YYF Northstar or YYF DV888?

I have been trying to decide for days which one to get. I am going to use the stock bearing. The part is that, the Northstar is plastic and DV888 is metal and seems tougher. And, I want a wider yoyo, which the Northstar is. And which has smoother rims? Not on the string, but the rims. Plus, is the Northstar durable at all?


from what i hear northstar breaks real easy… i have a protostar and it hasnt broke and its had some bad hits but i havent had a dv888 so idk

And plus more people use the DV888 so that might mean something.

i like the northstar better, but the Dv888 is more durable.

I LOVE the Northstar but if you want to be on the safe side and not waist money get the dv888. i said that because the Northstar Crack’s

they only crack if you get one of the first batches. I’ve had mine practically since they came out and it hasn’t broken.by the way i like the northstar

Which has a smoother surface?

what do you mean by smoother

I mean the rims, are they rough at all?

there is no such thing as a rough rim yoyo. is there?

Some yoyo’s just sometimes suck that badly. I have like 15 of them.

oh really!!

oh yeah, one more question, why do people compare bi-metals to high end metals? is it obvious tehat all metal is better?

Yep. :slight_smile:

well why are people comparing northstar to dv888? i know northstar won 1st place at worlds but still…
