Wow before I posted, barnsey's message was half finished — after I posted my post appeared before his and his was finished.
I've never seen that before ^_^.

That may have been my mistake, I'm not sure.  I started typing one, decided to change a bit, and found that somehow it had posted the first version in teh meantime.  The forum software seemed to go a bit bumpy at the same time too.  But yeah, you didn't imagine it - I posted before and after your post then removed the first one.

58 total votes out of 1970 (current as of this post) members is only 0.03% of the population. I think that it's a little presumptuous to say there are any changes in trends with only that amount of people voting. So, to say there are any shifts in trends will have to have a vote where more people actually take the time to check off their favorite diabolo.

In my opinion, Finesse are winning because if you don't like them stock. You can modify them to suit you..

More weight
Wider Axle
Hubstacks
Bearing
And they'll last longer than crocodiles or ****roaches.

You could say more or less the same thing for many of the other popular diabolos - just as much for circuses, mostly for flys (except the last longer part). The hubstacks are a bit different, but those are new and adaptations may be coming.

Granted, the add-ons for the finesse are marketed better than the rest.

Oh, I don't know.  That irritating bunny they use in their advertising artwork is nearly enough to put me off buying Mr B stuff all by itself!

For the last 2 years we have been running a poll on people's favourite diabolos. Since that poll was started, a number of new diabolos have been released. Further, it will be interesting to conduct a poll each year and be able to track how preferences change over time.

If you're interested, vote for your favourite diabolo, and if you wish, add a short message about why you prefer that diabolo.

You have 1 vote and won't be able to see the running total until you vote. This poll will expire Dec. 31st 2008.

Flys are the best! They aren't light or heavy, they move smoothly in close body movements and the bearing axle is supreme! Oh and the 1 minute finger grinds are immense!  But the cups get scratched up in seconds...

Finesse G3 is great too for its weight, invincabilty and general use.
Reality is an illusion caused by a lack of alcohol.

I'll vote once I get Fly(s), I'd usually swear by my Finesse G3's, but I haven't tried anything comparable to them yet, just a Yoho fixed axle, a medium harlequin, a Babache... Millenium? and a Medium Radiant.

I own all of those  apart from the radiant, that's what my friend uses.

My finesses are starting to feel a bit sluggish now that I'm doing 2D, unreactive or overreactive to corrections and so on, so I gotta compare them to another diabolo of the same quality level (Circuses, Flys Suns Etc.)
