MfD Prime8 vs Backstage Pass

For those who have tried both, which do you enjoy more: Mfd Prime8 or the Backstage Pass?


I personally prefer the Prime 8, but I’m a huge organic fan boy.

Either one is great and a good example of MFD.

If you were trying to choose, I’d check the profile and get the one that speaks to you most.

Out of the two, backstage pass is what I would say. Out of all my monkey finger throws, these two are my least favorite though.

The Caesar and Pixel ape are the best monkeys in my opinion.

I also love organics, but the Prime8 is kinda giving me IQ vibes based on looks.

I think the prime8 and BSP are some of monkey fingers best throws. A lot of their throws tend to have extreme weight distribution but the BSP and prime8 follow a more general weight distribution. Most MFD throws have a large amount of center weight which takes away from the actual performance of the throw but can cause them to have a more unique feeling during play. Sometimes this is good and other times it just feels kind of wrong. The prime8 and BSP have a good amount of rim weight and pretty even distribution though the rest of the yoyo.


I can see that comparison, based on the Prime 8 rims. In play, I don’t think they’re very similar. I’ve never thrown them back-to-back, though, I’ll have to give it a try later.
