Sundia Handsticks
« on: May 24, 2008, 12:42:39 pm »
Hello.  ;D

As most of us know, Sundia has established itself as a large competitor on the diabolo market with their Sun and Fly series of diabolos.
Additionally, Sundia produces some very attractive handsticks, mostly carbon-type, which are meant to be the professional grade sticks.

Sundia's handsticks can be viewed here at Nev's online store, the UK distributor of Sundia products and more!

Anyways, like anyone, I want to know about the things I'm buying- but so far I haven't seen a detailed review of Sundia's handsticks.
Could somebody who's had experience with them, most likely Nev, post a guide about them?

How durable are they, what kind of other sticks do they compare to?
How string efficient are they, what kind of string attachment method do they use?
How comfortable are they, are the grips placed in the right position?

Thanks.

I've used my mates pair of Sundia CFs, they're lighter and shorter then Henrys but use the same string attachment method, I'm not sure about colours, you'll have to ask Nev.
I'm hoping to pick up a pair within the week.
Oh and the grips are about as comfortable as they could ever get.

Thanks for the feedback.

So, durability-wise, what are we lookin' at here?
Can they be treated like Alu's?

Alright, I'm kinda pressed between Henry's Alu and Sundia Carbons now... suggestions?

And don't bother posting the "it's all a matter of opinion" stuff, because I haven't tried either of those two yet so I don't know which one appeals more to my opinion, just tell me which you prefer please.

Hey I can't see it but do they have to same string attachment as henry's carbon or as those mr babache extreme handsticks? That one wastes less string.

Because if it is.. I'll buy one  ;D

Henry's carbon-like string attachment I believe.  Not that they're very long, mind you.

But they do come in a delightful walnut burr finish, or braided carbon fibre (which in my personal opinion, looks the sex).

Nice sticks with nice style, for personal appreciation.

I think what you're going to have to find out, Arron, is it all DOES come down to you in the end. About 0.2% of the people online here know you in real life (if that), and the rest of us are basically unaware of what your preferences are outside of what you've written down.

Do you like heavy sticks? Go with aluminum. Do you like lighter sticks? Go with carbon.

Who knows, maybe someone will make you get one pair of sticks and you'll *gasp* change your preference. Gotta try some things out yourself sometimes.

There great but if your using thick string then it rips the outer part of very quickly or at least mine do.  I use sundia thick string and I have to replace my string every day.

No I mean that it rips the outer part on the string off, not the stick

Or you could just buy both. I have a pair of henry's aluminum ones for my circus' and then a pair of sundia carbon(short) for my flys.
