DV888 good or bad


#1

I have heard some good things and some bad things about the dv888 and was wondering what you thought. I know I will get some different opinions, as is the case with yoyos, but I just want to see what the majority is.


#2

Plays like it should for the price. Everything else is just meh. Shape isn’t that interesting, nothing special about it.


#3

It’s pretty amazing. It’s one of my favorite factory metals. You can’tgto wrong with getting one. That being said, get an hour.


#4

I’m a big fan of my dv888, it’s an excellent pocket throw that can really stand up to some higher end yoyos.


#5

It’s good but it plays like a rock on a string.


#6

What was the difference between the 888 and the dv888?


#7

yep


#8

yup to that too!


#9

I’ve played around with both a little bit and i think just about everything is different. The 888 is smaller, different shape, includes hubstacks, and is super smooth. I dont know why they fool people about their relation with similar names.

dv888 plays good for the price, I had a dv888 with a trifecta and i really liked the set up. they’re a little vibey and mine had a factory blemish which wasn’t very cool. for the money I would say go higher end used in b/s/t .


#11

the dm2 also seems a little more versatile in comparison to the dv888


#12

Learned on the dm2. Love it, just not a pocket throw and always out and about. For me the dv888 is a nice portable. I threw a KK in mine, it’s my go to. On my belt or in my backpack for work. Best part it’s cheap I beat the crap out of it and can be easily replaced.


#13

Going to go ahead and say that I disagree with everything scribbles just said.

I’m going to be different than everyone so far and say I still love throwing my dv888. I’m usually throwing an addiction or superstar, but it always just feels comfortable and fun to pull out the dv888. I find it easy and fluid. No it’s nothing special, no stacks, straight up shape, etc. I just love it because I’m smiling when I throw it again. :stuck_out_tongue:


#15

I’m sentimentality attached to my DV888 because it was my first unresponsive throw. I still get a smile out of it every time I throw it.

I’m really not a fan.

A few years ago it was one of the very few metals available at that price point. Now there’s a bunch of throws to choose from, from brands such as Duncan, God-Tricks and Shinwoo. Not to mention the much cheaper Magic YoYo brand, which I’d prefer to a DV888.

I like the DV888 but I would go for a Di Base.
