I thought my DV888 was a great beginner’s yoyo into the unresponsive world. However After getting my Shutter, I can significantly land tricks a lot easier based on it’s larger frame. The DV888 is a bit small, making it harder to land tricks! Not only that, but my Shutter is so much more smoother and sleeps so much longer. I would spend the extra bucks just to get the Shutter for a beginner’s yoyo instead of a DV888 if possible.
Just my thoughts. That’s all I have to say about my two only current yoyo’s!
