I can highly recommend a Henrys Beach, it's what got me into all this juggly type stuff(or a radical fish if you can get your hands on one but I think they've stopped making them). I can't remember where I got mine from, long time ago now, and I seem to recall that trying to find 'tinternet sites selling them was quite hard...

ah just remembered where I got it from. Kite shop in Edniburgh called....er....Wind things methinks...

"Lowest from" implies that it rates on a scale worthy of including good jokes, like puns (yay puns!!) and genuine misunderstandings like Three's Company do every episode...

To me, racist jokes, and nasty ones, like practical jokes that hurt people physically, don't even qualify on the scale, they are sooooo much lower than the lowest form of wit..

(jeez, turn into a Dad and go all heavy)

Henry's are good, as are Mr Babich.

Radical fish made a diabolo? I don't think they make them now...

just to clarify
racist jokes....bleugh..oh dear.
babach...er...babache metinks.
Sarcasm...as the saying goes..lowest form of wit....highest form of intelligence
lighting fatts?...okay I'll stop there

Mr Mech..alu sticks for your first..only the finest hey? the best I have is low friction hish spin nylon(i think), great for grinds but too heavy for suicides etc..

anyway...enjoy. and if you ever do see a radical fish Diabolo about please please PM me, as I've been after one for ages. They stopped making them cos they couldn't get the right sort of plastic I heard..ther were rumours that they had secured another source and were going to start mauifacturing again but I ain;t seen owt to prove it.

...really must got to bed now...laters

Henrys Circus
Or this new Taibolo (the lighty version)

I bought from https://www.diabolomoves.co.uk/diabolos/store/comersus_index.asp

I invested in a couple of Sundia Suns with the plastic washers- really rate them. Previously I had a couple of early Taibolos which were really not great- they weren't balanced and they would unscrew, so catching one cup when the Diabolo was spinning would lead to the Diabolo just coming apart- nightmare!

Are you getting fancy sticks? I have Sundia carbons, really really good smile

Just to summarise, your saying it's between the circus and the finesse... as i feared, one of the nastiest debates around.

As far as sticks go, i currently have the (I think) Henry's aluminium ones. they're quite thick and the ends have a habit of unscrewing however it does use alot less string and they're going to last forever. but i think it's time to get some new ones so you say the sundia carbons are good, i might give them a shot.

Thanks alot!

I use Finesse's and Henry's Short Carbon Fibre sticks.

Finesse's are the best for add on kits. The LED kits are cheap. There's a choice of axles, etc.

Circus Diabolo's are slightly heavier and larger.

well, I bought the orange finesse with red light kit and some new string. I'm looking at those henrys sticks, maybe in red..? Firetoys don't do them so i think i'm going to have to get them from diabolomoves. But that's for later, i've spent enough for a bit. Aluminium sticks for a while longer...

laugh3 how old was this thread! I'm gonna ask step if he knows where that Diabolo is now...

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.
