That is tempting I just dont know about the B grade stuff has anyone had any problems with theres?I'm sorry to say so but, sadly it's true that bang-ups and hang-ups can happen to you.

no. I have played many and it is nothing that has wobble or anything, just vibe and ano problems, for the price you can't beat it, yoyofactory has hella high standards and is selling these rejects that don't meet those for less than half the price.
I am happy with mine.

YYF's standards are just extremely high and they wouldnt sell them at retail since they werent 100% compliant with those high standards...but you'd be surprised at the deal you get if you choose to get one...every one that I've ever seen has been easily worth more than $55 IMO...
even with the cosmetic flaws and possible stability issues, they went to the trouble of putting a B-grade stamp on them (which looks all kinds of awesome), yet they're still selling at half of retail price...
I just traded for one that's on it's way to me now and I've got it lined up to get another at Worlds...in many ways, I prefer them over the regular 888's...if you're on the fence about buying one, you really shouldnt be...you'll never get a deal as good as this on any YYF without it being completely trashed from a previous owner...

How much cost the catch 22? and what you know about that yo-yo....Lets Yo' and Roll
07-26-2008 06:57 AMTo many the concept of a $100 yo-yo is crazy. This point of crazy is about to be tested by TWO new releases coming from YoYoFactory.
The 'ultimate yo-yo' is a concept that passes and changes over time. For the longest time the ultimate yo-yo was made of wood, then plastic and then metal. The quest to find it may have included scouring antique stores, toy stores and magazines looking for that 'something better'. That seach is much easier today but it still exists. Buying, frequent disapointments and the odd satisfaction. Until recently few could claim their ultimate yo-yo would perform that way straight out of the pack. They required knowledge and tuning or modification. Recently we think we have been close to delivering many peoples ultimate yo-yo. We created something our Team players could play stock with and win World and National Titles and in a retail sense, was only rivaled in sales by our other designs. So, from the top, there was only one place to go right?
Correct, off the charts.
Performance.... also off the charts.
The downside, it costs some, and then some.
The decision you will face is what is it worth to you? You would be crazy not to want the ultimate yo-yo, but you would also be crazy to pay $500 or even $375 for a yo-yo.
That's the Catch-22, and it is coming soon.
