@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...

I think you misunderstood me. I was talking about a regular circus. By taking the weight from the diabolo with your hubs. Then using your conversion kit to put on a weight kit not a light kit. So it would be around the weight of a circus with some POM hubs (I think) but much more stable.

Seems that I misunderstand you, the weight of a Circus with my Ultra Leicht kits is 250g.
The Henrys Circus with the original POM hubs is between 250g - 270g, this dependes which orginal axle kit you use...
If you add the Evolution 4 Light Kit combined with the my Ultra or Standard Leicht Kit, the weight is 300g.
So you have the same weight as with a regular Henrys Circus.
Conclusion, the momentum of a normal Henrys Circus with aluminium hubs is not so good as the combination of Evolution 4 Light Kit and Ultra or Standard Leicht kit. The same effect (better momentum) it is with the Ultralight and the Twist Kit from Henrys (they also reduce the weight about 50g).

If you add the Evolution 4 Light Kit to a normal Henrys Circus the weight is 350g, this is very heavy...

I wasn't talking about light kits! I'm talking about WEIGHT KITS if its made for might kits, weight kits will fit also.

Oops I think all the confusion comes from me. In fact it comes from this language call english, where light and light don't mean the same thing...

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

I apologize for the weight and light in the same sentence... light kit was just a LED kit (evolution4 for example).

I think now it is clear, you could attach onto the babache conversion adapter also weight kits...

Well, if the JC for some reason can't sell for ya. Get back to me. Then I can fix you up with one.
But the better way is to pm JC first. He can give it for cheaper price. ;)

Do any of these single sided diabolos have bearing axles?

I recently got a Sundia single sider, but it has a bearing axle.  I'm having trouble getting it spinning up due to confusion.

JC's Monobolo do not have bearings and are balanced. Though I also think you can put the fixed axle kit on a bearing one sided fly.

Yeah, Eric said it. Monobolo's are balanced like diabolos. For the story how these were
created check out, http://mudflapcake.blogspot.com/ <-monobolo post.

Also buying the monobolo means you get actually two kits for you circus. Lighter and wider hubs = ultraleichtkit. Lighter normal hubs = leicht kit. So if you buy monobolo you actually get three different things. ;) Only thing you need to do is use original washers and buy some bolt for your circus, wich is really cheap. For finesse users, yes. The monobolo can be assebled with Jürgens adaptor kit for finesse. But then the weight distribution is messed up. I haven't experimented enough to tell you how to make it balanced. Perhaps someday JC or somebody else will figure out it and balance monobolo for finesse too. Mean time, we use circus (i would do that anyways, paid circus advertisement, Henry's if you hear me please send me one circus for this). ;)

I realize this is old knowledge for most of people. But i've had to explain this oh so many times trough msn. Monobolos are made from parts that JC makes. If they are stuck together it doesn't necessarily mean that they can't be separated. That's my tip of the day.

Cheers.
