If you can stack those E5's over one or two sets of weight kits, I'm sold.
Especially if they're cheap, which they ought'a be if they don't do squat.

Hmm, check out the measurements for that Tornado diab, it weights only 216 grams and is 123 mm wide, seems like it is the smaller version of Finesse..

The axle kit for the Finesse and the Tornado diabolo seems to be the same,
so the Ultra Solution Kits for the Finesse will fit also onto the Tornado diabolo  ;D

Where does it say the Evo.5's are weights? If they are, how much do they weigh?

Yup. Quite long awaited. At least 6 years is it?

DaviD, the Evo' 2 and 5 kits aren't currently in retail, I don't think.

I think I read that the official release date for the two items is April.

Looks like something new for the list.. 3 G3s with evo 5 and JC kits would go down an absolute treat!

Got my hands on a Tornado prototype last week (with one evo 5 ffs) and had a proper go of it today after I found a screwdriver.

Initial thoughts.
Nice diabolo, usable, would like to get my hands on a second as thats really how I judge diabolos. I also was using some horrible string and sticks so just had a bit of a simple play.

To get an idea of the size take a finesse and look at the side, the rim of the tornado (prototype) is basically where the groove on the flange is. the width is between 5-10mm less than a finesse.

Would I get some?
If the price is right I reckon I would.

Musings.
For some people (especially younger ones) big diabolos are unwieldy, small diabolos are often limiting, a decent midi size diabolo could fill a gap.
The extra space you get when doing multiple diabolos might prove usefull for 3d tricks and possibly 4d low.

Release date?
Not out yet, not sure when. Oh the evo 5's might be out in the UK in a few weeks if thats of any interest.
