Both the DV888 and Creator will be much better for learning than the One you are currently using. I started with the One, and had I not tried something else, I prolly would have given up entirely due to frustration. Crappy yoyo imho, and horrible, ESPECIALLY for a newbie. As someone else mentioned, the Sage is a great choice for a newb, but unfortunately you don’t have access to purchasing one. The Creator is a really solid investment, as it doesn’t cost much, is stable, and is easily convertible from responsive to unresponsive. Personally I would recommend it over the DV888, as I still play with my Creator, but the DV888 remains untouched, and the cost is less than half than that of the DV888. Good luck, and toss the One in the trash and get something else.
