Need new sticks and a new store
« on: November 28, 2017, 04:58:49 pm »
i need a new set of sticks but i dont know what to get anymore, i want something that has grips that arent very foamy. With foam i feel the sticks bounce out of my hands more ofter. I have a set of babache sticks that are aluminum have had them for years


On a second note, who sells diabolo gear in the USA online ??? and also has an organized and easy to use site

Hi there, welcome to the forum!

Unfortunately I have no idea of stores in USA, but Chris will probably be able to let you know. In the mean time, about what to buy, I always playes Babache Extreme with foam, and I love them. Then I needed to buy silicone ones, and I think they are better in general. Better grip, less bounce on the hand, slightly slower flight, because silicone is heavier.

I found a sample in ebay

Renegade Juggling is a great store, they have a lot of diabolos and handsticks. They even have Play, which you would probably like since you don't like the foam cushion (it has silicone grip). They're located in Santa Cruz California... actually I go in store sometimes hahaha.

Anyway here's a link for their diabolos

And specifically for handsticks

Also shameless self advertising... if you want LED diabolo sticks I manufacture them based out of the USA as well

Best,
