I believe suns and FIXED fly's are very similar.
Fixed Flys have less durable cups but apparently are better for doing multiple diabolos high.
Sun's are very similar to fixed fly's but have more durable cups, and are heavier, so better for shuffling multiple diabolo's low, but take more strength and energy.

But don't trust me, i have only tried bearing fly's and have not tried suns.
Thats just things compiled from what i've heard.

I just received my aluminium axles from Nev.  After pounding out the one way bearings my suns now weigh in at 257 grams!!!  At this weight I would have to say they are my favorite diabolos on the market.  Anyone looking to drop the weight should look into these.

Bump!
If any Aussie folk want some Sundia Clear Suns or light kits, let me know ASAP and I'll get you some (by PM).
Or other Flys and Suns.
Sundia also now make a lighter weighted model of the Sun as well!

hmm, he didn't tell me that. Maybe they are finished? I'm curious to see what they done to it. Personally I like the current weight. I don't think I'll be buying any for this order...in a couple of days (unless someone in oz wants one).

So Sundia's starting to develop their diabolos more? Any development or modifications for the Flys coming up? Suns?

Hello

I've just reduced the crystal sun price to the same as the regular colour suns.

In addition you can now order all of the suns as standard with the choice of Metal washers 290g or plastic washers 275g (the nicer looking Sun plastic washer not the fly ones).

The new 260g suns will be a similar price when they arrive.

Hello

Have been looking at getting some new diabolos and am definately going to get a couple of suns for some LED's.  Any idea when the lighter suns will be available, look forward to that.

Sorry to bump, but I'm out to get a third Sun diabolo and I'm unsure of the colors...

I have 2 Green suns right now, which look nice, and I'm thinking about using my third sun to make 2 mixed-color suns, what are good looking colors to mix with green, in people's opinions?

I have a White fly, which looks awesome, do white suns look like white flys, color-wise? If so, I might get a white sun and forget about mixing cups, unless white+green looks good.

So yeah... help would be much appreciated  ;D

As I understand it, white suns pick up marks from other coloured suns like white walls in a room full of kindergarten kids with crayons.

Oh, noes:(

Does that include green? Can anyone confirm this?
My green Suns, to me, don't feel like the kind of material that would stain another...

Anyways, how do white Suns look in comparison to white Flys?

The last, and only time, I tried mixing my sun's colours up was when I first got my black and white sun and they went completely off balance - the white and black cups weren't actually the same weight. For the few minutes I suffered while playing with them in that mode, they did nothing turn out of alignment. It would be a rotation or two, then correct - rotation or two, then correct - etc.

Maybe it's changed since then.

I honestly don't remember what my white sun looked like anymore, since its a sufferer of picking up marks from my black suns :P. It was shiny for a time, but, like most suns that get used a lot, they tend to lose that shine with constant practice.

So what (different) colours would be least likely to mark each other?

Anybody know which Suns weigh around the same?

And has anybody got any experience with green+white Suns?

Nev, you should do some testing, granted you still have loads of Suns lying around.

Honestly, after hours and hours of practice with these they're very nice. Unfortunately I don't like the groove on the axle, "extra wide for multiple wraps," and also horrible for when the diabolo is tilted, because then the string can sit on top of the axle and the diabolo will tilt worse AND turn, very, very, very annoying.
