Sorry that I've to explain my previous words,maybe i shouldnt use the word "vote"(is like will influence others making decision)..
BUT,myself uses them for a period of time...and found that this model are pretty good,well-balance,lighter weight that suit for girls or those who prefer lighter version. :-D
Is really an awesome new model from sundia with amazing transparent shell colours..does anyone agree with me?
Look mate, basically every post you have made in the short time you have been a member is bigging up something you sell. It's not overly appreciated, how about some posts about something else, some videos maybe a VOTW how about trying to be a productive member of the forum before trying to make money from it?
failing that http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?board=23.0

I have to say that from all of the above list my vote goes to the taibolo - their glary diabolo is just such a candy. second place goes to finesse.
sites i built that are Diabolo related: www.taibolo.com | www.JugglingEquipment.com

Finesse will almost certainly get top as almost everyone seems to have them. The only reason I started with them because I didn't know any better. I wish I had started with circus or suns. Saved my money instead of waisting it on finesse.
Sideways is rubbish

Taibolos are my favorite, with giant circuses in second.

It's just a matter of preference. I know a lot of people who don't like Finnesses - including myself.

As far as professional models, I've only played with the Circus and Finesse G3 (both without mods).  In my limited experience, I'd say I like the Finesse more, mainly because of the lighter weight.  Although it is a little harder to correct for beginners (like my wife), it has more positive than negative.  I really like the fact that they are about 10 USD lower than most others.

Then you'd probably love the Circus with plastic hubs and washers. Unfortunately that set up certainly is anything but cheap.

Right now I'm pretty convinced that the 270 gram (normal) Sundia Sun with plastic washers is the best diabolo out there. Some other diabolos are arguably nicer for certain types of diaboloing, but overall, the Suns excel at everything and are poor at nothing. I've never been so content with my diabolo choice as I am right now.

Anyone notice that the Sun diabolos are trailing only the Finesses now? (ahem... marketing, sponsorship, mass availability, and slightly cheaper)

In fact, the combined Sun groups outnumber even the combined Circus groups. The times are changing. Nev's in a good place.

I've voted for finesse with a wide axle, but I think that no matter how nice the diabolo is, you still require practice to learn a trick. People say the taibolos are terrible but that doesn't stop ryo yabe from doing amazing tricks with them.

Who says Taibolos are terrible!? Ryo Yabe uses (and is involved in the development of) Sundia Sun diabolos, not Taibolos. William is associated with Taibolo.

Light Suns FTW! But then again, they are the only ones I've played with other than the Chinese yo-yo.  I've tried someone else's Finesse (forgot what G) but not enough for a vote change.  They seem nice though.

I don't have to whip mine every 30 seconds... for good examples of people not having to, and doing long combos, Crackers and L.C.A.B spring to mind...

Harlequin hands down. Close second is a circus with grind kit. I like the harlequin cuz it's nimble and light enough to easily do suicides.
