Play for keeps – eight8eight

Designed for YoYoFactory Contest Team the eight8eight was the 'it' yo-yo of 2007.  In terms of manufacturing it ushered in a new era of quality and precision in manufacturing for YoYoFactory in response for customers' demands for absolute perfection.

 

While the G5 narrow profile offers great access to the hubstacks, the 888s wide body and diameter cater for more traditional 'single A' play. The addition of hubstacks does NOT, for even one moment, detract from the smooth spin and string play, but opens the door to more play options.

 

The eight8eight has continued to become one of the best selling modern high end performance yo-yos ever. In Novemeber 2007 the '08' edition was released which uses a higher quality alloy and slight refinements to continue to offer you the player the best available.

 

The performance possibilities of the eight8eight were highlighed with 4 national titles being won on the eight8eight including the USA national champion in 2007 Yuuki Spencer who also took out the 2007 World Yo-Yo Contest 1A title on an eight8eight. The eight8eight was also selected by the American YoYo Association as its 'Yo-Yo of the Year' in 2007.

 

Many special edition eight8eights have been produced and for information on them visit the 888 gallery
