Posted:Ok, So I got a fire diabolo a little while ago now and I'm having some issues with the kevlar string. It seems to slow the diabolo very quickly compared to my normal diabolo string (which I appreciate is nylon so more slippy), but basically I have just about enough time to do a trick and get out of it, but no time to spare if I want to pause for a few seconds.
Anyone experienced this? and got got any helpful hints on how I could reduce the friction? ... what about putting a little oil on the string? .. or is that just a stupid idea as the whole thing gets pretty hot?

Posted:oil on the string won't work. to be honest i just use the normal diablo string i got. it works if you don't get tangled and well i haven't had one snap on me yep due to it getting burnt. the Kevlar stink got on my nerves too. although if you decide to do this, make sure to replace it often to reduce the risk of it burning and snapping. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS VERY BAD ADVISE IF YOU WISH TO SPIN IT AROUND OTHER PEOPLE, ITS NOT WORTH THE RISK.
