i'v just got my extreme and i put the tranparent grip of the energy on the extreme stick it's beautiful  :D

Interesting. Does that work well? Is it easy to remove the black handle? Does  the 'new' clear handle stay on the stick?

you just have to cut the grip of the extreme and put 2 circle of extra glu at the bigin and end then put the grip of the energy transparent i use it two days only but i love it confortable and very nice i'm gonna call them pétrouchka and devotchka  :D

Hey,

I'm a big fan of most of the MB stuff.
Unfortunately I don't know any shop in Germany who carrys a lot of MB.
(I only know of 2 shops, who only carry 2 Diabolo sizes and that'S it).

So I was wondering, where do you guys shop ?

Name any of your favourite shops, I'm sure it'll help.

Cheers,

i get all my MB equipment from www.firetoys.co.uk

But most other stuff like beard and henry's i get straight from the factory. But firetoys has the widest range and good customer service.

the extreme seems more strong than the henry's alu and i think they are nicest than the henry the weight is better dispersed but that 's more a question of likes than other things

yeah, the Extreme does seem a lot stronger. my henry's alum sticks look like bananas now, ive bent them back a few times but im afraid that every time i bend em back it makes them weaker...

i think it's less good than the henry alu because they are largest!

pretty awful unless you have a Finesse with Evo1 kit. they are freakin huge and their material isnt conducive to grinds, on a regular finesse or a henry's you wont get much grind length.

That was something I was afraid of was the thickness of the shafts.  I guess grinding isn't really in fashion anymore :(

So, how are these sticks for grind moves with a wide axled Finesse? Is it still really easy?

Well, at the WJF, Eric was able to do his traditional grind sequence (the one that finishes with a behind the head pass) with the new sticks and wide axles without any problem. I guess they aren't as good as the skinnier henrys sticks for grinds, but for normal grind moves with normal axles I find them just fine.

They just wouldn't win any grinding competitions - that's all. :P

The reason that I'm asking is that I have been working on some 2d grind moves... a bit like Eric's routine, but with 2 diabs. :wink: If I get this solid, I might send it in as a trick of the week.

nah, they're fine for grinding, the henry's alum sticks are much better for grinding thats all. as long as you have the evo1 you're safe.
