I can now do a wrap start, stay in low2 for a little while and do a trick that is fairly common but i have no idea what it's called^^ i need to learn corrections. I can only fix things a little at the beginning. So when i cark it, i have no chance anymore..

2 red Sundia Flies
 ..for me,

1 blue Sundia Fly
 ..for ma mate.

I am kind of scared because Switzerland does not have a free-trade-contract-thingy and I might pay additional taxes...
But anyway:
Thanks Nev
Thanks £-to-CHF-exchange-rates, which are so amazing atm.

If you want the bearings then get the Flys. If you like the shape of the diabolo but don't need the bearings, then get the Suns. The Taibolos are great too, but they feel quite different. If you haven't tried them but really liked the feeling of the Flys, then perhaps you'd be safest getting the Flys/Suns.
Also, if you like the Finesse with wide axles, keep in mind that the Suns/Flys have wider axles than the Taibolos.
I loved the bearings and the wide axle. I just ordered 2 Flies (actually 3; 2 for me and one for a mate) yesterday.

I'd say tiabolo's for sure!! It's the diabolo I'm using the most
Hmm.. I shall order those as well when I have too much money...

Name: Fabs
Location: Winterthur, Switzerland (near Zurich)

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?
forever? Just doing nothing, really. like any kid does. I only really started learning tricks maybe 2 years ago.

2. What or who got you started?
A guy at a boyscout camp who could do a few arm/leg and some darkside tricks.

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
Doing and trying whatever I want the way I want.

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
Usually around 1-2 hours, two, three, four times a week..

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
I have actually once but I'm not too proud about that. I sang in a choir and we did a little street program. For one song the conductor asked if anybody could do some kind of juggling. ...well, I could've done worse  ;)

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ?
I can handle a devil stick but I hardly ever pick it up. Also I get out my pois every once in a while. (Fire Pois for the win)
Oh, and I absolutely love fire spitting. (is that the correct english term for it?)

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
I'm fairly happy with the wide axle Finesse but I tried a Fly last year and I'm probably about to order two..
Henry's short carbon.
I use Henry's yellow.. because I can hardly get any other..

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
I can't do more than one yet. YET!

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
Infinite suicide with genocide exit.

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?
Vertax genocide. Not very special around here if I look at the videos around but I think I've only seen it being done once in real life..

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
Vertax and 2D

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?
-William's 'Australia's Got Talent'-Acts (congratulations on that!) endless list of youtube Diabolists

Hi Guys.
I've been playing Diabolo for quite a while. Feeling very comfortable with one D I was thinking about starting 2D and I started looking around for different models.
I've been using a Finesse (wide axle) for about a year now. Before that I had a Henry Jazz (yes I know, shame on me..).
Last year at the Swiss Juggling Convention I got my hands on a Fly from somebody and I was stunned about how awesome it was.
So here's the thing:
I was about to order two Flies from Nev's store (I would have ordered already if he wasn't on holidays) and only then I saw the Taibolos. Now, being amazed by the Fly whilst also reading some fantastic comments on the Taiabolo, I am really not sure what to get...
