Fly or Finnesse...
« on: October 15, 2007, 02:49:07 am »
Hey everyone, been a bit since I've posted..
Well, I kinda took a break from diaboloing, but I'm getting back into it again. I'm wanting to start trying 2 diabolos, but I only have a Finesse and a Beach. I've also been wanting to buy a Fly diabolo for a while now, but also a Finnese so I can try 2d. But I only have enough for one. So do you think I should buy the fly and work on 1d stuff for a while, or should I buy another Finesse to try 2d?

Sounds like a question only you can answer. What would you like to improve, 1d tricks or 2d? flip a coin.

Just try and have a go on all the different diabolos and see what you like as only you know what you'll like.

Well..How much do you like your finesse at the moment?

I'd get a fly, If you like that get another if not buy a finesse.

1 diabolo ftw!

I'd say get yourself a Sun with light washers :) But that's just me, it's all personal preference mate.

O yeah, i had a question relating to flys and finesses. Are bearing diabolos any good for 2d?(Because i love them and personally hate my finesses - I have 2 finesses in basically mint condition, barely used G3's if anyones interested in buying)

I've actually tried someone else's Fly's, and based on the hour or so I tried 'em, I would say I prefer them over Finesses. But really, I'm not sure if I want to do 1d or 2d, and that's why I asked. I know I still got stuff to learn (and I'm having tons of fun with inf. suicides and genocides), but I'm afraid I'll run out of stuff (in my skill level) to do. I do really like my Finesse and all, but it just doesn't compare to the Fly. And also, I should ask the same question as legault: Are bearings good for 2d? cause I was planning the get a bearing fly, so...

It's really up to what you think you'd enjoy more.

I prefer 1D as I'm too lazy to constantly correct 2D and restart after I mess up :(
Plus 1D is more fun and easier to learn :D
2D is just a pain if nobody is around to teach you :(

Yeh, imo Bearing can be good for some 2d.   I don't like them for string control =[ Which sucks as thats my main 2d thing =[

Bearings = Less friction, More spin.  Just getting used to em.

(Only guessing flys are similar to other bearing diabolos in the feel of 2d.)

oh mate, Flys are orgasmic! I don't play with them in bearing mode anymore, maybe later. 2d shuffle with bearings is really wierd, I'm not use to it. Go the suns like Martijn said, I'm getting some crystal suns soon, can't wait!

If you must know, I used an abbreviation to emphasize the style of that sentence.

I can be quite certain when I say my posts are generally better written and proofread than yours, so don't try to be clever. I ignored looby's previous post trying to put the crime in my shoes , but it's getting annoying now. Just try to put some time in the things you post on here. Proofreading and punctuation is highly appreciated. Thanks.

A fine choice is just wait some weeks to buy both ;) or just buy a fly diabolo, as, i assume, u have already seen that a good skill on 1d is needed to go for 2d...

Feh. Flame wars are no fun and then the things that go along with it get overused and cliched (stupid flame shield quote)

Kek. Never played that silly game.
Jake told me what it meant.

Get over it.

Oh and although most would say fly over finesse. Personal preferance.

what about the sun? Only reason I ask is because it seemed like the fly and sun are about the same and the debate over which is better seemed to be inconclusive.....unless the debate was finished in some thread that didn't come up in the search for "fly sun". and "sundia sun"
