Anybody that agrees the DV888 and the Daydream should be on any worst yoyo list; hasn’t thrown enough yo-yos to draw that conclusion.
The DV888 ‘is’ a dated design. And amazingly; just about every single product released in 2009 is also dated to one degree or another. Time doesn’t stand still. It marches on and some designs build on what we have learned as we move along.
To me; using just the very best yo-yos you have; is not my idea of fun. My personal choice is to constantly change what I am throwing. Or at least; have an every day carry but still have a daily rotation of yo-yos at various performance levels.
Most yo-yos offer different positives and negatives. Life is much less boring if you constantly confront yourself with a challenge… like trying to do Spirit Bomb on a fixed axle. Or trying to do And Whut on a responsive yoyo.
… I think a thread about the Worst opinions would/could be potentially more accurate than a Worst yo-yos list.
Even some of the worst playing yo-yos can be fun and definitely challenging.
And for some of the guys that only have one yoyo; even if it’s the worst yoyo; it’s the best yoyo they have.
I have hundreds of yo-yos. They are not all the best playing yo-yos. But they do mostly have one thing in common. Few of them have dust on them.
My worst yo-yos list of 5: Rev-g…Rev-g… Rev-g… Rev-g and the Aerobie Aerospin.
