i have to agree substantial and relevant updates should be more common than seamingly non necessary ones
ive never tried g2's but i really like my g'3s i think a smooth material is overdue from babache
i really like my fly's but i would use my babaches way more if they were smooth

also they should really get around releasing that bearing mod

links people links!!!!
and yes i know how to use google
(edit) okay found it
the vertax kit does sound like hubstacks and any ideas what the speed ring is?

oh the diabolos ofek is using are his regulars right?
if they are test  G4's
he should drop us a review
but I doubt they are g4 he used what looked like the same diabolos in the ejc video and i doubt they had test units back then

my mistake i did the conversion and yes as dumb as it sounds ordering from nev is in general 7 to ten dollars cheaper than from I also guess that they are also just pricier than Nev.
Well i now know from who ill be ordering a Set of suns from and maybe a fly in a couple of months

ETAmark are you in the USA
you mean ordering from was more expensive than from nev all the way across the atlantic
that makes no sense i thought the dollar was way weaker than the pound

Related story
I am from Ecuador, small country in South America, and for about a year diabolo or chinese yo-yo's as they were called over there were the most popular thing ever. Everyone had them, you could go to any type market and get one, grocery stores, open air markets, small family run businesses, sporting good stores, everyone had them. The fad lasted about a year as with most things, I think the fad before diabolos was tamagotchi. So number wise Ecuador probably had the most number of people that played diabolo at one point in time. I obviously could be completely wrong, but as i remember it every guy in my school had one and all my friends outside of school did too. The popularity of it in Ecuador is what first made me learn of diabolo, but like others i left it behind, then i came to the US and decided to youtube diabolo and thats when i saw the first collaboration and my mind was blown i immediately ordered a diabolo and started again and now I've been diaboloing for two years

Videos / Re: Duncan yo-yo video ripping off users' videos
« on: February 24, 2009, 05:58:35 PM »
well my opinion on this
i dont think Duncan made this video at all. It certainly seems so, but it looks more like a badly edited user made video. this video has been around for a long time i remeber watching it about two or three years ago when i was first starting. I agree with everyone else i dont think its okay to take other people videos and just use them. But come on guys, its the internet, its completely anonymous, in a way, so dont expect everyone to be as honest and respectful of someones intellectual property as we are here
Im just saying if someone thinks its really cool or something they are likely going to put it in some sort of compilation or something like that.
Its sad, but it happens all the time

i completely agree my mr b aluminum sticks and mr b yellow string is my favorite combo
even though i like henrys yellow after playing with mr b's stuff i found it too stiff and tense i like the springiness? of it

best diabolo kit for me mr b yellow string with mr b aluminum sticks and my fixed axle fly's

« on: February 24, 2009, 01:23:19 AM »
so its pretty similar
feeling wise
meaning the pink and yellow stuff
because im hating my henrys stuff right now

« on: February 21, 2009, 05:13:01 AM »
okay so i know this is a two year bump
but i had some questions
I like the Henrys yellow but it seriously take me like a week to break it in, then i switched to Mr. B yellow it was good to go from the begining my problem is due to it wearing out quickly i run out of it really soon so i wanted to buy a bigger roll but I order from and they only have 25m of it then i saw the pink string and they have a 100m roll of it which i would like to get, but Im not sure if they are the same.
Can anyone that has tried both the yellow and pink Mr. B tell me if they are anywhere near the same or do they feel completely different?

we know
but people that live outside of europe which is the place most of these people are from dont usually hear from anyone unless its in a video.
Especially in the US where diaboloing is not as popular as juggling

General / Re: Unsung diaboloists
« on: February 17, 2009, 05:42:54 PM »
well they are not unsung but i havent seen a lot from the MFP guys especially Trash and Jibe. Tony is obviously still around and getting better and better and Priam was in the EJC 08 video i think, but some of the other guys have yet to be heard of in at least the last two years. Anyone know of the whereabouts of Trash and Jibe and also Batiste

i have two questions
who carries these diabolos in the US and what type of diabolo does langerz use it looks like a fixed fly
but smaller

im sure people have asked him that a million times and
langerz is the washer plastic?
it doesent make any sense for it to be plastic they should have known it would melt

yeah i think ive figured out the reject part

i learnt the reject by looking at lz doing finger loops
i tried it and go it

they are hard

lz makes his stuff look so easy

Gear / Re: Which axle for 2d?
« on: January 10, 2009, 08:47:01 PM »
you can do any trick with bearing except string climbs or tricks that involve friction of the string with a wrap

sprinklers are possible and even easier with bearings

but if you are just learning 2 diabolos i recommend going with a fixed axle
