Gear / Re: Oiling Sundia Shining Triple Bearing Diabolo Bearings
« on: March 06, 2016, 09:58:26 PM »
Technically the bearing has really thick gel like lubricant on it from the factory. So adding more oil might make it more silent. I haven't actually tested it out since I'm not bothered with the sound.

In yo-yo's people constantly wash and oil their bearings. But bearing diabolo is not exactly the same as yo-yo. If you try it out let me know how it went!

Tomas, would you be interested in sending one pair of sticks for Finnish Diabolo Festival (FDC, www.fdc2015.org) for players to try? I'm thinking we could have it for everybody to try in the gym and give it as a prize for somebody at the end of festival?

This way you would get some more easy advertisement for J-Sliding.

What do you think?

Maxmaestro, i'm using one of those led filming things. I think it's been in our every video we have filmed past 2 years. Usually it's stays hidden outside of the footage ;)

I think my one is one of the cheapest I got my hands on: http://www.amazon.com/Yongnuo-Professional-300pcs-sheets-Camera/dp/B00AZFE5DS

We have been running promotional campaign for our diabolo online store. This is done by releasing basic level diabolo tutorials. As this has been bit commercial I haven't promoted it here. However there are quite a lot of videos now so I'm putting link here if people are interested. So far there are 19 videos released. We are releasing new tutorial on mondays and thursdays. The next 18 videos are already filmed so I can already promise this project to continue at least for next 9 weeks.

All the videos are meant for Finnish as we are trying to sell more products locally. I'm sorry about the language which most of you won't be understanding at all. So far we don't have resources to translate and subtitle or dub them. They will remain only in Finnish for now. I hope they are filmed so that you still can understand what's happening.

I hope there will be new and old tricks for everybody!

ps. please ask from me if you are about to put them on other websites.

Haha, you're not spoiling anything.  :-D

As I see you posting this picture of the yo-yo again and again I'm inclined to comment on it. Now take the picture you just posted and compare it again to pictures of Sundia Evolution. In your pic there the weight rim is placed about 1/3 of each edge. Being about 1/3 wide. If you look at the Sundia Evo you can see that it clearly is placed closer to the first third of diabolo cup. Being quite a lot on the hub side. I think this is what Kamikace and I mean when we say it's little center weighted.

What comes to rim weight on yo-yos... well. There are good that have weight on the rim and good ones with weight on the middle. If I would defend the rim weight here I could take the classic hybrids like Hitman, Dark Magic. Weight on the outer rim and good throws. I know that they are old. Hitman being...from 03 or 04?

If you're looking for fresh examples. From the top of my head I would say Protostar that has the weight inside the cup but on the far side of the rim. And that yoyo still being massively popular model and generally thought as amazing throw with good price point. If you grab a metal yo-yo you can find the weight on the rim pretty easily on quite many yo-yos, name dropping C3 Dark Sonic, Gnarwhal, 888x, SPYY Supra as they are sitting on my table and I can see clearly where the weight ring is placed. I don't think these yo-yos are anyway less stable than the yo-yo's with rim weight more to the middle.

I wouldn't go as far as saying that having weight in mid rim makes diabolo or yo-yo better. There are many ways you can make a good diab or yoyo. But what I would like to see is the Sundia Evo having the weight ring little bit further on the edge. I hope this post clears up my reasoning to you.

I agree that it should be in the rim. However that's also the place where diabolo gets most of the hits. This would cause lot of stress on the metal. The way I see it, this is currently a compromise between durability and inertia.

Also the other way around if it would indestructable diabolo, like a wolverine of diabolos,  destroy everything it hits.
