A SPECIAL INTRODUCTION
Hey, thanks a lot for checking out my Black Knight review. This is actually my second review. (Speeder was actually my first. Feel free to check that out too.) Now, back to the subject. Let’s check out this yo yo!
OH YEAH! TIME TO GET TO THE YO YO!
What an amazing yo yo this is! Let me tell you some stuff about the Black Knight. First of all, if you like tug response, Like the Sunset Trajectory (example) just put a flat bearing in it.(Or use the bearing they give you) The tricks I REALLY like to do with the Black Knight are “The Zipper, Split the Atom, and the grind.” But there are some not very good things about this yo yo I do not like. But we’ll get to that later.
BLACK KNIGHT AXLE AND BEARING
We’ll start with the axle. The axle is VERY long! Since this yo yo’s axle is so long, the gap is very, very adjustable. From max response to so you almost can’t bind it. Now let’s talk about the bearing. The bearing seat is very loose. So your fingers won’t struggle to get your bearing out. So you can pretty much switch bearings over and over again. But keep in mind that when you open the gap to get a tangle out, your bearing might come out of its seat along with the string.
YO YO COMPARISONS
We are going to compare some things with the
Black Knight, Dark Magic, and the X-convict.
Out of all three of these yo yos, the Black Knight
is the heaviest. (To me, it gives more control.)
Out of all three, I think the black knight has
the smoothest grind with it’s comfortable metal
rims. Unlike the Dark Magic/X-convict, the
Black Knight’s shape is very round and
straight. The others are diagonal and slanted.
But, if you like that slanted shape, this yo yo might not be for you.
I also couldn’t get a very long sleep time with this yo yo unfortunately. :’( And the tricks I don’t really like to do with this yo yo are long, complex string tricks. I also don’t like to do fast tricks with this yo yo. (Unlike the Speeder)
THE UNDECIDED/ THE CONCLUSION
We’re almost done here unfortunately. I haven’t decided yet about if I like the thumb grinds. It has some vibrations, but it also has a pretty deep space to fit your thumb inside. :-\ I would recommend this yo yo for people that like to do simple string tricks, and people that are first learning string tricks. Alright, time to wrap this up. You can watch the video on this yo yo in the yo yo expert online shop. Yep, that’s it. Hoped you liked this review and the Black Knight. See you later! ;D
