Whats this?
« on: November 18, 2010, 08:09:55 pm »
Hey,

Wondering if anyone knows what this is, its on ebay and advertised as a Mr B Birdie.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150522031144&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:VRI

I thought those birdies have dimples on them like golf balls and dont have black hubs.

Any idea's?

I don't know but my first diabolo(was a Mr b) looked just like that. I've never identified it.
And the strange think about it is the axle, it has some kind of weird , sorry for my bad English, "rail".
Can this be the same one?

First I think it´s a Henrys Kolibri, but the axle of the Kolibri is a bit further than this axle. No idea what it will be else...

I don't think so.. The rubberking has a wider axel and a rail in it.  But it looks strange..

Can we all agree that it isn't worth buying?
Diabolo may be very technical - but don't overlook the artistic side ;-)

hehe, I would agree if it was for myself, my daughter has been playing on my old toy shop style diabolo, she is getting in to it and my g4 is to big for her so was just looking for something cheap and in between the two sizes

I have an MB Birdie at home (don't ask why ::) ) and it looks pretty similar to that.

No, you can't. Truth is, really, I am not 100% sure if mine is a birdie anymore. There is no 'MB' anywhere on it, and I didn't buy it and the person who did had no clue anyway...
