so we can just call it the X-ConVict shape. And the DM does not have a rounded shape. In fact, if you look closely, you will see that the rims are flat.
And the weight of a yoyo can be pushed up in several ways. And I belive that André wanted his yoyo a bit heavy, so it ended on 70 grams. These are both siganture yoyos, so they are made to fit the maker.
Addment: The pictures look slightly scaled. Is this just me or?
Also, the DM has more metal under the thumb grind lip.
what i meant by rounded was rounded off. what difference does the vict shape give during play? it seems it woulden’t impact string catching that much, is their a signiture set of tricks that people play with it that are difficult on other yoyos?
Well the DM is designed for André’s grinds and thumb grinds, while the X-ConVict is designed for JD’s stalls.
what do you mean by stalls?
