I always thought the bladder is the storage for urine in your body :-), and blisters are the things you mean
some people think they are better because they can do something better

Sorry, could you say which one is the old one and which one is the new one in each of your pictures please Fredo.  I can see the difference, but not sure which is which.

I'm all confused over these changes MB are making.

Those with that- ring under the handle...the yellow one's at the top and the white at the bottom... Also, the new ones have a small unbrushed part dirctly under the tips...

The handle isn't a special shape anymore(thinner at the top and thicker at the end), but is jaust a normal tube with that rubber ring under it(instead of tape). ALso, the tube is longer now...

One of my energy sticks snapped this week,  :cry: It wasn't even under any pressure at the time so i'm trying to get it replaced. For the moment i'm using a combination of and extreme and an energy, it seems to work quite well

Oh, just for people's information:  Firetoys are no longer offering warrenty on the MB sticks because too many people have broken them and ask for replacements.

So if you break them, and bought them from Firetoys, they're not gonna replace them for you.  You'll have to take it up with MB like Tijn has.

Firetoys says: "[It] does not feature the same problems as the Xtreme."

Perhaps is the end made of metal and not the rinky dink plastic? I guess the question is, will the plastic stick itself be the weakspot?

Most variations on a pair of handsticks released in one year? Does someone have a tally? I think we're into the dozens. :)

I picked up a set the other day for work but I havent even bothered to unwrap them yet.

You can tell how happy about babche proiducts I am. I broke a set of extremes the night before, we all know how babache could solve that problem.

BTW does anyone have the link of the juggler having a leak on the babache car, I'm thinking of changing my avatar.

Nah, they only have that disclaimer at the Extreme sticks, not at the Energy, nor(bi) at the Energy phospho sticks. I think people just lost confidence in the Energy sticks totally, and no-one's buying them anymore :P

This could be moved to the diabolo art thread :P  :D  No, really isn't it art? We could make a photo contest..."Who has the best pee on a babache car???"

Aww, that's an awesome photo.

Feel bad for Babache, such high demand for their shoddy products.  I've got some of their rings, their still ok, but we'll see...  :wink:

The guy of the photo is an spanish juggler.
Why Mi$ter Babache doesn´t stop selling a bad product instead of sell the bad product and replacements?
I think it´s just money, Mi$ter babache saw a gold mine when he released Diabology, and after that, they released g2, the sticks........It´s marketing, they used the Mad French Posse[or the Mad french posse used us?(i´m afraid about this last one)] to make money, and we bite the hook.
I used the Xtreme sticks while them weren´t broken, but after two pairs, i won´t buy anymore to Mi$ter Babache, maybe i´ll return to use the henrys aluminium, or i´ll make my own sticks, but i won´t give any cent to that company.

Sooner or later they'll find out. I do like the sticks... but they're just rubbish.

By the way, Eric broke on of his sticks ON STAGE in Ypres. That really shows how bad they actually are. He broke one of them while preparing for the excalibur passing part (he was trying to get it into the horizontal plane when it snapped)

i converted my energys into glo handsticks by taping a photon flashlight to the end, at least i'll be able to find the pieces in the dark if they snap in half
