The darker grey colour isn't dirt or anything, it's just aluminum oxide.  The aluminum axel reacts with oxygen and creates a dull layer of aluminum oxide.  The middle is shiny because the string polishes it.

On the learning 2d note: it is definately harder to learn with finesse.  When I was just starting to learn I tried two finesse, and two others (possibly circus). I could start a little easier with the finesse, but it fell apart quickly. Using short axels didn't make much difference.

Hi Tzee Ye.

The shop that you got the diabolos from should be able to get the axles for you.

Other than that maybe look through http://www.jugglingdb.com/vendors/ for a shop in a country near you with a good exchange rate.

i have to say finesse w/ a fingergrind extension rock.  i couldn't get my 2d shuffle when i used harlequins, but now i can do it a lot better.  also, i'm not sure if its just me but finesse w/ fingergrind extensions speed up faster for me.

I like using wide axled finesses for two diabolo shuffle.  Only problem is I really can't do long sprinklers with them... does anyone else find the two diabolos in a sprinkler go out of line with wide axled finesses?

you mean about the Evo1 equipped G2s spin up faster? actually, i second that. i get a lot more "grip" on the string. more grip = more friction = spins up faster.

no, i meant exactly what i typed.  I used to use two harlequins, and could barely do a 2-d shuffle.  As soon as i got finesse (w/ fingergrinds), my shuffle got a lot better (but i'm not sure if the fingergrinds helped, or if it was just the finesse diabolos).

well in that case...i think norbi said that because most people learn 2D easier with heavier diabolos. basically, the general consensus is that harlequin > circus > finesse as far as ease of learning goes.

o, well, i guess i'm just weird.  I have found that my excalibur is a lot better with finesse w/ out fingergrinds, is excalibur easier or harder with heavier diabolos (like harlequins or circus)?
