Ok, lets start off. I like this yo-yo very much, my Hub-Stacks haven’t broken in completely so I am not ready to compare to my Dark Magic. To sum things up this is a Plastic Yo-yo with Hub-Stacks and version 2, the version 1 I believe has weight rings and people say they prefer it more but I am not sure where to get V1.
Pro’s/Description. A plastic body of course, but it has a rim, specially textured so longer spin times on your skin. This yo yo also comes with Hub-Stacks, these allow you to hold the yo yo while its spinning or pull the string and while holding it, it spins. This yo yo has a gap that is very large compared to the Dark Magic so binds MIGHT be a bit slippy but it really depends on how you do your bind. For me it binds with no snags perfectly. OK ever heard of vibe? Don’t expect to have a chance of seeing vibe with your eyes with this yo-yo.((Unless you have a BAAAAAAAAD sleeper or it just falls out of your hand connected to your finger, but all yo-yos’ vibe like that.))My Dark Magic has much more vibe than this but, I’ve only been yo-yoing for what 3 months now? I don’t remember writing this but this is TRULY unresponsive do to the larger gap and response system of K-Pads.Onto the response system of K-Pads, the PGM v2 has Medium Sises K-Pads or also known as Grind Machine size or Turning Point size. The K-Pads give you truly nice binds, TINY bit slippy but no snags. The yo yo comes shipped with a polyester string, normal YYF bearing and hub stacks on the PGM v2.
Cons/Description: The PGM V2 is a great yo-yo, but here are some cons. The space for Thumb Grinding is very small due to the shape and Hub-Stacks. My thumb can barely go in the area and im like 80 pounds and only 12. The surface around the hub stacks is very easily scratch-able,the ring area. I took me nail and just moved it along the surface and It got scratched, It might be less see-able if you have a different color than white which is what I have. Also if your string is tight/loose while holding the hub stacks it can get hold of the yo-yo and suddenly twist around the hub stacks and your finger. The response system ((K-Pads)) wear out in about two weeks so its good to buy spares, 2.50 for a pair I believe. Or you may silicone wear the K-Pads sit, ((its already recessed)).
This yo-yo is truly GREAT for its price, there is a metal version which unfortunately YoYo-Expert doesn’t have, so just look on any other Yoyo Store site, but we do have the one I just did the review on and the K-Pads Medium Size ((Grind Machine size)). I give this yo-yo a 9/10!
