The evolution of the Finesse Diabolo is going on
« on: February 16, 2008, 05:43:53 pm »
I was asked in the past often whether I could make a similar form of axle kit
for the Finesse Diabolo as the Ultra Leicht Kits have with the Circus Diabolo.
Now the new axle kit for the Finesse is available.
Here a sample with white hubs




It will be also possible to get them in black, more photos will follow soon

Nice work!
They look really good and very well made.
How much do they weigh with the kits on and are they easily attached?
Im going to assume you will be selling these, so how much would they cost?

Thx

The weight of Finesse with them is 246g.
also the width is affected, they add 7mm width.
I mount often diabolos so for me it is easy,
but I could give a description to sellers how it works.
The price will be 16,5 Euros.

They look ugly :D
Looks easier to play though, a reason I normally don't like finesses is because they're too narrow in the middle, this seems to fix that (as well as wide-axle kit). nice work.

I agree with the two above me. But very well made.

nice job jurgen, very proffesional looking as always but ive drifted away from the old classics since trying bearings.

i was thinking when i chucked my fixed axle on my fly instead of bearing and tried to put it on my finesse, wouldnt it be cool to make a hub to fit onto the fly bearing thats made for the finesse.

i know i would by converter hubs if someone made them.

daniel, sorry for offtopicness

You made Finesses look even more weird JC, well done :D How do they play then? I guess the feeling might be quite close to a circus with your kits am I right?

the feeling is good when I play with them,
similar like the Circus with the Ultra Leicht Kit,
as you assumed. I think someone who likes them
on the Circus will also like them on the Finesse

if finesse can look like this, and work like this, then i may actually like finesse, i have one of these kits for a circus, and i love it, maybe it could improve a Finesse.


i must say though, i ill always back circus rather than finesse :P :P :P

Hah!  Indeed.

JC, are you familiar with Diabigs/Yoho jumbos?  I think they could really benefit from PTFE replacement hubs (standard width), but I don't know how possible or difficult that might be.  I'm just thinking out loud, but I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

if anything it should be easier to do with diabigs due to the hubs being more like a washer than a hub, i reckon that kit of a diabig would be amazing.

being a fan of the circi with this kit on, i expect these will be beutifull, and with the option of weight kits they should appeal to a wider audience too

very well done

@Legault, putting out fire with gasoline...perhaps you don´t know this,
here was a discussion about this in the past;-)


@Dave, I´m not so familar with the YoHos, but one possibily for these ones is to replace
the big heavy metal washers. At the last diabolocamp in Germany we changed it against
an other smaller washer. You could try it with one of the brass washers from a Circus Diabolo
