Whats the difference between the 09 and 07; 888 which one should I get?

there is a weight difference. the 2009 one is a lot heavier and slower. the 2007 is a lot lighter and faster. the 2008 is in between. and the 2009 is semi-glossed, not beadblasted. i like the 2007 one.

He asked the differences, not what you liked more. But yes, those are the differences.

Nothing wrong with tossing in an opinion…

Those are all the differences I know. I think that some of the 08 ones used a higher grade of aluminum, but I’m not positive.


Aircraft Aluminum I think.

Here I got more details:

Differences from '07 to '08:

  • Upgraded to Type 7075 aluminum for a harder, more scratch resistant surface (not completely scratch resistant, of course) and more solid feel
  • Premium bearing and hubstack kit, meaning Dorothy bearings for both the main center bearing AND the hubstack bearings, as well as clear stacks.
  • YoYoFactory Premium laser engraving
  • YoYoFactory Silicone Pad response
  • Upgraded packaging
  • Polished finish
  • Available in large (.250 x .500 x .187 inches) or small (5x10x4 mm) bearing sizes.
