When the YoYoFactory 888 was first brought to life it made people rethink yo-yo design. For years it was the one yo-yo that all were compared to and for good reason. The 888 is the smoothest spinning yo-yo out there and its shape is incredibly comfortable and sleek.
Since the 888 was released back in 2007, YoYoFactory has made an effort to release a slightly altered version of the 888 every year. Over the years, the 888 has seen different weight distributions, large and small bearing versions, high wall versions, amongst other changes.
For 2011, the 888 is seeing one of the most drastic design changes as it brings to the table a raised response area, a wider profile, and a weight increase. For this initial release of the 888.11, YoYoFactory has brought back one of the most popular 888 concepts with Jason Lee art and a deep blue finish. This initial 888.11 Jason Lee edition is here in extremely limited quantities. If you are a serious yo-yo player this is one yo-yo you do not want to miss owning.
