Gear / Damaged Diabolos
« on: July 05, 2005, 10:15:28 AM »
After a small discussion in the cleaning thread, and it seeming like I'm the only one stupid enough to use my diabolo on concrete and scratch and scar it all over, I thought I'd see what all you veterans had done to diabolos over time?

Compared to some sports, diabolos last forever it seems, but I'm sure some have given up and died right? Anybody got any interesting diabolo-death stories?

I was thinking, with metal hubs and friction and whatnot, a poorly maintained diabolo (especially if used at the beach) might snap in half during a particularly harsh trick. Not good for the owner, but it'd be cool to see!

So, anybody...?

Gear / Durability...?

Started Diaboloing again recently. Done it on and off for years but never with any decent equipment.

This week I got a Henry Jazz through, and due to the rain have just been messing about outside.
I used it in my garden for the first time just now, and already it is rather scratched. It spins a lot quicker than my older diabolos so does a lot more damage to itself when it hits the floor!

Just wondering how long the average diabolo lasts? Obviously it will depend how often I drop it. I'm just wondering if certain diabolos are better suited to using in different places, as I've seen plenty of serious diaboloists working outside so it's obvioulsy doable, but at this rate, my diabolo will be destroyed in a week or so!

Sorry for the novice question, but any help would be appreciated.
