Edit - This was an April Fools joke - Henrys is not discontinuing the Circus diabolo and I have no knowledge that the Vision diabolo has been released yet.

--

I just got an email from Henrys saying that the Vision diabolo has now been released to stores. That's great news!

Here's the shocker - they think it's so good that they're discontinuing the Circus! I think that's terrible! It's been around for so long and is such a great all around diabolo. It's a shame new diaboloists won't be able to get it. I'm hanging on to mine for sure.

I'm thinking that we should start a petition to convince Henrys to keep making the Circus. Add your name and comments here and when this gets big enough I'll send a link to the people at Henrys. Come on. Let's make this thread huge!

Getting rid of the circus would be a massive error. Too be honest, maybe the new diabolo IS so good that after you use it you dont see the point in the old one. I doubt it though.

As an unmodded Circus user for the last 6 years, it's a shame to see them finally go. I suppose I'll have to update to Renegades...

Keep the circus or I'll burn down the factory! I don't care HOW good the new diabolo is - you can't kill a classic!

Discontinuing the Circus would be lame. I still like mine and I'd like to be able to get more (colours) in the future!

we all need to play with the vision first tbh but for people who want the old classic then it would be a mistake.

What the- they can't do that! That's insane, I'm sure they'll lose a lot of sales because of this decision.

I better buy some before its too late.

My circuses kicked Finesse out of the park and I'll stick by them always.  May have to resort to using my signed ones now though :-S

Actually yesterday i visited my local juggling store and they had stocked up Circus diabolos. For real, they did not have any Finesses at all. I wondered why they had not bought any Finesses. Now I'm starting to get the reasons. Better buy some more since those are only one's that i use...

seaneatsmuffins, i can get some of those for you. They have like 20 there now. Just let me know, shipping won't be a problem. ;)

*Chuckle*, indeed. Now watch this actually be true seeing as how I have a track record of that happening. And yes the mods were in on it.

Hope I didn't cause a mad rush to buy Circuses. :)

Ok I probably shouldn't post this because it's extremely embarassing.

I seriously ordered some circuses, because I thought that this might be my last chance to do so.

In Europe and America at least, April 1st is known as April Fools Day. Which pranks and jokes are pulled and which point the people are fooled and get a "April Fools Day," and everyone laughs.

I was just thinking that an accumulation of topics in this vein would pile up in the forum and unsuspecting members would search for terms and come across threads like this and be all confused.

Disclaimers are useful.
