Gear / New Sundia Evo5 G2
« on: March 29, 2016, 10:29:52 PM »
Here is the new Sundia Evo5 G2 diabolo with frosted translucent cups and solid stability ring.
This time the axle set is switchable between 5 Bearing and Fixed axle  :-D
The 5 Bearing axle sets will be available to buy separately (they also fit straight onto the Evo G1 & G2 cups so you can convert your old Evo into a 5 bearing)

I also have some new narrow fixed axle sets for both the Evo range and for the Shining / Icy / Nimble / Fly etc

All will be available at BJC for those attending and then will be up online for general sale from 5th April (when I get back from Scotland)
Cheers

Gear / NEW Sundia Triple Bearing "Shining" Diabolo
« on: May 07, 2009, 11:21:00 PM »
OK I don't often start new topics but this one is worthy.

Sundia have been quietly developing a revolutionary new successor to the Fly diabolo for some time. Following a few early problems and a lot of testing, its nearly ready for final release.  It features 3 separate bearings which work independently of each other to ensure a smooth quiet operation.   I have a few (unofficial) final testing models available to buy and evaluate.

EDIT - all the samples have now been sold - no more will be available until the official product release this summer.  2nd Edit - The shining diabolo is now available.

Thanks to all who bought one - I look forward to hearing your comments and you will all receive a gift upon final release.

NOTE - if you are the curious type and take them apart to see how things work - please take care not to loose the 4 small plastic washers inside - they still work without these, but performance is better with them in place.  2nd Edit - the official model have these built in to the design now.

I'll try to answer some of your general questions later in this thread

Gear / Diabolomoves and GISOL
« on: September 10, 2008, 10:26:37 PM »
Hello all

Following a nightmare with my previous hosts GISOL (never ever ever use this hosting company) I'm glad to say that the diabolomoves shop is now back online at www.diabolomoves.co.uk

I've switched to a new (very trustworthy) host 34sp located in Manchester only 4 miles from my house so no more problems.

Sorry it took so long to get back online - I had to re-script over 200 files to make it work on the new servers.

As an apology for the lack of service lately - All forum members can receive a 5% discount on everything in the store until the end of September - just use the discount code "dcaforum" when you order.

WARNING TO ALL, my old host GISOL are a bunch of fraudulent thieves (never use them) - all will be fine for the first year - then they will screw you.

This is a highly dubious company - deal with them at you peril
Any doubters should google "GISOL" & "FRAUD" (I wish I'd have done this before) - but trust me -  just NEVER EVER USE THIS COMPANY

(edited to remove the rant details whilst I get the legal stuff sorted for my chargeback attempts)

Vendors / Diabolomoves.co.uk - Shop for Sundia (Fly & Sun Series)
« on: September 13, 2007, 10:27:12 AM »
Pleased to be bringing the best Eastern Diabolo's to the Western market   www.diabolomoves.co.uk

Sundia's excellent Fly diabolo is a bearing diabolo like no other - Used and part designed by Ryo Yabe, it is beautifully crafted and stays perfectly in line where other bearing diabolo's would tilt.  The wide axle opens up a variety of new tricks including gravity defying finger grinds and multiple wraps.
It is available in a wide range of vivid colours and is very easy to keep clean due to the flexible plastic cup material.  All the colours (except black) are translucent so LED light kits will shine through (though the LED kits work best with the Glow Version)
The ability to "Fix" the axle means it can also be used as a standard diabolo (no bearing).  It is equally at home in this mode and is extremely stable for 2 or 3d.

Sundia's brand new Sun Series is a fixed axle diabolo with the same characteristics and feel of the Fly, but features rubber cups for added durability on rough surfaces (concrete etc).

The cup material is similar to a Henry's Circus or Diabig with a high gloss finish.  The Sun Series shares the same shape wide axle as the Fly which makes it extremely stable and accelerates to high speed very quickly.  (the axle is the stainless steel version from the Fly Fixed Axle Set)

We also stock Gong-Qun Taibolo diabolo's as used by William Wei Laing Lin and the MHD team.

