Legacy II Yoyo
YoTricks' Take on The Legacy II Yoyo
The Legacy II meets the need for a great yoyo under $30 that can be used for advanced string tricks. It is designed to play and feel like the popular Dark Magic 2, but is made with an all-plastic body to keep the price down. Like other more expensive YoYoJam yoyos, the Legacy II comes with a thin bearing and a wide bearing; the thin bearing is for responsive play, and the wide bearing is for advanced play. In this way the Legacy II is great for those making the transition into unresponsive yoyoing.
The question remains, is it as good as the Dark Magic II? Almost. The yoyos use the same bearing, the same axle system, they weigh nearly the same, and are practically identical in shape. Both yoyos sleep great and play wonderfully on the string. The major difference in feel comes from The Dark Magic 2′s metal rims which push most of the weight to the outside of the yoyo giving it its signature look and feel. The Legacy II yoyo lacks these metal rims, which means that the weight is more evenly distributed. Because of this it lacks that rock-solid stability which the Dark Magic II is known for. On the flip side, since it is all plastic, some yoyoers will find the transition to more advanced yoyoing eased by a sense of familiarity, as the way it feels and plays shares much in common with other conventional plastic yoyos.
One final thought for those on the fence: The fact that it is all plastic does cut down on the “cool factor” compared to the Dark Magic II, if you care about such things. Then again, the Legacy II does have a dragon on it.
Y.T.Peterman Catalog Description of The Legacy II Yoyo
I didn’t see it with my own eyes. But I saw its effects. The battle left the young man beaten and scarred; the legacy of a vicious beast. His disheveled hair, his torn belt, the YoTricks bloop tenaciously hanging on, boldly displaying the prize of his victory. This was the second legacy.
Some say that dragons don’t exist. Now I know better. Its body was burned to ashes, but the treasure it hoarded, the yoyo of ages, is proof enough. The beast is gone. With the warrior of his destruction the two will no doubt fall into myth and legend. But their legacy will live on in the gift they left us: the Legacy II Yoyo.
Manufacturer's Description of The Legacy II Yoyo
Introducing the Legacy II from YoYoJam – the first yo-yo from YoYoJam to feature an internal weight system and be modeled after the ever popular Dark Magic.
Considered a “gateway” yo-yo since it is built for players ready to learn “bind returns” and more intermediate to advanced tricks.
The Legacy is also molded in celcon – a strong yet flexible plastic that is also chemical resistant. The celcon created slick surface also makes grinding easier to learn and control. This new and updated version also features YoYoJam’s solid spin axle system for a stronger build and more precise spin dynamics.
This yo-yo was designed by National Yo-Yo Master André Boulay to be the ultimate in learning both beginner and advanced string tricks.
The Legacy of the Dark Magic will now live on in the first high end plastic model from YoYoJam!
