First Impression: Once it was released, what I saw was a modern fashionable garish throw with classic width. The design of the gap is tight for gripping. Weight disturbed along the inner rim and should be stable and solid. Could form a 3A pair as a result of the W-shape design (The wing shape, as how One-drop calls it) and width. For a long period, I didn’t see anyone who had bought M003 and it might be underrated. The blast is possibly 220 grit.

Actual Look: Incredibly thin. Identical look as the the promotion picture - no exaggeration with photographic technique. A little bit trace of anodizing imperfection. The aluminium ring has two stairs. The engraving of the LOGO is unified overall using the same font and the pattern of drawing is similar to the way the font is; nothing is inharmonic. The package is still the classic jubilant Magic Yo-yo case. The wall is curvy inward and has a sharp contact surface with string.

Accessories: Two of the three packs have a Magic Yo-yo hung and one piece of polyester string, another one has only a fiber string. I think it depends on the retailer since they are from 2 different retailers. The bearing is not as impressive as Dif-e nor ADC and it is noisy like the ones on Aliexpress. but I guess it is enough for a budget model.

Actual Play: Feels dense, solid and stable as expected. Handy as a Yoyoempire Thunderbolt but with narrow gripping. The gripping is close to a C3yoyodesign Heartbeat and the gap width is only 0.08 mm thinner than Thunderbolt gap’s which provides its the capability of handling typical aggressive combos; the gap width is an advantage for 5A stall elements but is a disadvantage for 3A binds. Using short string can cause slight vibration on string as I tried 3A; potentially it could be a suitable 3A pair if replace with thick response pad or string. Finger-spin runs for 5-8 seconds. The spin time is sufficient for a 5-30 second dense 1A combo, appears to be exhausted for 40+ second dense 1A routine and 55+ plain 1A one-throw.

Price Evaluation: Made in Shenzhen, China and 23$ on Amazon w/ free shipping that makes me have no regrets about the order even though I bought multiple of them. Being used as a 3A pair for the past half month and dinged several times on concrete, but didn’t not have trace of stripping and increase of vibration. The inspection is neat for all 3 M003 that I have purchased.
