Title: How many diabolos?
Post by: Chiok on February 19, 2005, 08:38:11 PM
I was watching the Diabology DVD and saw the brief shot they have of their diabolos in a pyramid.  36 diabolos in that particular picture, All Finesses apart from 2, 13 of which are white I think...  And that can't be all of them probably as they have Circuses as well.  Mr. Babache must love them.

I was wondering how many diabolos other people had and why you have that many.  I personally only have 3, one cheap toy one and 2 Henry's Beach and only use the latter (doing 2D atm).  I do intend to purchase 2 Finesses, hopefully in white or red.

Plus, estimates on how many diabolos the MFP do have?  All nine together, some "twin-wheel" craziness there.

Chiok

p.s Does the Evo 4 show through all colours apart from blue Finesse?

I got 2 radient for my first diabolos about a year ago. I then proceded to get 2 circus cos they are better plus i bought a lumo circus for those UV moments. From here I got 2 Finesse which i love and recently i got a micro diabolo.

  Oh dear that makes 8 Diabolos!!!!!!!!   bit of a diabolo geek really. i only bin at it for 9months!

I have  
           - 2 MB Arlequino midi's (one of them is a cheap replica :? )
           - 2 Henry's Circus (blue/black)
           - 2 MB Finesses G2 (red)
           (planning to buy an other Finesse G2 (white))

I only diabolo with my Finesses since I bought them. Circus is now too heavy :P

Somewhere in the 50-60 range, I think.  No, I don't know why - perhaps they've been breeding?
Title: Re: How many diabolos?
Post by: Chiok on February 20, 2005, 12:35:15 AM
Ewww, can you imagine 2 monster diabolos going at it, kinda like thinking of your parents.  Wanna be careful with them, inbreeding and what not, could have an orgy on your hands.  Maybe that's how a one sided diabolo came about...

I own 6 diabolo's.
- 1 cheap toyshop one (wich I started with... nostalgia... :P )
- 1 Henry's Viper glow in the dark
- 1 Harlequino-like-thing, don't know how it got there
- 2 MB diabolo's of wich I don't know the name, but they look like small Finesses or something :?
- 1 Circus

I mainly use the Circus, and when praciticing 2d I take those MB's.. maybe one day I'll buy myself Finesses, 'cause I tried them in Ieper and they felt really nice! :)

I think I have eight.  There's the three Henry's Circus I actually use (two of them nearly 10 years old now), and five renegades.  I don't use them any more but I have 2 with Flare brass axles, which added a bit of weight which was nice at the time, and 3 normal ones.

1 toy thingy
2 Circus

and I will probably buy an eagle from a friend.
A shame that it will be a bitch getting my hands on some finnesses G2. The biggest shop in sweden didnt even knew they excisted.
Title: Re: How many diabolos?
Post by: Chiok on February 20, 2005, 07:59:50 PM
It seems everyone started off with some form of cheap crappy diabolo from Toys R Us or somewhere.  

Shame that you're not able to get Finesses in Sweden, not very in the know.  I wish I had the money to get 3 Finesses are 3 Circuses.  Must be how toss jugglers feel about buying silicones.  It's pretty similar in price.  I'd love some silicones too.  Just want this and want that really...

I didnt start with a crappy toy, i started with a Jazz, the toys were given to me by well-meaning grandparents that knew i liked diabolo and thought they were giving me something really useful and cool. :D

2 monster diabolos (they are a killer for running 2)
3 circus
1 old renegade
2 jazz
3 different little plastic toy things
3 finesse G2's on preorder
oh and some i forgot... 1 arlekino, 1 rubberking, 1 jumbo harlequin, 2 fyrefli fire diabolos.
so i guess thats 19, wow i thought i only had 4  :)

2Circus of my own, I have also been given 1 on longterm loan
2 finesse G1 with evo axles and weights
1 medium rubber from someone who used to be into juggling
1 glow in the toy nasty thing that I use to keep change in

So only seven :)

First I thought this was your guess at the total owned by the entire Mad French Posse, then I remembered having this exact same discussion with you and Donald Grant backstage at Chocfest. I think his total beat yours, didn't it? He moved house and discovered he had about 80.

