well, if you think the spinab would be any better then you are sadly mistaken.

Well, don't bother asking for advice in that case.  Did you not take advice on using Flys over concrete or did you 'not care' then?

1. Could you write in proper sentences with punctuation? At the very least, could you separate your phrases? It takes me a few reads to figure out what you mean. I imagine it's much more challenging for those for whom English isn't their first language (and that's a pretty high percentage here).
2. "some rock looking thing"? I can't think of any piece of a fly that looks like a rock. Could you describe it better or take a photo?
3. Wouldn't it make most sense to ask Nev about ordering whatever piece is broken? It would be cheaper and the flys really are better anyways.

I'd recommend pretty much anything over a spinabolo.. seriously, it's a bad choice given the other bearing options out there.

oh ok.
that didn't happen to me, the hub snapped into two pieces, the cone-ish part and the part that attatches to the axle. And I was using a small axle, so it is different.

i still think that the spinab is one of the greatest diabs ever made, they just got sloppy over the years, the first ones that were made were great.. small, fast and noisy. great little things

back to the original question... i would go for the pro version, however unless you can get one of the older models that really work well i would stick to a fly, or you could trade the bearing in a spinab for a fly one and create a flyab.... http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=4022.0 (http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=4022.0)

bollocks. the spinab is a diabolo milestone.

if by milestone you mean shoddy product that copied an idea from another company (yep, the yoho was already around at that point).. then yes, absolutely a milestone.

I recall playing with the very first spinabolo prototype in the spintastics warehouse/office.. it was ok. It was new and cool, but it had a laundry list of problems.. most of which made it into the production versions as well. I used them for a long time for lack of access to other options.. that has long since changed.

They have gotten better over the years (overall) but still have a list of issues (as evidence by the posts in this thread and others)

Or we could talk about the 'awesome' Duncan diabolo and its issues. Or how yoho have great axles..

If you want bearing, get a fly. End of.

Sure, happy to.. there is a whole thread for it in fact, just a couple posts down the board :)

no in fact they've definitely got worse to the point of being unusable. the yoho design was completely different for a start, granted they did it first.

if by milestone you mean shoddy product that copied an idea from another company (yep, the yoho was already around at that point).. then yes, absolutely a milestone.

then what does that make your design?..... 'cough' and also i seem to remember someone marketing a kit for a finnesse using the 'shoddy products' guts. the name of whom slips my mind............. oh thats right, i remember.

Somebody just got punched in the guts. Slightly ironic that you call it a copycat design after you look at the duncans axle..
Title: Re: Spinabolo Classic or pro?
Post by: kyo on April 14, 2009, 06:08:10 PM
not sure how this became about me?

Anyway, the spinabolo is not the best choice.. as most everybody above has already said.
