YoYoFactory - 888 Ti
The full titanium 888, made possible with a massive crowdfunding effort!
Sometime in the year 2000, YoYoFactory released the original 888, and no one realized how big of an impact it would make on the world of yo-yo. Now, a full twenty years later, they have reimagined that pivotal design in full titanium.
In a time when mainly plastic models dominated the scene, the 888 was the first metal model to really capture the attention of players, and become more than just a dream machine like metal yo-yos before then. This new version was funded through a big crowdfunding effort called "888 Forever," raising almost three and a half time their target goal of ten thousand dollars to create the ultimate version of their beloved 888.
With the small but substantial round shape of the 888 fitting nicely into your hand, the titanium body gives a huge bump in power and stability. It even has hubstacks, giving you a nostalgic way to enjoy the old gimmicks. For players that remember the good old days, it's time go back to the future in your rounded titanium deLorean, and like, save the world? Or just have a good time.
Blue/Silver half-colorway is a special version with the YoYoFactory Contest Team logo on the side.

The legend returns!
The 888 ‘forever’ project was supported by backers of our third Indiegogo campaign and is now available in very limited numbers. This is a titanium reproduction of the original 888, a yoyo that history remembers as critical to the dawn of unresponsive stock precision metal yo-yos. It was the first metal yo-yo used to capture both the USA and World Titles.
