Posted:Hello
I have seen from various threads that quite a lot of people do fire Diablo.
Well, my bloke does a little diablo sometimes and I was thinking of maybe getting him a fire one.
The thing is, there are lot's and they all look the same.
I don't know because I don't do it.
But does anyone have an opinion on the different types?
Like which is best.
Some time ago I saw one which had a rubber outside and a metal inside. I thought they might be good for if it hits the ground, but now I can't find them. Wern't they no good? Or what?

Posted:They dont sell that type as it had a tendency to break. I personaly havn't tried many fire diabolos but the one i have the comet is very nice. Its the 34 one on firetoys. There doesnt seem to be that much of a diffrence in the ones of firetoys apart from the shape. As he only 'does a little diabolo' i would probly go for the Invinsa as it looks like it would allow alot of error on catchs.

Thanks, Durbs
That's really sweet of you. I'll take you up on that, if you don't mind.
I take it that it's in pretty good condition, if you havn't used it much.
Also I'm assuming that it's just the Diablo, unless you are getting rid of the sticks as well. Let me know, cos I'll need to get him some sticks & string.
Let me know if you are still into selling it and we'll sort out the details.

He's pretty good at the bit he does, he could probably get really good, but he don't really put in enough time. He likes fire though, and it might get him practicing a bit more.

Posted:If you talking Fire Stuff
I think when you say rubber you mean 'Fire resistant Polymer!!!'
(Rubber abit of a melter under high temperatures!!)
I sell lots of Fire Equipment - and I presume your talking about the 'Meteor' - I have the Black, the red/yellow and the Blue/red/white wierdness, plus the stix and Kevlar string etc.. along with anything else you might want.
Pm me if you want anything

Posted:Thanks,
Yes, polymer, not rubber, I was just being discriptive. (incorrectly, of course!)
I think Durbs might be selling me a second hand one. If that don't happen I'll be in touch.
thankx

Only thing I don't have is the little re-fuelling squirty bottle thing - www.firetoys.co.uk sell this though.
