The 888 marks the beginning of a revolution. Until very recently, full metal yo-yos were more of a novelty than high skill competition yo-yos. In 2007, YoYoFactory’s design team decided to change the way metal yo-yos were viewed. The goal was to create a metal yo-yo that offered such drastic performance improvements over all other yo-yos on the market that it would become the new benchmark in modern yo-yo performance. It’s machined with the same accuracy that is used in the aerospace industry and spins so smooth, you can barely feel it spinning!