I have 9 or 10 left over from when I used to run juggling workshops. I only use mini Flairs regularly and a red brandless one I bought in a shop in France back in 1996 that I perform with sometimes, though not for jugglers.
Title: Re: How many diabolos?
Post by: kragen on February 21, 2005, 11:24:08 AM
I only have the 4:

1 Fire Diabolo
2 Harlequins
1 Finesse

But im almost certianly getting another fire diabolo and another finesse, plus im sorely tempted by a couple of mini diabolo just for the comedy value of doing 2 diabolo with diabolo smaler than juggling balls!

Plus im tempted by a ratchet diabolo cus the finesse axel is taking ages to come out and i want to experiment (no-one else I know has them).
Title: Re: How many diabolos?
Post by: staticjuggler on February 26, 2005, 02:13:24 AM
Lets see...

I started with a cheap jugglebug diabolo

Then I got a harlequin

Then I got 2 circuses because it seemed like it was considered the standard around good diaboloists

Then I picked up another circus at a convention

Then I bought 2 micro diabolos, and my sister got 1 micro diabolo as well

So I guess that adds up to 7 that I own, 8 that are in my house including my sister's.

In the future I might consider getting some finesses, I love how bright the colors are, and the fact that you can put lights and extended axles on...but not for a while though.

And I've only  been diaboloing for 11 months now!

Title: Re: How many diabolos?
Post by: Chiok on February 27, 2005, 11:51:37 AM
I think there is some sort of inter-bolo breeding occuring in France.  They probably have a higher average number of diabolos per head.  Maybe they're cheaper over in France, or Canada perhaps.  Ah, to be sponsored with diabolos, almost like getting your band signed or getting sponsorship for the X-games.

Hope everyone has had a nostalgic time rooting through their cupboards to find all those that you used to play with.  Though me thinks some of you just can't get enough of them (9 finesses and 10 circuses? that's just silly).  I suppose it's not the most expensive hobby in the world a person can pick up.  I remember a guy that got addicted to eating Fabrege Eggs...

I stand by my hypothesis that they are multiplying.
Maybe he likes to share, maybe he has the money to buy new ones, maybe he likes all the colours, maybe they've worn out, maybe they come from friends and family, maybe he loses alot of them, maybe he can do 9.

Lots of reasons, personally I'd like to own 9 as well, but that's near £300 worth of rubber, phew!

think theyre called harlequino's (not sure how its spelt), Someone I know has 2 - the are literally a couple of cm across!

I did manage to get a 2 diabolo shuffle going, in fact as long as you keep the whole thing in line its surprisingly easy - theyre so small its impossible for them to not separate out!

I'm gonna get some myself as soon as I get the chance.

sometimes you have so many diabolos for a reason, they are all sort of different...i have 5 G2s, but 2 of them are Evo1, and 3 of them are stock, i also have 1 evo4 set, and im looking to get another. so if you have a lot of different types than its useful...

or maybe Arjan just wants to collect all the colors :P

hey Sean, if you ever want to sell a white G1, you've got a buyer right here ;) i always wanted one for "collector" value (aka leave it on the shelf) but i never wanted to spend full price for a new G1, because i started getting into finesses after the G2 came out.

That post is really old.. my list has grown, and I got the pink Finesses in my avatar months after posting that. I now know what those small MB diabolo's were: Rubberkings.

My new list:
- 3 red Henry's Circus
- 2 pink Finesses G2
- 1 glow in the dark Henry's Viper
- those 2 MB Rubberkings of course
and some stupid toy diabolo's that I never play with.

Lets see
2 - Henry's Circus (stock)
2 - Henry's Circus with light kits
2 - MB Professoinal
1 - Traditional Chinese bamboo
1 - Traditional Chinese plastic w/optional one wheel spindle (Juggle Bug ?)
1 - Traditional Chinese one wheel, plastic (Renegade)
4 - MB Circus (2 - retired due to dry rot after about 20 years)
1 - Radical Fish Diabolo (bad construction of a basically good design)
1 - Dube 4" (one of the first steel and rubber ones ever made)
1 - Dube 3" wood  (only thing available in the late 1970's)
3 - plastic toy types (received over the years)

so that is about 19. (funny that averages to a little less than 1 per year)

Post by: donald grant on February 20, 2006, 11:09:30 PM
I found myself at a loose end tonight, and spotted this thread..... I noticed in earlier posts that It was estimated that I had "about 80" diabolos in my posession.  That kinda scared me, so I grabbed a pen and paper (this is already sounding a bit sad) and went for a wander round my house.....

And the final total is.......

58 and 1/2 diabolos.

