Being a huge Paul Kernel can right when it dropped I had to get it but I remember it was the most expensive or close to that. over $100 for sure.
So a few months later someone was selling over 30 yoyos “buy get 1 half off” So for $75 I got a half red half gold MVP1 and a weird Grey 080808 non an odized but all the laser markings from all the 07 888s and some 08s too.
It was Small Bearing, had dice stacks, a nd used old school Black Kentaro Pads, gl finding those now lol. I have it to my gf, well my recent ex. It was like 73grams where the other 09s were 76grams.
Remember those shiny 888s they sold out so fast a every engraving like red orange well Japan had a Black one that was small bearing. This one was coated but not anod ized. Never seen one like it before. And for $32.50.
Okay sorry the MVP1. It was very very fast spinning but hurt your hands, and if it bit the string watch the he’ll out!!!
That sucker slum forever though, great for learning and trying sideways tricks. The glassy finish I wasn’t a fan of.
MVP2: I had the 6061 version so that’s why it felt lighter but set not even close to as solid as the 1. Mine was Black w purple splash (traded the mvp2 for an iPod which I have to my ex again grrr) This MVP2 had more damage so I brought it with me quite a bit more.
If I remember right MVP1: $94.99
MVP2 6061 ($89.99 ?)
MVP2 6061 Splash ( $97.99)
MVP2 7075 ($109.99)
MVP2 7075 Splash ($114.99)
Also special Editions I remember
MVP2 7075 Paul Kerb el Cherry Edition (125 or 130)
Idk was too airy for me and prices dropped fairly fast I think I traded a Blue Shutter w a couple d marks for that MVP2. So th e retail price of them cut in half
MVP3 at its price point I wanna try but still I a m a cheapass. Even though it’s half price I still will probably save up and trade hopefully a $50 throw for an mvp3 and horizon
Any takers I got an alien galaxy shutter?? Haha
