The DV888 by YoYoFactory was released in 2009, and is based on the very popular DV8 yo-yo by Buzz-On that, due to patent issues, was never officially released. The DV8 was so popular, however, that YoYoFactory teamed up with Buzz-On to breathe life back into this desired design.

Review

It's metal, smooth, has a wide gap, quick, reliable, feels good, and spins for a long time. Check out that popping color too!

I quite honestly wasn't nearly as excited as I am after I played with the DV888; I suppose, because it was based on a preexisting yo-yo, I didn't expect a brand new flavor, but this yo-yo feels totally different and plays so well that its hard not to keep coming back to it. The best yo yo!

It has a decent amount of center weight that makes it feel very solid and enough rim weight to keep it spinning for a long time, all the while keeping the 888 size for a speedy yo-yo on the string and a smooth, pretty coating that feels and looks great. It reminds me of the M1 coating, if you have ever felt that before. The K-pad response works wonderfully and the YoYoFactory etched bearing looks and plays super. --Andrew Robinson
