That's great but there's no information about any of their products on the site.  What's the point?

Julian :?

They finally have something online!! You can e-mail them about questions you have. In the future I guess there are gonne be products online, and as it looks a e-shop. Well, whatever... it has been down for a long time, give me a break  :lol:

the light kits are probably up there because i think they're being redesigned. I ordered some back in november from butterfingers and first of all they said there was some problem at the factory but last week  they said they still haven't come because they're being redeisgned or something. Anyone else know anything about this?

Such a long time for such a sucky website...
Not a single valuable information, and the webdesigner even put the admin login at the front page...
The distributors page only shows the countries, but not the names or addresses...
I'd rather wait longer and have a full functional website...
Come on, its not that expensive to hire a programmer, I'd make their website in exchange for some free equipment...

Haha... since when is "Quebec" a country?  Did they separate from Canada without our knowledge? :lol:

Distributors: "Africa, Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, Columbia, Israel, New Zealand, Peru, Quebec and the USA."

Finally!

But they still have alot of work to do. The page is slow and not the nicest page I have seen. I hope they will add posibility to order direct from them over the internet like Henrys. But it is still better than a bunny and a snowman.

Maybe they had problems drawing chichens and easter eggs, and decided to make the page instead of making another drawing.

I had a good laugh about Quebec too Sean.  Maybe we should tip them off that it's actually Canada, not Quebec.

Quebec a country?

I can understand (almost) an oversight like listing Quebec instead of Canada if the only Canadian distributor was from Quebec, but Higgins Brothers sell Mr. Babache products in Ontario, as well.  I know that they are getting their orders directly from Mr Babache and not just reselling from others, either.  Oh well, maybe it will be corrected when the site goes live for selling directly, online. (Hopefully soon)

Someone told me that the redesign will be that the light kits light up as the diabolo spins so when the diabolo is not spinning it wont light up(is that good or bad?)

apparently the light kits are gettin redesigned as the old one broke too often (i know i snapped the leds off mine pretty soon)

the new sticks are going to be plastic which will make them flexible. i was told they dont feel very nice with multiple diabolos..... maybe thats the power stick??

i think the ratchet axle is not being made any more they had problems with too much heat from the friction or somethin. its a shame i wanted one!

It says on the butterfingers site that the re-design for the light kits includes a recharge feature. Quite handy really. Lets hope they get rid of that nasty big green circuit board vibe though :D
Peace

Yeap, spin the diabolos too quickly and the LEDs break. :(

Um, this is 'old' news, right? They were originally going to be an acrylic material but have been changed to aluminum. The acrylic ones were too flexible. The aluminum ones are great. Have a look at: http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=89

As far as I know the ratchet is still in development. Did you get this information right from Babache recently? There were rumours of problems with heat but I believe they still intend to release them after some further engineering.

on the topic of the finesse attachments getting to hot, has anybody else noticed that the wide axle tends to get quite hot when you speed it up alot and do fignergrinds and such?

I noticed the axle got very hot from high speed lifts. Explanation:
Turning fast, means a lot heat.
Then breaking down from friction, get a lot hotter. Also it slows down obviously, what means the axle first catching air at high speed is now not catching so many air, so temp will rise up. C&C on this theory please.

Yes, the Finesse wide axles do get hot when they're spinning fast on your finger. That's not a big problem though. :)

Is it easier to use 2 diabolos when they have the finger grind kit?

not really Ed as it makes them more unstable. You get less problems with wrap ups however and they do help with some tricks. I think Sean has some thoughts on this in the equipment sticky and here, basically I think its what I just said. You want to be comfortable with two first IMHO.
