Nice offer Peter!

They don't bend at all, they're just as rigid as good sticks have to be.

I have to disagree on that. If you really try to bend them in your hands, they are a bit flexible. I'd say they are about 85%? rigid. That tiny bit of flex is enough to take some pressure of your wrists (in excalibur for example), and again help to your movements be smoother.

OLOBAID - the string is between 3 and 4 milimeters; i can't really get an accurate measurement with a ruler. yeah, I think using that string is out of the question. :p thanks though

Received them today and love them.  They have a tiny bit of flex just to stop strain in vertax.  They have an excellent weight and flow nicely in stick release tricks.  They are very nice for 2d as well as 1d.  They are not too hard on the catches so are easy to lost and brilliant!!!

After reading so many interesting reviews i have only one thing to say: Bring it on baby!! ;D So Peter, Ill be sending you and email soon to get me a pair of those diamond beauties. I especially like the smooth flying and the glittering that everybody have written. I now have Mb Xtremes so i guess ill become to like the diamons even more because i like my extremes very much. ;) Oh and keep up the good work!
Peace and Love to all diaboloers!

Great advice Martijn! I'm almost sure that ill get them both because i was just looking for some cool new equipment to put my money into and I'm guessing this is it(plus the Powerisers which make me feel like a superhuman) ;D So ill be sure to send an order to Peter! Hope to see you in some conventions once i get enough money to come to any.
Peace and Love to all diaboloers!

Could someone take a photo of the diamond handsticks next to the xtremes (and the henrys aluminum if possible)? I'm considering them, but I'm finding it hard to picture how they compare in shape and size.

Here they are...
Thanks! I think I can see a wave in the handle of the henrys stick!

You've added your own tape to the bottom of the gold and diamond sticks?

David - what kind of string do you use? if it's thicker than the henry's yellow then i might consider getting the diamond sticks. (since they'll actually fit...) :)

Thewu, I'm using MB string, which is also thicker than Henry's, so don't worry about that :)

Ha yeah, those are my old and abused Henry's stick right there.

And yes, it's almost like a standard procedure for me. I did that to protect the protection caps :P For the lightsticks, the extra grip is an advantage, it's a lot easier for me to take them off the stick that way.
