Wow,
That's actually so cool! They remind me of DEOS sticks (with the j-bullets compared to the removable Deos bottoms). The J-bullets add weight to where the string comes out from the bottom so you can swing and hook them without even having to pull either end? I can imagine this being the evolution of "pull the string" tricks and looks like a much more efficient way to get the bottom string to your hand. I can see Ceri Anne using these already. How do the polyamide tips do as far as string breakage compared to other typical metal ones? I'm thinking this could truly be a game changing, revolutionary design!
( I LOVE how they look too btw)

Hi, thanks for support! I appreciate your interest.
It is only possible to get the J-Bullets out by swinging the stick (as seen on this video ). The J-Bullets have many advantages – first it works as a counterweight, second, you can catch and hold it easily and third, you can play with the shape – for example this trick called Wipers .
As for polyamide plug-ins, they are doing better compared to steel ones. With J-SLIDES the string lasts for more than a month of everyday trainings.
I will be glad to answer other questions regarding J-SLIDING :)

At least for us who play things AC/DC  yoyo/diabolo way these counterweights work brilliantly with diabolo play as well. If you really want to go 'innovative you can add extra pair of sticks as a counterweights, that's where true players play.

Sorry for my awful posts years ago. I was even more anal and un-self-aware than i am now.

IMO, these look interesting but I currently don't see a reason to change from current sticks.  Good luck with it and I hope more ideas flow from it in the future.

I had this idea about 4 years ago,but it was way more simple,just tie a knot in the "back" part of the handstick.

I hope to see something cool with that!

BTW,i though about calling it Square diabolo

These look like awesome fun. Will they be made in other materials at some point? Not too keen on switching (back) to woodsticks.

The name combined with look of the handles tricked me completely though. I thought the handles would be able to be disconnected and slide freely across the stick (maybe with a twist lock at the top of them to keep them in place). I'm claiming that idea then. :-D

Thanks for both criticism and appreciation. We are really gladful that the awareness of J-SLIDING is growing so fast!
For those, who are interested in what you can do with J-SLIDES, we shot a new video, where there are combinations composed out of individual tricks. We hope you will like it  :)

Tomas, would you be interested in sending one pair of sticks for Finnish Diabolo Festival (FDC, www.fdc2015.org) for players to try? I'm thinking we could have it for everybody to try in the gym and give it as a prize for somebody at the end of festival?

This way you would get some more easy advertisement for J-Sliding.

What do you think?

Hi Marko,

I appreciate your interest! Our sponsored J-SLIDER and Jugglequip Team Member Graham Milligan will be present on FDC, he will have a pair of J-SLIDES with him so you can try them and J-SLIDES will also be a prize in one of the competitions. I hope that you'll like them and that we will push the boundaries of juggling with diabolo  :)

Nice! That's even better, don't have to mail anything and will have a player present who has used then!  And thank you for helping in with a prize!
