I used to have dark green tape on the outside of my green flys. Looked alright but scratched off.
Anyway, all green flys (+1 pink) because all my gear is green excluding my bounce balls..

Orange.

Because it's the color Jesus wanted to wear while he was crucified.

Three finesses, blue, red and white. Nice mixature for 3d, if I could do it, though ;D

When I had Circuses I had green, black, orange (same as dracodragon) and those were used a lot.

Now I prefer all white diabolos for insidepractice and all yellow outside. Also have 3 purple Taibolos to use outside that I really like. Have lots of diabolos in different colors actually but no doubt most are white.

Not really, blue and red are on opposite ends of the spectrum so they clash when used together, that's just my experience/opinion though.

Wouldn't colors from the opposite ends of the spectrum have better contrast with each other, and make the two look better together?
I mean, imagine which looks better:
Shuffling a Black and White pair
or
Shuffling a White and Yellow pair

...Actually, they're both pretty good- I guess it's personal preference.

Anyways, I chose 2 green suns, so that when I get my third I can mix the cups and have 2 multi-color diabolos for 2D.

But doesn't Orange, Yellow, and Green look good together? They're all close together on the spectrum, just like Blue, and White look good together. Technically Black isn't visible light since all light colors are absorbed and I'll be damned if you show me the wavelength for Black.

My friend has orange, yellow and green. They look just too "fruity" to be diabolos of a serious juggler ;D. It's just ridiculous mixature.

Maybe that's why I like that colour combo so much :)

Nothing wrong with orange, yellow, and green! They were my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th diabolo and the first set of 3 I owned - Henry's Circus. I still love them to this day... in fact those are the 3 I'm travelling with right now because they can take the pavement.

Why don't we all get super technical, develop a pleasing colour scheme based on color theory, and then buy accordingly?

Or just diabolo with whatever the heck you want! ;)
