Design and Construction
Magic Yoyo nailed it in the creation of the yoyo. The Stealth presents a v-shape that is suitable for both 1A and 5A.In this case, Magic Yoyo stepped up the game and decided to create a premium bimetal design far from the old and budget series N(N5, N8, N11, N12 etc).
The overall shape looks organic and you can tell from a distance that the yoyo will fit onto your hand comfortably for you to throw. The Stealth has round edges on which the metal rings sit.
The surface of the yoyo is bead-blasted, making the toy have a matt finish which is perfect for grind tricks. The Chinese machining is exceptional and you don’t have any scratches or manufacturing issues. Near the gap of the yoyo, you have a step-up rounded shape which is a unique addition to the yoyo design.
If you look at the side cups you will notice that they are similar to the ones of the YoyoFactory Horizon. By the way, you can do finger grinds pretty well if you are knowledgeable in this area. However, if you have a shiny surface on the cups, you may not be able to do finger spins too well.
Luckily, this yoyo model comes in various colourways and finishes, so you will be able to get your hands on a yoyo that has matt finishes on the outside and the fingerspin cup. Depending on the yoyo surface you can also do thumb grinds as you have a thumb grind lip on the edge of the yoyo.
The Central Trac Bearing is silent and spins for a long time. The axle is short because there is the finger-spin cup which is kind of deep.
Not only that but the yoyo material is 7075 aluminium which is way tougher than the 6061 aluminium. Consequently, you have fewer chances of stripping the axle. It might happen to you to hear some scratches when you untwist the yoyo.
Playability and feel
This high-end yoyo made by Magic Yoyo plays effortlessly on the string. The weight is average for the yoyo and you may even call it a bit floaty, but when it comes to playing with it you can feel its force when spinning.
The Magic Yoyo M04 Stealth has a decent size gap so you can land your yoyo on the string easily. The metal rims give the yoyo more stability so it stays on plane and doesn’t deviate.
The grind finish is perfect for performing your finger grinds which last for 5-7 seconds, meanwhile, you can do your awesome grind tricks. The shape and the exterior finish allow you to do rejection tricks fairly easily.

You won’t have to worry so much about damaging the yoyo as it is made of 7075 aluminium.
