dv888 or c13?


#1

Hi I am looking into getting my first metal yoyo I am looking into the c13 or dv888 i just want your guys oppinion


#2

The dv888 is a good yoyo. I previously owned one and traded it. It isnt exactly the most comfortable of all yoyos as it isnt easy to catch. The c13 I have played withe before and its a light yoyo and small. Its pretty good from what I have played with. I would go with either one this is a tought decision but personally, dv888

Out opinion doesn’t matter, yours does.

I would go for the Dv888, its shape is easier to get use to, the Catch 13 has a very angular shape, and not many people may like it.

But answer these questions so we know what you like in a more specific way:

  1. What size do you prefer? (Big, small, medium, etc)
  2. What shape do you prefer? (Be specific: Round Butterfly, Flat Rims, pointy shape, H-Shape)
  3. What response do you prefer? (Silicone, O-Ring, Hybrid, Pad, etc)
  4. Do you like to mod/maintain it?
  5. What weight is ideal to you?
  6. Does color matter?
  7. How does your style relate to the yoyo? (What kind of tricks do you like to do? Fast? Technical? Smooth? Slacks?)
  8. What is your price range?
  9. What is your skill level?

size=medium to large
shape=idk what shape ill just say im use to the new breed, and the x convict
response= anything besides starburst or hybrid
the only thing i usually do is put a kk inn it and shims
um for the weight somewhere between 66 to 70
any color besides green and pink
pretty much everything
price range between 60$ to 80$
skill is like expert 2 give or take a few tricks and 1 master trick


#5

I would say the Dv888 is more fit for you.


#6

Agreed. You can try one out, but both of those are undersized.

Yeah, I think the DV888 sounds better as well.


#8

oh yeah and what about the genisis


#9

I think that that would be a better choice, but pick the one you want.


#10

Go for the Dv888. :slight_smile:


#13

like when u guys say they r undersized is it smaller than a x convict or bigger


(POLLO YOYO) #14

smaller


#15

smaller? that may be to small for me
like how much smaller?


#16

A lot smaller. A few millimeters. It doesn’t sound like much, but it really is.


#17

what about the axiom?


#18

Barely bigger.

Trust me, you will get use to the size.

Personally i love the Dv888, i’ve played with both the frantic, hetic, and the c13. The c13, i feel has a weird shape, but can catch string easily and could take lots of layers of string. However i prefer the DV888 over the c13 because it plays much smoother and is on the heavier side (66g, i think?). Also i love the way it looks and the anodization is excellent, good for thumb grinds. 8) bottom line though, :stuck_out_tongue: its up to you if you like a yoyo that is small or large, ugly or nice, and feel.

What is with all these “This Yo-Yo vs. That Yo-Yo” topics lately? C’mon! Oh sorry for being off topic, dv888 by the way.
