Any chance we can hear the history of the 888 after the first '08 888? I'd be quite interested, there's a lot of editions here I've never heard of and now really want.

The point at which the original tooling broke would be handy to know as well, as after a point the weights of each run started varying, and I believe the 1st run aquas are the "original" design, and the premium aquas were heavier, or with a different weight distribution. Ben said in another thread about the tooling breaking, and this forced them to redesign the 888 to become consistent again, and hence the 08 888 was born.

I have a "Purplicious 888" Small Bearing. According to a few uses of the search engine, only 40 were made. Will be taking HD pics soon.

Any one know any more about this yoyo?

I will hope to be getting an 888x and I would like to buy all of ben's yoyos for about $100,000.No, but i think it would actually be cool if someone compiled a list of probuction runs for al the YYF's. Not fancy info that ben inclided, but just the runs.