This is also a fixed axle diabolo with rubber cups for durability on rough surfaces.  The Taibolo weighs 260g and is ideal for those who like Henry's Circus with the hub kits as these come with a curved lightweight hub as standard.

Sundia's handsticks, string and other accessories including the new Gold & Silver carbon handticks, LED kits are also available.

Thank you once more for your support

Gear / Sundia Sun Series Diabolos
« on: September 04, 2007, 05:35:43 PM »
The new diabolo from Sundia (makers of the Fly) is here.

The Sun Series is a rubber cupped diabolo with the same shape and feel of the Fly but this time the cups are a much more durable rubber material which should stand up to a lot more abuse on concrete etc.

The downside (for some) is that it is fixed axle only (no bearing option) - It has the more durable stainless steel axle from the Fly fixed axle set.



Colours out so far are White, Black, Green, Blue ,Crystal (transparent), Red, Yellow, Orange & Pink
All are in stock at www.diabolomoves.co.uk

Gear / Taibolo Diabolos (Gong-Qun)
« on: June 15, 2007, 12:08:26 AM »
I have just received some samples of the Taibolo (Gong-Qun) brand that William now uses (& helped design with diaboloists in mind).

If the interest is there, I'll start importing these as well as the Fly's.

I've only had 10 mins to play with them so far but they seem just as nice as when I tried Williams at BJC.

They are very much like a diabig cup (not as hard plastic as the Fly's) but SOOOO shiny and better manufactured - you can see you're reflection in the cups as you shuffle  ;D  The hubs are like the circus POM curved and the axles are like a slightly wider diabig / yoho / circus hybrid. (These are FIXED AXLE diabolo's by the way)

Vital statistics are
Diameter = 130mm (same as a Circus - Finesse is 133)
Width = 146mm (wider than a stock Circus (140) or Finesse (136)
Weight = 260g

Colours available are
Purple - with a pearl effect (it doesn't show on the pics but they change colour depending on the light).

White

Black

Dark Orange

+ One other? (currently in production to replace the apple green)

I'm away camping at the weekend and (weather permitting) I'll get to session them properly and post an honest opinion on how they play next week.

Edit - Shop is now open - www.diabolomoves.co.uk

Gear / Name That Diab
« on: July 14, 2005, 01:18:01 PM »
Hello forum

This is my first post & I was hoping someone could tell me what type of diabolo I own? (was hoping to post a picture but don't know how to get it off my computer & onto the forum).

I have 2 diabs of the same make both about 10+ years old - vital statistics are:

size 130mm diameter
weight 300 grams
height 150mm

Both have rubber cups.

Axles are aluminium with black plastic hubs (with large steel plate washers and hex bolt to hold them in within cup)

One is solid purple (quite dark) & the other is purple / white pattern (a bit like a radiant pattern but not quite).

Got them in my unicycle / snakeboard days (probably from mushy pea when it was near piccadilly records) and never even got past the basic 1d stuff of throwing & catching (RA orbis was about as advanced as I got).  That was 10+ years ago but I went camping 2 weeks ago, met a fellow diab player & got hooked.  Got the diabology DVD and am now doing stuff I never dream't of before (pulled off consistent genocides both ways yesterday).

Was thinking of having a go at two, but here is the prob.  Both my diabs looked fine when I dug them out of storage 2 weeks ago.  Since then however, one has developed a rather fatal looking split right through the cup around a full half of the diameter (near the hub).  Tried to glue and was ok for a while but then split again (and was a bit off balance).

As they are simelar in size weight to a circus - could I get away with buying just one circus (to go with my existing unknown make diab) or should I bite the bullet and get two new ones?

Sorry for the essay - just v pleased to be progressing and eager for more.

Any advice would be more than welcome.
