Actually, this would be fun to put JC's kits on with the nylon washers make them even lighter! Maybe put the Finesse light kit adapter and some lights would look way cool.

Hey Mo3,

I think my axle kits should also fit onto the Vision, I will test this and if
there is no problem there will be a Version of the Vision with my axle kits
available in April.

I saw today first prices of the Vision,
The price for the Vision is 19,90 Euro,
including Henrys Alusticks 29,90 Euro.

As I saw it is not possible to get this Diabolo partly,
unlike the Circus were you could buy Halfshells and Axle Kit separatly.
So it is necarry to buy a complete diabolo and additional an axel kit.

concerning the weight we will see;-)

@Eric,
the Finesse Evolution Light Kits should also fit, they would add 44g weight

MONOBOLOS, Henrys Circus, Vision and MB Finesse with round shaped axles

"transparent half shells made of the same material as roller skate wheels" sounds like the finesse material... review?  :embarassed:

I always wanted henrys to make a new diabolo, but maybe until now.

I love the thick colors (henrys have the best diabolo colors there are (untill they get dirty)), but now they seem to go over to some finesse style color :(

Also, the weight is probably now too less again. (also finesse style?) Adding weight in the middle does not give much more stability, so I hope these do by themselves.

Anyways, of course I will have to wait how it plays before I can say more.

This is how I'm approaching it. I look forward to getting my hands on some and not just go on the pictures.

Some time after I get my hands on them probably  :)

Release in April, then whenever they get imported into this country then the shops order them in.

Since the BJC is in April and Henrys comes to the BJC then I'd expect that they'll have some with them to try/buy. That's the earliest any of us in the UK is likely to see them unless they send some over early.

Forgot to say that myself and a few others have played these, and they're pretty nice diabolos! Different size to what I was expecting, but they play really nice and for a smaller lighter diabolo they hold their spin pretty well! Its like diaboloing with skimmed milk as opposed to full fat! Wonderous on the wrists!

i thought that they didn't hold spin that well, but that could have been because they were new.
i liked the cup material though...

Tried out one today. Also had a run with circusses, which in my opinion are way to narrow already. So I'm sticking to my tiabolo's, these are just to small for my taste.

Speaking of which, a few of us tried them out at the Dutch convention as well. All of us weren't too impressed by them, but here's hoping that switching out the hubs and axle improves how it plays.

I dont think aimed at high end diaboloists. The price €19.90 / €29.90 (with a set of allys thrown in) I think reflects that. (plain circus €30.50, finesse about the same, not sure about tornado)

I like them, they are light. The first 5 minutes I had to get used to them compared to the circus weight. But then I couldn´t took them out of my hands for the next 2 hours.
They still look good after outdoor play. As I remember my circus looked worse after 10 minutes of play.

I just got 2 of these. They are great, they are not to light and feel great on the string. They look nice as the are translucent. I also got a new set of carbons with them so diaboloing feels fantastic at the moment. When you can..buy these.

I have three of those too and I can say they are very good diabolos, but only after attaching some tuning set on them, which makes them wider and slightly heavier. With my own made tuning set (like giant ones but without the small shelf near the iron ring), heavier pads with holographic foil and heavier nuts they are now just amazing. I have to point out, that without any tuning set they are very light and uncontrollable. The comparison between tuned and non-tuned ones is whooping, especially when running more diabolos. They are made to be tuned! The advantage of the Vision is the height (not the diameter) which is just right after tuning, not like the Cirkus which is too wide with tuning set.

What I like about Visions is, that some of the Vision's colours are striking and conspicuous, what makes them ideal for performance.

What I don't like about them, is their stiffness and short spinning time (they would need 20 more grams around the edges and rubber feel to be almost perfect)



Here is my little dimension comparison:

Vision non-tuned:
240 g
127 mm diameter
121 mm height

Vision with tuning:
255 g
127 mm diameter
133 mm height

Cirkus
300 g
130 mm diameter
133 mm height

Finesse 3G
245 g
133 mm diameter
130 mm height

I know this is kinda late but are they any good for multiple diaboloing?
