Intro- So you probably know MagicYoyo as the Chinese budget metal company. We’ll that’s what I thought when first checked them out. I later realized they were an Indonesian company and also carried two plastic models. The d5 and d6. What made these yoyos ever more interesting is that they glow. So I took the 29.97 plunge and ordered my first Delrin. Was it a smart decision? Let’s see!
Weight- 68 grams
Bearing- Size C Buddha Dimple
Construction-it looks as though the Dark Sprite has a nice V shape. With a easily accessible catch zone. Features a blasted rim that makes grinding a piece of cake. The inner cup includes the weight rings and past that a metal center. The weight rings are thin so there is a IRG past it.
Response and Bearing- there’s good news and bad news with the response. Bad news: it’s snaggy. Good news: it only last 2 days. The response is now smooth and reliable. The bearing looks like a CT. After cleaning and lubing it plays quite nice. Buddha bearings seem fine by me.
Weight- this is a 68 gram yoyo. Maybe a bit heavy for some at first glance. (Protostar is 67.5grams) However it’s not sluggish at all. Id give it a medium paced rating. (I rarely go fast. It may have such capabilities)
Glow- it’s freakin awesome. Glow super bright. My iPhone flashlight super charges it and makes late night practice possible. #nolights
Playability- the D5 is a well playing yoyo. Once you get past the couple days of snaggy response, you’ll enjoy a smooth, solid, stable yoyo. As I’ve said it’s no slug and should be fine for medium to fast paced play.
Final thoughts- This yoyo plays well, has a pretty price tag, plus it Glows. I think that if you decide to fork out the cash you won’t be disappointed.
First review. Thanks for reading. Comments welcome.
