So after all that.......which would you recommend buying?  Energy or Extreme?  Which will last longer?

Both will break because of their poor design. The Energy will probably break faster. :)

This depends on the tricks you do and on the surface you play on... you shouldn't do tricks where you're stick can hit the ground(genocides, pretty sure ones are ok of course :wink: )when you're playing on tarmac, play on grass... My Energs are really older and much more resistant than any other sticks I ever had.

But the best way would be to test them both (I know this isn't easy :roll: ), then you'l know whether you like the Energy's flexibility or theExtreme's stiffness more... But there was enough chatter in this thread, so have a look at it and decide (or try them as I said :P )

Oh come on. It's like comparing an elephant in a China shop to a bulldozer in a house of mirrors.  :lol:

Looking For Babache Repair Kit 1742 (in the US)
« Reply #244 on: May 08, 2006, 06:04:50 pm »
Hi,

My son got a set of Mr. Babache Xtreme handsticks. After using them for a while the little plastic end snapped. The instructions that came with the sticks tell me to order replacement tips, but no one seems to carry them.  I contacted Higgins Bros., JugglingStore.com, and Dube, but none of them stock the repair kit 1742.

I was able to find the repair kit at firetoys (UK), but that would cost £5.81 to ship a £1.69 part.

Does anyone know where to find thes parts in the US or Canada?

Thanks,
Simon

Hi Simon, I merged your topic to this thread, because I think it fits a bit better in here. Have a look in this topic to find what you're looking for.

the repair tips are seen if you scroll down and see the xtreme handsticks page in jugglingstore and click on the picture with the metal tips. i don't know why they didn't make a shortcut on the diabolo page.

Just have a look through this thread. There's almost everything covered and there are many opinions/answers on your questions. And to answer your question, this is mainly a matter of favour - but some people say, Energies aren't good for learning 2...

Has any one used the G3s yet to see if they break as much?

I got a pair of moon energies and they're sweet! have had no trouble with the thread snapping/breaking....
I was practising vertax genocides and snapped the stick in half in the washing line though, funy as!
Firetoys sent me a new one though (that site is a legend!) and now i can do that trick which is sweet too, would recomend extremes cos i love their feel but not to be too harsh with them or energies if like the colours or just to stand out fromt he carbon fibre crowd  :wink:

the energy snapped half way down the stick! i have ended up cutting the other stick down to the same lenght,
there are good points with short sticks! you get loads of feeling when doing fans,
the bad points are its harder to correct your diabolos!

PS i will not be buying any more energy or classics again!

It was me that broke Jammy's first stick there. I was merely doing an infinite suicide run when the free stick hit the grass we were playing on and the handle end of the stick flew off!

All I can say is that I'm disappointed with Babache sticks.

Occasionally, the silicone handles can be a bit loose.  If you can get them off, a thin layer of tape or equivalent will increase the diametre enough to hold the tubing.
