Marketing?  :-\

Of all the newer diabolos they are by far the most widely available. Most people haven't tried all the diabolos. They've only been able to compare those diabolos that are available to them. I'd say Diabology has been good for MB. They come in pretty colours too!

Besides, they aren't bad diabolos... they have a unique precise feel to them. I don't think they are as good all round diabolos as some of the others, but I can see why some people really like them.

Having tried them all, I think the taibolos and suns/flys definitely excel in more areas than most others.

Yes, I also think that MB has made a perfect marketing,
the name of this marketing was Diabology,
it was a new Diabolo and additional a new dimension in playing the diabolo.

Because, it is without what you are not. ;)

Aw, snap, I like all the Sundia diabolos; traditional, mono-wheel, sun, fly, I love them all!
Oh well, since I can only vote for one, I'll go with Fly

Heh, yeah, I'd have to agree with that, since I was one of those people who saw Diabology and just had to have some finesses ::)

yeah i use finesses
i wish i could try another kind of diabolo without having to buy them first
because no one around here even knows what a diabolo is
i have to describe  it as a giant yoyo without the string attached
lol
so yeah it would be nice to try out some flys

Hahahaha I'm the only one voted for the 4" option... I still use my 2 jazz diabolos every day! Even with those small diabolo's I do stuff like vertax genocides, sprinklers, slackwhips and fans. I know it's more easy with a bigger diabolo (I really like my fly too, haha) but I really like the fact they are so small it doesn't really bother me in my small bag.

btw, I also own a really really small diabolo (smaller than the henry's Micro) that doesn't even have an axle but is made out of one piece rubber or something... I can even do a lot of tricks with that one (yesterday I even did a successful whipcatch!)

So my point is... size doesn't matter :D

Hard, all have own benefits but circus feel so nice especially with twist kit,fly's really nice but still seem kinda --strange-- as opposed to non bearing would love to try a circus with bearing - so circus wide it is!

How come I can't see the running poll till after I vote?

Seems more people like flys over suns.  Is that 'cos of the bearing axle?  What's the big hype over finesse other then all the mods?  Old school circus plays better.  AAAghhh!  I can't make up my mind.
