How often do you buy new diabolos?
« on: July 23, 2018, 09:19:02 am »
 I have my epics for 5 years and was thinking recently to buy new ones. How often do you buy new diabolos?

I buy multiple diabolos but just because I want to have a new model, for collection and knowledge purposes. I have never considered: 'ok, it is the time to change for a new diabolo because the old ones are old'.

depends on my motivation to buy new ones. i bought my taibolos at EJC 2011, and then this year i bought myself evos.
if something interesting comes around, i might buy it. but never because i feel like my diabolos are too old.

I bought my epics 5 years ago too and they are still working nice. I also have some taibolos, vision and finesse that sometimes I use. So I have enough diabolos for now  8)
How often do you buy sticks? I use carbon for some years but they break so fast and now I use aluminium again  and the last longer :)

I use DEOS and have to buy a pair per year because they become too flexible with time. I think this pattern is very much widespread. I wonder if Trash's DEOS were becoming flexible this fast...

deos never change anything because they have money if you must buy new fast again

like: never.

bought my circus more than 7 years ago and still have them working perfectly fine...
I don't use it as much as the hardcore jugglers here but even if you juggle a lot I believe you can keep your props for a long time.. unless a car hits it or something...

I haven't bought a new diabolo out of necessity since I learned 2d and needed a set of matching diabolos.

Similarly, I haven't changed the string on my red Deos sticks in about 3 years.

once a car hit one of my diabolo capeta (a brazilian brand) and it got really ****ed up... bent and unstable when spinning, but these have thinner cups than henrys.
anyways:

you're right. usually diabolos are quite immortal. remember: it's plastic: no need to buy more if you're not juggling more than this number.

(having different diabolos for practices or for stage may be fine imo, though)

Every now and then. Only because I want to try new models (even though I don't practice like before so it has been a while) because I'm pretty much "stuck" with diabigs, they're not made anymore (I have broken a couple granted that was the Yoho braned ones), and there are no other diabolists near me to borrow props to try from.  It's effectively "buy to try"...

Is it good?

if the diabolo is good now? probably. I gave to a friend.
if it was a good brand to use? not the best, but good enough to learn :)
