The DV888 by YoYoFactory was released in 2009, and is based on the DV8 yo-yo by Buzz-On that, due to patent issues, was never officially released and only 100 pre-production units were made. The DV8 was so popular, however, that YoYoFactory teamed up with Buzz-On to breathe life back into this desired design, in the form of this full-metal yo-yo, developed as a more affordable version of the 888.
In 2014, YoYoFactory released an improved responsive version of the DV888 more focused on beginning players, along with an upgrade kit (sold separately) that can be used to make it into a bind-response yo-yo.
