nope, can't be lengthened. at least, not without losing a lot of the structural rigidity.

hey ive got those sticks and i dont think thay are that short they are shorter than the wooden ones but itll just take a few days to get used to them. you could thry and lengthen them at the handle end but that wouldnt even be that much use.

You could adjust the end where the rubber is as you can see there is a peace of metal there when you look down you could remove some of the rubber and weld another peace onto the handle, but i wouldnt see the point. you them could put on some more rubber for the new handle. i would just reconmend getting longer handsticks if you cdont like the length its far less trouble. plus these sticks are very easy to get used to and they do get the diabolo spinning very quickly. the only thing is quite hard to do tripezes but with a bit of practice it comes slong ok. stick at them sticks youll get used to them, they only took me three days to get used to them with my finesse

You could put a ally/plastic/whatever dowel in to add  more tube.. I'd say you will most likely have most joy getting used to them.

A lot of people seem to choke down on their sticks as well. quite often where the grip ends seems to dictate where you hold them, cutting back the grip might give you the feel of a longer stick

I have these it doesnt take long to get used to them idd say its better to just use them for a week and youll not need to do anything to them because youll be used to them. if you feel they are short you could get longer sticks such as the henrys.

Carbons suck!!!

Aluminums all the way!!  I just like how rigid it is.  Carbon fiber bends and it's too light so I like aluminums more.

Is someone trying to bump their thread count..?

How about trying out some nice ball spinning?

If you stuck two diabolo cups together backwards you'd get a very expensive contact ball....

Like a Spinabolo?  Those are the ones that come apart aren't they?  How is that any more convenient for storage?

Its the Yoho superspins that turn into a ball (older models do - latter ones dont) not the Spinabolo.
