just out of interest, can you still buy the MB performer sticks from anywhere, as I believe they are the sticks Antonin and JiBe with the big coned end tips and wouldnt mind a pair.

Umm, HELLO!? :) Almost nobody uses the performer sticks any more. Those guys use the MB Xtremes.

In my opinion, the performers are some of the worst sticks on the market, xtremes some of the best.

Performers are super long with big heavy grips and ends that accidentally pull out.
Xtremes (although they use the same tube) are shorter, lighter, much more elegant (and have ends that don't pull out but snap with the slightest provocation).

Now, don't ever again confuse the two! :P

If you're really interested, I believe Butterfingers still have some.  I recall a guy buying some during the summer from there.  Why I don't know, people should really discuss things before they throw money away.

But if I were MB, I'd have stopped production a long time ago.  One of those, "it seemed like a good idea at the time" things.

I have some, and the only thing i found they've helped me with were 2d corrections.  I'd got my Henry's alu and not used the MB Performers for ages but for some strange reason i started using the MBs for 2d.  It made corrections with my Circus' much easier for some reason, I think because they are thicker.  After learning with the MBs it was much easier to do with the Henry's, so now i'm back to them and the MBs are sitting in a cupboard again :D

Not sure whose sticks you're talking about. Maybe Antonin's sticks? His sticks were homemade and black. They were a bit shorter and smaller than most sticks I believe. Likewise Vux's sticks were homemade. Baptiste's sticks were homemade. Was JiBe still using wood at the time? I can't remember. Everyone else's sticks were Henry's aluminum or carbon fiber if I remember correctly.

From what I can see, JiBe was still using wood with a hole in the end at the time.

Trash made his own sticks as well didn't he?  And Antonin didn't have Xtremes that long ago (was almost 3 years), definitely homemade.

Just for your information;

The Mister Babache Performer sticks were an earlier attempt at a diabolo handstick by the Swiss company.  They were overall, pretty pants for todays styles but a welcome change from traditional wooden sticks.  They did have the string coming out of the tip which was nice and the stick was hollow so would have been lighter, if it wasn't so long and the handle foam wasn't so big.

Fortunately they have now burned them all and their newest generation of sticks seem to be doing the business.
