With the recent release of the 888GT, I am wondering if there are any plans on bringing back the 888 itself. It is personally one of my favorite yo-yos. After seeing your short gyro flop video using it years ago, I was a bit obsessed. I’d love to see it come back. Especially a small bearing variant. I understand it’s very niche these days, but a guy can dream!
Yes! Seconded, Thirded, Fourth, and Fifthed! Bring the 888 back!
There was also
- 888 DNA (larger)
- 888 Mutant DNA (heavier)
I’d say the DNA is closest to a modern yo-yo, so bring that one back
Yup, I own both of the DNA variants as well.
There’s also people who swear minute differences by year make big differences in the 888. Like the magical 2007 888, I think?
08 888 November 2007 Release
Upgraded alloy, shape refinements, polycarb molded hubstacks
I’d really like to get a Higby 888!
Do all 888s come with hubstacks?
No the dv888 does not come with hubstacks.
The DV888 isn’t an 888.
I’m almost certain every A grade 888 made came with hubstacks.
I say “almost certain” because there may be some obscure release that didn’t but I’ve never seen it if it did.
The 888GT fills the request. Strongly suggest you pick one up!
You can say that again, brother. The DV888 isn’t even a yo-yo in my opinion
888 is our premium Hubstack® yoyo. (Always has, always will).
I have an 888GT and I like it… but it’s more of a Hitman / Lyn Fury shape than a typical organic 888 shape, isn’t it?
technically it’s a ConfusionGT shape with 888 styling.
I already did! A very fun throw for sure.