I guess I have been doing it longer than most, but still....

Most popular brand was somehow still Renegade, even though I don't use them on stage anymore.  For anyone who cares, they beat Henry's into second place by 12 1/2 to 12.

Lots of these (like the African and Chinese ones) are ornaments these days, but it's still scary to find out just how many of them I actually have.

Donald

(PS Funniest find was one of the first prototype Fyrefli fire diabolos from the EJC in Leeds (1993).  They gave me it with the instruction to "give it a good going over".  It didn't last long, but I still have it in its buckled wobbly state, for some reason..?)
Title: Re: How many diabolos?
Post by: Matt_ on February 21, 2006, 12:37:09 AM
i cant speak for everyone else, but i'd actually like to see the "donald grant diabolo breakdown", seeing how many of which diabolos you have...so if you wouldn't mind typing up the list, i raise my hand for the "i'd like to see it" crowd..
Title: Re: How many diabolos?
Post by: Chiok on February 21, 2006, 09:57:20 AM
I can imagine half a Renegade, a shattered one is not pretty.   Better than the old Monster diabolo though.  I know some people might think that diabolo as a job would be a great thing, but I can respect how you've kept at it so long so gather so many diabolos, and still have a love for it.

I also raise my hand to see "Which diabolo would live in a house like Donald Grant's?"

Something to do with your evening I guess.

Chiok
Title: Re: How many diabolos?
Post by: donald grant on February 21, 2006, 11:18:03 PM
Okay, I've been round the house again.  The official breakdown would seem to be, in descending order......

12 1/2 Renegades (one of them fitted with the original prototype LEA light tubes from Aerotech.  Looks great when charged but weighs in at about half a kilo. Still, that's not so bad for 11 year old technoprop!)

12 Henrys:  5 Circus, 3 Glow Circus, 3 4er wide axle circus and one black jazz for some reason.

9 "Toy" diabolos of varying levels of crappiness.  The funniest ones are the "no-string" ones with a strange pelota-type claw for throwing and catching...

7 Babache: 2 finesse, 2 original harlequin jumbos (pre-"wobbly phase"), 2 mediums and one of those useless ultra-tiny ones.

5 Wooden ones, some crap 'n' ugly, the African ones are crap but prettier in a nice two-tone wood, and a not so bad Danish chinese-style one which, being solid wood rather than bamboo, will happily remove your teeth the first chance you give it.

3 Jugglebug(?) adaptable whistlers.  You can set 'em up as a one-wheeler or a two wheeler......or just leave them alone, as I tend to do.

2 Flare Jumbos

2 Ball-bearinged Yo-ho things

2 Toss-ups (if it wasn't for their mind-melting physics, they should be in the toy section of this.  Or the bin.  Honestly:  drive with your right hand, they spin anti-clockwise.  Drive with your left, they still spin anti-clockwise!  **** witchcraft, but witchcraft nonetheless....

2 Bamboo one wheelers.  Classics, love 'em.

2 Fire diabolos: the aforementioned Fyrefli in car-crash condition, and a beautiful Tom Nesbitt Mk2, still pristine.

That concludes the safari of my toybox.  I'll let you know if anything turns up down the back of my sofa........

Donald

Well, I feel inadequate now.  I remember those old MB Harlequins now, seemed so good.  And I just couldn't take a Nesbitt diabolo outside to play with.  Costs so much and looks so shiny, don't wanna get mud or grass on it, seems a waste of £80 to do so.

Thanks for the breakdown!

I have  two Circusses, blue and green. When I will get third one it will be turquoise so the colors will match nicely.
I also would love to have couple of nice finesses, I havent decided yet if I want them pink or white :)

Oh yes, I also have one self-made diabolo. It is made of a broken floorball. The halves of the ball makes great cups and I fitted my old circus hubs to them. It's quite hard to get any tricks with it but its fun to mess around with.

I've just realised that I can now do this with all my diabolos:

(http://2diabolo.net/15diabs.jpg)

So I did.  From the bottom, that's three standard Renegades, another with the axle from a Flare Jumbo, and a Flare Jumbo in the middle.   Next row is four Henrys Circusses with Allround axles.   Above that are three luminous Circusses with plastic hubs but otherwise standard.  Then on top of the pile are my three new luminous diabigs.

