I think flys look great, their smooth and glossy.
Finesses dont look very professional to me, and since this is a fly vs finesse forum, its quite fair to judge a bearing vs a nonbearing, if your comparing a fly and a finesse

Why the hell do we have a topic with 3 pages of people saying that the finesse sucks/rules?! I'm sure there are a lot more interesting topics to discuss. It's a matter of personal preference, so please leave the arguing behind and let it to rest.

well..as a bearing diabolo user i would like to say bearing diabolo is totally not good for 2d,it's hard to get the feeling if you are using bearing diabolo for 2d.

Well, i found the string i was using makes a huge difference in my liking.
I just got 25 meters of henrys yellow, and wow.
It actually made the finesse slippy!
And when i put ivory soap on it...
Then it was just perfect..
They still cant hold too much spin and arent great for vertax though...

No.  You're not great at putting a lot of spin onto them.  And they're not great for Vertax?  Have you seen any Sharpes videos lately?

im more of comparing then to bearings.
Also, There fine for vertax Passing.
I just dont find them great for stuff like vertax double genocides, continuous vertax suns, and vertax bounce genocides.
As well as ufo's because my g3s have the curved in rim, makes more then a one second ufo pretty impossible.

I'm not all that keen on Finesses, but that's because of the relative narrowness and the angle of the curve of the cups.  I also used to dislike the weight, but my preference changed on that one.  They're not my preferred diabolo, but none of the reasons Legault is criticising them for make any sense, so I corrected him.

To join the debate... Flys hurt SO much more when they hit you, it's not really a deciding point when buying them, but finesses bounce off you slightly more. I now can't see out of my right eye and will be playing with my trusty g2s for a few days before my flys are forgiven...

Maybe you should go to the hospital? If you can't see out of your eye... then that's bad...

Haha, all those posts from Olive's to Miesta's were the best :D.
I'm seriously laughing my ass off!

Ahem... On topic...
Based on Olive's results, we can assume that Flys are made of harder, tougher material.
So don't go hitting your eyes with Flys, stick to using the Finesse if you wish to.

No harshness meant on you, Olive ;)

I was showing a pretty student some simple tricks at the Leeds Uni club the other night (tempted to leave this post at that :P )

We were working on magic knots and I wanted to show her how you could force floor bounce form one. I wasn't too sure how well flys bounce (and I haven't done this trick in about 4 years) so I gave it P for plenty and managed to bounce it high enough to catch her under the chin.

So they bounce quite well.

awesome i bet she was well impressed, as far as fly/finesse i prefer the tough love a finesse can stand
sorry for my bad grammer
