Just to clairfy, your Fly started out as a bearing axle, but now acts as a fixed? Have you tightened the cups too tightly, by chance? I seem to recall being able to tighten it so that it prevented the axle from working. If so, then all you would have to do is loosen the cups, and the bearing will have the space from the cup needed to work properly again.
If it's a different problem, you might have to explain the how the situation happened a bit more (drop it from a high throw; threw it at your neighbours dog; etc). Then we might be able to give better advice.

I have two flys, one green one blue, but I haven't touched any of the bolts or nuts and they are totally fine, they both work great. Just to clarify that it's not the colours ;)
If you try and don't succeed, cheat. Repeat until caught. Then lie.

NO! If they're blue, you should not touch your nuts.

Or you could give us more details and try and figure this out since they are almost surely not broken.
-it started making noises
-it became fixed & it slips both ways? huh?

What have you tried? How is it put together? Photos of how it's put together? There are many people here who could offer you great help, but not with that kind of description.

Well I guess throwing money at a problem is one way to fix it.

I've had mine since the beginning... what's that? A few years? I've never had any problems. You don't often hear of people having problems with the axles, so it's highly unlikely that all 3 of yours are bad. It's much more likely that you're putting them together a bit incorrectly.

Unfortunately, our mind reading skills are rusty today, so, unless you are going to take detailed photos or write a detailed description, I'm not sure there's a lot we can help you with from afar.

(Actually I can help you from afar - just buy all 3 of mine. :) )

Who did you buy them from? You could also contact him/her/them.

I think he said it was from Firetoys. The problems sounds pretty weird, i've tested over 70 fly's now and they all have worked just fine. And i haven't heard anything alike that before. Are you sure you didn't buy fixed axle fly's in the first place?

Now that i think of it i might have experienced one slip on bearing before. When having really fast speeds and hitting more speed. But that was fast and has not happened since. I didn't see it as a problem because it happened only once...

Right, missed that the first time. There's your first problem: If you buy from the messiah, the messiah takes care of you. ;)

Nothing more to say really. Your other diabolos are almost surely just fine. These axles are very high quality and don't usually just stop working. I'd look into it more.

How about you re-read the thread before you post another useless comment. People have told you possible reasons of why it wouldn't be working, you've already said what they've said is the case, which it most likely is and you probably just haven't tried it. Even if you tried it you haven't posted pictures or even a very detailed description of what is wrong, so how the heck is anyone mean to be able to tell you what is wrong with the axle?

And no you don't have to buy from diabolo moves, its just the better idea, its the best site for taiwanesse diabolos.
