Switching cups
« on: November 12, 2010, 06:08:51 pm »
Hey I was wondering how to switch cups on Finesse G4? I know it can be done  but how? I just did't want to waste a super diabolo.

So any ideas or "how to's" would be great!!!

:D

I switched my finesse G4 cups awhile back, and just switched them back to the originals the other day. Apparently not all colours can be switched, and I have no idea the logic behind it, but its true. I have a white one and an orange one, and they're very slightly wobbily when the cups are switched. I thought they were wobbily because of just excessive use, but when I switched them back, they spin very smoothly.

If you want to give it a try, you need an alan key/hexwrench. I'm not sure the exact size, but if you buy a kit, or bring your diabolo to a hardware store, you can find the right one. One of the diabolo cups has a long screw, and the other one has a nut that the screw goes into. Make sure you're not trying to put the 2 screw ends together, or the 2 nut ends together. Take them apart completely, but keep them seperate, and just switch the matching pieces from the cup you want to switch.

Hope this helps.

I haven't ever tried to switch the cups so its one colour on one side and another on the other side, but i do know that my dark blue G3 weighs a little bit more than my UV reactant G3. I came to the decision that it had something to do with the dies or coloring of the cups, but that is purely a theory. could explain wobbling between white and orange though, darker colours, possibly heavier dies.

I don't notice it and it dosn't look like it's wobbiling. So red and yellow must roughly weigh the same.