Apart from the Flare, the pile is vaguely in chronological order.   The outer two allrounds are the oldest (the cups are about 12 years old), but I had renegades before them.  They were the breakable type.   They broke.
Title: Re: How many diabolos?
Post by: Matt_ on November 22, 2006, 02:48:33 AM
Ah yes, Renegades and Flare Jumbos, I haven't used those in a long time. I'm really jealous of those diabigs :(

I should take a pic like that of my diabolos, although I don't think it would be that exciting, being that I just have G2s and Circuses with various hub/axles. And a Henry's Beach.

Hehe!  Splendid.

Yeah, white probably does look better.  I'm not sure what I want to do about using different coloured hubs.  Three different colours could be handy, but I don't think I'll like the look of that.   I'll dither a bit more then order some extra hubs, I think.

There's loads of good 3 advice in other threads already.   Have a read of those.  It's best not to have more requests for help in the wrong part of the forum. And if you're running at three so early, don't expect quick progress.

For the three diabolos I got my brother to throw it on and it worked after a while, so my advice would be to get someone else to throw it on (when doing 2 to get the 3rd on) and just keep on practicing. Also when I did it (which was recently) I tried doing it by myself and it worked a bit of the time so try that as well :)

yup, i haven't diabolo'd for a few days now coz i hurt my arm  :(, i could manage about 10 catches at most but now i cant even start it properly, might just be cause me arm still hurts, i'lll get circus gremlin to spin one up for me and throw it in, and vice versa, thanks for the tip.

Okay, I've looked through every page of the Gear category and haven't found a match. Just wondering what diabolo did you guys start with? Me, I started with a little yellow and green YoHo Superspin (I know that heaps of Aussies would of started with YoHo's too!) I got for my 11th Birthday (Thank you Grandparents!  ;D) and became hooked within an hour. So, what about you guys?

That "quite" there is awfully presumpteous.  Although I expect to be proven wrong awfully quickly.

Also, I've noticed a bit lately, but I'd like to point you in the direction of the Posting Guidelines (http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=1480.0) and such about spelling and punctuation if you wouldn't mind.

For me, 5 diabolos (not including my first not so bad white and orange who ended in a dog mouth...)

2 Jazz (before I understood they were too small too begin easily 2D stuff, and one was so old that the axe was not enough large to do a wrap without losing control...)

3 Circus (the first was purple, then I bought a phospho to make 2 bicolor diabolos, but I didn't know the phospho material was a little bit heavier than the regular... So I baught a third yellow one... But I cannot yet do 3D...)

I have:

1 MB Eagle
2 small MB (don´t remember their names)

So that totals...17 Diabolos

Updating that old 2005-list to also include:

1 Spinablo
3 more Finesse
3 Sundias
3 Taibolo
10 Flys
35 Diabigs

So now it´s 72 I think and planning on getting some more (Suns and one-sided). Wow, it really seems like a lot when you tally them all up together (it´s late and i´m tired so maybe I counted them slightly wrong ???). Don´t ever really spend any money on anything else though so it´s all good 8).

I can't believe sean_ got another flipping diabolo! There's already at
least ten on his bedroom floor who used to trip me up as i stumbled from
bed to toilet in the middle of the night. Also y is this new diabolo
necessary when he still can't do 3 (oh wait, it's to further deter me from
returning to his bed!) '

to replace it! yay! "

I started out with 1 circus diabolo then bought another circus diabolo.  Then i lost the original circus i started with and bought another circus .  Then as i got better i bought 2 finesses because of their lighter weight.  So now i have a a red and a blue henrys circuses and an orange and a green finesse.  That makes four diabolos!!!!!!!!! ;D

1 broken Spinabolo
1 Chinese whistling diabolo given to me by the towns jester (at the juggling club) who found it when clearing out his stuff and thought i might like it.
And finally i have a Firefly Comet fire diabolo.

When i have £20-30 to spare i might get one of those sundia bearing axle ones to replace my busted spinabolo.

I started out with a cheap one,
then I joined a circus program and stopped,
then dug up the old one,
then started borrowing a yoho superspin that the instructor just happened to have,
then borrowed it for so long she gave it to me after helping her with a workshop,
then got really interested in diabolo and got a sundia Fly,
and now, a year later, I'm freakin awesome at it!
but, the sundia broke and now I'm waiting for another to fall out of the sky. :P

oh, by the way, I go to the advanced circus program, but its just a small one, so I'm the only one who really does diabolo, and everyone is amazed...

And yearly we have a show, (like REALLY BIG SHOW,) and so many people say they're inspired by me...

