@Scooby: You mean the twist set, right? My cousin bought that one just couple a days ago. But he only wanted the plastic hubs so he used the old bolt and old axle. (The set with normal axle is the same price so he kinda got the extended axle for free..) Anyways I'm seeing him on sunday and I relly wish to try henrys with extended axle.

@Sean: I pretty similiar problems with my allround sets, I couldn't get the cups tight enough. I dont know ih the bolt was too long, but I felt the problem was the small black washers. Even that they are bit thicker than the originals, they are so goddamn soft that tightening felt imposible. Now I use the stock small washers, and they work nicely.

I ordered two sets of Ultralight kits, too and will post when I've got them... Doesn't sound good, though...Hope I won't have problems

@sean

This was a very good explanation,
but I didn´t know before that the yoyo-manufacturers
more concerned this fact than the diabolo-manufacturers.

I meant to say something about this before, with the tuning kits.  Even though it makes the diabolo lighter, you still get the same spin since the more weight is at the rims than at the centre just like Sean explained.

Yoyos need the extra spin because they weigh next to nothing so heavy rims are a neccesity, diabolos not so much.  But it's still a good trait to have.

Of course I like the extra weight because hovers are easier and everything just has a bit more oomph to it than with Finesses.

yeah, but lightweight hubs combined with the Henry's cups is a dynamic duo...if only i could find Finesse style wide hubs* for my Henry's.


*what i mean by that might not be so obvious at first. go to your stock Henry's and compare it to a stock G2. the finesse doesnt have wide hubs, but they are wider than a Henry's. if i could have an ultralight kit for henry's wit that type of hubs i'd probably switch back to circuses for good.....

OK, I forgot that I wanted to reply :P , but it's the same here: i can't tighten the nuts and the diabolo unscrews after a while...So I'll have to make the bolts a bit shorter :roll:  Crazy anyway...

If you do the wrapped accelerations in the right way it works,
there is no difference between light axes like my own axe or Henrys and the old metal axe.
Additional I think with wide axes it is easier to do.

Can i ask if anyone has bought the wide axle version. And what do they think of it? In terms of control, stability and finger grinding etc. Because i'm stuck between the "Ultra leicht" kits or the henry's wide axle. Which is the overall best those who have bought them.

Ultra Leicht kits don't have a wide axle, just wider hubs (except he's made regular width kits now which look awesome) and the wide axle is exactly that like the Finesse Evo1.  I would personally go with the Ultra Leicht because the increase in performance you'll receive from having more space around the axle is much better than having more axle.

Better to have wider hubs than a wider axle in my opinion.

I got the Wide Axsle and it is great.The hubs are good and the axle is really good. Due to the wider axle you would think it is harder to control but it isnt! It is really good and easy to do finger grinds on, and is all around a good diabolo.
