could someone tell me if this is a good trade?


#1

ok i might be tradeing my 888 for a near mint good and evil4 black lily
i know next to nothing about it so could someone give me some pros and cons?


#2

The lily has a 5mm gap stock, but you can replace with a 4mm bearing - most people I think prefer with the not so huge gap. They weigh about the same, but the Lily is much larger (diameter = 59mm). Whether its an even trade probably depends on which 888 it is.

Well, this is all that I know.

888= $120
Good and Evil= $110

Is the 888 mint or dinged?

pretty mint but i got it for 78

It all depends on what matters to you. Are you looking for a good collectors item or a good player? What size do you prefer? What 888 is it? What are the conditions of the yoyos?

It seems like a great trade. I mean you are trading an 888 you got for 78 dollars for something that cost 110. Minus the wear, it would be around 80-90 so yeah. I think so. Did they send pictures of the yoyo? Also, it depends on whether or not you like large sized or undersized yoyos.

Personally, I’de rather have the 888, but that is just due to my dislike to the G&E4.  I have a review somewhere…

Found it, Here it is.

Now, the main problem can be fixed with a thinner bearing, so it is all about preference.

Id keep the 888 personally, the G&E4 is known to have a lot of torque which means it has quite the backspin, so when you throw it frontstyle it has a tendency to sort of swing backwards. Its hard to explain, but it annoys me, other then that I just find the yoyo too big in general, and one more thing I prefer about the 888 is the bearing, large bearings ftw.
