 Heres my review of the M002. Its my first review so critisism is welcome.

Features:
1. Triple colour Acid wash/sandblasting
2. Fully unresponsive, can swap out for responsive bearing
3. Good thumb grind ring
4. H shape
5. Comes lubed with perfect amount
6. Virtually no sound, absolutely no vibe
7. Comes with decent string

Specifications:
1.Body Shape: H
2.Weight:65.6g
3.Diameter:54.93mm
4.Width:42.21mm
5.Gap Width:4.6mm
6.Bearing: magic yoyo centre track size C (large)
7.Bearing: Stainless magicyoyo centre bearing
8.Body Material:aluminium Alloy 6061
9.Response: magicyoyo Yellow Silicon Pad

Made in early 2015 by MagicYoyo, The M002 Has a few great features for competion or relaxing play. The biggest feature i must mention is the price to qaulity ratio. I picked up mine on ebay for 25 dollars (shipping included) and it plays as well as my shutter!

There are 3 colours available: silver with blue, silver with purple or the killer green, black and Light gold.

The first thing I said and thought when I opened up the box was wow, my inner child was satisfied the 3 colours blended so well, I hurried to put the string on and sent it through all my favourite tricks, no problem. I was amazed at the fact that it was outperforming my shutter! It was so smooth, it was a blast to play with and grind. This is where it differs from the shutter, the April plays smooth and floaty and spins for a while compared to the shutters somewhat more solid feel. While you cant do a FULLY horizontal finger grind due to the inner cup design you can do a off axis finger grind.

With a width and diameter 2mm smaller than the YYF Shutter you can play slightly faster but still keep the stability and spin times.

Now for the cons. The only thing I can find is that when doing of axis finger grinds your finger nail can leave a visible scratch in the surface, while this does not affect play it can affect its visual apeal, a yoyo glove easily fixes this which, to my satisfaction, also comes with the yoyo along with a decent polyester string.

The conclusion, the Magicyoyo M002 is a steal for its price range, and easily outperforms yoyos well above it in price. I highly reccomend it, it is also my current favourite out of my 9 yoyos.

What do you guys think? Was it a good review, did i miss anything out, should i change some things?

-Alex

Nice review.
I think you need spec listed on there, and more picture. The April is a bi-metal, am I correct?
For price vs performance, Magic yoyo kinda stands for its name.

Also, after reading several review on YYE, I think the shutter should be the benchmark for reviews.

It's all 6061, the rings are just polished 6061.

Looks cool though

The review format looks great.  You may include a few different angles on the product shots for future reviews.  Here is the April back in February for the first day of May.

I really like that yoyo. My fiance uses it as her main 5a throw as we're not too worried about the dings considering the price point Wink. I also picked up the M003 Prophet and actually think it's really complimentary to the M002 because it has a much narrower width.

Generally you cannot replace pads with o-rings.
