are you ever worried that the light kits will break in the bag if it gets jostled around?

i lost a washer for one of the screws, and i tried not using either washer, it seemed to attach fine.

i tried it just using one washer, and the other one wouldnt even go in actually. im afraid to do it washerless, i dont want the shock of drops to kill it

I got a MB diabolo bag for xmas.. It'll hold 2 circuses/finesses easily, or 3 circuses if you persuade them in sideways. Also has 2 stick holders on the outside (no string tangles :-)) and has a smaller pouch on one end that I keep string, soap, emery cloth, scissors, lightkits (and the other usual stuff) in.


what would you need soap for?
some people think they are better because they can do something better

Probably for rubbing on Henrys string to make it more "grippy" as it is very slippy when you first buy it.

I saw at a MB store a bag that is exactly the same as the 2 diabolo one but you can fit 4 finesses in it ;)
I'll try to get a photo

I love the way i can just throw my diabolos into my backpack and off i go!
I have a pair of skate pants and work pants that have a Diabolo string pocket! Kinda like how kids in comics are depicted with slingshots but the pocket is on the side, thinner than a cargo pocket, but deeper than a normal pocket.

Eastpack standard : 3 diabs and sticks, a good load of balls, socks, too small for clubs though :/

OK, I think I found another possible option for carrying your stuff.  I was at a local sporting goods store wasting time and wandering about, when I stumbled across a bag made for baseball players.  Made by NIKE and costing about $24.  I didn't have my stuff with me to give it a try, but it looks like you could easily store 3 or 4 diabs, 3 or more clubs, plenty of balls, and possibly some devil sticks.  The bag is long to accommodate baseball bats, this making room for clubs and such.  It is also bigger at the bottom than at the top, so you can put your shoes and mit in there as well.  I hope to buy one soon!  I hope this makes sense.  Randy

yeah, i was actually gonna use my baseball bag (from high school) but heh, it's pretty dirty from lugging it to lots of practices and keeping my dirty crap in there. but yeah, i've been thinking of getting a new bag like that, with pockets and whatnot. i hate having all my props mixing it up in one pocket...

what i'm wondering is do most people use carry bags designed specifically for diabolos, or other carry bags that happen to work (so far it looks like more people don't get diabolo specific bags.

most people dont get diabolo specific bags because first of all, they are way expensive, and secondly, most people do other props besides diabolo.

See, this is my issue.  I have a holdall that will hold most of the equipment I like to use and I fill it when I do workshops and stuff.  But the fact that it's all sorts of props from balls, rings, diabolos, yoyos etc, they all jostle together and never stay together as you packed the bag making it funny shapes and hard to carry.  Especially with yoyo strings, diabolo string and handsticks, they love to mix it up.

I always think I'll make a bag, but I know the canvas nylon and stuff is gonna cost more than I want to pay for it...  Firetoys seem to have some new bags on their site that I've not seen before.  Look similar to the MB ones though.
