So ever since it came out in 2007 the 888 has always been one of my favorite throws. I know some of you are tired of it and the yoyo industry has advanced quite a bit since 2007, but still I love them! Since there are so many different models and colors I think it would be dumb to own 2 of the exact same color and I will never be able to afford or be able to find every single colorway from every single year ever made but I do have almost all the years starting from 2007. Its the one throw that I have the most of by FAR!
SB 2007, LB 2007, Rare Hardcoat 2008, ???, 888x, 888.11
I am wondering if anyone can help me with what the 4th one I have labeled as ??? is called. I got a really good deal about 2-3 months ago, he said its a 2008, it is quite a bit shorter than all of the others, same diameter, small bearing, with dice stacks. I was thinking it was a 2008 888w (highwall?) but I remember on the 2007 888w’s the whole point was to make it even lighter. This sucker weighs in at around 67.5 grams, that is with the dice stacks and I am not sure if they came that way or someone added them after they bought it. Anyways it has very cool laser work on it, pretty much every single graphic that was on every special ed 888’s in 2007-2008.
Artwork on the inside. (alot on the rims as well but didnt want to take a bunch of pics to show it all around!)
The inside, small bearing with pads instead of silicone. It looks like it was chopped so idk?
Thanks for the help, been trying to search for the model online and had no luck! Im sure someone who knows alot about yoyos could help me out =).
