Well, you could say that perhaps the different kinds of dye have slight differences in weight, and you could go even further to say that no diabolo is an exact copy of another (once you go down to the molecular differences). Finally, the relative weight would be slightly off depending on where you are and how much air pressure there is/how strong the gravity is. This would also mean that diaboloing underwater would produce a change, and you must take account for the likelyhood of man diaboloing on the moon someday.

No, not really.  :-D

No (fact) - but near enough so you won't notice - otherwise they would not make them so

Like Nev and Y3K have said (Hathaway, less so), no two diabolos are the same weight or mass.  But Henrys do try very hard to make them as near as they can with negligible difference.  So go ahead and swap the cups if you want to.  You shouldn't notice any wobbles from the difference, but *if you do* you will just have to swap them back and live with it unfortunately.

Swapping cups is also a good way to prevent mistaken diabolo identity.

they'll work fine if you mix the cups or keep them solid.
