Can they still spin in the hand like the taiwanese brands (the bottom looks sharp). If they can I would consider buying one. They look a bit on the "rough" side. How are they for stickcorrections?

Attach some small angled blades to that cup and you have yourself a mad flying machine

How about knives and you have yourself a deadly flying lawnmower ;D. Seriously though, flying blades is a good idea.

samuli männistö has got the first sample from me, and
I asked him yesterday, whether it is allowed to post the link.
He said today that it is possible if I like, but Kapis was quicker than me...
The video will be added to Youtube soon.

I like the video and the way he uses this diabolo, so I will starting them into series in the next days...

They look good. Probably more stable for normal play too?

I think it is possible to do two, but think the correction of two
is more difficult than with two normal ones. I will keep you informed about this.
Series products with the one you could see in the video would be available in
middle till end of August. The other one, which you could see on the picture are perhaps available
on the EJC in Athens.

I would definitely buy one of those black single sided diabs at the EJC. How much would you be selling them for?

This may sound really stupid but what is the advantage of single sided over normal

Have you seen the video which I posted some lines above?

@Alex
concerning the small quantity I will produce the price should be about 39 Euro.
A white version will also be available.

I did, the only advantage seemed to be the spinning on the floor.  I just wondered of there were any other tricks that make it so unique.  I do think it looks like a good model though

One positve aspect is also that you could train with this diabolo
your accuracy in the way you play.
Btw, some will not like the design, some will like it...

I have bought one single sided circus on Fdc. They are
very nice.

Can they still spin in the hand like the taiwanese brands?

Yes Tempei did that, on Fdc.

Yes, I provided some of them to Samuli before the Fdc,
he told me yesterday that Tempei took two of them to Japan :)

Is there a video where the new model (black with two axes) ? What is the second axe designed for ?

Last, is there a weight kit we could put if we use light kit with this kind of diabolo ?

I believe the point was to reduce weight...

Yes Moffett. But if you reduced weight around the hubs, but added weight closer to the edge of the diabolo.  You could have a Circus the same weight as stock, but much more stable. You could even put on a Finesse weight kit using Jurgens conversion kit.
Good modding idea I think.

Thanks JC for making these diabolos, "monobolos" as we call them now. ;) I got my
monobolos at the FDC. So i've been testing them since. They keep good balance and
i'm happy about that. Now i'm working on the trick i saw Tempei do at the FDC. Which
was vertax genocide, but instead of catching it straight to genocide you throw it to your
hand and from there back to air and to genocide... Looks really calm and it doesn't need
that fast moves.

Yea it true that Tempei took some of them to Japan. Something like five axelsets if i remember
correctly... And to the people who wonder and ask stuff. The second axel makes diabolo turn
around.

Aaro succeeded on doing three diabolo low with the monobolos, and we also got that on video.
Correcting diabolos is more difficult  when doing numbers. You must have to be accurate not to throw
diabolo on its second axel by accident.

What goes to the weight kits i think the one-sided diabolo is little bit heavier than Jürgens light-weight-kit.
But it's not too heavy for my opinion. Just that much that you can see the difference. Oh and yet one thing,
don't drop monobolo from your vertax to your toes. The diabolo comes down pretty hard. ;)

@William,
in the moment it is not possible to add a light kit to the Monobolos,
the weight of the light kit would bring it out of balance...
perhaps I will made something like that in future, but first I had to make
another prop, I promised that on the EJC...

@Marko,
Thanks for your detailed comment, but as you said be careful ;)
You should have also enough space, that you could heart nobody with it.
I have some holes now in my wooden floor, since that I play on the carpet...
Monobolo, I like that name for these diabolos, and will pick up this.

Concerning the way to play, I also mentioned that you had to play very correct,
if the string comes in the second axle you must move arround...
On the other hand I found it is a good training to play more correct, without the second
cup, and without forced centering.

Concerning the weight you are also right it is 5 - 10g heavier than a Henrys Circus with Ultra Leicht Kits.
By the way, it seems for me that the finnish Diabolo Convention was a big fun
