Warning - FAKE YYF 888


#1

We have it on good authority that there is a fake YYF 888 circulating around. It has been offered for sale to at least two forum members. Here’s a few comments from members who are knowledgeable.

Finally we have this from the man who really know his yoyos.


#2

Consolidated and revised.


#3

How much was he selling it for?


#4

He was claiming that it was super rare, saying it was worth over $200 dollars. He was trying to trade it for CLYW.


#5

Lol, that’s one of the worst knockoffs I’ve seen. I would’ve sooner fallen for an Aoda Rainbow or Sunshine being rare.


#6

I agree. The screw in the middle was a dead giveaway.

Besides, I know YYF loves to engrave everything with their logo. In English.


#7

$20 is still too much for this lol, you can buy these at $4 a pop.


#8

If you can buy these for 4$, where can I get one lol?


(Jei Cheetah) #9

I know! I like that engraving there!


#10

Indeed, although it may not play that good, i do like the way it looks for sure.


#11

this isn’t really related but doughnut. If that’s bill Cosby shouldn’t he be eating jello.

Yeah that is a rather blatant knockoff


#12

But… Bill Cosby Likes Ice cream too.

#14

Seriously though, where can I buy one of these?

That has the same shape as the 888 but that screw really gives it away [color=black][/color]

There are MANY 888-based yoyo’s from the China market.
Rarely are they decent quality with the exception of Aoda and Auldey counterparts. (which I believe they do not produce anymore)

This one looks like some base-metal alloy that’s not even CNC machined.
Although there are many amazing Chinese manufacturers, it’s junk like this that throws in a bad name to majority of quality overseas manufacturers.
