Mr. Babache Repair Kits for Xtreme?
« on: January 10, 2007, 10:37:04 pm »
I just broke my Xtremes, so I went to get the  catolouge thing they came with, and saw that they have a reapir kit for them, and was wondering where I could find one.

Of course, but the wierd thing is that the two stores I usually order from (Jugglingstore) and Higgins Bros don't have them. Isn't a juggling store kind of obvious?

Honestly smooth, if you like the feel of extremes but not the breakage, bite the bullet and buy some g3's and feel confident in your sticks.
You might find you need an unusually long screwdriver to fit the repair ends.

I can't, because I don't have enough money.

In that case, I suggest you save up your money instead of buying repair kits and buy a pair of G3s and not have to worry about breaking them.

Alternatively, there are modifications you can make to the tips to improve them.  There's a post about using threaded metal inserts that you stick in yourself which make them pretty much unbreakable.  When I find the post, I'll try and post it, but it's somewhere in this forum, I know it is...
