Yep, it's my favorite by a long way. And just a little tip. If you can afford to buy in bulk because it makes you life easier because it'll take longer to run out and it works and cheaper per meter as well  :)

Basically Sean has got it in one... as per-usual!

Choosing a Diabolo
I thought I'd add in the video as well just to help you and it'll explain a lot about what you need to know and outline a lot of the basics.

yeah basically Sean has got it in one, some tricks you can't do such as elevator (an easy crowd pleaser) and you will learn and pick up bad habits. Which as Sean has pointed out. However, the huge amount of spin you get makes up for the bad technique. So this makes doing tricks which are harder easier such as vertax (when you get to that point).

Choosing a Diabolo
This is a neat little video about the different types.

Are the fire diabolos smaller than regular diabolos? (like finesse) How big is the comet or meteor compared to finesse?

Compared to a 3G a comet is about an inch or so shorter and about the same around the cup. However the weight difference is HUGE and the string you use is much thicker meaning spin is lost really quickly. For example if I were to do a backside into cats cradle with a lot of spin on the diabolo I could do 3-4 tosses and then it would start to wobble because a lack of spin...
So knowing several ways of adding spin as well... other wise the audience (if your thinking of performing) will get bored...
Whipping the diabolo looks good because if the flames are large enough it looks like the fire almost jumps, it's very cool.

I have never seem a meteor unfortunately
Fire diabolo vital statistics: diameter: 110mm, width: 101mm, weight: 373g
Those stats are from the firetoys website.

I wanne buy an fire diabolo and use it. My questions are.. Wich one is the best?
In answer to that you don't know. Everyone likes different things... Hence the huge variety of diabolos. The best way to find out is try them out because they are a heavy investment from      £40-£80  so they aren't cheap for diabolos and if you don't like the one you bought you wasted the money.
If you do get one the biggest problem you will find is the balancing is pretty poor. But This can be simply because more wick is out on one side or the other or even more fuel on one wick!!
But take your time and make sure your 100% certain and just because its more expensive doesn't mean it's better suited for you.

Can  anyone recommend some tricks to do on a fire diabolo that will look good. So stuff like suicides and the coffee grinder don't look to great cause you can only really see the diabolo.
Thanks! :)

Well... kevlar string is almost a ship rope. It's not going to melt

actually, sorry to say it but I've been melting quite a lot... and its really annoying!
Also what is the best fire diabolo string to use? And i've used lamp oil recently after using Turp. Lamp oil burns much quicker and doesn't smell as much.
Can anyone recommend some good fuel?

I just learnt to do genocide and continuous suicide on my fire diabolo with the tips of my sticks on fire! :D

Hey there.
I had a lot of trouble getting this right.
The key to the trick is making sure the diabolo isn't spinning to fast and timing.
I found that instead of making a circle around the axle, make a D. Also, try to get the sticks opposite each other. E.g at 12 o'clock and at 6.
Hope this helps. Good luck!  :)

I've had a look haven't found much :/ I guess you may just have to pay the postage on it. Or you could check out ebay and see if there's anything on there. Good luck! :P

I've got to the point with my fire diabolo that i want to spruce things up a bit... and i thought that i could set my sticks on fire. I have a wooden pair and 2 fibre glass or carbon fibre ones with the plastic coating (you know the ones :) ) and does anyone know how i can get them burning WITHOUT setting setting all of the stick on fire...?
