at least much easier than 3d eiffels. I guess you have tried langerz. am I wrong? (probably i am)
perhaps saska?
I give my 'point' to fixed ones. But I love the stuff that people using bearings are able to pull out

I'm very new to diabolos and I've been watching lots of videos. It's clear to me many experienced diaboloists are using both fixed axle and bearing diabolos at different times.  Under what circumstances would a diaboloist choose one or the other, besides for string climbs?

Thanks.  I'm guessing the simple response is "preference".

I find it less satisfying landing tricks with bearings...
When doing suicides the sticks go alot faster with bearings.
So im only use my fly for vertax. and im trying to stop doing that and challenge myself with fixed axels.

Does "Vertax" work with a sundia fly?
Diabolo tricks are never hard beacause the person who invented them thought they were easy!!!

Yes. Most people would find most things vertax easier with bearings.

Bearings help with Vertax and slack tricks. I think that these are the only times one should use them, unless hey are working out a really hard trick.

Well thanks for your opinion, but it fails at being good advice.

i think using bearing diabolos is considered cheating, especially for integrals!

How weird, I think fixed axles are much easier in integrals :o

Yeah, many people have said it earlier, bearings work great in vertax and slacks. And they're nice when you're practising a new trick: when you have it clean, you could try to film it for a video with an fixed axle, for example.
