- 2 Jazz (I stars with that)
- 2 Arlequin Beach
- 9 Finesse G1 (3 luminous, 3 wide axle, 3 weight kits)
- 10 Circus ( 2 old phosphos, 4 orange for training, 4 white for stage, all teflon axle)
- 4 Finesse G2 (the same for training and stage because the keep clean)
- 3 spinadiabolos (spintastics)
___________________________

I think there is some sort of inter-bolo breeding occuring in France.  They probably have a higher average number of diabolos per head.  Maybe they're cheaper over in France, or Canada perhaps.  Ah, to be sponsored with diabolos, almost like getting your band signed or getting sponsorship for the X-games.

Hope everyone has had a nostalgic time rooting through their cupboards to find all those that you used to play with.  Though me thinks some of you just can't get enough of them (9 finesses and 10 circuses? that's just silly).  I suppose it's not the most expensive hobby in the world a person can pick up.  I remember a guy that got addicted to eating Fabrege Eggs...

It takes 24 muscles to smile, 42 to frown, and only 4 to hit someone in the face. Luckily for you, I need the exercise.

I stand by my hypothesis that they are multiplying.
Maybe he likes to share, maybe he has the money to buy new ones, maybe he likes all the colours, maybe they've worn out, maybe they come from friends and family, maybe he loses alot of them, maybe he can do 9.

Lots of reasons, personally I'd like to own 9 as well, but that's near £300 worth of rubber, phew!
