'Which Diabolo To Choose'
« on: March 09, 2008, 10:28:10 am »
Eh herroh dere, today I was browsing YouTube and found a decently informative video from the owner of JugglingStore, this 7 Minute video gives some details on the workings of diabolos, showcasing and detailing most of the diabolos JugglingStore stocks.

It covers the general range of diabolos, including disappointingly brief examples of the more popular Fly, Circus and Finesse diabolos.

Enjoy?  ::)
Oh yeah, I have no freakin' idea how to embed a video from YouTube, so feel free to follow the link somewhere in that mess and embed the video yourself if mine didn't work.

Mod edit - hit the modify button and see how it's done
^^^  Just a URL? That's a surprise. Thanks a lot.

Thanks for that. Flys = Durable? I don't think so.

Pretty good summarization overall. Probably wouldn't hurt to put that in one of the equipment stickies just as a reference. Edit - done

Whooh, I struck D.ca gold, no cash value.

It's a bit of a shame that the video doesn't go to describe the deeper pro's and con's of diabolos, and a few descriptions seem a bit... wrong?

I keep hearing about Flys getting ripped up during casual play in the most unbelievable ways, and 'Brian' says they're very durable.
I think that he's comparing them to the 'Plastic' cups he mentioned on diabolos like the Beach, and how they can shatter.
He said that the Fly cups are Rigid-ish like the Beach, but are flexible enough to not shatter with a pavement drop.

Durable shatter-wise, not gaping-hole-wise, I guess.

Fingergrinds are definitely not impossible with small axles, although they are much easier, longer, and usually stabler with long axles.
Fingergrinds should be possible with almost any conventional diabolo, but with varying lengths and quality.

Nice video, but still way too brief :P
