Magic YoYo – N12 Shark Honor – Blue – Profile

This is probably my favorite of the N/K/T series of yo-yos from Magic Yo-Yo. It’s the most fun to play because it’s stable and performs well for the price. I’d still rather have a nice plastic yo-yo in this price range but if metal is what you want, an N12 Shark Honor won’t disappoint you.

Very cheap ($20) metal yoyo, plays very well only downside is the bearing, you may want to get a new bearing to get the most out of this YoYo

Recently got the N12 since it was the cheapest metallic I could find, and I am loving it so far! Fair warning I don't have much experience with other yoyos, this is a beginner's review. It sleeps for very long and seems well balanced, and so far has not disappointed me while trying to learn new tricks. If the trick fails, it feels 100% my fault, and not the yoyo's. And for beginners its price makes it easy to not sweat it too much if you ding it a few times. Also it comes in many color options, and some very nice splash patterns too.

After initial frustration with this yo-yo compared to others, I gave it a second chance. It's got a smooth, simple organic shape. The anodizing and design makes it seem a little cheap, but take it for a spin, and WOW. This rivals more expensive metals like the Shutter, and the simple catch area design makes it much more comfortable than the Shutter to catch. It comes with a concave bearing that starts out noisy but breaks in fairly quickly, as well as very soft MagicYoYo string. This string seems to be far too slick to bind well - replacing it with generic 100% poly string makes it come alive. Overall, a great recommendation as a gift, starter throw, or as a budget metal to add to your collection.

A nice metallic throw with a low cost. As a beginner, coming from the N9, this was a very nice upgrade. Feels very stable and surprisingly light for its size, though this may be coming from having only used smaller throws, so take this with a grain of salt. All in all, a very nice throw for those looking to get an unresponsive cheap.

I got this yoyo nearly two years ago when I was initially starting out. The main appeal I saw in it was that it was a metallic unresponsive yoyo for a considerably cheaper price than most others shown. Since then I've gotten a couple other good quality yoyos (One Drop and C3) that cost double the amount this one did, and the N12 still preforms on par against them. You will be hard-pressed to find another throw that preforms nearly as well for the price. I would highly recommend this yoyo to any newcomer looking for a cheap , good quality, unresponsive throw.

I used to say that this is the quintessential beginner's unresponsive yoyo. It is metal (cool factor) it is super playable and stable (learning is fun on it) it is blasted (good grinds when you get to that point) and it is SUPER cheap (found mine for $16 shipped within the US on eBay) BUT, now that the Replay Pro has debuted, and since that plays so well it was used by Gentry Stein to win Nationals, the N12 has been bumped down. It plays heavy, it can be a tad slow, and the vibe and anno quality is hit and miss, as usual with the N/K/T series of MYY. However, this thing is a tank. It is like the AK47 of Yoyos, you can ding this as much as you want, the spin quality doesn't seem to diminish too much. Yeah, you will get some string vibe after a point, but within reason, it will be just as good as when you bought it.

This was my first yoyo I ever got. At under $20 you can't beat it! The finish is wonderful, the balance is great and it's okay to play fast or slow! I highly recommend it to any beginner or someone looking to get their first metal! The bearing mine came with was very sub par but I switched it for a grooved 10 ball and it preforms on par with my $50 plus throws! For the price, you simply can't beat it!

Decided upon this as my first yoyo and am very pleased. It is smooth and sleeps like a baby. Me being a beginner, the yoyo has held its own against several hard strikes against the ground without a noticeable difference in balance. Although there are noticeable dings around the edges, they don't change the performance as far as I can tell. For the price I'd recommend it to any other new thrower without hesitation.

My first yoyo was the YYF Velocity followed by the MYY T5 Overlord. Both were ok yoyos, but after getting my N12, they started collecting dust. Even after my 2014 Black Friday Mystery Box (contained the Regen and North Star) this was still my main throw. The N12 is in my opinion the best budget yoyo. It is extremely stable with really average stats.If it's one complaint, it's that the stock yoyo is no where as good as one that has been upgraded. Once you learn how to silicone a yoyo as well as buy a new bearing, this yoyo is good as any metal yoyo in the 50 dollar range for sure. Pros: Extremely stable, long spinning, inexpensive, the splash versions look really nice in real life. Cons: Stock response pads are very mediocre, stock bearings can range from bad to OK. Need to upgrade/ replace for maximum performance. May be too "boring" for some as it has very standard measurements.

It's stupidly stable and very quiet for a discount metal throw. I'm honestly surprised by the quality. I still pull it out to get use to the light weight, but it feels SO tiny in my big mitts. I'm worried I'd crush it, but it's stupidly durable. So it's a great cheap metal throw. Bearings are nice on mine, but might need to be replaced soonish.

My first metal. This yoyo plays well above its price range. I didn't have any trouble with it. The bearings and response were both fully functional, but not as nice as higher end throws. I ended up replacing the response with flowable silicon and the bearing with a Whipple. It's extremely stable and still my go-to yoyo for learning new tricks.

I got the N12 after much deliberation despite its extremely modest price point. This was my first unresponsive throw and I found it relatively easy to bind. It feels quite fast and nimble on the string compared to some of my other throws. I did end up replacing the bearing for a generic 10 ball as the 8 ball included felt a little sluggish, event after cleaning. I would definitely recommend for a beginner wanting to start out, its great value for the price range, I'd recommend checking out the rest of the MYY range.

This yoyo is probably one of the best designs you can get for under $70 (just because for $70 you can get some budget bimetal). The design is low walled, it's beadblasted, has lots of rim weight, nice diameter and width, it has everything you want in a competition yoyo. If this yoyo wasn't $20 I'd give just a 4star review because it doesn't feature an IGR, but on it's price range there's no better choice (so 5 star it is). Even if you go up to $50 you will have a hard time trying to get a better yoyo.

You can't beat the price, the yoyo looks awesome and plays pretty good. I would recommend this as a first metal throw.
