No, he’s probably talking about the 888. And I dislike the swelling up of the dv888’s image right now, and making the DM seem insignificant. Will the Dv888 sleep longer? Probably. Does it maybe look a bit better? Perhaps. However, the DM vs. the dv888 isn’t as cut and dry as many of you have put it. If you only have a velocity so far, you may not even know your own preferences yet. I had a high end metal. Was it awesome performance? yeah. Did it do everything that any other metal could? Sure. but it just didn’t fit me, and I traded it for a cheaper yoyo that DID fit me. You can’t tell someone which band is best, you can’t tell someone what the best TV show is, and you sure can’t tell someone which yoyo is superior.
I personally believe at intermediate you shouldn’t buy a high end metal, but rather a DM. But I hate to be a hypocrite and go against what I just said. so if you could try them, or at least analyze what type of play you like to do, and how they would benefit you in relation to what you’re spending, then choose.
