which one is better for a newer yoyo.
Both are amazing.
I’d go with Raptor though, as it allows you to experiment with heavier playing yoyos by adding the cap’s weight, or removing it.
Depends. Is it your first yoyo? Then raptor. If yot just looking for a yoyo to add to yoir collection, then it would depend on your preferences. Size, weight, color, shape, response, etc…
I liked my DV888 but I haven’t used a Raptor though.
I would listen to Q he know’s what he’s talking about.
I would say raptor, but apparently since my opinion is no longer welcome Im just gonna not speak.
I’d go with what Jayyo said. I would go for the Raptor.
Raptor all the way. It is very smooth, almost vibeless, has 2 removable caps for different weight, feel, play, 2 extra sets of response pads, comes in many colors, has 2 nice laser engravings on the sides and very grindable. It may seem to be over-sized, but not too much. Fits nicely in your hands. But it is bigger than the Dv888 as the Dv888 is very small.
Dv888 is not a bad choice but I tend to feel that Raptor is smoother and people claim that too.
