Gear / Bodyheight, width and Diabolo

Ok, I have a strange and quite possibly stupid question I hope someone can answer.  

I wonder what impact the bodies height and musclethickness have on your Diabolo.

I have a couple of older vids of Tony and  when I compare them to his new ones he has a lot less arm muscles and simply looks thinner. Personally I think his technique also looks both faster and better on these vids (even though he has new tricks now).

I also have noticed that the people I admire the most in terms of how their technique looks (not the difficulty), all seem to be pretty short and have very thin arms. This seems to affect the speed of the Diabs revolving. Is this true?

The reason I´m asking is because I´ve grown about seven centimeters the past few months and added about 4 kgs to my arms. I am now 193 centimeters long and weigh 75 kgs.

Will this affect my Diabolo technique at all and is being taller and bulkier an advantage or a disadvantage in terms of looks of the technique? Obviously, a chesthigh string for a taller person is longer than it is for the shorter I mean. Also, about how tall are the MFP and Ryo Yabe. I like their technique the most. I´ve met the MFP at two EJC:s and I remember most of them being quite short and thin (except for Priam who was taller than me)

Sorry for a very long message and crappy english/spelling. Please don´t flame me too much if these questions appears stupid.
