sundia disambiguation
« on: August 21, 2008, 07:37:45 pm »
I just got my new sundia diabolo (fixed axle)... I think it's awesome - I'm confused though.

It was sold on jugglingstore.com as the "sundia new style" but outside of juggling store I can't find such a thing.

Is it the same as the sun? I'm not sure because I've heard that the sun has soft cups and mine has relatively hard cups.

can anyone help me?

I've been trying to figure out why it's called the "New Style" at jugglingstore.
I maybe be grasping for a connection when there is none.

In chinese (mandarin at least, dunno about canton), the word for "new" sounds alot like "sun" (in english).

yeah, it's the same diabolo and the cups are squishy and give more as like the whole cup but the actual material is relatively hard

Can anyone confirm this? It seems plausible...but why would Sundia call their product "the New"?
I guess it's one of those idiomatic things.

new? as in "xing"?
maybe they were too lazy to initially name it anything more than "old" and "new" =P

yeah, i pronounced it more like "xin", which i guess sounds a bit like sun, which is what sundia calls it.
