66Percent - The legendary 888 meets the 66% line!
From 66 percent: The 888 has finally been added to the 66% family, and it’s one of the most important models since our launch! The 888 has been one of the most cherished and collected models from YoYoFactory, and a goal of ours to add to the 66% line since we began.
The 888 was a pioneer in it's time. A unique metal yo-yo with a hub stack mounted on a slightly smaller body, it has become a bestseller and has become a driving force behind the spread of full metal yo-yos. For the 66% 888, the hub stack part uses the same parts as the original. As a result, the silhouette is slightly different in appearance, but we couldn't make an 888 without hubstacks!
During the prototyping stages we decided the yoyo becomes too small when reduced by 66% (33 mm), so we went with a 38mm diameter instead of the true 66%. This makes it much more playable and enjoyable without compromising performance. In addition, we decided to include high quality size A size bearings made by NSK micro for the hub stack bearings to give the 66% 888 a long smooth spin when holding the stacks.