  :D

anyways, I have 1 yoho superspin and will get another sundia fly soon.

These are all the ones that are at home atm and not scattered in trainingbags at various places.

Like already said though (to "defend" the amount of diabs in those pictures ;D), every single one of these except for some of the nonaxlemodded Circuses, the Renegades, 3 of the Finesses and the Eagle are in constant use during holidays, warmer days and seasons with better weather. During bad autumns and winter though they mainly just take up all the space in my room.

Oh and the 3 Fly´s in bearingmode in that second picture are in my bag right now, just added them there to make the number bigger haha ;).

Anyone know any of the Taiwanese, Japanese or Malaysian diabolists numbers? They seem to have lots of stuff as well.

I think you've made us all feel better about our seemingly excessive collections. Nice storage racks. I should set something up like that... albiet not quite as extensive.

You should add those to the gallery or add them here as attachments. (I should check if that gallery mod is ready again)

I have:

9 Circus
2 Renegade
3 Finesse (wide axle)
1 MB Eagle
2 small MB (don´t remember their names)

So that totals...17 Diabolos

^Found this posted by myself earlier in the thread and thought it was funny as a comparison (90 diabs in 3 years it feels like a lot)...

Finally, thanks for the kind words about my "collection". Langerz turn now ;).

so many amazing diaboloists use circus diabolos...
Most proffesionals have their own taste of diabolos, and they can like different diabs for different styles, 2D, 3D, vertax etc.
There is someone who is sticking to one brand and a type of diabolo, but many uses different types and brands.

2. A yellow HB Anti-grav. I found the blue one lying around my house and decided it would be fun, so I went out and bought this one. Yellow.
3-4. 2 MB Finesse G4, white and orange. I switched the cups around so they're each half orange, half white.

I'll pipe in to Arjan's defence. :P

-4 clean white circuses for performing only
-4 coloured circuses for training
-3 old permanently dirty looking white circuses

This is a bit late, but thanks Sean!

And just as an inspiration from you, I will "update" my list as well. Think I'm gonna need paper and a pen  :embarassed:

Yeah, I just estimated I have over 50 diabolo's, and proud about it for some strange reason, which is that I'm a total diabolo-ass.
Nah, most of them are actually standing at my top shelf collecting dust. Among them are some I bought just for fun. I should make a sort of display thing, and be all nerdy watching it all the time.

I don't know how I can post this without being super embarrassed but I have my reasons to obtain such abnormal numbers of diabolo's.

Like already said though (to "defend" the amount of diabs in those pictures ;D), every single one of these except for some of the nonaxlemodded Circuses, the Renegades, 3 of the Finesses and the Eagle are in constant use during holidays, warmer days and seasons with better weather. During bad autumns and winter though they mainly just take up all the space in my room.

i'm hoping this means youve learned how to do 107 high...

Nope. It means it's really difficult to try or use different diabolos for free if the diabolists who're the closest to you live in another country :(

I have no other true vices though (alcohol/tobacco/hookers you name it) so it's OK.

I'm always surprised how few people have Zeekio Diabolos www.zeekio.com (http://www.zeekio.com)

I have about 15 diabolos and half are zeekio.  I prefer my zeekio typhoon to my MB Finesse.  I definately take the zeekio Sidewinder over any other 4 inch diabolo on the market.  I will say that the Zeekio triple threat is the heaviest diabolo I've found and I don't like near as much as my Sundia Wide axel.  Sundia is a great diabolo for the money, just a little pricey.

That would be nice.

Maybe, like, pile all of them in a pyramid.
And then run through it.
With video to prove it.
I'll give you a virtual hug.
Assuming you don't get a concussion from 200 diabolos falling on your head.

I just started getting serious about learning to diabolo about a month ago, so I'm still trying to decide what my first pair should be (before I'm ready for a pair) So far I have one each of;

 Higgins Brothers Anti-Gravity
 Mr.Babache Finesse (G4)
 Henry's Circus (the newer one with the plastic hubs)
 Tiabolo V2
 Sundia Shining (not sure what to call this one - shining cups with a wide fixed axle)

All yellow. So that's 5 so far. I'm waiting for a shop in North America to get some yellow Epics in stock.

Oh, and I'm still using wooden sticks. I was amazed how all of the diabolos, even the Anti-Gravity, were transformed when I replaced the free string that came with some of them with Henry's string.
