Was taking some pics of the Evo5 diabolo's and this one turned out really nice

Not been much written about these online yet - anyone care to share a review or two?

Ps anyone care to guess where the picture was taken?

Looking awesome - my back aches just thinking about the hours spent pic king up diabolos

Nice post Wiz - the info regarding the Sundia stuff is not quite rights though....

The Evo g2 has always come with the plastic type stability ring (at least those supplied since mid to late 2014)
Only the original g1 version had the metal ring (and possibly the very first batch of g2 cups were shipped with metal rings) - but since then all Evo's have had rings made of some kind of plastic
I do still have a very limited supply of the ones with metal rings
And at sale price too !

Otherwise all Evo are currently G2 with the plastic type stability rings. - the G3 cups are not yet available and won't be for some time in Europe
Here is the currently available Evo models (inc 2 special colours)

And the bearing Diabolo you speak of is actually a new 5 bearing Diabolo - in Europe it's officially called the Evo 5° Diabolo - Pronounced Evo Five Degree
That is available here

Oh I wish I could attend this, I have very fond memories of FDC

Highly recommended for anyone considering it.

Have fun and share a Moomin ****tale or two

Gear / Re: Sundia Icy Triple Bearing Diabolo - vibration?
« on: June 08, 2015, 11:41:29 AM »
No it should not be vibrating at all - the Icy normally spins very true - sounds like something is not quite in place right - probably one of the hubs is not fully seated into the cup - give the nuts a really good tighten to pull everything together (you can't really overtighten the triple bearing set without extreme force - sometimes they feel quite tight but will still turn a few more times before they are fully done up)

That's a nice impartial review Ronnie - Thanks for finding the time to talk about these.

I won't give a review as such simply because I am a seller of Sundia and want to remain impartial, but I'll give some technical clarification on some points you raised...

The turn you talk about when you catch some other Diabolos off axle was very much a consideration in the design of the Evo - the aircraft grade aluminium side parts to the axle and the hubs are designed to minimise string friction if you catch off axle while the stainless steel central part (the bit the string is in contact with most) provides durability - and the cups have also been given special treatment to minimise string / stick friction - they come out of the mould shiny and smooth but are then sandblasted as a secondary treatment to reduce string friction and keep everything much more stable and make corrections much easier.  The end result is a Diabolo which is both relatively lightweight at 250g but also stays in line and maintains stability and spin much better than the previous offerings and is more stable than much heavier diabolos.

I'm not the best at integrals either but given that they have exceptional stability and the ability to hold spin at very low speeds ive been told by some very good intergral players who have tried them that although they were primarily designed for numbers they work extreamly well for this purpose also

Basically the Sundia EVO was designed from scratch (money no object) to offer the best possible technical fixed axle Diabolo available at any money today! - It was designed and manufactured by people who are very good at, and care very much about progressing Diabolo - even the people who work the machines in the factory are world class Diabolo players!

Edit - I can definitely say these are simply superb for long 2d combos - that one i do know ;)

Imho the hurricane does an ok job for a cheap like for like copy of a Sundia design.

The difference is in the bearing quality and some design practicalities - Sundia use only German made high quality bearings  -  the shining is almost silent and is made in a factory in Taiwan where every worker is a high quality diabolo player ( even the factory machine workers play Diabolo to a very high level ) - the juggle dream stuff is made in China

Gear / Re: Sundia Suns for 3d
« on: June 30, 2014, 12:01:47 AM »
I'll start this reply with the fact that I still can't run 3d - but i do know a lot about Sundia diabolos....

Firstly - Sundia Suns come in 2 weights currently (although the lighter version is now discontinued- but you might still find some in shops)

From people who are very good at 3d and more I've been told that Suns both types are very good for numbers because they stay straight and gain speed fast.

For learning i know that the heavier version are better because the extra weight keeps things spinning and in line longer - though once you find the shuffle they can feel a little heavy with 3 on the string.
You can customise the weight on Sundia's so you should be able to find the right weight to suit you.

The newest Sundia (the EVO) are the best of both worlds and are very popular for those learning 4d & 5d- they spin like a heavy Diabolo but are quite light - but they are expensive compared to Suns/Taibolos.

I could do a review, but I'm probably not the best person to do so given my vested interest - better to wait for some unbiased objective opinions

Sundia's have moved to the USB rechargeable LED kit which is only available in blue / white.
The other led kits have now been discontinued.

I do still have stock of the rainbow LED kits (changes slowly through 7 colours) and possibly a few of the older green/red ones
