Best Yoyo To buy under $120


#1

Hey, I really need a less responsive yoyo (i have a duncan throw monkey) that has a way longer sleep time.

im looking at the dark magic by yyj, but im wondering if there is a better one out there for me? my style is 1A string tricks, and i know how to bind catch.
i was also looking at the vendetta by duncan.

i dont know which one to get, because i am becoming better really fast, and i want a yoyo that ill still use as when im close to pro. i do have a preference for metal, but it’s not a big deal if its plastic or something like that. again, my budget is around $100

Thanks for the help ;D

Dv888


(Alceste) #7

I would get a Dv888. It’s 65$ I think, and it’s solid metal. That would be good, but that’s IMO…


(Mikey) #8

DV888, you will get better with this amazing throw.


#9

fanatic is going to be sixty if you can wait. ive played one and its the bomb better than a dv888 in my opinion


#10

dv888 wishes it was as good as a Project 2. Get a One Drop Project 2 and save the extra 30 for something else :smiley:


#11

DV888 is just as good as a P2.


#12

First off the Dv888 just plain doesn’t play as smooth. Secondly, the corners on the Dv888 are annoyingly sharp and painful when learning new tricks. Thirdly, the Dv888 has an axle that will strip out sooner rather than later where as the P2 has a replaceable axle. The Dv888 has a terrible bearing seat that requires an unacceptable amount of force to get the bearing off of. The P2 is a better yoyo end of story.


#13

Then how come I like the Dv888 better than the P2. Does that make me wrong? No.

Its preference.


(Nova) #14

Did you already get something? It says your favorite yo-yo is a DM. ???


(SR) #15

dv888 all the way.


#16

“did you already get something? it says you have a dm”

well, no. i dont know which one to get, but ill take a look at the project two. thynx for all the help btw


#17

No, it just means you have bad taste :stuck_out_tongue: jk. But seriously, the P2 is a better made yoyo. Which one you like the feel of better is preference, but the P2 is greater quality and that’s just fact.


#18

Once again; In MY opinion, the Dv888 is a better made yoyo.

I’m not saying you’re wrong, just saying that the P2 isn’t “better” than the Dv888 in any way


#19

Agreed. No yoyo is better than the other. I also like the Dv888 more than the P2.


#20

Ok, please explain to me reasons why the Dv888 is a better made yoyo. I’d really like to hear them. I’ve given reasons why the P2 is a better made yoyo, but other than “I like it” I have yet to hear how the Dv888 is made better. You liking the way the Dv888 plays better that’s fine I understand its preference, but saying that the Dv888 is made better requires some things that are not preference to back it up. Looking forward to your reasons.
