DM vs DMII


#1

what exactly are the differences between the Dark Magic and the Dark Magic II. Because I JUST bought a Dark Magic 2 weeks ago and they just released a new one, is there anyway to exchange them or buy equivilent upgrades for my Dark Magic?

-Jehsee


#2

i think or hope it would be an improvement
i mean why make a seconed one if it is worse than the first :wink:


#3

but what’s better about it?


#4

I’m pretty sure it has metal throughout the body underneath the plastic, like the Revolution.

I’ve used the Revolution and it’s awesome, it has a little different feel to it then normal yyj bi-metals, I really liked it.

Also, I think its a tad lighter


#5

your right and everything, but i dont see how being lighter is an improvement. the DM is pretty light itself.


#6

The original dm was 70 grams thats not light

the main difference is the new axle and the yyj silicone pads on both sides


#7

As far as I’ve seen, the axle, silicone pads (no more hybrid response for all you starburst haters - and o-ring haters at that), and the 3-gram weight difference are the only differences from the original. Also, it ships with both a thin bearing (think half SPEC) for responsive play and a standard C size bearing for unresponsive play. So to my understanding, this could eliminate the need for shims and make this a pretty solid throw. I’m honestly highly interested in trying it for myself.

Oh, and it uses translucent plastic to emulate the original release of the first DM.


#8

Yah with the standard c bearing in it, it has a 4.95 mm gap which is to me perfect. I wasnt a huge fan of the original 3.40 mm gap, it just seemed to thin IMO.

If you read the product page, it lists all the differances.
